  •  EXCUSE ME? (0+ / 0-)

    Why do you feel the need to insult the rest of the state?  I am so tired of hearing how outside of Madison, we're all a bunch of redneck hicks.  You have no idea.

    •  Yes I do. (0+ / 0-)

      I live in Wisconsin's hinterlands.  I was even born here.  In fact, my ancestors have been living here since the 1840s.  I have ancestors who fought with Wisconsin during the Civil War, another who survived the Great Peshtigo Fire, some who made fortunes here, even one who has been into space.

      I repeat, Wisconsin has plenty of meatheads.

        I bet there are even plenty of meatheads in Madison.
