Well, That's Disappointing

It's tough to lose to a liar when you've seen the lies for what they are.

It's tough to admit that Charlie and WMC are now right, even if it's just in this one way. Wisconsin is a worse place to live today. The Constitution means a little less today. The Corporatists have, for the second race in a row, placed the lesser qualified candidate on the bench.

For the second year in a row we will be treated to the spectacle of a Supreme Court Justice being disciplined for unethical actions. And, for the second year in a row, we'll get to listen to the apologists saying that his transgressions "aren't that bad."

In a race between judges it often comes down to name recognition. After 8 weeks of being told that "Gableman is a snake" and "Gableman is a liar" and "Gabelman is without honor" and "Gableman wouldn't understand the law if you gave him crib notes" and "Gableman kinda cruised over the tough prosecutions," the only name that voters remembered was, well you get the idea.

Congratulations, WMC. You have won the ability to run roughshod over the people of the state of Wisconsin. Congratulations, Justice Gableman. Try to learn just a little something from your betters on the Court before you do anything too stupid.
