Scott Walker’s budget calls for an end to universities reporting sexual assaults

Among the more mind-blowing policy provisions of Gov.

Polls, Democracy and Right To Work:

Over the past several days a number of proponents of the Right to Work legislation currently sailing through the Wisconsin legislature have been touting polling figures provided by the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute.

Dumbass of The Year

First off, let me say that I wouldn’t give this award out to just anyone, or without due consideration.
