Everybody rebounds in time.
HAND-CURATED POSTS FROM THE WISCONSIN BLOGOSPHERE (AND SOMETIMES POINTS BEYOND)
Jason Kidd, retired NBA star and head coach for the Milwaukee Bucks, has listed his Hamptons home in Water Mill, N.Y., for $7.995 million.
Built in 2012, the roughly 7,800-square-foot, transitional-style mansion includes six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a large “man cave” area on the lower level that was recently filled with Kidd’s sports memorabilia, said listing agent Matthew Breitenbach of Corcoran Group Real Estate. “But that’s going with him,” he added.
But if politicians don’t create jobs, then why was it acceptable in 2010 for the Journal Sentinel to endorse Walker in the first place, in part for his jobs promises? It doesn’t add up.
Wisconsin was invited to apply (with the possibility of receiving up to $60 million) along with 34 other states for preschool expansion. Walker blew it off.
Wisconsin is rated the worst state in the nation in the achievement gap of African American children – and Scott Walker didn’t think it was worth his time to apply to expand one of the most effective ways to close that gap. He was too busy campaigning.
So props to aggrieved citizens and environmental group’s which are now asking the feds to intervene following dismissive health and safety enforcement and intentional regulatory withdrawal by Walker’s “chamber-of-commerce” DNR and force Wisconsin to clean up where the mess is pressing and dangerous – – big-dairy manure pollution of drinking water.
When Scott Walker’s county staff members needed to release a statement in 2010 saying they did not engage in campaign activity, who exactly did they ask to approve the language?
Walker’s top campaign aides, naturally.
As someone who observes the justice system on a regular basis, I can tell you that if the “standard” is to fully charge, convict and sentence every criminal to the maximum allowable punishment to be considered “tough on crime”–then there is not a single prosecutor, District Attorney or Judge that is “tough on crime” in Wisconsin. Reduced charges, plea bargains, lenient sentences and “second chances” are common–and pretty much necessary–in today’s legal system.

Unquestionably in the second of only two statewide televised debates that Gov. Scott Walker would agree to, he again underestimated how many vital issues and how much authoritative competence Mary Burke had in her corner as she outmatched him Oct. 17 after roundly beating him, according to news reports on both sides, in the Oct. 9 debate.
I still think Walker won. Debates are often won by the aggressor, and that was clearly Walker. He offered more specifics and was more responsive to his opponent, while Burke mostly stuck to her talking points.
Getting Karl Rove to come in and attack your opponents for dirty tricks annnnnnd vouching for the character of Scott Walker… all in one email?!?
I guess Jack Abramoff wasn’t available.
