Gallup: Wisconsin is solidly Democratic

Hard to argue if you consider Wisconsin went for Obama, has a Democrat in the governor's mansion, and both houses of the Legislature controlled by Democrats.

But the margins in the state Senate and Assembly are quite close. Previous presidential elections have been extremely tight.

Democrats are now in the hot seat and face the task of actually having to govern. They could easily blow it.

Gallup says there's an 18 perecentage point difference between Democrats and Republicans in Wisconsin. Sorry, but this remains a center to right country and I have a hard time believing the gap between the parties is that great in our state.

"Is religion an important part of your daily life?"

If this was a question about taxes, Wisconsin would rank in the top 10, despite that foolsih statement made by Governor Doyle in his State of the State about dropping out of that lofty ranking.

But the question is about religion, and Wisconsin isn't in the top 10 religious states, or 15, or 20, or 25.

Try 31st.

In Iraq...

There's still work to be done.

If it was so awful, why didn't she get the hell outta here...

A German magazine quoted Kim Basinger saying that her husband, Alec Baldwin would leave the country if George Bush won the 2000 election.  Baldwin denied making the statement and he never did leave.

American film director Robert Altman said in September 200, “If George Bush is elected president, I’m leaving for France.” Altman never left.

Former White House press secretary Pierre Salinger said, “If Bush wins, I’m going to leave the country and live the rest of my life in France.”

Why always France? Those folks are snooty and arrogant and in times of crisis, utterly useless as they hide under their mattresses.  Sounds like Baldwin and other libs would fit in nicely.

Fast forward to 2009.

Ashley Judd.

Lovely, talented, Ashley Judd.

Lovely, talented, stupid Ashley Judd.

Where exactly were you living, Ashley, when you had it soooooooooooooooo tough between 2001 and 2008?

Doyle gets McCallum-itis

During an appearance in Milwaukee today, Governor Doyle discussed Wisconsin’s budget crisis, saying everything’s on the chopping block, including shared revenue to local units of government.

When former Governor Scott McCallum proposed phasing out shared revenue to address a state budget crunch earlier this decade, it was his death knell. Democrats called for his head. They played the usual fear card of liberals that men, women, children, and pets would die in the streets without shared revenue.

Will hypocrite liberals react the same way if Doyle keeps talking about cutting shared revenue? Please…

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s response today was that the city would push for a big sales tax increase if the state cuts aid to the city.

McCallum suggests shared revenue cuts…...BAD!

Doyle makes the same suggestion………….TAX INCREASE!
