Oh, look at that – I forgot I had a blog.
I wrote a quick election wrap-up for the Isthmus this week, in which I wonder who the voters are that voted for Barack Obama for president in 2008 and Scott Walker for Wisconsin governor in 2010.
While I tried to be magnanimous in victory, (I actually appreciate the principled race Russ Feingold ran) the paper coupled my column with a hysterical, screechy piece by Ruth Conniff. When the GOP got their asses kicked in 2006 and 2008, I wrote plenty about it – but I don’t recall ever being so aggressively obdurate. I mean, really – the Republican plan is for the “radical destruction” of Wisconsin? Good grief.
