News from the news tundra

You know what’s interesting? Every day on the way home for work, traffic is thick with cars with Wisconsin license plates. And all over the Twin Cities, people who are, basically, Wisconsinites, have infilitrated the purity of the Gopher State.

And yet, nobody ever seems to talk about Wisconsin politics. Newscasts don’t cover it here, even though “there” is 11 miles away.

Why is that?

Anyway, Strategic Vision is out with a poll that shows Gov. Jim Doyle only slightly ahead of Mark Green.

And maybe that’ll be the headlines …you know…over there, but if you read the poll, you — or at least I — start to see how things don’t always break down Republican vs. Democrat.

Check the top of the poll, down to around question 14. There’s some unpredictable answers there that don’t seem to go with other answers if, indeed, it was reflective only of party.

    As a Wisconsinite myself, all I can say is that Tommy Thompson is most definitely not Presidential material. Of course, in comparison to the current occupant of the White House, I admit he’d be an improvement. Russ Feingold would be a far better one, IMO.

    As for all them cheeseheads coming over to work in the Twin Cities, well, where else do you expect them to live when Lake Elmo and Afton do all they can to exclude working stiffs from living on the Minnesota side of the St. Croix? Just sayin.
