Scot Ross says something funny without recalling his failed potty training
Scot Ross of (*) One Wisconsin Now manages to be funny without engaging in coprophilia. He reports on one liberal expectation from the state GOP convention, “By the by, libs say the over/under on times Rebecca Kleefisch mentions Reagan in her speech is 12.”
That’s probably about right, and too bad none of the candidates on his side could mention President Ronald Reagan without succumbing to a case of the vapors.
Meanwhile, Brian Fraley of the MacIver Institute makes a good point,
Thanks in large part to the liberals’ overreach and overspending in both Washington and Madison, conservatism is in the ascendancy. Obama’s jobless recovery is not a recovery. Oh and, once the temporary army of Census workers are off the employment rolls, the numbers will plummet even more. Sure the GOP has some hotly contested primaries that will get candidates battle-ready for the general election. That’s because the Republican Party doesn’t believe in gathering in some secret hideaway with the big-money labor interests and ‘selecting’ a candidate in private (attention Julie Lassa, does it hurt when Dave Obey, the NEA and the SEIU pull your strings all the way from the East Coast?) To win in the fall, Republicans need to offer more than just a warm body in opposition to the left, however. They will need concrete, conservative public policy solutions that curb spending and reduce the size and scope of government. From the U.S. Senate to governor to the state Legislature: Opportunity is knocking, Republicans. How will you answer?
I’ll be at the convention for much of the day tomorrow to see for myself how Republicans will answer.
