I know you are frustrated by the outcome of the state Supreme Court election. I am at wit’s end too. I want to spew expletives from the rooftops, but will try to speak my piece as gently and respectfully as I can.
Another election, another round of venting and fuming about stupid, unthinking people voting against their own interests. You ask for the umpteenth time how long will it take for them to wake up and see they are being sold down the river.
The thing is, Mike McCabe is not an insider, which makes him an outsider and according to the insiders in the WISDEMS, that makes him a larger threat to their hold of their small slice of pie than the WISGOP.
Witness this from former Wisconsoin Democratic Party head Mike Tate!
That is a rant for the ages, and aimed at Mr. McCabe but too cowardly to mention him by name, When there is someone who wants to get money out of politics, it seriously infringes on people who are bloodsuckers in politics and want a piece of that pie.
The Ironic thing is while Mr. Tate is talking about winning elections, giving to candidates and driving turnout. Mike was turning the County Exec race very dirty and smearing his old friend Chris Larson(who supported Tate for party chair) as a Walker clone. In this race, there was no doubt that Chris Larson was the Progressive candidate next to anti-labor Chris Abele.
The research shows that the biggest benefit of dirty campaigning is to drive down turnout. How many people stayed home because of the fiasco that was the county executives race?
The absolute most ironic thing of the year is this: "unless you gave whatever you could to the Kloppenburg campaign and not Bernie or Hillary, I just don't think you get to complain. $5 to Kloppenburg would have gne alot further than to Bernie...."
