Tomorrow night’s sold out Insight 2016 event, hosted by WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes, at the County Springs Hotel will be the launching point of Senator Ted Cruz’s effort to win Wisconsin. From the RightWisconsin update: Charlie Sykes announced Tuesday morning that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz will attend Insight 2016, Wednesday March 23, at the Country Springs […]

I’m here at the Walker Victory Party at the Country Springs Hotel in Waukesha where I’ve managed to find the last open chair in the room.  Chris Kliesmet from CRG is here and he’s predicting double-digit wins for both Walker and Johnson.  Not sure how serious he was. John Hiller, Walker’s campaign treasurer, seemed in […]

Just thought I would pass along the Waukesha GOP’s “Grazing with the elephants” is Monday, October 4th, at their favorite watering hole, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.  The cost for non-members is $15, and I assume that does not include admission to the water park.  Cash bar at the casbah.

You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell! – Planet of the Apes, 1968 I eschewed the above quote for something a little more family-friendly for my column this week in the Waukesha Freeman (even under The Obama you can afford the fifty cents).

Something about elephants and water, my children, etc. So I won’t be at the BID meeting tonight as planned, unfortunately. My spies will just have to fill me in later. Meanwhile, Darryl Enriquez catches up to Alderman […]

Mark Block was up at the state Republican Convention in Stevens Point and noticed something curious: However as you looked around the convention hall you had to wonder why the Waukesha County delegation seats were almost empty. Look, if you don’t hold the event at the Country Springs Hotel, you need to provide them with […]

I hope somebody takes good notes, or gets it on video. This Thursday there will be a panel discussion on the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resource Compact at 7:30 AM at (where else?) the Country Springs Hotel. If you want Republicans to attend, it has to be at the Country Springs Hotel. The […]
