More Sour Grapes

More from Owen Robinson.

I confess that this one makes me the most pessimistic about Wisconsin. When it comes right down to it, I believe that Jim Doyle is fundamentally dishonest. I believe that he is corrupt. And I believe that the evidence of his faulty character is overwhelming. I truly believed that when people were in the ballot box, that they would choose to cleanse their government. Again, I was wrong. I think that the fact that a majority of Wisconsinites were willing to ignore Doyle’s ethical issues speaks poorly about the character of too many Wisconsinites.
This comment seems fairly endemic of conservatives everywhere from what I've read and illustrates what is truly going on here: Conservatives are the ones lacking character. Heck, Tom Reynolds (the most principled guy in the Senate according to Jessica McBride) can't even bring himself to make that concession phone call like well-mannered and gracious opponents do when defeated.

'Well-mannered, principled...'

Like Kate Falk?

You certainly aren't claiming that Doyle made it on charisma...and, like Owen, I do believe that there are ethics problems in the Gov's Office.

But DarthDoyle did win. Let's see what happens next!

Daddio, you can believe all you want. It doesn't change the fact that Doyle has not done anything wrong legally.

Green showed me nothing ... he wouldn't even discuss plans for the future, probably because he never had any.

Falk had every right to consider asking for a recount. Even Van Hollen agreed.

Better DarthDoyle than GreenSlime.

I've been kind of out of touch (be nice) the last few days with chores around the house and helping to finish the second floor addition. So, I have not seen the latest news.

Having said that ... I guess I have to agree that it is time for Falk to concede. If George "Macacca" Allen could do it, so can Falk. She is appearing to be rather petty (though so did Green), and her complaining about monies spent by outside sources to help defeat her is sounding like sour grapes, too.

It's Saturday late afternoon and to my knowledge she STILL has not conceded...

But that tells you a lot about her. Don't want to grind it in, but geez...

As to DarthDoyle: you say he "has not done anything wrong legally."

And Steve Biskupic has been sitting on the results of his ongoing investigation. In other words, no fat ladies have sung....yet.
