  •  The WI GOP seems to be a bit skittish... (2+ / 0-)

    ...about the mining bill, despite appearing to have the votes to pass that (there's only one Republican in the state senate, Dale Schultz, who appears to be against it, and Democrats would need their entire state senate caucus AND at least two state senate Republicans to derail the mining bill).

    I think the WI GOP is a bit skittish about when to time the passage of the mining bill, as they don't want to cause an anti-GOP backlash right before a state supreme court election that is the single-most important election in the entire country in 2013.

      Calm before the storm, but Walkers strategists have said that this will be Walkers strategy.  He'll be a pretend moderate, but we're out there ready to take him on in 2014.  I'm hoping for a great candidate.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

        Outgamie County Executive Tom Nelson...He's apparently been fundraising and some insiders have been throwing his name around as a potential gubernatorial candidate.

        Whether or not he's reelected, I'm about 100% positive he will pull a Snyder. My greatest concern is for the fate of same day registration...

          is to point out that this would be vote rigging, just like Voter ID and the gerrymandered districts.  Repeat it until "election rigging" becomes synonymous with Republican.

          People hate politics - particularly politics that do nothing but feather ones nest.  And this is politicking at its worst.  Let the GOP destroy itself.
