About that GOP budget I signed…

“Wait, you opposed the budget bill I signed?”

Why Twitter Sucks

“PR & Marketing @PfComms. Read my stuff @FwdThinkingPol. I’m on a mission to civilize.” – and also a Cubs fan.

Worst fundraiser ever?

Rep. Robyn Vining (D-Wauwatosa) is having a fundraiser. Somehow we don’t believe the hors d’oeuvres will be particularly memorable. The announcement:

NEW! Rep. Robyn Vining
Spire Fire it Up!, spin class with Robyn
Sunday July 28th, 2 – 3 pm
SPIRE Fitness, 102 N Water St, Unit D, Milwaukee WI
$35 a seat, $50 Spinnin’ Supporter, $75 Spinnin’ Superstar
RSVP to robynforwi@gmail.com

Afterwards, you can enjoy a nice kale shake, because nothing says “social gathering” like smelly body sweat.

Miley, please keep this promise.

Definitely an electoral college problem …in New York

Can we get rid of the “unless” clause?

From The Blaze:

“Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) authored a bill that would pull federal funding for a future World Cup set to be played in the United States, unless the women’s national team starts getting paid the same amount as the men’s team, according to BuzzFeed News.”

We’re for equal funding – $0.00.

Ooh. More “non-partisan” journalism coming

Because nothing says “non-partisan” like having the Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s former communications director Melanie Conklin and Ruth Conniff, the former editor of The Progressive magazine, as editors.

Taking a Chance on Illinois

Meanwhile, our neighbors down south finally had somebody move into the state, Chance the Gator. (Cartoon courtesy of the Illinois Policy Institute.)
