State Rep. Chris Taylor, D-Madison, has been placed on a list maintained by Capitol Police officers to keep tabs on people participating in the Solidarity Sing Along.

If you let the liberals have sing-a-longs, eventually they'll leave a couple pieces of masking tape on the marble walls and we'll be forced to spend $700,000.00 to restore all the damage.

The GOP bought themselves their own little standing army when they told the police they wouldn't go after their union.

Funny thing is, in a few years they'll go after the police union. The taxpayers will pick up the tab for private security.

People like opportunity and a Government that is willing to invest in the population and the state. Not give billions away to the highest donor and act like drooling retards on social issues. I like Wisconsin, I hope they get their shiat together in the next decade.

The damage figure was $7 million, and it was low-adhesive painter's tape. It eventually turned out that the figure, after having been used in court to justify ousting protestors, literally came from all the authority of a page of loose-leaf paper with "7 million dollars" scribbled onto it.

Welcome to Wississippi.

Not quite, but Walker's misinformation campaign worked on you.

They originally trotted out a number of $7.5 million, and after everybody (rightfully) called bullshiat, they gave their "new estimate". $347,500, and even that might have been too high.

They got a "pants on fire" for it.

Maybe Walker's-former-personal-security-officer-turned-capital-police-chief, David M. Erwin will join the ever growing list of criminals Walker likes to hang out with:

- Tim Russell, a former deputy chief of staff for Walker in his county office, reached a plea deal with prosecutors in a felony embezzlement case. He has a plea hearing set for Thursday. Russell was charged with embezzling more than $20,000 from a veterans group that Walker assigned him to lead.

- Kelly Rindfleisch, another former deputy chief of staff, pleaded guilty to a felony count of misconduct in office after she did campaign work on taxpayers' time. Three similar counts were dismissed. She was sentenced last week to six months in jail.

- Kevin D. Kavanaugh, whom Walker had named to the county Veterans Service Commission, was found guilty last month of stealing more than $51,000 that had been donated to help veterans and their families. He is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 7.

- Darlene Wink, a former Walker aide, pleaded guilty this summer to two misdemeanor charges of working on Walker's gubernatorial campaign on county time. She has a Jan. 10 sentencing hearing.

- William Gardner, president and chief executive officer of Wisconsin & Southern Railroad Co., was sentenced to two years' probation in July after being found guilty of exceeding state campaign donation limits and laundering campaign donations to Walker and other Wisconsin politicians.

- Brian Pierick, Russell's domestic partner, was charged with child enticement, evidence of which was allegedly discovered during the investigation of Russell. Pierick's jury trial is scheduled to start Jan. 29.

My work is desperate for Networking people. Same jobs have been open for over a year. All high level networking and security jobs. Can't even get applications in. According to our HR people, those people with that skill set would rather go to Twin Cities or Chicagoland suburbs than work in Wisconsin. Oh well who needs internet at wo

F you, Scott Walker. I moved my family out of Wisconsin and took a 25K loss on my house just to get out of the wreckage you left. You made it OK for your thugs to carry guns on the floor of the Assembly, thus explicitly threatening the minority. And now you're putting them on Lists. fark, dude. Just take the human suit off and expose your lizard skin so we can find out what kind of alien civilization you are working for.

But enough about Whidbey, let's talk about how Scott Walker is such a giant douchebag that filling him drops the water level in Lake Meade by 50 feet.

Seriously, is there anything about his actions that doesn't scream "horrible, despicable human being and complete scum"?

They actually do a bunch of parodies of songs with the lyrics changed to having to deal with Walker, unions, and labor in general. It's cute the first time but it gets pretty annoying soon thereafter.

Considering how the editor of the Cap Times is already drooling over KEvin Conroy, a guy who isn't crazy about running Link it doesn't bode well for the Democrats in 2014.

Of course if I were Conroy I'd insist Mike Tate and all the senior leadership of the DPW resign so maybe the good ol' boy network of Madison politicians go can away.

The original estimate was scratched down on a piece of paper off the top of some guy's head. It was later revised down to something pathetically small but which still included expenditures for scheduled lawn maintenance. The total cost of the protests (minus police costs, which we are not farking responsible for) was hardly in the tens of thousands of dollars.

I don't know, people are still finding it pretty impossible to come to terms with the fact that the Democrats are varying degrees of failures or liars. We tried to tell everyone that the recall was a farking idiotic strategy, but of course they did it anyway. Then the Democrats followed that up by completely losing every branch of State government last November... oh, but it went for Obama (who absolutely in no way needed the EVs anyway), so we won! This is the Democratic Party.

Yeah, the IWW branch did a protest sing-along because they were watering down a bunch of songs from the Big Red Songbook (i.e. changing lyrics from talking about workers overthrowing capitalism to shiat about... whatever the fark they aspire to. Voting?).

Most of Wisconsin's police unions ended up telling Walker to go fark himself, the only exceptions being the Milwaukee PD and the Wisconsin State Patrol. (the latter agency is primarily concerned with running speedtraps on the Interstate).

What also has to happen is the WisDems have to start liking each other again: not that long ago, Lena Taylor got into some catfight with Sandy Pasch over...something. Add to that the new minority leader taking Taylor off the Joint Finance Committee (igniting once again the old North Side-South Side Milwaukee spat) along with Bob Jauch from waaaaaaay up north and you have a party that is not at all united.

The party could well split into three factions: Milwaukee, Madison, and Everybody Else. And when the going gets tough, Everybody Else will side with Madison. Without a united party with an actual plan, a second Walker term could well be a reality.

That accurately describes what happened in the recall primary. Madison's good-old-boys club was for Falk, Milwaukee's was for Barrett.

Not to be pedantic but Sandy Pasch is WFB/Shorewood, not a southsider. But Lena Taylor does illustrate why something like a quarter to half of all the politicians elected to Madison out here leave after a few terms. They can usually come back here and land a cushy gig with the city/county without having to deal with Madison politicians stonewalling them. You could argue the last Milwaukee Democrat to get anything resembling power in Madison was Gary George (and we all know how that turned out). And you're correct, nobody trusts Milwaukee because if you want to get anything done out here you have to grease the palm of every schmuck in a suit.

Fanlund's piece however was reeking of desperation; and I can't blame him. He's right that few current Democrats in this state have the cache or cash to fight Walker. Outside of Vinehout there's about 3 rural Democrats anyone's even heard of and most of the Madison Democrats are either too old or won't budge from 46-48 points. It's a hell of a spot to be in.

Not at all pedantic, it gave me the chance to remember the name of the South Sider in question, minority leader Chris Larson. Given his recent moves, it may come as no surprise that his most recent leadership position was managing a shoe store. Sorta like Al Bundy
