And Mike Plaisted notes that local squawker James "Hip Musings" Harris may have inadvertently broken some news, but with a caveat:
It is entirely possible that Walker told Harris that because he knew he was stupid enough to believe it and it would end what must have been a tedious ["national"] conversation with him.Those labor unions that supported Scott Walker's career political ambitions are exempt from the governor's stomping all over their collective bargaining rights, which even the otherwise dependable Republican lapdog Patrick McIlheran admitted yesterday on Charlie Sykes's Milwaukee teevee programme was a quid pro quo kickback.
"I'm very disappointed," said [Milwaukee] Ald. Michael Murphy, a critic of the newly elected governor. "It seems to be almost like a pay-to-play."Huh. So McIlheran is not just a voice crying in the wilderness.
And lest we forget:
Our campaign efforts will include building an organization that will return Justice Prosser to the bench, protecting the conservative judicial majority and acting as a common sense compliment [sic] to both the new [Republican] administration and [Republican] legislature. — Prosser for Supreme CourtThat's encouraging too (bedrock constitutional principles aside).
Voters have a chance to stop those efforts in their tracks tomorrow.
