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 […]

Blogger brother Dave Blaska is organizing his own sing-along on Monday from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM in the Capitol rotunda, and he has a permit. Sing patriotic songs like America the Beautiful and fun songs like Gilligan’s Island and Flintstones. Show Wisconsin what respect for free speech looks — and sounds — like. Because […]

National Review Online columnist Jim Geraghty describes the scene outside the Republican National Convention in his “Morning Jolt” email: Security: It is a depressing statement on our age how the perimeter of a national convention site has to look like a war zone: chain-link fence after chain-link fence, concrete barrier after concrete barrier, armed guard […]

How do I know? Dave Blaska in Isthmus wrote, “Tommy Thompson is IN. […]

I already discussed just how much the Isthmus really sunk to a new low ethically in publishing rumors about Senator Herb Kohl’s supposed homosexuality despite his prior denials that he is gay. But for a moment consider if it had been a conservative that had engaged in the rumor-spreading online about Kohl and used the […]

Dave Blaska, the squire of stately Blaska Manor, was recently named by the Isthmus as one of Madison’s favorite “Vociferous Speakers.” Blaska does not state what the cash reward is for winning such a prize, but I’m hoping the check didn’t bounce. vo·cif·er·ous adj \vō-ˈsi-f(ə-)rəs\ Definition of VOCIFEROUS : marked by or given to vehement […]
