Do you have the votes?
One way to view the most recent shenanigans in the Capitol: It looks as if Fitzgerald does not have the votes to pass the union-busting repair bill or else he would follow the rules and take a Mulligan.
Prosser looks like a tantrum is on the horizon. He can't get off the defensive and he gets nasty when he is challenged. The Chief is a total _____; she and Justice Ann Walsh Bradley are "ganging up" on him; they are, apparently, smarter than David Prosser so he is angry. His latest victim? JoAnne Kloppenburg linking her to the Chief Justice--"an activist and a liberal." Yikes! Sit before reading: "Kloppenburg has "extreme political and social views" but, reports MJS, "he did not specify what they were"! He went on, "She is an unbending ideologue." Proof Justice Prosser?
"I wouldn't say that if I hadn't heard that multiple times." I am not making this up! He assured us that based on hearsay, he knows his opponent is an ideologue. Whoa Nelly!

Nothing like a little excitement in the statehouse to keep the blood flowing, eh? Don't you just love it when Prosser implies he doesn't like the collective bargaining bill now? Is this to appease those voters who are undecided? Does this make him look like the little beaten puppy that he thinks he is?
As for the Fitzgeralds, the power has gone to their heads. I'd suggest rules that prohibit siblings from serving state elected office concurrently. For sure, prevent them from holding positions of power at the same time.
How about a constitutional amendment to bring back tar and feathering? Would the Koch's donate the oil for the tar?
There's something rotten in Madison these days, and it ain't Asian carp washing up on the shores of the governor's mansion.
If citizens can introduce bills, let's
