Post-Doyle Traumatic Stress Disorder


For a second I thought it was just me that got the shivers when I saw the headline, “Doyle says ‘I’m not going away.'”

“I think I can help both government and private groups be able to move toward making sure people have health care and making sure we have more sustainable energy and other issues like that,” Doyle said. “I’m going to work very hard. I’m not going away. I’m going to find really good and interesting things to do, I’m sure of that.”

Hearing Doyle talk like that is like watching Heaven’s Gate and being told there might be a sequel.

The feeling, it turns out, is bi-partisan. Progressive blog Blue Cheddar asks a really important question.

Another nonsensical piece on Doyle. He says he’s “not going away”and will stay in Madison. Are these articles intended to find the guy a job?

And how do we make the papers stop printing them?

Hey, I’ve been trying on the Tommy Thompson front since he stopped being governor. When you leftys figure this out, let me know.

In the meantime, consider this the launch phase of 2012 Senatorial speculation in Wisconsin. If Senator Herb Kohl retires, will he make a sound? More importantly, will there be a Russ Feingold vs. Jim Doyle Democratic Primary? I bet Doyle thinks he has “one last race” in him.
