Case in point would be in regards to Robin Vos. Almost everyone - with the possible exception of Michelle Litjens and a handful of Koch/Bradley Foundation employees - would agree that Robin Vos needs to go. There are few that are as sleazy, disreputable, greedy and power hungry as Vos.
So when it was announced that Vos was going to be primaried, one might have thought it good news. But they actually found someone even crazier and more to the right than even Vos - a secessionist:
According to the Racine Journal Times, Bryn Biemeck -- the Republican taking on Vos this fall -- is touting her support of states' rights. That's the reason she said she is opposing the Common Core education standards for Wisconsin schools.Sadly, the Democrats have yet to put up anyone to run against these doofuses.
Biermeck -- a 28-year-old bank employee -- said she also backs a resolution that will be taken up at the state's Republican Party convention in Milwaukee next month that “supports legislation that upholds Wisconsin’s right, under extreme circumstances, to secede."
The Mount Pleasant Republican said she believes in “approaching states’ rights (with) that attitude.”
The fact that the Dems haven't put up anyone in that race is because they are also busy jumping into the deep end.
Today, State Brett Hulsey announced that he was also running for governor. Husley is saying all the right things that Mary Burke won't. He's for reversing Act 10, protecting the environment and restoring public education.
Burke, on the other hand, has been doing double talk regarding Act 10, claiming that she wants to restore collective bargaining for public sector workers, but then goes on to praise Act 10, which took those rights away.
It was refreshing to hear a politician speak with passion and like a progressive. Unfortunately, as Wisconsin Soap Box points out, Hulsey has so much baggage that he needs to turn in his red convertible for a 8-ton box truck.
If only there was a way to take Husley's platform and passion and combine it with Burke's calm demeanor and big money, we'd be talking about the Dems winning in a landslide.
Instead, we are all just jumping into the crazy season with both feet.
