    ...of how Wisconsin's mainstream media acts as sternographers for Scott Walker and his allies: The Cap Times, a Madison-based "progressive" newspaper, declared Scott Walker to be the "winner" of the CPAC straw poll despite the fact that Rand Paul actually won the straw poll.

    The Cap Times is NOT a progressive paper...while they did publish an editorial opposing the Open-Pit Mining Bill, most of it was lifted nearly word-for-word for the written testimony that Lori Compas gave to the committee that held a 12-hour public hearing on the bill! Editorials that are lifted nearly word-for word from something that someone else wrote are not proper editorials.

    Polls don't vote, statistics don't vote, history doesn't vote, yard signs don't vote...PEOPLE VOTE!!!
