My condolences to Jason Joyce and Kristian Knutsen (notice something similar about those names?), both of whom were rooting for France in the World Cup. Sometimes those French egos work, sometimes they don't. Here's a sandwich and coffee, courtesy of a review of Java Den by Ruth Young.
Rep. Bob Ziegelbauer (Manitowoc), who has always been somewhat of a DINO, finally leaves the Democratic Party and will run for re-election as an independent.
And yesterday, Russ Feingold was also in Manitowoc. The listening sessions always seen to yield hilarity. Had he known about the Ziegelbauer situation, you can bet state Dems would have wanted him to say something about the race.
Forgot to link to this yesterday. Kristin Czubkowski runs down what's going on at City Hall this week.
Enforcer of Wisconsin's raw milk rules resigns.
Great example of the appeals made to politicians to build prisons and keep them open.
Mayor Dave: Let's not miss the bigger picture of the BP oil spill.
Jim Rowen reminds us that Joe Barton's comments on BP are actually quite mainstream for the GOP.
The Cap Times also weighs in. After lauding Dave Westlake for taking on Ron Johnson (R-Big Bank Account), they refer to both candidates as (R-BP). Is this gimmick been around for long?
Small towns continue to fight state over siting law, which they say makes it hard for communities to challenge the establishment of big industrial farms nearby.
Snow plowing recommendations. No, not from Glenn Grothman.
Speaking of Grothman, Madison NORML activists were surprised the Wacky West Bender had nothing bad to say to them at their most recent rally.
The head of the Wall Street Journal Editorial Page is a Paul Ryan fan. A guy who supports low spending on everything except bailouts of Wall Street firms. Whouda thunk it?
Playground Politics: If Ron Johnson can piss of the Tea Party loons some more he just may have a chance of winning this November.
No more debt for the Overture? Wa happened?
