John Nichols: Gerrymandering empowers obstructionists like Robin Vos and Scott Fitzgerald | John Nichols 

Gerrymandering is a vile scourge on democracy all over the country. But one could argue it’s at its worse right here in Wisconsin. We had the perfect putrid petre dish for it with the Three HorsesAsses of the Apocolypse — Robin Vos, Scott Fitzgerald and Scott Walker. We got rid of one. And we have to finish the job before the Great State of Wisconsin is nothing more than Wisissippi.

The gerrymandering of Wisconsin’s Legislature is now so severe that legislators are less interested in respecting the will of the people than at any time in Wisconsin history.

Marc Thiessen: Democrats, not Trump, are biggest threat to Constitution. 

The horse’s ass is complaining that D’s will “abolish the electoral college and might also pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices …”

You (Rs) refuse even a hearing and stall on a Supreme Court nominee, suppress the vote from coast to coast and you call us radical?

Just shut up.

Who is the biggest threat to our constitutional order? It is not President Trump.

UPDATE: Scott Walker negotiated a Plan B just in case he lost re-election. 

Editorial: Robin Vos and Scott Fitzgerald are contemptible liars

It was evident to any honest observer that the company’s promise to develop a manufacturing plant in southeastern Wisconsin that would ultimately employ as many as 13,000 workers represented an absurd and unobtainable promise by a foreign corporation that wanted to get on the good side of Donald Trump before the president started imposing tariffs.

Robin Vos and Scott Fitzgerald
Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, left, and Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald could have made the flawed Foxconn deal better, but they failed to do so. Now they have rightly garnered a “pants-on-fire” rating from PolitiFact for trying to blame someone else for the Foxconn mess. SCOTT BAUER, ASSOCIATED PRESS


Scott Walker loves Ronald Reagan more than seems humanly possible – Vox

Tonette and I host a dinner each year on Reagan’s birthday. We serve his favorite foods — macaroni and cheese casserole, and red, white, and blue Jelly Belly jelly beans — and have musicians perform patriotic songs and Irish music. It is a wonderful evening, and serves as a reminder for me each year to be hopeful and optimistic just like Ronald Reagan.

It happens to be a dual celebration because President Reagan’s birthday is also our wedding anniversary. Tonette jokes that I never forget our wedding anniversary because it is Reagan’s birthday.

Jeebus. Get a damn hobby.
