Democrats married an idiot!

But he’s woke as an espresso grande!

Someone posted a photo this morning of a grey fox in front of West high school. Know what’s an even more rare sight in Madison? A Ron Johnson lawn sign! Saw one just this morning — but it’s in front of Stately Blaska Manor, so it was hard to miss.

Got to feel Madison’s dobber is down today, the day after the release of the Marquette Law School poll. The Global Economy website measures something called the Happiness Quotient. (What’s in the water in Finland?) The gray labcoats at the Werkes suspect the happiness quotient here in the Emerald City crashed like that NASA rocket into the asteroid after the Marquette poll showed Mandela Barnes’ advantage over Ron Johnson evaporating in just two months. In August, the Democrat(ic) challenger had a 7-point lead over Sen. Johnson. Two months later, Barnes is down 6 points with less than four weeks until voting ends November 8.

Which puts us in mind of Gunther Toody’s wife on that classic TV sitcom, Car 54, Where Are You? In desperation, Lucille Toody (the great Beatrice Pons) would throw open the window sash and yell out to the entire neighborhood:

I married an idiot!

Ooh! Ooh!

Former mayor Dave Cieslewicz threw open the sash on his blog today and yelled, Why am I still a Democrat?

“Why did Democrats nominate a hard-left candidate in a right-center state?” Cieslewicz fumes. Because you went to bed with idiots, Dave. Indeed, Marquette pollsters find that only 24% of Wisconsin’s registered voters describe themselves as liberal or very liberal while 41% are conservative or very conservative. Almost a third say they are moderate. 

“That’s a picture of a center-right state,” Cieslewicz grouses, “yet Democrats nominated Barnes, the most outspoken liberal candidate in the primary field.

Too late now but “Democrats must move to the center on cultural issues,” Ruy Teixeira advises.

“This is not optional. … The sad fact is that the cultural left in and around the Democratic party has managed to associate the party with a series of views on crime, immigration, policing, free speech, and of course race and gender that are quite far from those of the median voter. These unpopular views are further amplified by Democratic-leaning media and nonprofits, as well as within the Democratic party infrastructure itself, all of which are thoroughly dominated by the cultural left.”

— Ruy Teixeira at The Liberal Patriot.

Like that virtue-signaling idiot who tried to resurrect the discredited Willie Horton race card against Ron Johnson in Sunday’s WI State Journal. (“Are we not supposed to fear crime?“) 

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Wisconsin Democrats could do worse than persuade Cieslewicz to be their party chairman instead of Ben Wikler, who likely cleared the field for Barnes. While with, Wikler encouraged Elizabeth Warren to run for President.

Need we say more?

    It would be suicide to put any trump or Ron Johnson signs in your yard in madison. The quiet and gentle souls on the left would again break windows and torch your residence just to feel good about their lives. Why u see so many Mandela and Tony signs. But, the Biden/Harris signs disappeared though. Big embarrassment there.

      Well it’s been 2 years so no surprise the Biden/Harris signs are down. I’ve yet to see any on the left be embarrassed by either one. Same for BLM. The grift has been exposed but the left still adores them. Plenty of those weathered signs still up throughout Madison.

        And most if not all of those signs are in lily-white, affluent neighborhoods. The bigger the house the more likely it will sport a BLM sign on a yard tended by little brown men.

    We have a Ron Johnson sign, and we live in Madison


  3. That’s what happens when you cast every election as the “most important in our lifetime,” and simultaneously look at each race as all or nothing.

    And in a strange way, the media’s 2-year war on RoJo is to blame. For 24 months the media, in co-ordination with tens of millions of dollars in Johnson attack ads, painted RoJo as wrong on every single issue. Who else are you going to put up to run against a guy like that, except somebody who is the exact opposite? But they never stopped to consider if the majority of voters actually wanted RoJo’s opposite. They didn’t and they don’t.

    You could read the incredulity in the headline of the Wisconsin State Journal story by Mitchell Schmidt and Alexander Shur: “Johnson Ahead of Barnes” should have been “Johnson Ahead of Barnes!!??? WTF?” They can’t believe their months long campaign to never miss an opportunity to trash Johnson, hasn’t damaged him. Just for good measure Shur had another slam on him in a different story.

      Bravo Indigo November Golf Oscar!

      They just can’t help it, despicable Lefty simply cannot resist their legendary weakness to arrogance on steroids.

      The same hubristic sense of entitlement b!tchslapped Hillary New Jowls Clinton down the stretch in 2016.

      Quoth she: “Having said all this, ‘WHY AREN’T I 50 POINTS AHEAD?’ you might ask?”

    Let’s hope all those voter who will give Ron a resounding victory in November also cast their votes for Tim Michels. That miserable old scarecrow in the governor’s mansion is every bit as radical as Barnes; it’s only his utter lack of charisma–or even plain old personality–that enables him to come across as less of a threat.

    Not sure of Dave’s fascination with Cheese Whiz. Cheese Dave might be fun to have a beer or 2 with but when you wind up with your pants around your ankles and cheeze whiz drooling down your leg, you know you’ve been had.

    Every laughably dip$#!t idea starts out as a brilliantly designed scheme deftly crafted to herd the eminently herdable Lefty base.

    Wouldn’t you have LUVed to be a fly on the wall when the brainstorming Lefty Mensan Brain Trust conjured up these…um…priorities and, while smugly patting themselves on the back, decided to run ’em up the Commie Flag Pole?

      Don’t forget that these “unpopular views” often originate in the rarefied swamp of academia, where people who couldn’t get a job driving for Uber are holding tenured positions with six-figure salaries (paid for by YOU if they teach at a public university), cheerfully brainwashing impressionable young people with harebrained notions based on race and gender “theory.” And somehow they seem able to ignore the paradox that while promoting Marxist ideas they live in mansions in Shorewood Hills and University Heights like the very haute-bourgeoise who Marx so despised.

    The debate was very entertaining. Am I right?


  8. Bill Cleary says:

    Hey I got an idea, let’s put the next half way shelter for newly released criminals in Maple Bluff or Shorewood Hills or Bishops Bay or University Heights so that those who espouse such liberal ideas can show those of us who are of lower stature the way to true equity and equality.

    Yeah right like that’s going to happen.

    While almost never agreed with Wiggy in his old career, I must admit he hit the nail solidly on the head with this piece. Anyone that would vote for rojo is either the idiot Blaska refers to, or a wanna-be contender for the leader of the next insurrection. And timmy is worse.

    Thank you, Wiggy!!

      Patting a Righty on the head when they confirm your laughable bias?


      Bias makes you stupid; hyper-partisan-bias makes you STUPID_ON_STEROIDS.

      You suffer from hyper-partisan bias.

      Wear a hat, hankdog/old baldy; the sun’s rotting what miniscule gray matter you had to begin with.

      Back to your highfreakin’larious…um…observation, The Gotch’ll see yer…um…Wiggie…and raise you TULSI GABBARD!

    • Mordecai The Red says:

      I recall a recent presidential candidate calling anyone who would vote for her opponent as deplorable, and it not working out so well. Calling anyone who would vote for Johnson an idiot or traitor is a shovelfull from the same manure pile.

      There’s plenty of voters out there that might not like Johnson, but are far more horrified and nauseated at what Barnes represents. Mayor Dave gets it.
