Of course they did

It's all totally predictable this morning.

As expected, rogue Dane County judge (pardon the redundancy) Maryann Sumi struck down the budget repair bill in Wisconsin; and

Meanwhile, Brave Sir Mark Dayton vetoed the Voter ID legislation sent to him.

Both of these luminaries were in a position to do this, so they did. As it happens, there are ways around these roadblocks. Here in Minnesota, the Voter ID piece could end up being a constitutional amendment, while in Wisconsin there are multiple remedies available. I would expect these remedies to be implemented, sooner than later.

I could fulminate on these issues at length, but there's no point, really. You've read it before, here and elsewhere. So instead, let's have another open thread. As always, extra credit for those who can work in a song lyric into their comments.

Then I can write a washing bill in Babylonic cuneiform
And tell you ev'ry detail of Caractacus's uniform
In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
I am the very model of a modern Major-General

We need to make a remix for Gov. Dayton!

Well played, Nancy! I love me some Gilbert and Sulivan.
