Wisconsin was abused again by the Democratic National Committee’s decision to reduce the party’s national convention to the size of a typical Wednesday night softball league tournament. The Democrats actually removed Wisconsin from the logo for the national convention.
We don’t rate a visit from the Democrats’ candidates. We don’t rate a visit from their delegates. We don’t even rate a silhouette on the convention logo.
Because some Democrats don’t want to give the false impression that they were in Wisconsin among the peasants, Wisconsin was removed from the logo.
“There’s nothing Milwaukee about the convention at all,” an anonymous source told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “We got hosed.”
Yes, we were robbed of the chance to show off the jewels of the state and the state’s largest city again. The Milwaukee Bucks, the Milwaukee Brewers and the “I Closed Wolski’s” bumper stickers remain the biggest means of promoting our state.
But there’s good news. Chicago has removed Wisconsin from the mandatory travel quarantine order. Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker can visit his family home here again, and half the population of Lake Geneva can return.
