Something to Think About

The statewide left is having a field day (or more or less “The Lie Brothers” of Liebmann & Liebenthal, DPW, and the flailing Neumann Campaign) with the Walker Campaign’s goal of having 250,000 new jobs in Wisconsin over five years.  The same time, none of them seem to have been keyed into the standard Democratic talking point in which passage of health care reform will create 400,000 almost immediately.

Here’s the video of Pelosi pushing it at the Health Care Summit from Thursday.

Other than the Center for American Progress; where the mad scientists who really run the Obama Administration are, I have yet to find one single think tank out in Washington, DC which endorses the Pelosi talking point (Even the union-backed ones are silent on it).  Mind you, if we want to talk about made-up numbers, I seriously think we should start there.

I mean, with 400,000 jobs “almost immediately,” you’d think we’d have an easy thing to gauge there.  Don’t you think?

Kagen’s Back With Health Care Transparency

Good to see the Doctor’s as obsessed with that as he is with tall-tales in a White House bathroom.  Mind you, it’s an idea that’s been around, both sides agree with, and was pushed by the Bush Administration long before Kagen showed up on the political scene.

Now…how about Kagen insisting his brother do it on the Kagen Allergy Clinic website first?

Of course, it would be nice if there was a Kagen Allergy Clinic website again.  That “SiteGround Default Server Page” isn’t very pretty.

Kohl Needs a Hobby to Highlight His Hypocrisy

Remember the disaster which was the Olympics Triplecast in 1992?

Yes, apparently to highlight his importance as a Judiciary subcommittee chairman, Herb Kohl (D-Milwaukee Bucks) wants to haul NBC before his committee to ask them why they don’t offer an online version of it today, as well as a bunch of questions about how NBC handles the broadcast rights for the Olympics they paid billions for from the International Olympic Committee.

Wonder if Jeff Zucker will ask Kohl about the exclusive rights he sells to Fox Sports-Wisconsin and whatever local Milwaukee station airs Bucks games?

No word if Kohl will then work out a deal to put the Bucks on NBC as well.

Well, They Would Know

Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee reports that at the NFL Scouting Combine, Green Bay Packers General Manager Ted Thompson and Head Coach Mike McCarthy were tracked down by a Minnesota Vikings beat writer for the St. Paul Pioneer-Press to ask the pair about what Vikings fans (and thus, the organization) should be doing regarding the annual “Will He / Won’t He” dance with Brett Favre.

When asked by the St. Paul Pioneer Press’ Rick Alonzo if he thought Favre would be back in 2010, Thompson chuckled and said simply, “That’s an interesting question.” When Alonzo followed up by asking if it’s difficult for a team to wait for Favre to make his decision, Thompson smiled and replied, “Really, I mean, I’m sure there are people that would give you an opinion on that. I’m not the one to ask on that.”

Actually, he was precisely the one to ask about that, he just (understandably) wasn’t going there.

McCarthy got a variation on the question when he was asked how the dynamics in the NFC North would change if Favre called it quits.

“I don’t know how it will change the dynamics of the division. Minnesota won the division and they’ll carry that target with them as we go into the season regardless of who their quarterback is,” McCarthy replied. “Really, our focus will be on self-improvement like it is every year in March, April, May, whether that is with our players coming back and spending the extra time with the coaches in the offseason program, whether it’s through signing our free agents back and the draft process. We really stay focused on us, but as far as the division, we’ll watch what goes on and we’ll do our offseason study of our division opponents and we’ll be ready to go.”

McCarthy’s answer could be translated to a simpler: “He’s not on my team anymore, he’s Chilly’s problem.  Go ask him.”

Enter “The Coffee Party”

Interesting human interest story in the Washington Post about a series of progressives fed up about what they call “anti-Obama Tea Parties” and started their own “Coffee Party” in which they vent their frustrations on social media websites like YouTube and Facebook.

Clearly the irony of the “Latte Liberal” nickname is lost on them.
