Slob hugs Grothman
Perhaps the man was not familiar with the hugee--whatever...He gave a bear hug to Assembly Representative Glenn Grothman near M&I bank, but, said Grothman, "It was not a malicious bear hug--I schmoozed him. Of course it was inappropriate." Brave Glenn. So close to a slob but able to schmooze the poor devil.
Imagine hugging a slob! Next time go with security, Glenn.
Prosser's column: The Cap Times's Wednesday print version is full of good stories this week. Usually is, but this was possibly the best ever. The paper gave JoAnne Kloppenburg and David Prosser space to write whatever they wanted to say about the Supreme Court race that will end on April 5...to persuade us to vote for one or the other.
Kloppenburg filled hers by providing her very impressive background. Prosser used his space to attack her and to assure us he would be independent despite his partisanship. (His campaign said Prosser will protect the conservative majority on the Court and, worse, he will "complement" Governor Walker.)
Catch this line: "My largely unknown opponent hides behind her Mary Poppins persona." (What in the world does that mean?)
Then he says because "Kloppenburgh has been rejected for judicial appointments...is telling evidence that she is not in the mainstream." What is he talking about? There is no "evidence" that she ever asked for an appointment nor any that she was rejected. One thing for certain: he can only dream he had her resume!
"Make it up if you have to" seems to be the Prosser approach. Known as a volatile legislator, once rushing toward the Speaker with his fist raised, shouting, and other times engaging in verbal assaults, but he may have reformed. "Amazing Grace!" Prosser, who has divided the Court with his occasional disrespect toward litigants and his fellow Justices, especially the highly respected Chief Justice, ends with these words. "My steady, fair performance on the court merits re-election." Yah, sure, David. His campaign has made it clear: "This race is about a 4-3 common sense conservative majority vs, a 3-4 liberal majority and nothing more." Don't believe Prosser? Ask WMC. They will open the check book for Prosser to preserve their control of the Court.
The Cap Times endorsed Kloppenburg. If she arrives by umbrella, let us know.
April 5 is the date!

"Kown as a volatile legislator, once rushing toward the Speaker with his fist raised, shouting, and other times engaging in verbal assaults, but he may have reformed"
So Ed this was a bad thing when Prosser did it but its the highest form of democracy when the democrates do it over Walker's budget bill? Even going as far as telling a woman your f-ing dead! Yep you guys are definately more classy.

Walker is directed, directly, by God.

How do we get the message to all 72 Wisconsin counties? Dane county is unique. The other 71 are filled with many who think Walker, the Fitgerald boys and Prosser are doing what is right.
We need to fill libraries, townhalls, church basements with informed lecturers who can help educate Wisconsin voters to the facts so everyone can make informed decisions on election day.
How do we do this?

Ah, yes, Walker is fulfilling the will of his god. How lovely he can impose that will on all of us. We'd be so much better if only he could manage us more efficiently by eliminating dissent. Soon the mud around the capitol will be nicely groomed with rose bushes all around, sunshine and a rainbow above. Catch Walker, that impish leprechaun that he is, and maybe we good people of Wisconsin will finally find our pot of gold. Alas, it will be Koch gold made to look like clean government, a healthy environment, clean water, great wages, etc. I can hardly wait to be so happy and fulfilled.

This woman is a chimera. Where has she been for the last 20 years? What articles has she written, letters to the editor? She's a nobody in the legal world. The Obama of Wisconsin. People project onto her what they want, even though she offers nothing of substance.
She's been laying in the weeds her whole legal career. We can do better than this.
