Quick November fallout

Well, it's been 2 weeks since my home state gave in to madness and elected a college dropout and a dowry-collecting d-bag in place of competent, good individuals who actually give a shit about someone who makes less than 6 figures. And I'll break down the numbers on that when I choose to get around to it (basically, I was right in that the polls were pro-GOP biased, but I was wrong in assuming the young and casual voters would realize the stakes and come out like a prez election year, and that working-class whites would be able to see through bagger BS).

But in the short-term, let's note that when Scott Walker was elected governor, the state of Wisconsin had an unemployment rate nearly 2% lower than the national average, and a poverty level also about 2 points below the national rate. I'm betting those numbers get a lot closer (if not cross) in the 2 years we'll be stuck with these clowns.

Oh, and the Cretins for Republicans Governance better back the fuck off of Marina Dmitrejevic in Milwaukee County. 1. It won't work, because Bay View actually has a pair and few senior citizens, unlike the Walker front group. 2. We have a lot more reasons to run your boy Scotty than you do Marina. And we're just biding our time to pull out our petitions.

Ya wanna bring it? We dare you. You've made the mistake of ticking off people smarter and tougher than you, and that's a deadly combination to overcome.

Lastly, I was at the Badgers' thumping of IU, and Bucky did NOT run up the score. IU rolled over as badly as any team I have seen, and last I checked, you don't stop trying to succeed, even if you're just running it up the middle. The national media folks criticizing UW clearly did not see the game, and it's insulting to hear their ill-informed takes.


  1. Exactly. It is time to put aside kumbaya until these out of control knuckleheads are put in their place -- a bar.

    In the meantime, what is the nonsense "about running up the score." It's not like the first string was kept in the whole time. Seems the only player on the Badgers who did not see playing time was the punter.

  2. Kr- It really is nonsense about UW running up the score. The last TD is by a 4th-string walk-on QB who runs a bootleg in from 20 yards. What, this guy's one chance at on-field glory is supposed to be denied? Seriously?
