Judging from the most recent interview by Mike Gousha on his Sunday morning yack fest, it’s like Russ Feingold never served in the Senate. Gousha asked Feingold about Senate Republicans like Ron Johnson refusing to consider President Barack Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court, but as I explain at RightWisconsin Gousha never asked a follow-up […]

As Huey Lewis sang, sometimes bad is bad, and the GAB is really bad. While attention is often focused on Executive Director Kevin Kennedy, GAB Chairman Judge Gerald Nichol did his best in an interview to remind the audience he and the other board members are a major part of the problem, too.

Sheila Cochran of the Milwaukee Area Labor Council showed she lacked any sense of perspective when, in response to a question about Right to Work from Mike Gousha, she referred to Martin Niemöller’s “First they came…” speech.

There is, of course, nothing wrong with reminding the audience that your opponent has a record, too, as a politician. As I wrote previously about Mark Neumann’s attacks on Walker, I’m a believer in rough-and-tumble primary election campaigns. I […]

Dick Leinenkugel told Mike Gousha he was surprised at the tone of the criticisms over his time as Commerce Secretary for Governor Jim Doyle. Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dick Leinenkugel, who served as commerce secretary under Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle, says he was a little surprised at the nature of the attacks he’s received from […]
