Scott Walker Gets Some Chris Christie All Over Him, On Purpose

Image via YouTube With a little over a week to go before Election Day, Scott Walker is increasingly a man in need of a helping hand. His once-certain re-election as King of Wisconsin has taken up residence in every pollster’s “no idea, don’t ask us” box, the U.S. Supreme Court cruelly dashed his hopes of excluding thousands of largely Democratic voters from the polls, a new batch of documents just dropped from the investigation that’s taken down a half-dozen of his underlings and cronies, and his opponent Mary Burke has been landing punches (with ads) and drawing big crowds with visits from a string of Democratic superstars.

Green Bay Alderman Will Listen To Citizen Just As Soon As She Isn’t A Terrorist

A nice lady in Green Bay, Wisconsin, wrote her alderman, because she is a good citizen. “Hey,” she wrote, “howsabout some free bus service on Election Day for the poors and democracy and suchlike?” But she wrote it classier because she is not Yr Wonkette. “Sure,” Chris Wery responded, “just as soon as you, A Muslim, denounce and renounce Sharia law and Hamas.” Well, um, hrmmmm?

RNC Lady Wishes You Weren’t Stupid, Wisconsin

Everyone say hello to Sharon Day, co-chair of the Republican National Committee and today’s winner of the “Shhh! You’re Not Supposed To Say That Out Loud” award. Day was visiting Wisconsin to fire up the troops working to re-elect Scott Walker as governor when she spoke the following aloud at a field office in Waukesha.

Oh Hey, Looks Like That Lady Might Beat Scott Walker, Huh!

Hey, what do I know?
Republican Gov. Scott Walker might be too busy pre-presidenting to notice the disaster he’s been as union-busting boss of the great state of Wisconsin, but a new Marquette University poll suggests that a growing number of likely voters in the state are on to him. Scotty is now running neck-and-neck with his Democratic challenger, former state commerce secretary and Trek Bicycle executive Mary Burke, among those who say they’re most likely to show up to the polls in November.

Republicans Celebrate Success Of Voter Suppression With Fancy Luncheon

One smug bastard
Photo by Beth Ethier Voter fraud is so hot right now. This year’s midterm elections are only a few weeks away, and courts are still ruling left and right on the identification requirements that states can impose on their voters as a remedy to the virtually non-existent threat of voter impersonation.

Rachel Maddow: Voting Is A Right, Just Like Gay Marriage (Video)

Pennies from heaven...
Monday night, Rachel Maddow was positively giddy about the Supreme Court’s decision to let stand lower courts’ pro-marriage equality rulings. By Tuesday, she was wondering whether federal courts would figure out that voting is supposed to be a fairly absolute right as well.

Gay Supreme Court Jams Gay Gay Marriage Down Red States’ Gay Gay Gay Throats (With Gayness)

A gaysplosion of gay all over gay America
The Supreme Court is sick and tired of your whining, red states, and does not even want to hear you cry about gay marriage anymore. The justices already told you your dumb marriage bans are dumb, and what part of “IT’S THE 21ST CENTURY, GET OVER IT ALREADY!!!” do you not understand?

Voter Fraud Is Real, And It’s All Republicans

Sometimes you just forget you already did that
Republican governors and secretaries of state are determined to stop the scourge of Voter Fraud, by ensuring that the wrong kind of people can’t vote. (Poors, minorities, Democrats — you know the type.) Sure we laugh at them, but it’s no laughing matter. Voter fraud is a real problem. Among Republicans, anyway.

Ladies, Stop Offending Ann Romney With How Stupid You Are

Offended Egg is offended
How many times does Her Royal Horse-Riding Majesty Ann Romney have to explain this to YOU PEOPLE? Sheesh! This so-called “war on women” claptrap Democrats can’t stop blah blahing about is so dumb and so 2012 and so not even real anyway, so why are women — who are so much smarter than Democrats think they are — so stupid as to keep falling for it?

Wisconsin Militia Will Save Election From Criminal Democrats (And Not Just The Black Ones)

Republicans in Wisconsin, and those few Democrats who are not criminals, should be feeling extra safe about Election Day this November. That’s because some anti-labor irregulars left over from the Wisconsin Union Wars are vowing to protect democracy from the many tax dodgers and fugitives who might be tempted to vote against Republican governor and urine enthusiast Scott Walker.

