This is what we get from the CHAIR of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin?  On the biggest night of Tammy Baldwin's career?  When you or your office could have been liveblogging the debate, interacting in a constructive way with the voters?

I'd think with all the money donated to the DPW via this site over the last couple of years you might be able to come up with something more substantial.  This post is senselessly juvenile coming from a high ranking party official.  Was your account hacked by a drunken intern or did you write it in your parent's basement while munching Cheetos?  Perhaps this post is an indication of what you think of us and you're writing down for your perceived audience.  

I'm sorry for the vitriol, but I'm LIVID right now.  If you can't come in here with facts and figures backed by professional opposition research then maybe you shouldn't be posting here.  Take a look at what Bernie Sanders, Alan Grayson, and Russ Feingold have posted here in the past.  That's the level of quality I expect from professional political operatives like yourself.

I'm beginning to wonder if you might be the reason we don't have a Supreme Court Justice name Joanne Kloppenburg and a Governor Tom Barrett.  Seriously if this is how your mind works...  If this is what you think is an appropriate use of your time and resources...  Maybe you're not qualified for your job.  I know it's harsh, but quite honestly, I'm embarrassed for you and think you should delete this crap.

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.

      It's entirely appropriate after what has happened in my state over the last two years.  We the People marched and organized to try and fix this state and stop Scott Walker and got weak ass support from Tate and the party.  Last night was an opportunity and the DPW and Mike Tate FAILED!  When Tammy Baldwin and Barack Obama win in Wisconsin it won't be because of childish shit like that post, it will be because We the People canvassed and phonebanked.  When Rob Zerban LOSES to Paul Fucking Ryan it will be because of poor campaigning, missed opportunities, and wasted time and resources like that piece of shit video diary last night.

      But thanks for commenting.  I expected more feedback.  I'd really like to discuss my pov.  I really do appreciate you taking the time, though.

    I think Tate's diary could have been fine on another day but to post it during the time that the Baldwin vs. Thompson debate was on rather than lead or participate in the live-blogging for it was just not real bright.  But then, there's been a lot of stuff out of the DPW over the last year and a half that I've thought wasn't real bright.  I can't imagine Russ Feingold, if he was the head of the DPW, putting up what Tate did last night.  I'm always happy to see anything that mocks Thompson----he's such a great target for mockery----but on a different day/time than when the live debate is on.  Just really bad judgment once again on Tate's part.

    I think it says a lot about what he thinks of the blogosphere, and Daily Kos in particular.

    There are a couple of frat boys who run the Dane County Republican Party who do this kind of crap all the time. I expect a little more from the chairman of DPW.

    There was no way Walker should have won the recall.  I think there was voting machine fraud there that accounts for a lot of it.
    But the party head should have taken this debate more seriously.

    Tate has a personal life as well, and I'd like to think that if ever I were as public a figure as him it wouldn't mean that I couldn't have some fun expressing myself every now and again.

    But putting this out on the official FB account?  Not cool.

    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.

    Many long-time LGBT activists were upset when he was brought in to manage the marriage amendment campaign and promptly began disappearing LGBT folk and LGBT stories from the advertising and other campaign activities.  We might have been destined for defeat anyway, but milquetoasting our lives certainly didn't work, either.
