Even us Trump apostates support Tim Michels and Ron Johnson!
Our best wishes to our old boss, Tommy Thompson, age 80, in intensive care at University of Wisconsin Hospital today. UPDATE: Tommy is home today (11-04-22) and feeling fine.
Tim Michels has a sense of humor. I know because his very professional campaign staff pushed Blaska to backdrop (verb, transitive) the Republican candidate for Wisconsin governor at a campaign stop in Middleton, on the outskirts of The Emerald City. May have been his Harley Davidson jacket.
But we RINOs — aside from writing a mean letter to the editor — support Wisconsin’s Republican ticket. We are also thankful that neither Tim Michels nor Ron Johnson has invited Donald Trump into the state to campaign for them. Why re-litigate the past?
Michels was especially outraged that Democrats are alleging his construction company harasses women. In its 62 years, only five complaints out of 8,000 current employees — and not one found to be merited! Would so many work for Michels Construction if it was a bad place to work?
Michels moved up a point to tie Democrat(ic) Gov. Tony Evers, according to the 11-02-22 Marquette Law School Poll, proving that political campaigns are about addition and multiplication, not subtraction and division.
Politically, Wisconsin is purple. But, as Politico notes, it is really sky blue and fire engine red. Tammy Baldwin is as progressive liberal as it gets; Ron Johnson is no Mitt Romney. The best read yet on Wisconsin politics 2022!
“If Wisconsin is one of the nation’s premier political battlegrounds, Sauk County is the battleground within the battleground. …By Election Day, by one estimate, Wisconsinites will have endured some $344-million worth of political advertising, much of which seeks to paint the top candidates on either side as “too extreme” for the state.”— “Life inside WI’s most polarized and predictive county.”
Crazy might win but stupid always loses
Once again, Republican candidates are not responding to the WI State Journal’s election Q & A! Why? The newspaper asks three softball questions, like “Why are you the best candidate?” Prints the first 200 words of gibberish, verbatim. But Republican candidates for legislature cannot answer? What does that tell voters?
→ Hammers are bipartisan: In New Hampshire, Republican Senate candidate Don Bolduc was attacked at a campaign rally.
Democrats are losing! The ‘System’ isn’t working!
“Why do people who don’t like politics hold the fate of the country in their hands?” yet another coastal elitist wails. “Once again, the party that wins the midterms will likely be determined by swing voters … they hold disproportionate power to decide the fate of the country.” The NY Times is all over scuttling the Constitution, abolishing the Senate, and packing the court.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: We would hold Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance in higher esteem if he replied to Donald Trump, on stage, “No, YOU can kiss MY ass!”
