Fred Clark (D-CAND, WI-SEN): would-be abuser.
I say ‘would-be’ because Rep. Clark (who is running against incumbent Wisconsin Senator Luther Olsen in the upcoming recall election) doesn’t have the nerve to say things like the below to a constituent’s face: FC: “Ok. I feel like calling her back and smacking her around.” Nope! Clark’s much more comfortable with waiting until he thinks that she’s off the phone, and only then playing tough-guy. | Read More »
Wisconsin Republicans spoil Democrats’ recall fun.
There is an interesting thing about the Wisconsin recall process. Essentially, if you read the document regulating it you will discover that the designation of a particular date for a recall election assumes that there was no primary; if there is a primary, it occurs on that date, with the general election taking place a month afterward. Also of note… political parties do not have | Read More »
Voter ID and Voter Contempt.
It is hard to imagine a more demeaning statement about black America than labeling demands that all voters show a photo ID anti-black. – Dennis Prager (HT: National Review) Wow! Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations. Democrats across America have risen en masse to fight Voter ID laws. Their talking points all read in a depressingly similar fashion. The quote-zombies vary in location, | Read More »
Joanne Kloppenburg concedes to David Prosser in WI Supreme Court race.
…that is to say, Wisconsin Assistant Attorney General Joanne Kloppenburg has conceded the election results for her Supreme Court bid against incumbent David Prosser. My congratulations to Justice Prosser; you had an unexpectedly difficult race, and you were able to succeed nonetheless. Well done, sir. Also, a word to the Greater Wisconsin Committee? You know, the group that created that scurrilous ad that was so | Read More »
Joe Conason lies about PPP WI recall poll.
This is very entertaining, because it takes real skill to muck up reporting this PPP poll about Scott Walker’s chances in a hypothetical recall election; fortunately, Joe Conason is up to the challenge. Let’s look at what Conason wrote (bolding mine): Asked whether they would support or oppose [Scott Walker's] removal from office in a recall election, 50 percent said yes and only 47 percent | Read More »
Where are the adult Wisconsin Democrats?
Because somebody in the Wisconsin Democratic party needs to be the adult in the David Prosser/JoAnne Kloppenburg state Supreme Court recount, here. This nonsense has gone on long enough: three weeks and a quarter-million taxpayer dollars later, it has – not ‘become’ obvious that Prosser has won. It’s been obvious since they certified the results. What’s more properly ‘become’ obvious is that the Kloppenburg camp | Read More »
Election reform bill passes WI state house.
Wisconsin’s voter ID bill passed, 60-35; it now goes to the Senate, to be worked on next week. The bill will require that voters show picture ID before voting: what really has Democrats in a tizzy about this is that to be valid a student ID will need “current address, birth date, signature and expiration date.” This effectively removes all Wisconsin student IDs from consideration… | Read More »
Tech at Night: FCC Lies, Copyright, Internet Tax, Amazon
Curse Firefox. I’m getting to this much later tonight than I would have, thanks to a stinking Firefox 3.6 rendering bug, plus Firefox’s refusal to make it easy to work around Firefox rendering bugs. Microsoft Internet Explorer makes that easy with conditional comments. Firefox has no such feature, pretending it’s always right. Which is fine, except when Firefox 4 and Firefox 3.6 render the same | Read More »

This is what WI Democrats look like.
I apologize in advance for the foul language that this Democratic shill for Big Labor – or Big Labor lackey for Democrats, if that makes any difference at this point – in the video below used while verbally attacking a fourteen year old girl (Tricia Willoughby); but it’s important that people see what the Republican party, the Tea Party movement, and conservatives in general are | Read More »
Petitions stolen from Recall Dave Hansen (D) office?
Allegedly, the burglars were after the petitions gathered to recall Dave Hansen, who was one of the Wisconsin Democratic senators who fled the state rather than participate in the democratic process. Which – if this was in fact done by Democratic party operatives or sympathizers – would merely demonstrate that Hansen is in fact fairly representative of his party, at that. The good news is | Read More »
It is over. David Prosser won his Supreme Court race.
Wisconsin’s Government Accountability Board has received the full number of certified results by county in last week’s state Supreme Court race between David Prosser and Joanne Kloppenburg. With all counties in, Prosser leads by 7,316 votes: this margin is enough to permit a free recount by the state on the defeated Kloppenburg’s behalf, but 7,316 votes is a difference that is not only far beyond | Read More »
No, the Milwaukee DA press conference has nothing to do with Prosser.
This is a preemptive post: the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board and the DA’s office for Milwaukee County is will be having a joint press conference Monday afternoon at 2 PM local time about a “significant investigation.” Given that the DA for Milwaukee County is a Democrat – and given that the election results for Milwaukee County have not yet been certified – there has already | Read More »
I think David Prosser has won his WI Supreme Court race.
At least, for him to lose it at this point will be actually be a bit of a surprise. The numbers don’t seem to be there for his opponent. First, let’s look at the total votes cast in Milwaukee and Outagamie counties (the two remaining to be canvassed), as of right now. Prosser’s current vote margin: 7,310. Milwaukee % Outagamie % Combined % Prosser 98,933 | Read More »
Recount Gives Prosser a Lead in Wisconsin…For Now (With Updates)
From the diaries by Erick UPDATE 7: Barring Democratic shenanigans (and they are still possible) I think it’s safe to say Prosser has won. This means that, as others have said, conservatives have been able to match a supposedly hyper-motivated Left blow-for-blow in a typically blue-leaning state with a strong history of progressivism and support for labor. It’s almost certain that there will be a | Read More »
The Morning After Wisconsin.
Well. It’s barely Prosser, and we’re off to the recount. You’re going to see the phrase ‘margin of fraud’ a lot this morning; while this is a valid concern, the bright side to that is that with a Republican governor AND Republican legislature – neither of which is particularly inclined to be trusting – Wisconsin Democrats will find it harder to play the same games | Read More »
