Blaska's Blog has filed a formal complaint with the Federal Communications Commission against WTDY radio. My intent is to knock the Vile Radio Talker off the air.
It is Complaint 11-WB14678720.
I do not like Big Government. But the Vile Radio Talker does. Let him go up against the lawyers at FCC. Live by the sword ...
This is what the Vile Radio Talker said on Monday morning over the airwaves:
"She performed fellatio on all the talk show hosts in Milwaukee" and she "pulled a train."
Here is a partial transcript:
How amateurish is it to have Rebecca Kleefisch, who, I don't know, she has some like little panty business in her basement or something, I don't know. She's hardly a, she's hardly an entrepreneur. You know what? You know how amateurish that is? Cold-calling?
(Using high-pitched voice, speaking as Kleefisch)
Would you like to move to Wisconsin? Would you like to move CouponCabin to Wisconsin? I'm Rebecca Kleefisch. I performed fellatio on all the talk show hosts in Milwaukee. And they endorsed me and that's how I became lieutenant governor. And then I got colon cancer and I ran around the state to help people. Even though I have government health care, screw everyone else.
I am indebted for this act of journalism to Freedom Eden:
[The] morning host on Madison's WTDY isn't doing anything to advance the argument that vitriol is a product of the Right and liberals engage in more civil discourse than conservatives.
SylvesterVile was ruthless in his attack on Wisconsin's Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. He was jaw-droppingly cruel and offensive and insensitive.
What a disgrace!
... He says he's apologizing for his comments, but he really doesn't. He acknowledges that maybe he was a little too crude and graphic in his sexual references about Kleefisch but he expresses pride in his "metaphor."
... So how do these Leftists define "civility"? Are hateful remarks OK as long as one insists that tongue is firmly planted in cheek?
Give me a break.
[Vile's] timing is priceless. Just when the Leftists have been pounding conservatives for their alleged lack of civility, he comes out with this.
Rebecca was asking for it!
That is what the Isthmus Forons are saying:

Sly'sVile's comments: Kleefisch started it when she ran the TV ad, promoting her cancer and stating that if the big, black President had his way, she'd have died. She used her cancer in an attempt to get votes. Fact.
She's reaping what she sowed.
Thanks for the reminder HeyZeus. I had forgotten about that part.
I get it! Another woman who was "asking for it." Yes, any woman who disagrees with a liberal man is nothing but a whore! What hypocrites!
One more thing: how typical of you to play the race card and how dishonest to suggest that Rebecca Kleefisch said anything about race. Or that she was on "government health insurance." In fact, it is private insurance, provided by her employer, who happens to be the State of Wisconsin.
The Vile Talker, of course, is infamous for calling Condoleeza Rice an "Aunt Jemima" for daring to leave the liberal reservation as a black woman to become the first female secretary of state under President George W. Bush.
Marla Stephens, candidate for the the Wisconsin Supreme Court, need not worry. The Vile Radio Talker approves her candidacy. He hosted her fundraiser last night at La Mestiza and she appeared as a guest on his show. Paul Soglin is frequent guest. John Nichols shared his microphone on January 14 "in defense of gun control." Other recent guests: Joe Wineke, AFT union boss Bryan Kennedy, and State Rep. Sandy Pasch, D-Whitefish Bay.
The Blog will continue to track liberals who grace the Vile Talker with their presence on his radio show.
Prediction: a frequent commentator will rise to the Vile Talker's defense by saying we should just look the other way. He will make novel arguments for moral equivalence by citing Arbitron ratings. He will say that Vicki once called someone an idiot. He will says the Vile Talker does not represent Democrats.

Must not stress the teachers union
Chris Rickert of the Wisconsin State Journal had a pretty fair insight into why parents love Glendale principal Mickey Buhl and the teachers union don't:
Here's the new, results-oriented principal bending a school to his will; the staff who conspire against him ...
... about the worst offense principal Mickey Buhl can be accused of is insensitivity. His detractors appear to have experienced some suffering, but it's not clear Buhl deserves the blame for it.
Meanwhile, test scores at the school, which has the highest proportion of poor students in the district, are up.
... It's easy to blame the teachers union for Glendale's drama, since teacher's unions can sometimes interfere with the legitimate management needs and provide a safe space for employee insubordination.
But Chris Rickert doesn't want to blame the teachers union ... at least, not directly. This is Madison! This is the speak softly and carry a big twig Wisconsin State Journal.
Nonetheless, he does make a good ancillary point, which would be anyone else's main point: if teachers at Glendale are not under stress, they damn well should be.
If the Green Bay Packers are not under stress to play a perfect game against the Chicago Bears Sunday then Mike McCarthy is not the coach we know he is. If the Milwaukee Brewers are not under stress to get into the post-season this fall, then fire the manager and the g.m.
Rickert says "My theory is that Buhl created some good stress and the school improved, but a minority of staffers were bad-stressed to see the apple cart upset - and showed it."
Which comes back, does it not, to the teachers union? Which comes back, does it not, to the powerful tools the union can bring to bear -- the un-ending grievances, the coordinated, but subtle job actions, the constant grinding down by a process-first, results-last system?
Now here is the larger point: it's all about the teachers, isn't it? They must be made to feel comfortable. Keep up the country club atmosphere in the clubhouse. Please, no stress. We're union.
In any private sector company in Madison, a good CEO would fire the loudest bitcher and then ask "who wants to be next?"
I should have run for school board.
