Friday morning musings

Judge Kangaroo is holding court again today. It dawned on me last night that the action she could void, if that were what was even before her, is a committee vote, not the Senate vote.

She has no right to step in. Expect her to anyway. This can’t go through the system fast enough in my opinion. I want it done.

Dems say they have signatures to recall Kapanke. Kapanke has always been on the short list of Republicans vulnerable because of their left-leaning districts.

He could go down because of this. Expect it to get very nasty. But also, expect Walker to stay longer than arm’s length from the race.

Dems will get an empty victory, though, as the legislation they hate so desperately will more than likely still be law.

I’m kind of exhausted by all the hate. Instead of making me shy away from the fight it makes me angry. I used to try to see both sides. I really don’t care anymore. I see no problem with winner take all, losers go under the bus.

I hope it’s a very big bus. At least that’s the way I feel right now. Hopefully it won’t last all day.

    What exactly is the purpose of today’s…what do I call it, hearing ?

  3. To pretend the judge is a legislator. 🙂

    I’d love to give you a good answer, but I can’t! In effect, it’s to let the judge rule the law invalid. I have no idea how she’ll legally get there, but you can be she will.

    No, it’s because the Republican leadership violated open meetings laws by holding the committee meeting in which the bill was moved to the floor of the chamber with only 2 hours notice when the law requires 24. That would render the committee meeting invalid, and any subsequent action that the committee took invalid as well.

    As I understand it.

  5. No, Lorax, it does not render the committee meeting invalid. No, the law does not speak to subsequent action.

    The problem is no one is bothering to go to the law. They all infer what they want the law to read.
