Earlier this week the Washington Post reported Sen Rand Paul hired Chip Englander to run his presidential campaign. Over at RightWisconsin, I noted Englander’s history in Wisconsin of running Mark Neumann’s campaigns, including the Republican gubernatorial primary in 2010. Walker supporters remember that Neumann effort for it’s dishonest and vile attacks.  Which prompted me to ask, In the […]

Each year I make a list of predictions, and each year we examine where I went wrong. Unfortunately the end of the Mayan calendar did not mean the end of the world, so we have 50 predictions to sort through. It might be easier to don the sackcloth and walk barefoot through Canterbury while being […]

Erick Erickson of is complaining about “the establishment Republicans” again. This time it’s about the Republicans running for Senate. This year, the NRSC will have only itself to blame again, but this time really without any conservatives to pin the blame on. Tommy Thompson is flailing about in Wisconsin as the senile old grandfather […]

Tonight is the first debate between former Governor Tommy Thompson and Congressman Tammy Baldwin. The close race is not what Tommy! partisans should have expected, but it’s reality.

Some post-election thoughts: I wonder if Erick Erickson of Red State, Club for Growth, Senator Jim DeMint, Tea Party Express, all feel a little stupid for not listening to Wisconsin conservatives when they (well, we) said Neumann was not worthy of their support. I wonder if any of them who were so determined to stop […]

Okay, here we go. I should note that these polls are unscientific and are deliberately open to gaming by the relative campaigns. Please keep that in mind if using these polls to bet on Tuesday’s election. Remember, gambling on an election is wrong, and it’s hard to find a bookie locally to take the bet. […]

Publication: Waukesha Freeman (Conley); Date: Aug 9, 2012; Section: Opinion; Page: 6     Senate choice comes down to two strong candidates    If you weren’t tired of politics after the recall election, the Republican Senate primary has probably finished the job. It’s a race between three-and-a-half solid candidates, all of them conservatives, leaving the candidates […]

The Daily Caller explains the anger directed at former Congressman Mark Neumann, the natural result of the kind of campaign he ran in 2010 against Walker, and how it is affecting the current senate race. In the article, once again I give good quote the way a pundit should. Neumann has previously told The Daily […]
