Leah Vukmir has gotten herself in another mess of her own making. The career politician who desperately wants to go to Washington …“Career politician”? That would be Tammy Baldwin, would it not? As for Leah Vukmir, she worked more than 20 years as a certified pediatric nurse practitioner, receiving her nursing degree from Marquette University in 1980 and her master’s degree in nursing from UW Madison in 1983. She was only elected to the legislature in 2002, at age 44. O.K., I read the rest of “Vukmir should stop lying about Baldwin’s handling of Kavanaugh’s pick” in, where else, The Capital Times. The lengthy jeremiad never gets around to identifying the supposed lie but we extrapolate that Vukmir charges Baldwin with a knee-jerk rejection. The Capital Times tip toes around that inconvenient truth, disclaiming that “Baldwin examined Kavanaugh’s record and quickly determined she could not support his nomination.” Quickly, indeed! Politifact notes that Baldwin came out against both Kavanaugh and Gorsuch before meeting with them. Three days after Kavanaugh’s nomination was announced, in fact. But she did meet with Obama nominee Merrick Garland. Nonetheless, The Capital Times prostitutes itself saying “Baldwin’s approach to the Kavanugh nomination has been serious and thoughtful.” If you say so.

School’s out for summer!
It’s a festival! Try to have a good time for chrissakes!
Both Friday and Saturday night, officials said there fights broke out in the middle of the annual Sun Prairie sweet corn festival.
Friday night, police said two female juveniles were fighting. As they were fighting, a total of 40 kids were screaming profanities and shouting, but officers were able to remove them from Angell Park.
Then Saturday night, police said an 18-year-old male and a juvenile male started to fight. A juvenile female also got involved. Once they were removed from the park, police said they were disruptive at a nearby McDonalds. Police then made several arrests while attempting to remove the group of 50 kids from the parking lot.
By the end of the night, police said three juveniles were arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, and one female juvenile was arrested for trespassing and resisting arrest.
Officers said they heightened security adding four additional officers, totaling nine officers at the park. More here.
