statement on why we MUST get money out of politics. Crickets from Tim Cullen - this is the second time he pulled this stunt. A golden opportunity and he wimps out. No creativity about how to get out in front of the public eye. If theres one thing we should have learned from Der Drumpfenfuhrer, was that publicity can be had without spending $$$$. Age doesnt have anything to do with it.

WTF is wrong with these people. What does money have to do with anything. Feingolds early campaigns were successful bc he painted himself as a smart but friendly underdog operating his campaign from out of his garage. In contrast, his most recent run against whatizface - supposedly he had tons of money - and name recognition - but we heard nary a peep from him. I used to listen to both RW and LW talk radio and did not hear ONE ad. Not one. Heard LOTS of Rojo ads though. Did not hear him as a guest on any program.

We had tons of money for recall election - but where was it? I heard thatNatl Dem party raised tons of money for WI but spent it in other places - any truth to that rumor? Mary Burke had money - but nothing else really going for her, so a lot of good that did.

Have had it with WI Dem party and its apparent inability to start thinking outside the box. Just today I read some article in the local rag saying how we need some kind of mythical non-Madison dem to run for gov, preferably a woman. Hello? ?????? Name of Kathleen Vinehout ring a bell? Woman, rural, state senator? She has been shabbily treated IMHO - dissed and shunned by the Dem establishment who will never forgive her for having the audacity to attempt to represent a "prolife" Catholic rural district as a Dem. As a gov candidate during the recall election, she attempted to moderate her pro-life views as was appropriate for a state-wide office, but not good enough - she still cant get the "emily's list" seal of approval apparently.

This is EXACTLY the kind of person we need IMHO, someone who can bridge differences while at the same time passionately defending core Dem values - SS/Medicare, voting rights, etc. At this point I would vote for a Repub like Dale Schultz over some bland face whose main qualification is they have money.
