I awoke an hour ago with sharp warning buzzers in my head, and the realization that the pending Wisconsin Supreme Court election isn't really about the incumbent, David Prosser, who when not in re-election mode has not been all that bad.

The true nightmare scenario has Prosser resigning, either very soon, or in a few months, but in any case, in time for the Pigfucker Governor to make a 10 year appointment to complete the term.

At first, I figured Walker would dip in one of 3 pools, the Fetus crowd, the Corpos, or a Nixonoid law and order/Drugwar District Attorney. It gets worse. He can go for the Trifecta, by nominating Juneau County DA Scott Southworth,

Southworth last drew national attention a year ago, threatening to prosecute School Board members for allowing school staff to comply with State law mandating education on birth control.

The politically ambitious Southworth had previously teased, but not followed up on, a run for Congress against Democratic incumbent Ron Kind.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
