Other than "anybody but Kleefisch", I don't. I really know virtually nothing about either Democratic candidate. But I know they're not Kleefisch. At least I hope they're not. That Rebecca is a sneaky one!

Mandela has many endorsements. If he doesn't win the Dem side, something is wrong.

the mastermind of the walker administration's attempt to get rid of elected constitutional offices now is the queen of the xix. amendment memorial . . . o k . . .

it has been a interesting if wrong-headed movement . . . even a volatile shithead cuck* radio host on the left ran in 1990 for secretary of state I think it was on a similar platform and beat like a drum on election night . . .

and i i r c it was at least at the time a dearly-held dream of our current congressman in addition to reducing the size of the dane county board of supervisors to seven because 39 was "unwieldly" and he wanted to wield more power if he ever got the chance, and his people had lost two elections in a row if memory serves . . . .he luckily became more small-d democratically inclined as a member of the general assembly and now clowngress, a well-above average member of that body . . .

it is not heresy, and I will not recant
