Well, it's not perfectly ward by ward, but the Dane County Clerk's Office has election results broken down for all of Dane County. Though some results have several wards lumped together, the numbers at least make the suggestion that Mitt Romney didn't win a single ward in all of Dane County. (Click "votes by precinct" under the summary table)

Why is that significant? Well, for one I think it sticks a knife in the notion that rich people vote for Republicans and poor people vote for Democrats. When you're driving through Fitchburg, Maple Bluff or some of the ritzy developments on the far west side, keep in mind that those people voted for Obama too.

Suck it, Waukesha.

While Mitt Romney is licking his wounds in seclusion, Ann Romney can’t stop crying, according to friends. Unlike most ordinary people, who understand that nothing is promised, Ann Romney believed her husband was destined for greatness.

Oh, man. Even her stable of horses cannot comfort her.

I bet there's a pea under her mattress too.

This belongs over in the Department of Schadenfreude. Ann, for crying out loud, grow up.

Anybody who really WANTS to be FLOTUS needs counseling. It looks like the second toughest job in the world and not fun at all.

The Hispanic American voting population voted for Obama and other Democratic candidates and they are the fasting growing group in the U.S. Tens of thousands turn 18 every month. The GOP is finally getting wise to that fact. Even our own Scott Walker has come to that realization.

Walker wants no state action on immigration
