At 11:00, We Find Out Just How Crazy JoAnne Kloppenburg Is
And apparently I may be the only one who might hold Tom Foley — the Wisconsin Liberal Blogosphere’s “Best Legal Mind” with a suspended law license (Just finish you CLE work already and pay your dues pal) — to task for his pledge he’d join the Wisconsin GOP if Kloppenburg files a suit. For the record Tom, most Wisconsin or National Republican Operatives I know couldn’t care less that you’re gay. In fact, if this outing by a left-wing group was correct, the old Oppo Chief at the RNC (before he was sacked in May 2010 for being a complete and utter jerk, or so I’m told) may be gay.
Heck, I don’t care that you’re gay Tom.
Just tend to think you’re a jerk; I’m sure the feeling is mutual
The campaign for state supreme court challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg said she would make an announcement at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday on a possible legal challenge against the results of the state-wide recount in the race for Supreme Court Justice.
She had until the end of Tuesday to decide whether to take legal action after losing the recount to incumbent Justice David Prosser.
Kloppenburg asked for a statewide recount after preliminary figures had her losing to Prosser.
Brian Nemoir, campaign manager for Prosser, says the recount has been an exhaustive process and it’s time to move on.
“If they do file a suit we will fight that suit with all vigor. It’s unnecessary.”
The recount results were certified last week showing Justice Prosser beating challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg by about 7,000 votes.
Sources to 620 WTMJ radio talk show host say Kloppenburg will indeed concede the race. We’ll know at the top of the hour if they are correct.
No doubt Foley’s sighing in relief and hoping that Sykes got it right; no doubt the first time in Foley’s mind.
UPDATE II: Politico is reporting their own sources are confirming the Sykes report.
UPDATE III: Open blog, insert foot.
As Tom has pointed out, I appear to have libeled him. Most likely on the gay comment, and for that I sincerely apologize for. Maybe over the past couple of years of skimming over Tom’s posts on gay marriage and his criticisms of conservative Christians on homosexual issues, I mistook his passion on them as a piss-poor assumption that he was gay himself.
I honestly meant no harm or malice from it.
My mistake, and I apologize for it, as this quote from one of Foley’s own posts, which was passed on to me shows — I am really frickin’ wrong.
I don’t get the obsession with homosexuals, which seems to be a feature of both fundamentalist style Christianity and political conservatism. Personally I don’t think about gay people too often. Christian conservatives will often tell you they aren’t so much concerned with gay people per se, but rather their focus is on “homosexual acts.”
Maybe that’s why I’m not a conservative Christian because, trust me, homosexual acts are about the last things I care to focus on.* It makes little sense to me why self-proclaimed anti-homosexuals would want to focus on homosexual acts because the only people who should be focusing on homosexual acts are, well, homosexuals.
So again, Tom, my sincerest apologizes. I AM AN ASS.
