Laurel Walker, the Journal Sentinel columnist that Jessica McBride keeps trying to have fired or sent to Siberia, to be replaced by McBride's choice, Republican Radio's Jeff Wagner, couldn't resist. Notes Walker:
In the partisan-like non-partisan race for the District 2 Court of Appeals, former prosecutor and now defense attorney Paul Bucher was the main man who went to bat in radio and television ads for fellow Waukesha County attorney William Gleisner of Merton.As a journalism "professor," McBride should know the old adage about not picking fights with people who buy ink by the barrel.
Bucher, a Republican whose last loss was the 2006 primary for attorney general, touted his affinity for Gleisner's "conservative values."
But neither Bucher, nor Gleisner, could deliver.
Gleisner didn't even carry his home county, where Bucher had been district attorney or an assistant for 23 years. Lisa Neubauer of Racine was appointed in January by Gov. Jim Doyle to finish retired Judge Neal Nettesheim's term ending in July. In the race for a full six-year term, she carried Waukesha County with 54% of the vote and the entire district with 63%.
