In case you have not heard, Scott Walker’s campaign manager, Michael Grebe,  is suing the Madison School District.    Well, Grebe could not sue the district directly, since he does not live here and he is too busy selling off Northern WI.  In order to make the plans work, they had to find a stooge in […]

A shocking possibility, I know….check this Facebook ad I spotted: If you were to click on it, you’d go to a page which includes this YouTube ad, amongst other things: I really hope the Republicans aren’t right on the nominee being decided behind the scenes.