Scott Walker Will Fight For Wisconsin’s Right To Collect Poor People’s Pee

Scott Walker, locked in a tight race for his second term as governor of Wisconsin, wants his constituents to know he’s committed to their conservative Midwestern values. It’s all right there in his campaign’s new manifesto, “Continuing Wisconsin’s Comeback”: If you give him four more years, he promises to cut property taxes, celebrate deer hunting heritage, supervise manly red-hot iron pours, and relentlessly pursue the urine of the state’s unemployed.

Senator Ron Johnson To Little Lady Senator: Pics Or GTFO

Wisconsin’s Ron Johnson (R-Of course) has only been a member of the United States Senate for about five minutes (technically he was elected in 2010, which in Senate years is five minutes), but he sure knows a thing or three about how there has never been a single moment of less-than-perfect decorum. (He was not yet in the Senate when Vice President Dick Cheney told Sen. Patrick Leahy to quote unquote GO FUCK YOURSELF back in 2004, so that wouldn’t even count.)

Mary Burke Just Might Kill Gov. Scott Walker’s Dreams of Losing GOP Presidential Primary

o hai
Scott Walker’s job security as King of Wisconsin and Union-Buster in Chief appears increasingly precarious, even as he is road tripping to push for a promotion to that oval-shaped office in Washington. Marquette Law School just released a third consecutive poll showing the 2016 presidential hopeful in a dead heat for re-election with his Democratic challenger, former state commerce secretary and Trek Bicycle executive Mary Burke.

Wingnuts Expose Leftist Google Group Before It Can Conquer America

Took some real ace detective work by Mediatrackers' seasoned investigators to crack this conspiracy.
Pity the poor wingnuts. They worked so hard to bust ACORN into a million pieces and salt the earth so no part of it would ever grow back. Little did they know that the Progressive Menace was just using ACORN as a distraction while it rebuilt the most fearsome of all anti-American organizations dedicated to spreading leftist propaganda like the Ebola virus: JournoList, which has been reconstituted as a closed Google Group called Gamechanger Salon. And the conservative website Mediatrackers.org is ON IT. Read more on Wingnuts Expose Leftist Google Group Before It Can Conquer America…

Wisconsin Police Chief Takes Trolling Of Local Tea Party Leader To New, Harassy Levels

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, who was charged Thursday with creating fake online accounts for Obamacare and gay porn in the name of a local Tea Party leader he’d been feuding with since last August. Needless to say, this was very, very bad and we would never ever recommend such behavior AT ALL, not ever.

This Wisconsin GOP Donor Is The Very Bestest At Voter Fraud

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 vote for Obama. Well, all that looking for fraud did indeed locate some fraudliness, but it probably wasn’t what they’d hoped. Let’s get to know one Robert Monroe, Wisconsin Republican donor and multiple ballot-caster. Read more on This Wisconsin GOP Donor Is The Very Bestest At Voter Fraud…

Wisconsin Attorney General Thinks Maybe Clerks Issuing Gay Marriage Licenses Should Be Drawn And Quartered

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 that maybe if he just kinda sorta threatens to prosecute the county clerks issuing marriage licenses, he can shut the whole thing down.

Worst Psychiatrist Ever Wants Drug Warnings On Facebook Because ‘Slender Man’ Makes Kids Stabby

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 has been released from the hospital; her attackers have been charged as adults, with attempted murder. But now we have to mention it, because Dr. Keith Ablow, the world’s worst psychiatrist, has weighed in on the case, and he wants to know just why the Surgeon General isn’t requiring warnings on Facebook and maybe the YouTubes, because scary ghost stories are clearly causing children to take knives and attack other children. In a completely unrelated story, “Dr.” Ablow also explained, based on no information at all, that the school shooting in Oregon this morning was the result of untreated mental illness, and had nothing to do with the easy availability of guns.

Wisconsin Democrat Yells At GOP While Dressed As Confederate Soldier. As You Do.

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 of Scott Walker’s aides have been fired for sending racist emails, and the R’s have done everything they can to kill Medicaid expansion and stuff, doesn’t mean that it’s fair to suggest that Wisconsin Republicans are racist. Besides, neither was the Confederacy. Read more on Wisconsin Democrat Yells At GOP While Dressed As Confederate Soldier. As You Do….
