Open Thread

Plenty to talk about, but not much inspiration this morning. Whatcha got?

Scott Walker was on WTMJ this morning with both the morning crew and Charlie Sykes. I'm guessing the WTMJ studios are about as comfortable a spot as can be found for the Governor.

The main topic was increasing manufacturing jobs in WI, and also the cost of the upcoming recall election against the Governor.

Scott Walker expects a recall election, and predicted between 600,000 and 700,000 collected signatures to recall him. He was quite matter of fact about all of it.

Interesting interview.

the Bears lost two more starters for whats left of the season.

how do you explain the Packers loss to a sucky team? or Indys win against any team?

inquiring minds want to know.

Mr. D said...


I explain the Packers loss by saying they didn't play well and that it's exceptionally difficult to recast your offensive line in the middle of a game. And I read today that Kyle Orton is 4-0 against the Packers as a starting quarterback when playing at home -- dude seems to know what to do.

As for Indy, I'd say it's professional pride. They'll still get Andrew Luck, most likely.

Gino said...

yeah, thats another thing... time to break out my Orton jersey for making us bears fans proud.

Pat Shortridge has entered the race for MN GOP chair, and there seems to be a lot of enthusiasm surrounding his candidacy! However, some of our members point out how he was on the Mark Kennedy for Senate staff in 2006. Kennedy lost by 20 points to Amy Klobuchar, thus some folks feel that is a major wrinkle on Shortridge's record

Because '06 was such a banner year for Republicans across the country, right???
