Wow, you had to reach really, really far to come up with one nice thing to say about Kasten, huh?

No, I can find more rather easily, but this comment was more about the calendar.
What about Kasten’s driving record? He was the Jeff Wood of Wisconsin politics before Jeff Wood.

Not quite. Kasten was arrested once, prompting the whole “A senator we can be proud of” slogan of the Garvey campaign. Kasten’s arrest also inspired the “Bob Kasten School of Driving.”
Not to excuse the behavior, but Kasten’s arrest was also at a time when such things were more readily excused. It’s really shocking in this day and age that a five-time OWI is being let off the hook by Assembly Democrats.

You attended UW-Madison?

No. Mike Mathias, Tim Rock, and I are all UW-Milwaukee grads. I was the good-looking one.
