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 […]

The good folks at Wisconsin Reporter caught the rantings of a rabid Graeme Zielinski about the Dontre Hamilton case. This one caught my eye: I can’t speak for the single fat white Republicans in Waukesha, but as a married fat white Republican in Waukesha I’m guessing that I’ve done more and cared more for African […]

Over at Blogging Blue, former Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Graeme Zielinski attempted to defend his former boss, Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate, from the anger of the faithful.

I also pointed out that the tactic was similar to the former spokesman […]

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairman Mike Tate issued a press release today welcoming Jefferson County District Attorney Susan Happ to the race for state Attorney General. “Wisconsin voters need an experienced, independent defender of justice who will put our state’s public safety first.” He forgot to add, “Unless the threat to public safety is a […]

Waukesha Freeman 1/16/2014 Page A5 Opinion Democrats have bad history on drunk driving Dems need to get serious before attacking Schimel It was hard to come back from vacation in Hawaii. I missed the coldest weather of the year to enjoy free mai tais and other funny tropical drinks. Why not? I wasn’t driving. While […]

In case you have not been following the exchange on Twitter between Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairman Mike Tate and myself, the good folks at RightWisconsin asked me to write about it. The exchange, less-than-civil on Tate’s part, was about former party communications director Graeme Zielinski and if he was intoxicated while speaking, or “tweeting,” […]

You have to appreciate the irony. After all of his false accusations of criminal activity, former Democratic Party spokesman Graeme Zielinski is facing a charge for third time driving while intoxicated. Caught drinking like a Cubs fan.   Say it ain’t so, Grammy. Did Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate know about Zielinski’s two prior drunk […]
