Wisconsin Assembly- Republicans go berserk

"This is not a Catholic School, and we are not children, and they are not children." Rep. Sondy Pope-Roberts (D)79th District Wisconsin

Republicans in Wisconsin throw all the gallery visitors out. They reject public viewing of their Wisconsin Assembly meeting.

Good entertainment value, particularly towards the end when Joel Kleefisch loses his stuff completely. (his wife is the current Lt. Governor, who was just petitioned to be recalled)


More on the story of how republicans rushed through a mining bill today.

1. Civil Discord???

Tooth, line and sinker? Are you sure his name is Kleefisch? He sounds like Mr. Malaprop to me.

4. I think she's being pretty charitable with the "we are not children" remark...

...You know where I'm going with this, right?




"We" implies that she's including the Republicans...

5. Democrats calmy, politely rationally making a case for government transparency, followed....

... by a typical Republican incoherent rant.



If someone pushed a police officer as Kleefisch claimed, there would be an arrest record.

6. Typical Faux news crap

Someone out there pushed someone who bumped into me. He doesn't have to be specific or accurate or honest. It is like the Bush people claiming the outgoing Clinton staff removed the 'W' from all the keyboards. Just a bunch of smearing generalizing crap.

This is all an excuse to exclude the public.
