Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Kohl the progressive

Sen. Herb Kohl gets flack sometimes for not being more visible on the public stage. He's more of an operator focusing on issues like agriculture and Social Security, but he also serves on the important Judiciary and Appropriations committees.

While I have disagreed with some of Kohl's votes in the past (e.g. the bankruptcy bill), I agree with him most of the time otherwise. I would hardly call Herb a closet Republican, and I'm guessing those on the right would take offense at such a characterization.

Dave Diamond breaks down Kohl's record which shows that our senior senator is more progressive on the issues than many think.
