Walker says that Pridemore's loss and Evers' win does not mean that Wisconsinites oppose vouchers for private schools. But as a backup plan, some GOP legislators are writing a bill giving parents who choose to send their kids to private schools a hefty tax break. That means even less money available for public education.

So, Pridemore's loss does not mean we oppose vouchers but Lanford's win means he shouldn't appoint any more judges.

Although Pridemore lost the election to be the state superintendent of schools, he is still deeply involved in educational issues.

Uh, don't assume that Walker or any of these Republican legislators are coming up with this stuff on their own. The tax break legislation has been floated in other states. It's straight from ALEC.

But Republicans turn away from that one. In South Dakota a Republican legislator who had home schooled her children led the opposition to the bill.

My guess is it's going nowhere.
