A World Apart—Fortunately

The old saying about Madison being 25 square miles surrounded by reality is true enough as far as it goes. But it’s also a bit misleading, putting a benign face—that of an eccentric oddball who wouldn’t harm a fly—on what happens within Madison and Dane County.

Dane County’s population is at all times eager to unilaterally and overwhelmingly overturn the choices made by the rest of the state.

The latest victim who was thrown on the pyre last Tuesday, was a highly-qualified young judge endorsed by the Democrat sheriff of Dane County and a former Democrat attorney general of Wisconsin. Her sole offense was to have been a Walker appointee. Her hard-core leftist opponent’s only qualification was her signature on the Walker recall petition.

Governor Walker said last week that he might quit making appointments to fill judicial vacancies in Dane County. He reasoned that it’s unfair to ask talented people to put aside their careers, knowing that at the very next election, they’ll be sacrificed to leftist hatred for Walker.

Dane County is no longer the playground of pixilated Liberals we once knew. It’s now a place where hatred seethes just below a usually placid surface. Ask any elected official who’s just trying to do their job.
