Another Desperate And Irresponsible Attempt To Smear The GOP

Apparently I am not the only desperate liberal blogger who wants to smear the GOP in their own words…about that grant to UW-Madison to study the sleep habits of fruit flies and mice. Just today Bruce Murphy in his column Murphy’s Law at wrote just a bit about Representative Robin Vos’ (R – Burlington) […]

What follows is a guest blog by Saul Newton. This was originally posted on but has been reposted here at the request of the author.

For those of you in Madison…I think you know who you are:

Robin Vos is a petty, spiteful little man

If there is a smaller, more petty, more spiteful human being in Wisconsin than Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, I haven’t met him or her. President Obama’s visit to the University of Wisconsin last month could prove costly.

The new Speaker of the State Assembly says UW’s decision to cancel classes for the President’s visit is […]

Could Robin Vos be Wisconsin’s Eric Cantor?

Last month, former House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost the Republican primary for the seat he held to Dave Brat, a relatively unknown tea party candidate who Cantor outspent by a wide margin.

Apparently Republican Speaker of the Assembly Robin Vos doesn’t think redistricting reform is worth considering. “Nobody cares,” Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Burlington, finally concluded earlier this week as he tried, repeatedly, to dismiss suggestions by the Wisconsin State Journal Editorial Board that he should convene a public hearing on redistricting reform.

“I hear from newspapers, […]

According to a report by Jason Stein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Republican Gov. Scott Walker has indicated he wants to use the next biennial budget in February 2015 to a potential tax overhaul. Among the changes Gov. Walker is likely to consider are eliminating or flattening the income tax to dropping technical colleges from […]

Assembly Speaker Vos supports Kenosha casino, but where does Gov. Walker stand?

I wonder what Gov. Scott Walker will do. “While the decision is ultimately the governor’s, I hope he will listen to us as we continue to communicate that new jobs in Racine and Kenosha are just as important as jobs created in any other area of our state,” wrote Vos, who represents western Racine County.
