The GOP wants this video pulled, so be sure to watch it. Here’s Sean Duffy whining about taking care of his wife and six kids on a mere $174,000 a year. OMG, he drives a used minivan, the poor thing. (Remember, he’s one of the people saying that poor people shouldn’t eat, or see doctors, or live, and that unions are the work of the devil.)

In much more interesting news, I had a sparrowhawk carrying something nearly its size fly straight at me at eye level tonight. It landed about 40 feet from me, and started eating. I decided to leave it be, and not watch that part.

Next week is mid-terms, nine weeks into a 14-week term. I will endure.

ETA: Sorry. I just saw this. I have no way of knowing if this is legitimate or not, but it looks like it.

Republican Party of Dane County. Judge Sumi is the one who says the law stripping unions of rights is illegal only because they did not allow 24 hours notice on the vote. All they would have to do to make the law legal is to give 24 hours notice, and then re-vote. Speculation is that the republicans don’t want to do it, because they know that with the public backlash, it wouldn’t pass again.
And really. R’s in Wisconsin aren’t anywhere near as bad as those in Florida or Michigan or Ohio.

RPDC Apologizes To Judge Sumi

The Republican Party of Dane County sent out a press release on March 29th criticizing Judge Maryann Sumi for holding up the publication of Governor Scott Walker’s collective bargaining reform bill. Upon further reflection we’d like to apologize for not understanding her point of view.

Sure, Governor Walker’s bill is unquestionably constitutional, increases worker’s rights and helps local government balance budgets without having to fire public workers. The Wisconsin state legislature consulted with their non-partisan parliamentarian to make sure that the passage of the bill followed the rules of the Senate and Assembly. But this isn’t about the law, is it?

The Republican Party of Dane County recognizes that Judge Sumi is a leftist living in Dane County. Her friends are leftists living in Dane County. Her son is a left wing activist in Dane County. She goes to cocktail parties held by leftists in Dane County. She shops at organic gourmet food shops run by leftists living in Dane County. If she were to enforce the law of Wisconsin and do what was in the best interest of the people of Wisconsin, she’d be exiled from her lifestyle. She’d lose her friends!

The leadership of the Republican Party of Dane County have all made the choice to stand against the Dane County elite. We accept that Left feels righteous vandalizing our homes and keying our cars. It’s only fair. We disagree based upon logic and principle. That is intolerable! We prioritize the Constitution and the well being of the people of Wisconsin over foie gras at cocktail parties. That’s the choice we made. We respect Judge Sumi’s decision to live her life with the rich diversity that liberals cherish.
