Angry Wisconsin liberals are using the state’s Supreme Court election as a referendum on Gov. Scott Walker and taking aim at expletive-flinging Justice David Prosser. Will this justice be served? Stephen Colbert weighs in on the latest battle in America’s Dairyland in this clip from Wednesday’s “Colbert Report.” —KA

It ain’t only Wisconsin, folks.  If it were, we could

As a life-long (76-years) resident of Wisconsin, I can sincerely say I am ashamed of what has become our present political leadership.

In the past, we have had Lafollette’s, Proxmire, and Fiengold, who all truly represented the values Wisconsin and all Americans should want.

Unfortunately, Wisconsin’s gullible residents tend to be easilly taken-in by the Carnival barker-types such as the late Joe McCarthy and the present Governor Walker, Senator Johnson, and Representative Paul Ryan. They do not represent what the majority of Wisconsin voter’s thought they were voting for. Those voter’s will soon find out that those promises of fiscal responsibility were actually aimed directly at them. They are now awakening to the real world of Republican politics in it’s most vicious form, which is cut from the poor and weak, and give to the rich and strong.
