    Ruth Conniff, the editor of The Progressive Magazine, wrote this piece which, at first, appears to be a piece promoting Burke's candidacy, however, Conniff said that Burke has a "Mitt Romney problem" (and it's not the first time she's done that).

    My parents made me a Democrat. Scott Walker made me a progressive.

      You too have made that point.

      But you've been quoted on the WisGOP's maryburke.com site, so now is the perfect time to edit that diary for those who google your diary title and provide them with any greetings you see fit!

      Fake candidates nominated by the GOP for the recalls: 6 out of 7. Fake signatures on the recall petitions: 4 out of 1,860,283.

          1) File suit against them, asserting trademark rights.  Then either:
          2a) Receive domain name, or
          2b) WisGOP throws money at expensive lawyers, anticipating Burke to do the same, but
          3b) Burke doesn't do the same, WisGOP becomes sad that they wasted money on lawyers instead of ads.

            enormous amounts of money.  They don't care if they waste it.  They've got billionaire donors and pay bloggers to infest news blogs with RW trollery.
