So you're more interested in a meaningless personal challenge than verifiable elections... I'm taking notes.

Why is it so hard to believe that the majority of the state thinks their taxes are already high enough? Sore losers, it's a character flaw, work on it.

OH MY GOD! THAT explains why they voted for less jobs and increased debt in Wisconsin! Thanks for filling me in Rich!

No one LIKES higher taxes, but many realize that costs are rising and taxes have to rise proportionally IF we want to keep the same level of services. Ever since Obama whipped McCain/Pailin, you've been a sore loser. Get over it already, or better yet, enlist:)

Get outside of your programming and think about what you just said, all the components of it, all the assumptions.


For example, according to the 2009 fiscal year IRS form, [WEAC teachers union trust] the organization employed 147 people in 2010 and paid them $15,314,553. That's an average of $104,180.63 for every employee, and it's almost a million dollars more than the $14,382,812 paid to 151 employees in 2009, at an average of $95,250 per employee.

I guess it's off the "for the children" taxpayer scamming and back to the "bush" bashing......

It's their money, isn't it? Why do you want to control how teachers spend heir money?

Perhaps Mr. Cohen could tell us the date of the Obama recall election, I must have missed it.

You should seriously consider changing your chat name to "non-sequitur" or something similar

Imagine my surprise when my prediction was off by 17 points. How could that be? Barrett's internals showed the margin razor-thin. The only explanation: cheating by the GOP.

Must've been those proWalker robocalls Stu Levitan confirmed for us on election day.

You think you've got a stalker. Meade lights up the whole board whenever I post on one of the topics he's following. I can make him post any time I want to. Just watch.

Incidentally, here's a link to the latest Marquette U poll.

https://law.marquette.edu/poll/2012/06/ ... nate-race/

Thompson is way ahead of Baldwin in the general, but in the primary Mark Neumann, who runs for office as often as my dog goes out to pee, still has 2 points over our secret board favorite the drywall-punching Mr. Hovde and 6 points over Jeff Fitzgerald.

The Republicans are a mysterious tribe.
