Waukesha Freeman Thursday, 04/07/2016  Page A06 Opinion Tuesday night a victory for decency Voters reject personal attacks on Cruz, Bradley We’re going to be listening to the interpretations of Tuesday night’s election results in Wisconsin for a long time, or at least until the New York presidential primary. But for now it’s over for Wisconsinites. Then […]

I believe it was an editorial in National Review that said the trouble with sophomores is that they tend to be sophomoric. I’m inclined to give everyone a pass for what they did in college, and I think that most people are of the same mind, especially when it was so long ago it was […]

Waukesha Freeman 1/18/2016 Page A06 Opinion Bradley, Abele in trouble Rough night for incumbents A lot to cover here this morning so hang on. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Is state Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley in trouble? In 2011, Justice David Prosser actually got over 50 percent of the vote in the […]

The polls are closed on another Wigderson Library & Pub preference poll. The people have spoken and they want JoAnne Kloppenburg to run against Governor Scott Walker if there is a recall election. That’s what happens in an open primary state like Wisconsin. You get that cross-party meddling factor.  However, JoAnne Kloppenburg it is. Congratulations […]

Democrats are going to begin their recall efforts against Governor Scott Walker on November 15th. They’ll have until January 13th to collect the necessary 540,208 signatures.

I’m one of the few on the right to admit that I understand the furor expressed by the Anti-Prosser protest crowd in Madison yesterday.  Let’s be honest here: Supreme Court Justice […]

I forgot to make mention of this earlier in the week. The bill is in for the recount in Waukesha County. Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus’ 2011 budget was increased $129,200 by the county board Tuesday to account for the state Supreme Court election recount cost. “I think you may remember, we’ve been through a […]

Whew, it was close Supreme Court recount never should have happened Now that JoAnne Kloppenburg has finally accepted what the rest of the state already knew, let’s let it all out: “Whew, that was close!” Not the recount, of course. That was never in doubt. The only way Kloppenburg could have won during the recount […]

“No fist is big enough to hide the sky.” – African proverb The recount is over and Justice David Prosser won re-election again. It’s time for JoAnne Kloppenburg to concede the election. Who will be the adult on the Democratic side of the aisle to tell her to pack it in? Or was this about […]

I received a press release last night from the Walker Administration saying they are looking for qualified applicants to become judges.  Not a bad gig, I’m sure.  Hours are pretty decent.  Pay is not bad.  Benefits and job security are pretty good. I would imagine that a requirement to become a judge is that you […]
