An important official note to everybody voting on Tuesday in the Wisconsin gubernatorial election:

From Wisconsin Election Protection: We are receiving reports that some clerks are still asking for Voter ID under the guise of "practice." This is NOT OK! There should be NO requests for photo ID from voters! If you see signs, if you are asked for your ID, please notify us IMMEDIATELY. Call our 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683), post here, or tweet us @EPWisco. Be sure to tell us what polling site & where the site is located!!!


The Great Flood

money tsunamiCorporate money is pouring in to the race for Wisconsin's next governor in record amounts, and
70% of Republican Scott Walker's political donations are from out of state. Meanwhile, his opponent, Tom Barrett, is reaping only 30% of his total donations from out of state. That's quite a difference.

Now, factor-in that Walker has about twenty times as much to spend as Barrett and it's crystal clear that an election is being bought, all thanks to the five conservative members of the Supreme Court and their FABULOUS Citizens United decision. (That's sarcasm, by the way. The only thing "fabulous" about it is, well, nothing. Unless you like fascism.)

One more Walker note: The Department of Justice will probably indict Governor Walker on charges of mail or wire fraud after the election, win-or-lose. They can't do it now because such actions are verboten 60 days before an election. These will be serious charges so Wisconsites aren't voting for Scott Walker, they're voting for his second-in-command, Rebecca Kleefisch. This is not an improvement.

As for the presidential race, the Republicans already have about two billion bucks ready to go to promote their little Mormon quisling, most of which comes from billionaires averaging 66 years of age. Each is looking for a payoff that will benefit his business interests, and they will all profit from Romney’s pledge to eliminate inheritance taxes, extend the Bush tax cuts for the super-wealthy— and then slash the top tax rate by another 20 percent.

At least one of them has said they view these cash infusions as an “investment,” plain and simple. In themselves, of course.

So get ready for five months and two billion dollars worth of Kenya, socialism, birth certificates, and guns, 'cause, lord knows, Romney doesn't have anything else to run on.



Mitt Romney Is A Big Fat Liar.

mitt romney liesIn a recent interview with Time Magazine's Mark Halperin, Mitt Romney asked, "Are people happy with the level of foreclosures?"

Awww, he's all concerned for all the poor home-owners out there.


Back in October of 2011 Romney stated: "Don’t try and stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom."

Mitt Romney is a liar. A big fat, liar.
