"Because of this primary we are tested and we are ready to take on the liberals in Madison."

Said Mark Scott Walker, after winning the primary here in Wisconsin. He's the GOP candidate for Governor, running against Tom Barrett.
Wisconsin's governorship has been a top target for both parties, with groups aligned with each side running ads to disparage Walker or Barrett. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama, who has helped Barrett raise money, has visited Wisconsin three times since June and is scheduled to hold a Madison rally on Sept. 28.
Calendar marked! Marked and Tommed.

(Back in August, we were admiring Walker's excellent anti-high-speed-rail ad.)

IN THE COMMENTS... Okay, okay, so it's Scott Walker... and my "marked and tommed" joke makes even less sense than originally. I'm bored with the names Mark and Scott.

Good bye Tom. We hardly knew ye. At least you will still have time to work on that awful sewage problem.

Ah another example of Althouse's "intentional, heartfelt distance from politics."

I watched Barett's speech last night. He looked like a poster boy for Tourette's syndrome.

The one plus for Democrats is that Barrett won’t lose due to his association with Obama. He's already DOA.

oops, pursuit of "drollness" gets in the way of accuracy.

Methinks the hostess has been spending too much time in Illinois.

I've heard about Madison being out of touch but this is ridiculous.

Know who won't be at the September event in Madison with President Obama?

Russ Feingold. He'll be in a far distant part of Wisconsin that day; an increasingly usual habit of his during this election cycle.

We should all show up wearing Russ Feingold masks.

You're bored? How do you think they feel?
