….9. To my fellow conservatives, it was a great week to be us. But there are no permanent victories in politics and winning is only worthwhile if we make something of it. Expanded school and parental choice. Regulatory reform. An end to crony capitalism. A fresh approach to strengthening our urban areas. More economic freedom.…

Time for Democrats to come to Jesus. Time to grow some moderates instead of trolling for Republican defectors like Dale Schultz. Scott Walker became a political rock star by becoming the only governor to survive a recall. Now he can fill a stadium. He’s on the A-list. Ready for prime time. His election night victory…

That needed colonic will be reinforced by the party’s hemorrhaging nationally. Republicans will get their six and more to take control of the U.S. Senate. No more gridlock, no more Sonia Sotomayors!

Only a wave election with a huge turnout of Democrats can defeat Walker. Via Who Will Win For Governor? – Urban Milwaukee @ Murphy’s Law.
Milwaukee and Dane turnout. Democrats have won these two cities by astronomical vote margins in Obama’s two victories. But Milwaukee in particular has generated smaller turnouts and smaller Democratic margins in mid-term elections. The city of Milwaukee had a turnout of 47% of voting-age citizens in 2010 and 72% in November 2012. Democrats need a…

The Kochs are described by their fans as genuine libertarians, rather than partisan moneybags aimed at electing Republicans who will push a deregulatory, anti-tax agenda that benefits the Kochs’ industrial operations and augments their personal wealth. Yet, their funding network has long bankrolled organizations with anti-libertarian views that work to elect Republican candidates. This includes right-wing religious groups…

Walker has taken on the mien of an above-it-all statesman regarding this entire fracas, yet says he was aware of it months ago (!).
