Alternate Title: What’s good for the gander is good for the other gander.
You know what else everyone knows? Robin Vos is yet another Wisconsin legislator who has trouble keeping his personal life in line with his political teachings.
Now that Vos has successfully removed Bill Kramer as Majority Leader, it’s time for the good Republicans in the Wisconsin Assembly to finish the job of spring cleaning and send Robin Vos back to the line.
I don’t care how supposedly brilliant a politician that man may be. He’s not clever enough to keep his affair to another past-assembly member private, is he? That makes him not very clever at all. All we have to do is look to past brilliant Wisconsin Republican leadership like Scott Jensen to know that they can fall to the ground very hard.
And yes, I’m well aware that since that brilliant Republican strategist Newt Gingrich went all honey-can-we-have-an-open-marriage on the GOP Family Values doctrine, the battle is long lost. Still, I contend that respect deserves a place in Wisconsin GOP politics, and it is very, very hard for me to respect a WISGOP leader who can’t keep his pants zipped.
So, today I am calling on new GOP voices, very respected voices like my own representative Dale Kooyenga, to call the caucus together again and pledge to finish the job they started.
This is the perfect time for such a task. The new district maps have been drawn and are fully implemented. There is no chance of losing the Republican majorities in the Assembly and the Senate. The Governor’s re-election campaign is not yet at full speed. Do the Governor a favor and clean up the pillars of his party in this state.
Give me a Republican party in Wisconsin that makes me proud. Remove Robin Vos as Assembly Speaker.
