That was never in doubt. The only way Kloppenburg could have won during the recount […]

“No fist is big enough to hide the sky.” – African proverb The recount is over and Justice David Prosser won re-election again. It’s time for JoAnne Kloppenburg to concede the election. Who will be the adult on the Democratic side of the aisle to tell her to pack it in? Or was this about […]

Professor William Jacobson discovers the meaning of Kloppenburg and adds, In other news, did you hear the one about the wide open ballot bags in the city of Brookfield that are so troubling even though the recount vote matched election night and canvass numbers almost precisely? And in Milwaukee County too. I get it now. […]
