Just a quick reminder that today is Voting Day and it's time to annoy all your co-workers, neighbors and friends by insisting that they go to the polls....

If you have to.....NAG them to the Polls!

Of course, the "big" race is for Wisconsin Supreme Court. If you think it doesn't matter who gets on the Supreme Court just take a look at what happened yesterday in the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS)

We (progressives) won one and lost one....

In one, the court "punted" on the issue of Habeus Corpus (read about it here)

but the biggie was that they ruled that the EPA does, in fact, have the constitutional authority to regulate emissions. (read that one here)

In Wisconsin we're up against the traditionl "sock-puppet" dance that the GOP is so fond of....WISCONSIN MANUFACTURERS AND COMMERC (WMC) is trying to buy themselves a judge now that they successfully bought themselves an Attorney General. And they're using all the standard GOP tactics that they always use....fear based...so their candidate is "tough on crime", "tough on sex offenders" etc., etc...bs

Russ Feingold is supporting Linda Clifford and has urged many of us to do so also. She is the best choice as far as I can tell. She doesn't come with the ethical baggage that the WMC candidate carries and she has a long and distinguished career as an attorney.
Anyway whatever you do, get out and vote today....
