… why are their poll numbers so high?
Madison WI being a polity of political bubble boys, it is possible that the editor emeritus of The Capital Times has not spoken to an actual, knuckle-dragging conservative in almost three years. That would be when his editorial board interviewed Blaska for an endorsement he never expected to get in his heroic run for school board. They didn’t like our platform of restoring discipline in our public schools.
Dave Zweifel is up in the Sunday paper with another op ed that, boiled down, amounts to “Republicans are bad. BAD!” (We hear Dana Carvey imitating George Bush Sr.)
“Only one party turns a vigilante who killed two people … into a folk hero,” Dave indicts. The Werkes counters that only one party extols child rapist Joseph Rosenbaum and his arsonist allies as mostly peaceful racial injustice protestors. Only one party thinks that Gaige Grosskreutz should have been allowed to shoot Rittenhouse. That would be Democrats.
Mr. Zweifel continues his trope: “Only one party … wants to limit access to the ballot.” The Werkes counters only one party wants to bestow the franchise to aliens. (See: Bill de Blasio.) Plus medicaid, plus a check for $450,000. Democrats.
Zweifel: “Only one party rises in defense of parents publicly threatening school boards.” The Werkes: Only one party defends teaching that white kids are guilty of racism, then siccs the FBI on parents if they object: Democrats.
Zweifel: “Only one party has taken to defending book-banning …” The Werkes asks, What books?! Only one party practices cancel culture: erases the name Fredric March, cancels Dr. Seuss, and disinvites Condoleeza Rice from commencement ceremonies. Democrats.
Zweifel: “Only one party refuses to debate voting reform.” The Werkes: Only one party proposes packing the Supreme Court, abolishing the Electoral College (to Wisconsin’s disadvantage), and nationalizing elections.” Democrats.
Zweifel: “Only one party … relies on conspiracy theories.” The Werkes wonders Who promoted the Russian Collusion hoax? Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, and their cheerleaders in the news media, is who.
Zweifel: “Only one party believes elections are a fraud unless the Republican wins.” The Werkes remembers when Democrats smashed windows, harassed Republicans, and assaulted police during Trump’s inauguration. BTW: Stacey Abrams still has not conceded.
Let’s call the roll!
Only one party is defunding the police. Only one party wants cops out of schools, defends Gov. Evers for letting Kenosha burn, wants to end bail and Derail the Jail. Only one side wants to confiscate guns, put boys in the girls’ locker room, spend trillions of dollars on “shovel-ready” boondoggles. It’s not Republicans who are fanning inflation.
Only one side denies parents the right to choose their kids’ schools unless they are wealthy. Who else is dumbing down education, substituting race for behavior, and pulling down statues? Who else lionizes A.O.C. and The Squad, wants to decriminalize crack cocaine but ban gasoline? Who else wants porous borders and plays the race card if you disagree?
All of the above would be Democrats and their knee-jerk mouthpiece, The Capital Times — sometimes in so many words and other times with silent acquiescence. BTW: Milwaukee District Attorney John “low bail” Chisholm is a Democrat, last we checked. The mayors of Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, Ferguson MO, Kenosha and Madison WI — Democrats, all.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: The Werkes has done its fair share criticizing Republicans. Would that The Capital Times show the same intellectual rigor and shovel out its own Augean stables.
Only one party is responsible for the shithole that is Madison, Wisconsin.

Mr. Zweifel was correct about Don Morton! Only thing I miss about the Capital Times is their sports section.
Your article is spot on. Wonder why so many people don’t get it? Keep trying, hopefully will get better in our lifetime.Madison’s problems are spreading across Dane County. Blaska for county executive. I will donate!
Everyone knows what group is always a victim even when victimizing others.
Both parties are owned by that group.

Nice rebuttal, DB.
What planet are these people living on? My God.
“Only one party turns a vigilante who killed two people … into a folk hero,” Dave indicts
The only vigilantes there were the three leftists who attacked Kyle after he shot the child rapist who was trying to murder him.
That was the prosecutor’s justification for why it was legitimate for them to attack Kyle, and why Kyle’s self defense against him wasn’t legitimate: because they were “attacking an active shooter”.
1: 2 minutes of running to turn yourself into the copse nd not shooting anyone, is the exact opposite of an “active shooter”
2: What they were doing was trying to kill Kyle for his “crime” of shooting one of their own thugs.
Which makes them the platonic ideal of “vigilantes”
Mr. Zweifel continues his trope: “Only one party … wants to limit access to the ballot.”
Yes, one Party wants to “limit access to the ballot” to only legal voters, each one only once. The horror!
The other Party wants to destroy any value to voting, by flooding every ballot box with so many illegal votes that no one’s vote actually matters
Zweifel: “Only one party rises in defense of parents publicly threatening school boards.”
Only one Party defines “being upset that the school board is covering up the rape of your daughter” as “publicly threatening school boards”.
And the democrats are most certainly in favor of threatening school boards. That was one of the points of the BLM riots in 2020: threatening any part of the government that opposed their agenda with violence and destruction
Zweifel: “Only one party has taken to defending book-banning …”
Like Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, and To Kill a Mockingbird. That Party is the Democrats
Zweifel: “Only one party refuses to debate voting reform.”
That would be the Democrats, who demand getting their way without any debate allowed.
Zweifel: “Only one party … relies on conspiracy theories.”
Yes, teh democrats, with their Russian Collusion BS
Zweifel: “Only one party believes elections are a fraud unless the Republican wins.”
Nope. We believe elections are fraud when the vote counters exclude poll watchers, and set them where they can’t actually monitor what’s happening. Because the only reason to do that is that you’re violating the law to steal the election.
We believe elections are fraud when the vote counters stop counting election night with thousands of ballots left to count. Because the only reason to do that is you’ve realized you don’t have enough fake ballots to steal the election, and need to make more up before continuing.
We believe elections are fraud when the vote counters “discover” boxes of votes that happen to have a strong Democrat imbalance, just when the vote is looking like it might go to the Republican
