They’re white, they’re male, they’re conservative — call in the SWAT team!

Washington political sources see Ryan bandwagon

Republican national convention turns to Paul Ryan? Two influential Washington political sources now observe what Your Humble Squire has been telling you as far back as November 18. The Hill sees “a brokered convention for Paul Ryan.”

Another political specialty source, Roll Call, on January 3 reports “talk about the Republicans deadlocking in Cleveland come July started more than a month ago. And in recent days, politically smart people at three successive holiday social gatherings have envisioned the same climactic plot twist: The next GOP presidential nominee will be Paul D. Ryan.

“Prepare to be gobsmacked with how much sense that makes.”

Mark Pocan has nothing to say? Huzzah!

Egged on by Wisconsin’s Democratic party establishment, Barack Obama’s Department of Justice combed over Milwaukee’s school voucher program looking for discrimination against special needs students and finds … nothing. Bupkus.

Thanks to RightWisconsin for pointing out the five Democrat(ic) opponents of parental choice, including Dane County’s Sondy Pope-Roberts, Kenosha’s Peter Barca, Chris Larson, and Gwen Moore.

“Most aggressive in the jihad against education reform was U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, who does not even represent Milwaukee. In 2014, Pocan said the complaints the DOJ was looking into were “especially egregious.”

Instead, the DOJ probe found only that that Pocan is especially wrong-headed. But we already knew that.

Fellow wizard Brian Sikma has the quote of the week: “Really want a Republican president for one good reason: So gun prices go down.”

If Brandi Grayson and her group of protesters had taken to protesting on East Washington while visibly carrying weapons I am sure the out come would have been quite different from what is happening in Oregon. Then again, that's the whole point of the Black Lives Matter movement... which I am sure you don't understand at all since your entire blog is based on ignorance of racial disparities in our society. Great job at continuing and proliferating your ignorance.

So Blaska is in favor of allowing arsonists (Hammonds) and tax evaders (Bundy) to walk free. I thought you "conservatives were all about law and order.

Terrorists? Definitely not. Are we expected to just take your word for it? Who's calling them terrorists? Other than some people you saw tweeting about it, that is.

I think the far more apt comparison is the occupy movement, right down to the conservative white males' request that people send them snacks. They're squatting on public land... treat them just how you would the homeless folks camping out at the City County Building.

Moreover, that land is sacred to the Native Americans, from whom it was originally stolen. These ranchers (as if they're actually ranchers and not just jerks with cowboy hats throwing a public tantrum) don't even have the most compelling "we got screwed" argument.

Victim complex is what it is. You're enabling it.

You found the TERRORIST! needle in the commentary haystack. Oh, and you left out "armed" in your description. Keep defending these clowns, Vanilla ISIS, Yokel Harum, Hezbubba, Trailer Daesh. We're all doubled over in laughter. Send snacks!

Nobody is wondering how the Donald is gaining traction. He represents the Republican mindset more than any other candidate. It's not an accident he's running away from the field! Trump is Blaska in a pricier suit!
