For John, BLUF: Sort of like our Attorney General, Martha Coakley, going after Tim Cahill. Nothing to see here; just move along.
George F. Will: "The nastiest political tactic this year", from The Washington Post. It is about the Wisconsin Gubernatorial Race. Incumbent Scott Walker vs challenger Mary Burke.
Gangster government — Michael Barone’s description of using government machinery to punish political opponents or reward supporters — has stained Wisconsin, illustrating this truth: The regulation of campaigns in the name of political hygiene (combating “corruption” or the “appearance” of it) inevitably involves bad laws and bad bureaucracies susceptible to abuse by bad people.There is this from PJ Media.
It could always be worse. Ms Mary Burke could win and the Republicans could unleash the
dogs of warlawyers.
By the way, did someone mention Tail Gunner Joe McCarthy?
