Happy Hump Day. Since it is Wednesday, I am obligated to direct you to the Badger Herald's Hump Day column. If the title, "Porn hardcore enough for Republicans and 11-year-olds" doesn't catch your attention, I don't know what will. Maybe this waffle from Indie Coffee.
And if you have any notion of campus politics, you won't avoid yet another discussion of the "origins of Coasties" at UW. Academic panel included.

Feingold is also mounting a campaign to get people to vote early.
Freakfest. Always Freakfest concerns.

Herald ed board: "What the Falk?"
John Nichols: It's absurd to run a Mississippi-style Republican in Wisconsin's 2nd Congressional District. But there could be a GOP for the 2nd Chad Lee take notes.
