Victory Coffee gets a brick through its window.

Madison coffee shop vandalism may be motivated by recall effort
I can't wait to hear the spin from the Neds.

You don't have to. It'll be identical to their spin on dozens of other topics on this board. Just copy and paste their remarks from those threads here.

I imagine if you look hard enough, you'll find a Republican press release from the last week or so warning that they have information that union thugs are preparing brick attacks on conservative businesses all across Wisconsin.

The GOP... Grand Old Projectionists.

Victory's a pretty self-impressed place. It could also just be due to the attitude projected by the place.

Reports on the ground say that the Window Fund tip jar is already packed.

TA, were you joking? Because I already made that joke. If, however, you're seriously postulating that Victory's attitude earned them a rock through the window...wow.

Yes, I was joking. I didn't realize that your joke was also referencing their somewhat pretentious vibe.

Well, it was mostly just a riff on what Ned might show up with. Yours was just much drier--glad to see it was meant in jest.

Is it the name? Here I thought they were going for an early 80's Stallone movie theme. No wonder my vintage nazi soccer jersey went unnoticed last week.

I think this article covers their eccentricities pretty well.

I'll take their "It's not for everyone" marketing riff any day over Tim Metcalfe's "Uniquely Different" redundancy.

Looks to me like the work of some PAC agitator to make the repubs look bad. I mean, come on, do you really believe a conservative has time for this sort of thing? On Atwood Ave? Give me a break. :roll:

Liberals will believe anything.

Oh that place. I had forgotten their name. I walked in there by chance – or possibly lured by the Recall poster in the window – and was served the best damn espresso I'd had in years. The owner was pleasantly snarky.

If the Zoma is Renoir, this place is Schiele.

Anyway, I'll make a point of stopping by to enhance the tip jar.
