They never stop misleading and/or fantasizing...http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/opinio ... f887a.html
Lots of spring election lessons
Madison really, really, really doesn’t like Gov. Scott Walker (though voters statewide have endorsed the Republican twice in two years).
Everyone already knew Madison was a Democratic and union stronghold where huge protests erupted over Walker’s collective bargaining limits and where reams of residents signed petitions to recall him.
It's not because Walker did anything to deserve his reputation or that actions have consequences, but "Madison really, really, really doesn't like Scott Walker..." because it's a "Democrat and union stronghold (boo, hiss!)." A "Democrat and Union stronghold..." in which many of its leaders, nevertheless, endorsed Walker's appointees.
This is the best one...
But the degree of disdain seemed to reach new and unhealthy heights Tuesday, with Dane County voters taking out their angst on sitting Circuit Court Judge Rebecca St. John — simply because she’d been appointed by Walker. Her opponent, attorney Rhonda Lanford, used the Walker connection to attack St. John during the campaign.
It had nothing to do with the fact that Rhonda Lanford articulated more well thought out positions, seemed more mature, and more judicial rather than reactionary over technical issues like St. John did. Just as WSJ blamed "collective bargaining" for the protests, they single out one item to use as the scapegoat without any commentary on anything else.
Why is it "unhealthy" to oppose anything Walker-related anyway?
St. John lost despite a slew of major endorsements by local liberal leaders. And this is the second time in two years a Walker-appointed judge was booted from the local bench.
Judge Roger Allen — despite lots of support from top liberal leaders — was defeated last year by Ellen Berz, who similarly attacked Allen’s appointment by Walker.
...but, I thought the Madison "Democrat and union stronghold" hated Walker appointees? Hmm...
Of course, it's not Walker's fault he may not appoint judges...
It’s to the point Walker suggested Wednesday he may no longer fill judicial vacancies in Dane County. Staunch partisans in Madison may cheer in response, but the effect will be to leave local courts short-handed.
People with opinions opposite of WSJ's are, "staunch partisans," not thoughtful voters seeking to choose the most qualified person.
