Unsolicited advice for Governor Doyle
By Bill Kraus
Now that the Republicans in the Legislature have assured your re-election by making you the last line of defense against guns, genetic stupidity, and all around bone-headedness, you can add yet another credential that will enhance your somewhat tarnished image with disappointed Dems, irascible Independents, and even recoiling Republican moderates.
You can become the champion of clean government and the tamer of the corrupting money monster.
You can do this without damaging your own re-election prospects, because you aren't going to need all that money you have been working so hard to raise.
You can go as far as you want to down the yellow brick road to cleaning up Wisconsin politics and government.
You can take the two-lane road proposed by Senators Ellis and Risser or you can propose the super highway that they are building in Connecticut, otherwise known as full public funding of all political campaigns.
You get that rare political opportunity of doing good while doing well.
And you don't even have to thank the Republicans who made this possible.
