“Then came the shade of Teiresias from Thebes, holding a golden staff. He knew who I was and started speaking: ‘Resourceful Odysseus, Laertes’ son and Zeus’ child, what now, you unlucky man? Why leave the sunlight, come to this joyless place, and see the dead? Move from the pit and pull away your sword, so […]

My wife and I had a reminder today that, now that my Waukesha Freeman column is gone, some of you don’t get to read as much Wiggy wisdom as you’d like. I’m going to try to keep this page updated more with my latest work. In the meantime, you can always find me at […]

Over at RightWisconsin, the contributors (including moi) were asked to give our preview of tonight’s Republican debate. Of course, we all said that this debate will rank up there with the Lincoln-Douglas debates and the Buckley-Reagan debate on the Panama Canal. Well, actually, we said quite the opposite, as you can imagine. It has the […]

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker joined in the complaining that somehow Texas Senator Ted Cruz should’ve endorsed Donald Trump because of the pledge everyone signed after Trump threatened to run as an independent. Aside from pointing out the obvious, that Trump himself said he wouldn’t honor the pledge and he didn’t expect it from the senator, […]

Television commentators are still in a tizzy that Republican convention goers are chanting, “lock her up!” Over at RightWisconsin, I explained why it’s a little different to say lock up Hillary compared to saying that about other political opponents: But what the commentators are missing is that this is more than just a set of […]

WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes had me as a guest on his show to discuss “the week in review.” Believe it or not, it wasn’t me with the classic movie reference. If you’re wondering what we discuss off the air, failed vice presidential candidate trivia, bathroom plumbing and martini glass chillers. Always a fun time. I hope […]

Over at RightWisconsin, I explain that Indiana Governor Mike Pence may not be Donald Trump’s best choice for a running mate: While picking Pence may seem “safe” for Trump, it’s certainly an odd position for the Indiana governor. After,_official_portrait,_112th_Congress.jpglosing a congressional election in 1991, Pence wrote an essay, “Confessions of a Negative Campaigner,” for […]

I don’t know if Senator Ron Johnson understands it or not but his path to re-election is a lot easier if Donald Trump loses the Republican nomination. Over At RightWisconsin, I explain why the mere mention of Trump becomes an anchor on the Johnson campaign. Johnson was interviewed on Fox News and he said that […]

Every flyover state looks the same when you’re flying on Trump airlines, but after Tuesday it’s unlikely Donald Trump will look at Wisconsin the same way again. Over at RightWisconsin, I explain how the endorsement by Governor Scott Walker of Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Trump’s reaction to it, shows just how much the New […]

Wisconsin does not allocate Republican delegates proportionally. As I explain over at RightWisconsin, every vote cast for Ohio Governor John Kasich is a lost opportunity to vote against Donald Trump. …if Kasich draws enough former Rubio voters, he could block Cruz’s campaign from winning a plurality statewide. That would award the eighteen statewide delegates to […]
