Back to school

Waukesha Freeman August 28, 2014 Page A5 Opinion Back to school We interrupt this summer for school. For so many parents and children, the return to the school routine has begun already. George Orwell wrote of his years in school, “So far as Crossgate goes, it also seems, when I look back, that all of my good memories are of summer.” Summer, we’re told, runs from the summer solstice to the fall... [Read more]

Did the dog eat the ballots?

What does Amelia Earhart, the Lindbergh baby, and 110 ballots in Monroe, Wisconsin have in common? They have all disappeared without a trace.  According to the Capital Times, One county will certify its election results in the 17th Senate district Democratic primary recount about 110 votes short of the initial tally, due to a set of missing ballots. After official results were counted, Ernie Wittwer... [Read more]

Liberal tantrums have no end

Waukesha Freeman August 21, 2014 Page A6 Opinion Liberal tantrums have no end  Ryan’s book targeted for vandalism I have yet to meet the proverbial white angry male at Republican gatherings or at tea party events. Not even the proverbial white angry female. Or, at least if I have, they seem to have left their anger at home. I’m not saying they’re not out there. I’m sure there are more than... [Read more]

Why can’t Donovan win a race for mayor? Let us count the reasons. For starters, no alderman has won a campaign for mayor since the election of 1910, when Emil Seidel was elected heading up a Socialist wave that was historically... [Read more]

Walker makes case against Doyle third term

Waukesha Freeman Page A6 Opinion August 14, 2014 Walker makes case against Doyle third term Burke’s experience is also her weakness Gov. Scott Walker and company were in Waukesha on Tuesday night. They were not here to partake in any of the state Assembly victory parties but to launch the fall campaign in earnest. Walker hit on the two themes that will probably be central to his campaign. The first... [Read more]

Just a pathetic and dirty cheap shot

I get the frustration of Aaron Perry’s campaign, but pushing a story that Scott Allen donated to Bill Kramer twice as some sort of big deal is just cheap and pathetic. Michael Brander is really new to blogging so he might not have thought this hit piece through, but it is slimy. It is guilt by association, and a very tenuous association at that. How would Perry like to be judged by the content... [Read more]

Not waiting for Grothman

I am aware of the heroic step State Sen Glenn Grothman took to challenge a sitting majority leader of his own party in a Republican primary. Conservatives should be very grateful for the political risk taken by Grothman in challenging and defeating Mary Panzer. I also get the “Grothman gives good quote” argument. That’s probably what Charlie Sykes meant when he wrote, “What... [Read more]
