As crappy of a year it was politically in WI, today 2 members of the LGBT community from WI

will take their Congressional oaths of office.

Tammy Baldwin is our newest Senator and Mark Pocan won her seat in Congress.

On Wisconsin!

10. And genuinely wonderful people, as well.

I've hugged them both. I even had a good cry with Tammy.

I'm so proud of them... And of my state for sending them to DC!

7. Unfortunately

 

Glenn Grothman and Ron Johnson channel his spirit, to our deep embarrassment.

8. You just WON'T let me have my moment...

Harumph!!

But you're right, of course. Grothman has the intolerance and Johnson has the ignorance.
