Indulge your sweet tooth and your political passions tomorrow in Waukesha.  I received an e-mail from Allô! Chocolat tonight promoting a special visit tomorrow to downtown Waukesha. Hello lovers of all things chocolate! US Senate candidate Ron Johnson, along with State Senate candidate Rich Zipperer and State Representative Bill Kramer will be stopping in our store this Monday at 3:00 […]

It’s hard to imagine an environment more difficult to try to make accurate predictions of the larger electoral trend.  Will the Republicans take the House of Representatives?  Probably.  Will the U.S. Senate go to the Republicans?  Possibly. In the case of the House of Representatives, Republicans took advantage of the country’s mood and continually expanded […]

A number of liberals tut-tutted when Ron Johnson’s home newspaper endorsed the incumbent US Senator Russ Feingold.

Fun stuff in the Russ Feingold – Ron Johnson race. The Johnson campaign has caught Feingold breaking one of his “garage door promises” and it concerns Feingold’s favorite subject – campaign finance. In 1992, gasoline was $1.18 a gallon, Brett Favre started his career with the Packers, the national debt was $4 trillion, and Russ […]

Somehow Weigel didn’t want to miss it. Writing at Slate Magazine, Weigel comments on the last appeals of a desperate party: “Citizens United is hurting us,” says Michael Turner, a Democratic activist running for sheriff in Eau Claire. “We’ve got loads and gobs of undisclosed money on issue ads. Because there’s no disclosure, there’s no […]
