More cogent discussion from the GOP

After a day of Judge Sumi and the other participants having to wade through totally unchartered legal waters, my main response was that the whole episode was an embarrassment to the state.  I was particularly saddened to see how the formerly scrupulously non-partisan LRB had been pressured to bend, if not break, the law. But I'm a moonbat liberal. 

The response of the Dane County GOP?  Well, that was a little different. Incredibly childish, but different.  Make up lies, insult the people of Madison, make fun of their eating habits, and generally cause as much alienation as possible. You can smell the desperation a mile away.

For Immediate Release: Contact: Blake Gober- [email protected]March 30, 2011 Jeff Waksman- [email protected]Republican Party of Dane County Apologizes To Judge SumiThe Republican Party of Dane County sent out a press release on March 29th criticizing Judge Maryann Sumi for holding up the publication of Governor Scott Walker’s collective bargaining reform bill. Upon further reflection we’d like to apologize for not understanding her point ofview. Sure, Governor Walker’s bill is unquestionably constitutional, increases worker’s rights and helps local government balance budgets without having to fire public workers. The Wisconsin state legislature consulted with their non-partisan parliamentarian to make sure that the passage of the bill followed the rules of the Senate and Assembly. But this isn’t about the law, is it?

The Republican Party of Dane County recognizes that Judge Sumi is a leftist living in Dane County. Her friends are leftists living in Dane County. Her son is a left wing activist in Dane County. She goes to cocktail parties held by leftists in Dane County. She shops at organic gourmet food shops run by leftists living in Dane County. If she were to enforce the law of Wisconsin and do what was in the best interest of the people of Wisconsin, she’d be exiled from her lifestyle. She’d lose her friends!

The leadership of the Republican Party of Dane County have all made the choice to stand against the Dane County elite. We accept that Left feels righteous vandalizing our homes and keying our cars. It's only fair. We disagree based upon logic and principle. That is intolerable! We prioritize the Constitution and the well being of the people of Wisconsin over foie gras at cocktail parties. That’s the choice we made. We respect Judge Sumi’s decision to live her lifewith the rich diversity that liberals cherish.
