Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee

A house divided?

More on the potential Lautenschlager vs. Falk matchup for Attorney General.

Jay has a defense of the current AG over at Folkbum's Rambles and Rants. Also, Jason of Dyskeptic Radio says the Democrats shouldn't seek to eat their own.

I respect both their opinions, but I agree with Xoff on this one. It really does come down to electability. As I stated previously, Lautenschlager has done some good things like taking on MMSD, but looking into the future, I see her playing a lot of defense in a general election against the winner of the Republican primary.

This is exactly what I thought, too.

Bar fight at next DL? Hm . . .

Resonable people can disagree on the Peg thing, but remember: "electability" gave us John Kerry.

Yeah, and Peg ran her car off the road drunk and got a DUI... while in office. She should announce she's not running again.

Other than real electabliity and some of the nut jobs out there that would use this office to see that doorways are opened for DOMA, conceal-carry, and a repeal on the death penalty, she did something wrong. She made good on the rest of her term and raised issues but Scott's right, come full-bore election cycle, she may as well have gone off-roading yesterday.

What happened to holding our representatives to a higher standard? Only if they're GOP?

Yeah, the guy who came within a hairsbreadth of unseating an incumbent president during wartime.
