State Representative Don Pridemore and his staff are in a little hot water because of a press release they issued attacking Tony Evers, candidate for state superintendent of public instruction. The press release was sent out using a state e-mail address and on the state assembly office letterhead, and it listed the representative’s toll-free state […]

I think I got called a phony tonight on the radio. On today’s program, WISN’s Mark Belling once again claimed that State Supreme Court candidate Judge Randy Koschnick is not a candidate who can criticize judicial activism because of his past as a defense attorney, specifically as Ted Oswald’s attorney. More, Belling takes umbrage at […]

Paul and Jessica Bucher are suing a West Bend hotel because their daughter burned her hands by putting them on the glass shielding a gas fireplace. Their daughter was burned sufficiently that she had to receive emergency treatment and continued medical treatment because of the burns. I’m surprised this is receiving press coverage at all. […]

With the introduction of the Friday afternoon cocktail, pinch-hitting for the Jo Egelhoff on Thursdays, and column writing on Tuesdays, we’re moving the Idiot Politician of the Week to Saturdays. Lucky for us, the move snagged us a last-minute entry this week. On any given week, the idiot politicians are thicker than mosquitoes in July. […]

Jessica McBride has the last word on State Rep. Don Pridemore’s understanding of the First Amendment. In response to the robocalls, Pridemore whipped out a press release that, in disclosure, mentioned my husband. Flailing at an imaginary electoral strawman, Pridemore raised speculation that my husband is going to run against him and speculated that it […]

Controversies come, controversies go. And I’m rather skeptical about most of what I read. Here was this morning’s controversy: April 17, 2008 – Yale senior, Aliza Shvarts ,artificially inseminated herself several times in order to have multiple abortions for her “art” project. The April 17th edition of Yale Daily News reports that senior Aliza Shvarts’ […]

Put any prediction of Paul Bucher taking on State Representative Don Pridemore in the primary at the very low end of probabilities. However, the thought of Paul Bucher sitting in the Republican Assembly Caucus does strike me as pretty funny. After the first meeting he’d probably demand mandatory breathalyzer checks for his colleagues. And considering […]

Owen Robinson’s appearance on Sunday Insight with Charlie Sykes must have been a last-minute invitation. He was clearly not prepared when he gave his “loser of the week.” To name Paul Bucher because Bucher has been open supporter of William Gleisner’s was gratuitous and stupid and clearly not thought out. I’m trying to give Robinson […]

Paul Bucher (among others) is endorsing Bill Gleisner and Rick Esenberg (among others) is endorsing Judge Neubauer. I think I need some liberals to help me with this. Who are Mike Maistelman and Mike Plaisted supporting? Print this entry
