Justice Delayed in Girl’s Murder

In 1970, 9-year-old Donna Willing was kidnapped, raped and strangled in Milwaukee.

Prediction: Public Sector Strike In WI

by Smitty Reasoning: The Chicago teachers strike is ongoing. Dane County Judge Juan Colas, in the biggest judicial WTF since Justice Roberts let fly with his ObamaCare decision, “returns the law to its status before Walker signed his law in March 2011“ ???

New Democrat Campaign Message: Grandma, Cliff, Some Assembly Required

Members of the Democrat-Media Complex like Charles Pierce of Esquire and James Fallows of the Atlantic are already registering their disdain of Paul Ryan, and the Democrats are busy e-mailing their massive oppo-research PDF dossier to reporters, so the media attacks on Ryan are pre-scripted dictation from the DNC research department. This is predictable, and […]

“This is an emergency post. . . . Mitt Romney must choose Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential nominee, period.” – Robert Stacy McCain, Aug. 4, 2012 Who would have thunk it, huh? Friday night I went to bed early, and Ali Akbar kept calling to tell me the news, but my wife couldn’t […]
