Wisconsin Democrats are claiming that the NFL players are on their side in the Right to Work debate. I would just caution the Democrats that, just because the union gave them Ed Garvey, the players association is not a winning ally. Over at the MacIver Institute I explain why: With the support of the NFLPA […]

My friends, the Democrats in Wisconsin need help. No, really. Their current party chairman, Mike Tate, has announced he will not be seeking re-election at the June convention. He has become a lame duck, and the party is bereft of leadership. Okay, Tate wasn’t exactly an inspiring leader before, either. But still, there is a […]

Former Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Graeme Zielinski has guest-posted a blog post at Blogging Blue attacking Ed Garvey of Fighting Bob. Several times over the course of my job Garvey behaved with total dishonesty, both to me and with the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, with whom he seems to be nursing some kind of […]

Each year I make a list of predictions, and each year we examine where I went wrong. Unfortunately the end of the Mayan calendar did not mean the end of the world, so we have 50 predictions to sort through. It might be easier to don the sackcloth and walk barefoot through Canterbury while being […]

Let’s face it, Wisconsin Republicans owned their national convention. Governor Scott Walker, Congressman Sean Duffy, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, Danny Gokey, Cardinal Dolan (former Archbishop of Milwaukee), front row seats for our delegates, and of course, the next Vice President of the United States, Convgressman Paul Ryan from Janesville, WI. Then we look at the […]

I mentioned before about Democratic spokesman Graeme Zielinski wanting to use Eric Hovde’s personal wealth as an issue. Now it’s being echoed in the blogosphere. Seriously, Democrats, are you going to really try to use this as an issue in the race to succeed Senator Herb Kohl, one of the richest men in the Senate? […]

His column runs Thursdays in The Freeman.)  There are no limits to the silliness of mankind when it […]

Lefty crank Ed Garveyis making fun of the political return of former Governor Tommy Thompson. Pretty funny when you consider something that was left out of Garvey’s blog post: Tommy Thompson Scott McCallum Republican 1,047,716 59.66% Ed Garvey Barbara Lawton Democratic 679,553 38.70% I forgot Barbara Lawton ran with Garvey. I wonder what ever happened […]

Publication:Waukesha Freeman (Conley); Date:Aug 25, 2011; Section:Opinion; Page Number:8A Thompson and Neumann could leave room for third candidate   Shhh. If you listen closely, you can hear a voice from the future that sounds strangely like a voice from our past. It’s saying, “It’s a great day to be a senator from Wisconsin!” Yes, that […]
