We’ve said it before: there’s no politics dirtier than small-town politics. More massively evil, more expensive, sure, but for pure spite and awfulness it’s pretty hard to beat small-town fights, at least outside of a university English department. Which brings us to the saga of Police Chief Timothy Kelemen of the town of Campbell, Wisconsin, […]

We have listened to the ceaseless drumbeat of voter fraud allegations for SO GODDAMN LONG and we honestly did figure that their overzealous searching would eventually turn up some minor thing somewhere, and then based on that minor thing, they could crow about how they were right that Demoncraps were bussing truckloads of Messicans to […]

You might recall that Wisconsin is only the latest in a long long list of states that are currently ramming hot thick gay marriage down your throats, thanks to goddamn activist judges. But the attorney general of Wisconsin is a very sore loser and does not like the taste of gay marriage, so he figured […]

We had been staying away from the awful story about the two 12-year-old Wisconsin girls who stabbed a schoolmate of the same age, supposedly under the influence of online horror stories about a fictional character named Slender Man (or Slenderman — both are used), because yecch. The good news is that the victim survived and […]

Actual Dialogue from Wonket Sekrit Chatcave, 4:35 pm, EDT: Dok Z: We should try to find something happy to round out the day Sara B: I’m writing things on Patton as we speaketh Dok Z: and maybe another state will legalize gay marriage in the next 15 minutes Rebecca S: haha So then just after 5:00, […]

We have to say that this cosplay display by Wisconsin state Rep. Brett Hulsey (D-Awesomesauce), a replacement for the stunt where he promised to hand out KKK hoods at the state Republican Party convention this weekend, is very, very, insensitive and unkind in its implication that GOP policies are motivated by racism. Look, just because a few […]

In case our North Carolina-based readers fail us and this Greg Brannon election doesn’t work out, we’re considering turning our besotted eyes towards Wisconsin state legislator Rep. Brett Hulsey, a long-shot candidate for the Democratic nomination for governor and possibly our new political man crush. If the stunt he announced yesterday is any indication, Hulsey […]

Well here’s some nice time for your Tuesday: In Wisconsin, Federal District Judge Lynn Adelman struck down the state’s dumb voter ID law (voter ID laws are, by definition, dumb), ruling that the state failed to prove that there’s any voter fraud that needs to be fixed, and that it also didn’t prove that people […]

Here’s some very measured, very partial Nice Time for you nice people! The National Rifle Association, according to a piece by Laura Bassett and Christina Wilkie at the Huffington Post, is quietly backing away from one part of its “never restrict guns ever anywhere for any reason” agenda, and has actually dropped its objections to […]

Wisconsin tabaggers don’t want to alarm anyone, they just believe in being prepared, is all, which is why they want the state to be ready to secede from the union. Not that they think they’ll really need to. So when the state’s Republican convention rolls around in May, there will be a resolution on the […]

James “I am a Camera” O’Keefe has scored another stunning victory, this time against Mike Ellis, a Republican and Wisconsin’s state Senate President. O’Keefe’s Project Veritas caught Ellis talking in a bar about setting up an illegal super PAC to collect money for his fall campaign against Democratic candidate Penny Bernard Schaber, and after the […]

Wisconsin state Sen. Tom Tiffany is very concerned about voter fraud, and so he’s going to investigate exactly one voter, to see if he did fraud. Here’s the skinny: Sen. Tiffany wrote a bill that would allow a mining company to explore for iron ore in the town of Anderson. A protest camp sprung up […]

A couple of weeks ago, I ended my column with a lie: “Next time:” I wrote, “What if Paul Ryan blew a dog whistle so loudly that everybody, not just dogs, could hear it?” Of course I had no intentions of writing about this “What If?” subject at all; I added it as a throwaway […]

Hey ladies. You know how the GOP is all wanting you to like them? And not just like them, but like them like them, because of how you are all slutty whoremonsters who vote for Democrats? Well, the Wisconsin State Assembly GOP Majority Leader is seeking to give ‘women’s outreach’ his personal touch. Unfortunately, he […]

Priorities, people, DO YOU GOT THEM? Well, Scott Walkers’s aides, who are pretty much all in prison now, sure do! They were busy little badgers up there in Wisconsin, forwarding every hi-larious racist email they could get their hands on, but they still had enough time to get this doctor fired from her hourly contract […]
