Jessica McBride makes a great point about last night’s Michigan primary: There were fewer independents voting in the GOP primary in Michigan than voted in New Hampshire.

Fr. Mich of Good Shepherd Parish of Menomonee Falls pens a letter to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in support of a lawsuit to overturn the ban on gay marriage – never mind that it is contrary to what he is supposed to teach as church doctrine on any given Sunday. Fr. Mich’s objection to the […]

Each year I make a set of predictions, some tongue in cheek, and every year I prove to only be slightly better than sportswriters predicting the outcomes of NFL games. A quick glance at this year’s scorecard will show I made better predictions than in the past. Comments in italics. Governor Doyle will get one […]

Van Hollen, who took office in January, has come under fire for failing to prosecute — or at least dirty up –the Democratic governor, Jim Doyle. The wingnuts are also unhappy about opinions […]

There was some discussion on Eric Von’s show on WMCS-AM during the “Backstory” segment about whether or not Michael McGee Jr should be removed from his committee assignments during the investigations, prosecution and sentencing to come. Former Crazy Shepherd columnist Dave Berkman argued that McGee Jr is innocent until proven guilty, and that he was […]

This is the e-mail sent to a WTMJ-AM listener: I appreciate your thoughts and comments. I would like to just clarify a couple of things. Jessica was not fired because of a certain ideology. She wasn’t even dismissed over the Eugene Kane piece she aired, although I believe it was an inappropriate attempt at comedy. […]
