At a forum at the Waukesha County Courthouse [Thursday]:Ever the keen observer, Prof. Althouse* proceeds to link to a column by the Isthmus's Bill Lueders which clearly describes Kloppenburg's "basis" and further provides Kloppenburg's own statement:"Justice Prosser has sent a clear message that he will favor the agenda of Gov. (Scott) Walker and the Republican Legislature," Kloppenburg said. "I will apply the law to the facts of the cases before me and decide them without prejudice."What is her basis for attributing a "clear message" like that to Prosser? If she doesn't have a solid basis for that statement — and I can't see what it is — how is that supposed to jibe with her self-image as a dutiful applicant of law to fact?
In a press release on 12/8/2010, the Prosser Campaign promised that returning the incumbent to the bench would "[protect] the conservative judicial majority" on the Court which would then be able to "act as a common sense compliment [sic] to both the new administration and legislature."Twice, right there in Althouse's own link, yet: "I can't see what it is."
It's old news anyway.
Pro Tip: Read own links before engaging the fauxtrage.
* That comments thread is hilarious.
