Our friends at RightWisconsin asked Dave Blaska, Jerry Bader and me to join their editor Collin Roth in talking about who and what are on the ballot today. I actually put on my prognosticator pundit hat on (always dangerous) and predicted the outcomes of a number of elections in Waukesha. One race I touched on […]

Writing over at RightWisconsin, Jerry Bader explains that he supports the sale of raw milk but he does not support the current bill. The reason, he explains, is that the bill would look like Wisconsin regulations will make raw milk safe when they really won’t. Critics argue that such regulation would make it impractical for […]

WTAQ has suspended radio personality Jerry Bader for two weeks, starting Monday, for a podcast he did saying an extra-marital affair forced Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton from the race for governor. Bader retracted the statement the next day when Lawton denied the story. Lawton, apparently dissatisfied with Bader’s punishment, lashed out at the entire city […]

But without solid standards and the ability to accurately measure student performance we will never […]

Jeff Dickert is this week’s poster boy for a desperate education establishment afraid that their grip on the state department for public instruction may be slipping away. As WISN’s Mark Belling reported first on Friday, Dickert sent out an e-mail invitation to a fundraiser for WEAC-endorsed Tony Evers in violation of the law. Badger Blogger […]
