Why do you want that? I would rather he repented and restored his relationship with his wife.
Waukesha County is still out.
LOVE Nutella!!! Wish I had some right now. So good on gram crackers!
No sale, if we tolerate jerks, like Hopper, than we are no better than the Democrats.
Marital cheaters are tools. Husband or wife, matters not. It’s sleazy.
That's $30 million that Obama won't be getting.
MSNBC is hilarious. They are already charging Waukesha county with fraud and inciting the crowds before the race is over.
That’s exactly what I found! Not great Atkins fare, but this is an emergency.
TUESDAY, AUGUST 16:
SENATE DISTRICT 12:
Democratic incumbent: Senator Jim Holperin of Conover. Elected to Senate in 2008. Elected to Assembly 1982-1992.
Republican challenger: Kim Simac of Eagle River.
SENATE DISTRICT 22:
Democratic incumbent: Senator Robert Wirch of Pleasant Prairie. First elected to Senate in 1996.
Republican challenger: Jonathan Steitz of Pleasant Prairie.
SENATE DISTRICT 30: Democratic Senator Dave Hansen of Green Bay won the recall election on July 19 to retain his seat.
“How many Ds truly at riskI hear Holperin is one...Anybody else..”
Holperin’s seat is the only one the GOP has a shot at.
I don’t care what he does, he put his willie ahead of his state and country.
I love Almond Joys!
Gosh you guys are making me hungry and there is nothing good to eat in this house right now.
How about we hope we win and call a shmuck a shmuck. Like walking and chewing gum, it's not that hard to do.
I’d rather he repented, restored his relationship with his wife, and resigned before the recall election so his personal problem did not ruin his state. He is quite in contrast to his fellow lost cause who lost because he had principles and stuck to them.
If he “repented” you’d let the wife make up her own mind, I hope.
A whole lot of repenting is cheap coin. The wife might demand harder currency.
I agree cheaters are losers. If GOP wants to continue to be the party of family values, unfortunately we have a higher standard to uphold than the Dems (it may be unfair but there voters don’t care about that stuff and our voters do)
Good, that means they think Darling has won.
And we will move Heaven and Earth to take Holperin out next week.
Pubs have held 3, Dems have knocked off Kapanke as expected. Looks like Hopper is going down too. That leaves us with a real cliffhanger in Darling. If she holds, the Pubbies carry the night 4-2. Otherwise the Rats get the senate and a big momentum boost.
Official drink for tonight is chocolate frosting and vodka in a highboy glass, garnished with crushed M&M shells.
Ain't over till the Fat Lady sings - I remember 2000 with Tim Russert and the white board ...
Called it for Gore - then had to revise LATE ...
He looked like he wanted to rip the white board to pieces with his teeth ...
BTW: I will ABSOLUTELY ROTFL if DEMS initiate ANOTHER recall tomorrow for seats they did not win tonite ...
The Waukesha County results (or lack thereof) is odd. In the July 12 election, Menomonee Falls posted results at 9:32 pm.
