Will republicans outlaw this, too? $35 per ticket. Too much for me, plus it will be too cold.

35 bucks? I need to seriously consider this. I'm so happy he won and got rid of the wretched son of a bitch who ran this state into the ground for 8 years.

was that walker's 2011 inaugural ball where the cops nabbed someone who was hitting revelers with a big roll of contact paper and yelling about the pope? it sort of sounded like scopolamine in one form or another was a factor . . .

the faster walker decamps from the capitol & governor's residence the better; of course that fuck chop incubus vos idiot savant and others are still inside. . .hmmm . . . i have an idea. it came to me when i saw the bell-ringers (for the salvation army, not the kind of injection) and i remembered a tidbit of the history of christianity: the salvation army actually was involved in street fighting in the 1880s, against an opposition (people who wanted to get ploughed in peace) known as the skeleton army:

https://knowledgenuts.com/2015/05/16/wh ... eton-army/
In Weston-super-Mare, a mob of 2,000 Skeletons temporarily overpowered the police and attacked a Salvationist procession. Later, a Salvationist service was interrupted when a window was smashed and a flock of pigeons coated in red pepper was released inside. As the Salvationists rushed out to escape the ensuing cloud of burning pepper and enraged birds, they were attacked by a waiting Skeleton Army.


. . . . see u all on 7. january!

It will be a warm day in January when Walker leaves office. Who are the "Former governors and other dignitaries expected to attend"? Tommy Thompson and who else?

https://www.channel3000.com/news/what-y ... /969535552

"The Inauguration officially starts at 11 a.m. WISC News 3 will have team coverage of the event. Highlights of inauguration day in Wisconsin:

-Democrat Tony Evers will be sworn into office as Wisconsin's 46th governor, replacing Republican Gov. Scott Walker, at a ceremony in the Capitol rotunda. Former governors and other dignitaries are expected to attend.

-Music at the inauguration ceremony prior to the swearing in will be provided by the 132nd Army Band of the Wisconsin National Guard, Tomah High School Band, Eau Claire Madrigals from Eau Claire Memorial High School, Latino Arts Strings Program Mariachi & Infantil Mariachito Sol, and the William J. Reed Community Choir.

-In addition to Evers, all other constitutional officers elected in November will be sworn into office. They are all Democrats, marking the first time since 1983 that all offices will be held by Democrats. Those being sworn in are Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, Attorney General Josh Kaul, Treasurer Sarah Godlewski and Secretary of State Doug La Follette. La Follette is the only incumbent.

-Newly elected members of the state Legislature will also be sworn into office. In the Assembly, 63 Republicans and 36 Democrats will be seated. Of them, eight Republicans and seven Democrats are new. In the Senate, 11 Republicans and six Democrats are taking office. Of them, three Republicans and one Democrat are new. Republicans will hold a 19-14 majority.

-After the swearing-in ceremonies, Evers will hold a public receiving line for two hours outside the governor's office in the Capitol.

-That night, just down the street from the Capitol at the Monona Terrace, Evers will host the inaugural ball to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee. Madison's DJ Boyfrrriend, Oshkosh's KWT with Tom Washatka and Milwaukee's Abby Jeanne and New Age Narcissism. Other performers include Platinum, the Plymouth High School Marching Band, and Black Star Drum Line."

Was a huge crowd on Monday nite - definitely larger than the two previous ones. Very diverse as well - not just in race but social class too. Upbeat and positive vibes all around, with some folks wearing black tie attire and others dressed a lot more casually.

Ran into a few old friends and acquaintances. Shook hands with Fred Risser, made quick chit-chat with Mark Pocan (he was a popular guy - everybody was wanting his attention), and had a nice long talk with Kevin Gundlach.

Crowd thinned out a little bit after the Gov and Lt Gov had their speeches, but quite a few folks still partied on until the music stopped around 11ish. All-in-all, it looked like everyone had a great time.

Bonus: None of the violence & bloodshed that occurred at the previous inauguration ball happened at this event.
