After losing Tuesday’s election battle, the sore loser Left is fighting the peace

Mary Burke’s concession speech Tuesday night was gracious and conciliatory. Too bad many of her supporters could not take a page from it. Worse, many of the supposed deep thinkers in the party — so thoroughly rebuked in Tuesday’s elections — want to double down on demon rum progressivism, the very elixir that doomed so many Democrats.

Scott Walker’s re-election today will crazy up the crazies

Will Scott Walker be elected governor of Wisconsin for the third time in four years? The answer is yes.

Walker will win because The Capital Times poll still shows Burke stubbornly ahead.

But she voted in favor of a 2.4% increase in teacher pay. In other words, she was for the teacher pay hike before she was against the budget that would pay for it.
