"We must not forget not so long ago in the distant past we worked hard to elect President Obama! Things that make you a little perplexed, where is all this disrespect coming from within the party!!!"

Amazingly, the victim is not Justice Anne Walsh Bradley.

Hasn’t taken effect yet. Concealed carry comes of age in November, I think. Besides, you’ve got to pass a course.

This Alderman is certainly operating a “hostile workplace”, methinks.

Oh, wait. You said open carry. Well, I guess there are just some people who don't regard a sidearm as a stylish fashion accessory!

Geez, he could at least have hit her over the head with a pool cue or a bottle. Using his bare hands is so animalistic. ;-)

I read the ‘whole’ article, but I must say, their coverage left out a few of the significant details. Like just about all of them.

I can't find ONE news story that says he's a Dem, although Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca (D, WI) is barking loudly enough, LOL!

0bama supporter.

(To be fair, I think “Racine Alderman” is one of those offices which the locals regard as a de facto Democrat Party job, so it’s theoretically possible that it just didn’t occur to the journalist to mention it.)

“Mr. Fair is being treated fairly,”

Maybe Michael Savage should avoid Racine....

More of the ‘RAT “civility”. Ain’t that hopey changey stuff a biatch? Now we’ve got Piven and Jonesy out there calling for a revolution to throw out the U.S. Constitution. Well, communism never was pretty. It appears we’re going to have to learn that the hard way. It’s too bad.

The article doesn't attribute any political affiliation to the alderman in question. Must be an independent . . .

Since the party affiliation is not in the title or the first paragraph and then multiple times after that, you can assume with 100% confidence he is a Democrat.
