Just a Reminder: Chief Justice Prosser is Up For Reelection On April 5th
— Ace

As the Democrats plan to undo the public will via lawsuit, this vote in the 4-3 conservative majority is crucial.

You can volunteer here. I don't know if you can donate.

Allah's worried. So am I. I'm not in Wisconsin so I don't know -- are conservatives getting mobilized for all of this? I know the left is.

1 Prosser is publicly financed and can't take donations per powerline.

2 Bachman, Palin Overdrive needs to get up there and do some anti-commie campaigning.

The big radio guys need to do live shows up there. Except for Sean Hannity-Ruxpin.

Or Savage. Savage would just tell the friggin meatball story again.

5 If we can win this thing in Wisconsin, we can win everywhere.

The combined stupidity of the courts, anarchists, unions, commies, hippies, Democrats, Hollywood, and the welfare cases are all arrayed against us.

This is the hill to die on. So much enemy money is locked up in this. We can beat them all at once.

8 Only tonight did I finally see an ad negative towards whatserface saying she's so extreme even Odumbo would't appoint her to a major judicial seat. I normally don't vote in the spring but seeing what lies in the balance, I'm definitely going to cast my vote for Prosser next Tuesday.

14 I've seen lots of pro Prosser ads on television and heard many on the radio as well.  The democrat Kloppenberg (I may have spelled it wrong) has no experience and a terrible resume.  Her supporters put out a really horrible ad trying to connect Prosser to a case of sexual abuse that came before him 30 or so years ago and it was filled with lies and slander.  The sexual abuse victim put out a statement that the ad was full of lies and slander and he asked the supporters to remove the ad but both the supporters and Kloppenberg have refused to do so.  I'm receiving emails about volunteering and reminders to vote.  I'm hopeful the silent majority will rise up again in WI just like we did in November.

15 If Walker and the rest survive this, and the recall efforts fail to recall a single Republican, we will carry Wisconsin in 2012. It means something has finally snapped. It will be interesting to see if a similar phenomenon envelops New Hampshire and Maine. If that is the case, Obama will fail to get reelected. If he loses these three states we are heading for a 300+EV win. We could even lose Virginia and still win at that point. We shall see.

I am really starting to hate the Republican Party.  What a bunch of weakass pantywaists.  I got a phone call the other day from the RNC and John Boehner.  They had a stupid survey, "what was the most important thing:  1.  Stopping the spending, 2. Repealing Healthcare Reform or 3.  Creating jobs."  I said the most important thing is to stop the spending which includes repealing Healthcare Reform and will create jobs.  I told the guy calling, that I wasn't donating a dime to the useless RNC and that I was mad at Boehner and all the other lameass Republicans who are only timidly licking the edges instead of taking a big, giant knife to spending.  I told him that I am donating my money right now, to tsunami relief. and  I'm done with the RNC and that he needed to tell his bosses how disgusted we the people are with them for continuing to placate their Democrat buddies.

24 I live up in northern wis.  people are moving on the recall...the problem is that the unions have the machine and the member lists....the hope is that this doesn't matter, though they are vocal and animated, they are still a minority. Turn out is the whole ballgame. If conservatives sit on their hands like in o8 its over. The BIG over.

I'm really kinda pissed off with the repubs. They had the perfect opportunity to simply re-vote on the original bill the day the fleebaggers got back. End of story..on to more change. They didn't do it and let the left gain momentum aided by the media. They let the Capitol building be occupied and damaged even after live ammunition was found in several places! They seem to be handed sure victory's and they throw them away. If the dems were in the same power position, they would make a game out of shoving every bill up the asses of the repubs and pointing and laughing. What is the matter with these people??
This was a no brainer and they chose to "play nice"..relying on the "fairness" of the court.
dum-de-dum-dum-dum.

Have they learned? Doesn't seem to be.

I so agree.  And if it's close, you know they will cheat--recounts out the ying-yang,  "found ballots", election workers "enhancing" ballots, and dead people, felons, illegal aliens, unregistered, voters and people voting multiple times in multiple precincts. 

This is it.  We either win this, or we go down in flames.  I have a really bad feeling about it all.

Posted by: runningrn at March 29, 2011 03:26 PM (ihSHD)

28 The state Department of Justice tried to halt the hearing in Sumi's court, saying the law is now in effect and legislators are immune from civil proceedings. But Sumi said the case must continue for now.

"I think the court has a duty to proceed at this point," she said.

Also Tuesday, the judge ordered the state to provide Democrat La Follette with independent attorneys because he disagrees with the Department of Justice on key issues.

"There is so great a divergence now between the position that the attorney general is taking in this court and the Court of Appeals and now the Supreme Court and the interests of the secretary of state and the office of the secretary of state that I believe Mr. La Follette is entitled to independent counsel at the expense of the state," Sumi said.




