Nice job fellow cheeseheads. Next task is replacing Johnson.

Any ideas who we can run to help flush the tea party turd?

If possible we should avoid a primary.

1. Tellya who I'd really like to see in the Senate (but not much chance)--

Kathleen Vinehout.

My prediction, though, is that the Party Bigshots & Madison Beautiful People will get behind Kathleen Falk & crash & burn with her once again.

But, shit, we've got 4 years to dig up somebody. Ron Kind could maybe do it, although he's far too blue-doggy for me.

4. God, no more Falk. Just can't do it. My entire union begged

union leadership not to back her in the recall and they did. Look where that got us.

2. Agree with JackPine (again). Vinehout would be good. Wish we'd run her against Scooter ...

... in the recall.

I also agree Ron Kind (former really good guy) has become a blue dog. What's up with that?

Primary isn't necessarily a bad thing (sure was in the recall though). Adds to name recognition.

3. I'd take Feingold again, but would like to see him run against Walker in 2014.

I wonder if he would run for Gov if it was a "legitimate" four year election, not a recall. If he won't, we need to get Johnson out and I think Wisconsin realizes how awful and non-representative Johnson is. I hope.

5. My instincts, which seldom fail

(to be wrong), tell me that Russ is permanently out of electoral politics.
