To be presented at black tie dinner in October.Well, in the interest of bipartisanship, we at Cog Dis would like to make a recommendation for their award.
RightWisconsin.com is proud to announce the first annual Margaret Thatcher Award to honor the contributions, courage and leadership of Wisconsin’s Iron Ladies.
The award, named after the late British Prime Minister, will be presented at the Right Women Awards Dinner, a formal black tie event that will be held on Friday, October 18 at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee.
The Honorary Chair of the Dinner is Wisconsin First Lady Tonette Walker.
Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch will chair the award selections committee, which features a cross-section of prominent conservative women.
The committee will solicit and review nominations for the Margaret Thatcher Award as well as three other awards recognizing exceptional achievement among conservative women in Wisconsin politics.
Lt. Gov. Kleefisch will also emcee the program of the Right Women Dinner, along with 620 WTMJ host Charlie Sykes. Sykes also is editor-in-chief of RightWisconsin. A keynote speaker will be announced at a later date.
The dinner will celebrate trailblazers, innovators and champions of freedom among conservative women in Wisconsin politics.
"Margaret Thatcher is a matchless example of a conservative woman: strong and principled, frugal and virtuous and I am honored to lead the selection committee to choose the inaugural award winners. Wisconsin has a unique, bright and growing number of conservative women whose efforts and ideas will be recognized through the 'Right Women Awards,’" Lt. Governor Kleefisch said.
The woman we wish to nominate is a true conservative, successful woman. She has been a reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. She has also had a stellar career as a judge, serving as a State Supreme Court Justice and is currently a Federal Justice. As for her credentials as a conservative, our nominee is also a member of the Federalist Society.
Ladies and gentlemen, our nominee for the first ever recipient of the Margaret Thatcher Award is none other than Diane Sykes.
And frankly, if Justice Sykes doesn't win, the contest has to be obviously rigged and phony as Charlie Sykes' hair.
*Full disclosure - I work for Emerge Wisconsin and I am damn proud of it.
**I wonder if they got permission from Thatcher's estate to use her name and likeness.