There's nothing quite like an impartial judge, is there?

That's important. Or Medicare. We can't have poor people dying in the streets! Or education, because if we go back to 1990's spending levels our children won't learn anything. Or the environment, because we'll all die of global warming. Or public employee salaries, because they work so hard for us! Or defense, because the terrorists will win. Or science funding, because private industry has never invented anything without government help. Ask Joe Biden. But hey, maybe we can cut the foreign aid budget. Maybe. We'll sleep on it, let you know in the morning.

Gibbs said the achievement was "putting what was broken back together and getting our troops home, which we intend to do in August of this year."

A reporter pointed out that the Status of Forces Agreement to bring troops home was signed before the president took office.

Gibbs called that agreement "something I think that the political pressure that the president, as a then-candidate, helped to bring about."

52 In their last debate of the campaign, the candidates for a state Supreme Court again accused each other of politicizing the race.

Speaking to the Rotary Club of Milwaukee, Justice David Prosser highlighted several of his decisions that he said had benefited Milwaukee County businesses and taxpayers.

His opponent, Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg, called such statements inappropriate for a judicial contest.

Prosser also called Kloppenburg "a very liberal Democrat who has wandered into supporting Green Party candidates," adding, "I'm in the political center. She's way out on the fringe."

Kloppenburg said her husband had supported a former student who was a Green Party candidate for an Assembly seat in Madison. But she said her work was never influenced by partisan politics.

59 Over at the Daily Caller they had an article about a poll taken in Wisconsin sadly showing way too much support for the unions. http://tinyurl.com/4cos3wl The article is all worth reading, but near the end is: "Our research revealed that Wisconsin voters lacked important, basic facts about the current situation, such as the five-fold disparity in health care contributions between Wisconsin state employees and the national average. Even those respondents who supported Governor Walker wrongly believed that government worker benefits are lower than that of private union workers. Wisconsin voters revealed basic misunderstandings on numerous issues, including how much government union members and taxpayers have been contributing to union pensions, what the fiscal situation in Wisconsin is, how collective bargaining is, or isnÂ’t, done elsewhere, and how dues are collected and used. Building an understanding of these fundamental policy issues is key to building support for reform." We need just get the facts out. If that means door-to-door so be it. (Sorry, I'm like 1500 miles away, to my great regret.) The GOP should be buying ad time like it's the end of the world, but we all know what to expect there. Certainly just getting the basics out in addition to the "cycle of corruption" argument should get voters headed our way.

64 Prosser should be ok. This Kloppenberg woman is a lawyer for the DNR, probably the most hated organization in Wis. They have her e-mails bragging about putting an 80 yr. old man in jail because he would plant what she told him to on his farm. But it's not going to be easy. Prosser did win the primary with 55% in a 4-way race .But if he does lose,  turn out the lights in Wis. The state is on the edge of becoming a third world shithole like Michigan, and if the donks think they can stop Walker with the courts, it is over. This is a great state with great people in it, but the commies in the last month have ruined our reputation beyond repair. I go on blogs now and what others say about this beautiful state and its people really hurts. If this country breaks down into civil war, it will probably start here. There is a lot of anger here and it's not going to take a lot to start the fire.

I don't live in WI but I've seen the ad. It's the kind that would be effective if left unchallenged. But I think it can be turned into a liability for Kloppenberg if it is countered that not only is the ad a lie, but that the victim in the case has asked them to stop the ad because it's a lie and they refused.

73 Per a commenter at Althouse, the injunction handed down today by Judge Sumi enjoins only the Secretary of State, Dan LaFollette, from actions related to publishing the bill.  It does not mention the governor by name or enjoin any of his actions.  So I suspect Governor Walker will not reverse his decision to stop withholding the union dues from paychecks, which is really the key point.  All that lovely money, now going to those who earned it rather than union bosses....

75 I'm in Appleton, WI and I have heard a lot of pro-Prosser ads on talk radio. Of course that is preaching to the choir for the most part so I don't know how effective they will be. I heard Kloppenberg speak and she has the whiny, liberal sing-song affectation that grates my fucking nerves. I think Prosser will win though, Kloppenberg just comes across as too much of a vapid bitch to take seriously.

76 will black people actually go out to vote on a wed. and in the spring and vote? That is a big chunk of the liberal base and as a group are very uninformed (This is not a knock on black people, just what voting records say).

This is idiotic. As I mentioned before, all Walker had to do was to reintroduce the original bill and vote on it the day 1 dem got back.....done deal..no controversy..move on to voter id..right to work..concealed carry..etc. And the repubs SAT ON THEIR FUCKIN ASSES PLAYING NICE!!

