Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely young daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
Blogger Right from the Right has an interesting perspective on the media coverage of the massive flooding in Iowa.
With tongue firmly implanted in cheek, he says the coverage is “racist.”
Liberals erroneously scream that Republicans want to prevent people from voting by pushing for a photo ID requirement.
Actually, Repubicans merely want voters to be who they say they are before they cast their ballots.
If anyone wants to prohibit people from voting, it’s liberals.
Charlie Sykes writes in the Wisconsin Interest:
“No sooner had the votes been counted and liberal Supreme Court Justice Louis Butler ousted from the state’s high court than the outrage began.
Governor Jim Doyle, who had appointed Butler to the high court declared the result a ‘tragedy,’ while liberals and their allies in the media immediately embraced voter suppression on a massive scale. Upset by the results, state Representative Fred Kessler (D-Milwaukee) proposed the elimination of elections for justice altogether and the state’s largest newspaper, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, embraced his call for disenfranchisement.”
Here’s Charlie’s entire piece.
Add the editorial board of the Wisconsin State Journal to the list of folks who want to take your vote away.
They’ve decided it would be best if judges got on the bench via some merit selection system, and they offer some lame reasons.
All because a conservative was elected to the state Supreme Court in April. Had Louis Butler won, there’d be complete silence.
1) To provide health insurance for everyone in the country, including jailed felons and illegal immigrants.
2) To provide cash payments from cradle to death for any number of reasons including inability to see the blackboard in the 4th grade and simply because my mother, her mother, and her mother’s mother also received welfare checks.
3) To attempt to solve every problem known to mankind rather than allow human beings to work hard to pull themselves up by the proverbial bootstraps and gain economic independence.
If you are a liberal, you answered, all of the above.
If you have a modicum of common sense and knowledge of government, you would have answered, “to secure our borders.”
If that was your answer, congratulations.
Is George Bush the greatest President ever?
You know why?
He had a tendency to spend too much.
But for the past couple of years, I’ve mentioned on television and radio what a successful and noteworthy President George Bush has been.
How many terrorist attacks have been made on our country, on George Bush’s watch, since 9-11, almost seven years ago?
Everyone, including the Bush haters on the left know the answer.
Now, liberals who read my blog, and there are a ton because of two reasons:
1) The incense and sandals crowd has no life, so to inject a bit of excitement, they read conservative blogs (like mine) and listen to conservative talk radio so they can rush to their keyboards and write intelligent garbage like, “Fischer bad. McIlheran evil. Sykes and Belling, the worst (How do they think that stuff up so fast?).
2) Liberal blogs are like watching paint dry. Boring as hell. Sheer bumper sticker emotion and no facts.
Conservatives are interesting people with senses of humor, whether you like them or not.
I have a kajillion liberal friends and associates (who, by the way, don’t want me to step in front of a train and don’t hate me) who admit readily they love to read conservative blogs and listen to conservsative talk radio to, of course, hear what the other side is saying, but also because it’s GOOD STUFF! THEY ARE INTERESTED! THEY ARE ENTERTAINED! Could that be why liberal talk radio in America has gone over like a fart (sorry, Mom) in church?
Let’s get back to the issue at hand.
(By the way, most liberals reading this blog stopped reading at the 3rd paragraph and have already reached some hateful conclusion).
Ann Coulter writes about what I’ve been saying for years on radio and TV. George Bush has been amazing because after 9-11, he protected this country……..PERIOD!
Coulter in her most recent column writes:
“The man responsible for keeping Americans safe from another terrorist attack on American soil for nearly seven years now will go down in history as one of America's greatest presidents.
Produce one person who believed, on Sept. 12, 2001, that there would not be another attack for seven years, and I'll consider downgrading Bush from "Great" to "Really Good."
Merely taking out Saddam Hussein and his winsome sons Uday and Qusay (Hussein family slogan: "We're the Rape Room People!") constitutes a greater humanitarian accomplishment than anything Bill Clinton ever did -- and I'm including remembering Monica's name on the sixth sexual encounter.
But unlike liberals, who are so anxious to send American troops to Rwanda or Darfur, Republicans oppose deploying U.S. troops for purely humanitarian purposes. We invaded Iraq to protect America.
It is unquestionable that Bush has made this country safe by keeping Islamic lunatics pinned down fighting our troops in Iraq. In the past few years, our brave troops have killed more than 20,000 al-Qaida and other Islamic militants in Iraq alone. That's 20,000 terrorists who will never board a plane headed for JFK -- or a landmark building, for that matter.”

Those were all a long time ago.
Today’s TV images of fathers are Homer Simpson-like buffoons.
Same deal in commercials.
Ask most dads around the country and they’ll tell you they’re dissed more often than not in the media and in advertising.
The pendulum might be swinging, though, ever so slowly, led by companies like Hallmark.
Here’s more from the Kansas City Star:

Clever devil that I am, I called the blog a Culinary no-no.
My plans were to write a few related blogs over the summer and then pull the plug.
After all, how many blogs can you come up with that say you shouldn’t salt this or use a heavy cream on that?
But then the blog evolved, and for reasons I can’t explain, became popular. Real popular. It’s one of my most –viewed blogs, making the top five or close to it every week. I've written 58 Culinary no-no's since last summer.
On this Father’s Day and one-year anniversary of Culinary no-no, here’s the blog that started it all, numero uno.
I also went back and checked for the Culinary no-no that was the most popular.
