Stuff to know before Tuesday's Wisconsin Supreme Court vote

In the "timing is everything' department...

Less than 2 hours later, Nikolas Cruz showed up at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and opened fire with an NRA-approved AR-15 semiautomatic assault rifle. A total of 17 students and teachers are now dead as a result.

If you needed another reason to vote for Tim Burns or Rebecca Dallett in Tuesday's Supreme Court primary, there it is.

And yes, it matters that you come out to vote in this primary, even more than most elections. In the last contested Supreme Court primary, in 2016, only 567,000 votes were cast, a turnout of less than 19%. And of that, 252,000 were the right-wing sheep that voted for Bigoted Becky Bradley.

So if we ratchet turnout up to 800,000 or 900,000 (27-30% turnout), then that would likely be enough for both Burns and Dallett to advance to the April General Election, and knock out right-wing puppet Screnock in the process. That would be a major upgrade from Crooked Michael Gableman, and a huge step toward getting this state back toward respectability.



  1. I feel like I owe it to the victims of gun crime to vote for gun control candidates. It's the least I can do for my kids and the next generation.

  2. Agree, and the only way to remove the stranglehold the NRA has on this public health issue is to FIRE EVERY POLITICIAN THAT TAKES THEIR MONEY.

    So vote Tuesday, and start to,break the downward cycle

  3. Another good one, you've likely found it already:
