This Just In ...

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.

Kevin Barrett and anyone who votes for him...


Nutjobs, one and all.

Kevin Barrett, you may recall, is the former UW professor and still fruitcake who thinks the U.S. planned and pulled off the terrorist attacks on 9-11.

Barrett is running for Congress against Ron Kind, as a Libertarian.

The Capital Times, commies that they are, had no trouble running out and finding Madisonians who, while they can’t vote for Barrett,  are more than happy to gush all over this space cadet and give money to his worthless campaign.

Get a load of these quotes.



"He's got guts. He's not afraid of controversy. A lot of people will run from controversy, especially if it means doing so on national television. He has faced those Fox people with bat in hand."

Michael Anthony, self-employed handyman who is as just as goofy as Barrett. Anthony says our government “certainly had a hand in” 9-11.

Uh huh.

Here’s another whippersnapper from our young set of today,
Andy Albrecht, a UW-Madison student of political science. He gave $20 at a Barrett fundraiser. What pearls of wisdom does this first-time voter (oy vay) have to say?

"I like that he supports the truth. He really pushes the truth. He's not afraid to stand up for what he believes in."

Oh I bet Mom and Dad Albrecht are mighty proud. This newspaper clipping is definitely going into the family scrapbook along with all those anti-war rally pictures.

Barbara Wright owns the Dardanelles restaurant in Madison, the site of Barrett’s fundraiser.

“There needs to be some truth spoken about what is going on with our government, about the repression in society and the move toward fascism, the gutting of the middle class and the truth behind 9/11. I think that one of the ways you fight the fear that people feel is to get together as a community and talk about things.”

I admit that I’m a bit unclear as to what happens at that point, not being a member of the beads and sandals crowd, but I think it goes something like this:

You hold my hand.

I hold yours.

Hummmmmmmmmmm………

All togerther now.

Kumbaya, my Lord, kumbaya

Kumbaya, my Lord, kumbaya

Kumbaya, my Lord, kumbaya

O Lord, kumbaya


And to think.

Overseas, heroic young American men and women are dying so Kevin Barrett can trash them and our government.

Note to Barrett and his flaky supporters: THAT is the truth.

The 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time or, Would you look at that...Elvis makes another list

ELVIS


Just in time for Summerfest, Rolling Stone is out with its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time.

It should come as no surprise that Elvis makes the list at #37 with, “That’s All Right, Mama,” his very first recording.

Rolling Stone writes:

Lead guitarist Scotty Moore's hillbilly blues has become ground zero for the last 54 years' worth of rockabilly. On Elvis' first single, the guitarist's lusty solo matches Elvis' vocals and rhythm guitar perfectly — it's hard to believe this is the only second time they played together.”

The #1 song on the list:

The hateful left on Tim Russert

This is extremely disgusting.

Since the passing of Tim Russert, conservatives and liberals alike have found ways to offfer kind tributes.

That does not include the fringe wacko hateful nutjob left.

There's more. Matt Purple is keeping track.

Ugly Americans? Hardly

The world hates us.

As we speak, there are dangerous, evil people plotting to kill you and me.