$3M has been spent by the unions and, late in the game, $3M by conservative groups. Internal polling shows a dead heat with perhaps a slight edge to Kloppenburg. This is anyone's race.

Remember, the most effective argument is that Kloppenburg has never been a judge, was passed over by the previous Dem administration and Obama for a judgeship, and is the current prosecuting attorney for the hugely unpopular Dept of Natural Resources.

99 Vicki McKenna was all over Kloppenberg this week, particularly after the "debate" where Prosser brought up the lousy ad and pointed out that the victim in the case had asked that the ad be pulled because of all the lies, and she just said that the people who ran the ad had every right to do so because of their first amendment rights. Not, gee, you are so right, that ad is full of lies and I denounce it, but, they have first amendment rights. In other words, she can't win without the attack ad, so even with the outright lies, she is good with it.

I think word is out to those who are willing to listen and vote. The question is will enough of them show up. Generally, they do.

Replacing the most liberal appropriators might be a good start. After all, they are the ones mostly responsible for causing problems from the get-go. They want their money, they pitched a hissy-fit over even cutting $32B, and they've been whining about budget cuts ever since. This same group is the one already cowering in fear over entitlement reform.

Next, focus on replacing a number of the Democrats in the Senate with more conservative Republicans. Given the mindset of Reid & co., it has been and will be difficult to pass anything meaningful, but a gain of the Senate in 2012 combined with winning the White House would be meaningful.

Paul Krugman was in the newspaper this morning, going on about some Republicans wanting to see some email records of a lefty activist professor at the U of Wisconsin.  No mention of why, of course, but I bet you a dollar to a doughnut it's about threats said prof may have made, or been involving in helping to organize or target.

Krugman just lets the reader assume it is just because Republicans are evil.  Since there has never been any mention of the threats from the Unions / Leftists / Dems, who's to even suspect?  What is the probability that an NYT reader will read about Republicans supoenaing emails, and ask themselves "I wonder why?"?  Hahaha, sometimes I just crack myself up.

Is this the real reason for the NYT firewall?  It lets them service their liberal base's propaganda needs as slavishly and dishonestly as they want, with far fewer conservative bloggers willing to pay to link to the propaganda and spread it around on the internet.  Same value proposition as NPR - want to hear no evil ever, ever, ever about liberals like yourself?  Don't touch that dial!

I appreciate it if the Republicans have been doing things on the local level, but if Wisconsin is like every single other state in the Union, its residents still get a large portion of the political updates from the national news . . . which means you know exactly how it's going (and which gets at Ann Coulter's point earlier).

They've fostered envy and hatred among the ranks of these people for years, and now the monster has legs.

126 Soap, don't get me wrong.  I do what I can.  I'm active in my local Tea Party groups (we have one for the city and I'm active in my county and the neighboring county as well).  I vote, I write my Congresscritters and I inform everyone around me as well as I can about what is going on.

I'm lucky enough to be in a state that still believes in Constitutional rule.  It's when I look at other places in the country and hear the stupidity coming out of people's mouths that I have a tendency to become discouraged.  The stupidity and gullibility seems so strong in a majority of folks, sometimes it makes me feel helpless.

127 I'm in Milwaukee. In my neighborhood, I see a lot of Kloppenberg signs. However, over the weekend I paid a visit to the southern suburbs of Milwaukee County (Franklin and Oak Creek) and I saw many more Prosser signs there. Since I live in what is probably the second most lefty area of the state outside of Madison, I'm hoping it's an outlier and the rest of Wisconsin is closer to Oak Creek and Franklin. This gives me some hope: Scott Walker's old job as Milwaukee County Exec is up for grabs and the Dem candidate, Chris Abele, is a joke. A trust fund baby who has never held a real job before, Abele's chief accomplishments in life have been racking up zillions of parking tickets and a DUI. An obvious scofflaw and dilettante, Abele is opposed by a Republican, Jeff Stone, with solid achievements. Some people will vote for Abele just because they identify Stone with Walker, but I doubt very much if black voters are going to turn out in big numbers for limo lib Abele. And I can count the number of blacks I've seen protesting in Madison on the fingers of 1 hand - it's strictly the lily white libs who are having the hissy fits. Usually Milwaukee County and Dade County votes are heavily Democratic and in close elections, they pull the whole state leftward. However, if the turnout in Milwaukee is low because blacks and Hispanics are unexcited by any of the candidates, the conservative counties of Ozaukee, Jefferson and Waukesha might cancel out the Dade County and Madison votes. I really have no feel for what the folks up in northern Wisconsin will do though. And yeah, I am going to call that number and volunteer. This whole thing is keeping me up nights.
