Politics shaken, not stirred
Or at least a large group of people in ill-favor by the current mayor of Waukesha. I wonder if I made the list.

Ooooohhhhh. The Mayor has a naughty and nice list. When his parents take him to Brookfield Square this Christmas and sit him on Jolly ol’ Saint Nick’s lap, maybe the Mayor can share it with him.
Big deal. I can’t imagine anyone is afraid of this mayor.
If there is, and you’re not, I’d be surprised.
Can I take back my vote?
Yeah, I didn’t think so….
I sure hope he grows into the job. Quickly.
I’m sure I would be on it.
Just remember who coined the phrase, “Scrima reign of terror”. Of course, you’re welcome to use it.
April 20, 2011 cant’ come soon enough.
What order do you think #1 and #2 are? Dan Duchniak and Lori Luther, or Lori Luther and Dan Duchniak?
A list, huh? Yikes – we’re probably all on it. Put an extra encryption on our email addresses, would ya? I have to live in this hell hole for 3 more years.
Give it a rest, he has only been in office for two months. I think your insinuation of a recall being done is quite premature. Even with as many people that were unhappy with Mayor Nelson being elected, the citizens still let the process work itself out. through the election. Mayor Scrima has done nothing thus far that I can see would be grounds for being recalled (Yes, I know you really don’t need a reason, just signatures). There are just some people like you who will not be happy until he is gone, no matter what he does.
I wonder what poster named “Dean” on this blog made these comments before the Waukesha Mayoral election? Sure doesn’t seem like someone who supported or voted for the new Mayor.
“Enough people were willing to believe the fiction that Scima was spouting throughout the campaign.”
“However, given the half-truths, double-speak, and general obfuscation we saw from Scrima, I am not optimistic. I hope that I am proven wrong.”
“I understand that I will never see eye-to-eye with Nelson on Obama, WEAC, Doyle, and Barrett, but since Scrima seems to be either stupid, a liar, or both, I could not bring myself to vote for him. Taken in total, Nelson has not been a bad Mayor, and deserves to be re-elected over a bad challenger.”
My guess on the list:
City Attorney’s Office
Thanks for calling me out, Steve. You are correct, I have been an unabashed and vocal critic of Mayor Scrima since before the election. What’s your point? I think Scrima was dishonest with voters before the election. I do not think he has the background or experience to be Mayor of a city the size of Waukesha, and it is showing. He was and is the “Hope and Change” candidate (“A New Day!” Whoopee!).
Also, thanks for editing my comment from April 8:
“I have been as critical of Scrima as you (maybe more), but ultimately, I do want him to succeed. I thought Nelson was going to be a colossal failure as Mayor and he proved me wrong. However, given the half-truths, double-speak, and general obfuscation we saw from Scrima, I am not optimistic. I hope that I am proven wrong.”
Ultimately, we need the mayor of this city to be successful. What we have seen so far does not give me much hope. I still hope that I am proven wrong. Don’t expect me to stop being a critic. If he starts doing well, I may not jump for joy and gush praise, but I will grudgingly admit it.
The fact is, you were portraying yourself (dishonestly) as someone who was a supporter of the mayor and someone who voted for Scrima when you ask the question, “Can I take back my vote?” You are trying to make people believe that you have changed your mind based on the mayor’s actions since becoming elected, when in fact you never supported him and never voted for him. I also question whether you really do want him to succeed because whether you post is on a blog or not, the dishonesty displayed in your comments show signs of someone who simply lacks character.
Steve, did it ever occur to you that there may be more than one person commenting named Dean? The other Dean runs the Thoughtful Conservative blog. I am a different Dean. I did not vote for Scrima.
I’m not on it, but I imagine a majority of Waukesha’s citizenry will be on The Boy Blunder’s list before long.
“Boy Blunder.” Ha! That’s a keeper.
Hi, Steve, there are two Dean’s commenting here. The best way to tell the difference (until the other Dean gets a blog or something) is that when I comment there will be a link to my blog where I did proclaim that I voted for Scrima.

Plus there is that funny little troll as my avatar….
[…] There is no room for a mayor who believes that is OK to secretly record meetings or come up with “enemies lists” or anything which could be remotely construed as such. He need to quit being an impediment and […]
