Waukesha Freeman March 10, 2016 Page A6 Opinion Time, context matter Bradley should be forgiven for college comments It’s impossible not to be frustrated with the revelations that state Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley wrote some awful anti-homosexual remarks in the student newspaper at Marquette 24 years ago. Even in 1992, 24 years ago when […]

Political pundits often make political predictions and are never held accountable for them. My predictions are often no better than anyone else’s predictions and they’re often made tongue-in-cheek.

Waukesha Freeman 9/24/2015 Page A6 Opinion What caused Walker to fail? GOP needs serious candidate to lead party Gov. Scott Walker dropped out of the presidential race on Monday.

Over at the MacIver Institute, I have an op-ed on state Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson’s lawsuit to keep “chief” in her title. Yes, I know it’s racist of her, but she really wants to be called “chief.” Anyway, there’s a pattern here, and like cargo Capri pants, it’s not very flattering to liberals. […]

As I was polishing the family heirloom martini shaker, a genie appeared. “Master of the Martini, listen to me. You have freed me from the curse that trapped me in here lo these many millennia.” To which I replied, “I didn’t think they had stainless steel thousands of years ago.” “SILENCE!

Each year I consult the magic martini shaker to make a list of predictions and then, because I’m a masochist, I revisit them at the end of the year to see how well I did. This year I did better than most. Any better, and TLC channel will offer me a reality television show as […]
