...would probably not get reelected."
So claims the president of a polling organization that has just released numbers that look dreadful for Wisconsin's tax and spend governor.
Doyle trails both Scott Walker and Mark Neumann.
There has been talk circulating around the state Capitol that Doyle will not run again. If he does, he'll have to somehow defend that obscene state budget he's about to sign into law in a few weeks.
Do you have any idea what’s in your garbage right now?
No, that’s not a smart aleck question. Yes, I know you have garbage in your garbage. Specifically, what’s in there?
An old McDonald’s cardboard box and bag?
Bones from barbecued ribs?
For the benefit of this blog, it’s best if you play along and know what’s in your garbage bags. So let’s take a brief timeout…
I’M NOT GETTING’ UP AND DRAGGING MYSELF OVER TO THE GARBAGE JUST TO STICK MY NOSE IN AND LOOK IN THERE. ARE YOU KIDDIN’ ME?
No, just humor me.
Just click the upcoming video, we’ll take a short break, you check out your garbage, and it will mean so much more as we go along.

And I’d start with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel sports columnist Michael Hunt. Did you see his attack piece on Favre today? This gem stuck out with me:
“While Favre was overly mythologized - and the media bears responsibility here - at the end of the day he was not a whole lot more than Will Ferrell throwing footballs.”

EVERY SUNDAY I REVIEW THE MOST COVETED EDITORIAL PAGES OF THE WEEK BY OPINION-MAKERS AS WELL AS THE MOST WIDELY-READ, THE SUNDAY “CROSSROADS” SECTION OF THE MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. I WILL KEEP TRACK OF THE CONSERVATIVE AND LIBERAL PIECES CONTRIBUTED BY NON-JOURNAL SENTINEL WRITERS AND KEEP A RUNNING SCORE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.
It should also be noted that this exercise is a categorization. Most, if not all of these articles submitted to, or solicited by the Crossroads staff are well-written, thoughtful, and provocative. I enjoy reading them as I have every Sunday for as long as I can remember. This weekly compilation is an ideological scorecard, not a writing critique.
