I have had ENOUGH of the bullshit analysis of last Tuesday's election.  It's HISTORY!  I'm done listening to armchair quarterbacks and WATBs moaning and groaning.  The next battle is less than five months away and there is absolutely NO TIME for any of that crap!  When life hands you lemons make lemonade...  We've got candidates and campaigns and we need to focus our momentum behind them.  First item on my agenda is shit-canning Paul F*ING Ryan!


Rob Zerban, a small businessman who has been challenging Congressman Paul Ryan since last summer, will submit nearly 2,300 nomination signatures from all parts of Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District to place himself on the ballot to oppose incumbent Paul Ryan (R-Janesville).

In an announcement to supporters, Zerban announced the amount reflects about 230% of what's required. He will appear at the Government Accountability Board offices in Madison Friday (6/1) afternoon to hand in the signatures.


Zerban's campaign has maintained that Zerban presents the best chance thus far to unseat Ryan, who has been the 1st District's Congressman since 1999. To date, no debates between the two candidates have been confirmed, but Patch is working with both campaigns to secure a date sometime in October.

Now, I could go on and on again about WHY we need to stop Paul Ryan, but I won't.  Not here...  Not right now.  I really don't think you need ME to remind you what he's been up to.  I also don't think you need me to tell you much about Rob Zerban either.  All you really need to know is that he's standing up to take on Ryan....

Okay, you've heard from me, now let's hear from you!  Tell me who you're fighting for between now and November.  Give me links to ActBlue and I'll update the diary.  Let's make a comprehensive list of all of our Wisconsin candidates and make some f*ing lemonade!

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.
