I know a number of people on both sides are not going to quite believe Russ Feingold when he says he is also ruling out running for governor next year if a recall of Governor Scott Walker is on the ballot. I admit I was skeptical at first, too. But in all of the criticism […]

I hope we win these recalls, because it seems to me we just lost the presidency in 2012. – Former Democratic Consultant Bill Christofferson (Why pick on Bill? Because picking on Ed Garvey is too easy.) Print this entry

The United States Postal Service is thinking of closing a few offices (peacefully) to save money, and the local liberals are unhappy about the ones targeted for closure here: What do black people need a post office for anyway? (Memo to Bill Christofferson: They’re “African Americans” now. Oh, and “Uppity” is no longer PC.) Actually, […]

Congressman Tammy Baldwin is considering running for US Senate. Former Democratic consultant Bill Christofferson is skeptical of her chances: It won’t take any sleazy issue ads to tell people she’s a lesbian. It will be mentioned in the media virtually every time someone writes about her candidacy. The question is, does that matter? Is Wisconsin, […]

Another St. Norbert poll is out.

Next time he might want to remind his audience that his candidate was the loser in that race he mentions. In fact, his candidate lost every county in […]

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. The Government Accountability Board backed down on their plan to […]

Dick Leinenkugel goes out the revolving door at the state’s commerce department and is likely a Republican candidate for US Senate against Russ Feingold. Former Democratic consultant Bill Christofferson points out the family connection for Leinenkugel to the Tommy Thompson camp and says if Leinenkugel is in, Thompson is out. Dick Leinenkugel just resigned as […]

Former Democratic political strategist Bill Christofferson gives a brief history lesson on the career path of Judge Linda Van De Water, who is currently challenging Judge Paul Reilly for the Court of Appeals: Linda Van De Water leads a charmed life. Despite totally blowing a fatal beating case as a prosecutor, and having an alcohol-fueled […]
