Baldwin’s Blueprint for Success


Instead, Baldwin, D-Madison, says her resounding re-election victory last fall is a blueprint for other Democrats to win the pivotal swing state of Wisconsin in the 2020 presidential race.

Let’s see… be a gay woman running in a pale blue state in an off-year, wave election. Got it.

    And here I thought it was because she inherited Nobody’s Senator’s seat and did nothing with it.

  2. jjf

    Kevin, Owen’s defining someone by their intersectionality!

    Wait, who ran against Baldwin, and why didn’t more people find that candidate compelling?

  3. Kevin Scheunemann

    She also checks 2 of the intersectional victim boxes.    Lesbian and a woman.

    Now if she “transitioned” to a man and ran for President, she might be the holy grail in the liberal victim heirarchy.    The debate would be though: Can you be a lesbian while transitioning to a man?   That might cast her lesbian vicitm status in doubt…scratch that idea.   Maybe she could go for Native American victim status….ooh, that one has been tried.

  4. jjf

    Wow, Kevin, it’s like you’re obsessed with other people’s sex lives.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    Only when the politicians wear their carnal choices as a source of public pride.

    Personally, she should keep it to herself.

  6. Merlin

    Tammy fails to mention that she had to raise $31.5 million (of which 75% came from sources outside of Wisconsin) and spend all $31.5 million.

    Baldwin’s blueprint contained the inherent advantage of incumbency to outspend her opponent 5:1, an advantage not available to newcomers… female or otherwise.


  7. jjf

    Well, Merlin, I guess that “money is free speech” blade has two edges, hmm?

    Which way do you want it?  Walker can seek outside money, Baldwin’s at fault for doing the same?

    Doesn’t this just become a “You ain’t from around here, are you?” argument, or worse yet, an argument about where someone actually lives, or where their interests might actually lie?

  8. jjf

    Kevin, do you think there would be plenty of conservatives talking about her sexuality even if she didn’t mention it now and then?

  9. Merlin

    There might be more than two edges to your “money is free speech” blade.

    Randy Bryce ran for an open seat, raised $8.6 million (only 3% from Wisconsin sources), outspent his opponent nearly 4:1 and lost by about 12 points. All Randy’s free speech money bought him was a year of celebrity and a pretty good time.

  10. jjf

    No, that’s sounds like two edges to me.

    Bryce clearly had issues.   Steil, all he’s got going for him is that he looks like Ryan and will probably act like Ryan, which is say he’ll probably look the other way, too.

    So who ran against Baldwin and why’d they fail?


  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    Embracing good and abhoring evil is basic in evaluating whether someone has good character.

    If we fail to do that simple evaluation with your vote, you should just stay home.

  12. dad29

    and did nothing with it.

    Other than attacking Catholics, Tammy is extra-good at ducking, weaving, and staying low to the ground.  Her formula begins with being near-invisible on any issue.  It ends there, too.

  13. jjf

    Kevin, you evaluated Trump and found his character acceptable?

    Apart from the parts of her that you think are evil, how do you judge the rest of Baldwin’s character?

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    “Only when the politicians wear their carnal choices as a source of public pride”.

    You mean like 45?

  15. MjM

    Wizard sez: “All Randy’s free speech money bought him was …”

    …. ctching up on delinquent support payments and paying off that 15 year-old debt to his ex-girly.

  16. Kevin Scheunemann


    Trump is not out there telling people to cheat on their spouse. He has not, or does not comment on his relations with his wife.

    Baldwin seems to want special rights and special demand for her carnal choices.

    That is where the problem comes in.

    Baldwin also supports baby killing, which is awful. What about all the future babies who may be gay later in life? Her position Homophobic. Unlike her, I don’t support killing any one who is, or who might be homosexual, for simple carnal choices.

    That is another sign of an awful human being.

  17. Kevin Scheunemann


    I’ll bite. What Trump statement of carnal choices, as public pride, do you want to talk about?

    …and don’t bring the decades old locker room thing, that is hardly a public platform of pride. Their is expectation of privacy, which you like to violate.

  18. jjf

    Nord, get ready for “we’re all flawed” in 3, 2, 1…

  19. MHMaley

    Supporters of a candidate who bragged of Moving on a married women and being able to grab them by their genitals lose all creditibily when it comes to women’s issues .

    “Locker room talk “ would not be the way you would describe similar actions taken against your wife or your daughter .

  20. dad29

    Good to know that women have MHMaley as their spokesman.  Heh.

  21. jjf

    What’s so funny, Dad29?

  22. Kevin Scheunemann


    We did not see any incredulity from Mark about the Lt. Gov of Virginia and his credible rape allegations.


    Trump is not committing ongoing carnal choice bragging in public like Baldwin.

  23. Pat


    Would you provide us an example of Baldwin bragging in public about her having lesbian sex.

  24. Le Roi du Nord


    Why are you so hung up on the carnal choices of others?  Just nosy, or is there more to it?  Wasn’t there a SCOTUS case from TX that more or less said it isn’t anybody elses  business?

  25. dad29

    Kennedy proved for all time that he is insane in that case’s ruling.  But he did NOT say that it’s no one else’s business.

  26. Kevin Scheunemann


    I never see Trump “doing a little dance” to his carnal choices in public.

    Just asking for some decorum.

  27. MjM



  28. Le Roi du Nord


    Does your wife know you watch stuff like this?  Nobody forces anybody to watch, you guys just get a charge out of it.  At least Tammy doesn’t fumble around trying to pay off partners, hire a goober to cut the check, then deny it happened when said goober gets caught.   My apologies to peanuts everywhere.

  29. jjf

    It’s research, Roi!  Kevin’s researching the degenerates!

  30. MjM

    Nort boofs: “Does your wife know you watch stuff like this?”

    So, obviously you watched it too.  Does yours?

    At least Trump doesn’t hang out with bearded ladymen while flapping unbridled saggy titties around on stage.


  31. jjf

    Careful, Mjm, Kevin gets quite agitated at that sort of intersectional hot chat.

    Yeah!  Trump’s a fine specimen of man!  Only hangs out with the best women?

    You do realize you’re not making the right point here?

  32. Le Roi du Nord


    I watched it, as did you, on k’s recommendation.  If he has time to seach the airwaves for something as harmless as that, more power to him.  But your comment makes it sound like you are a little jealous.  The fact that you noticed the unencumbered nature kinda proves the point.  No bother to me..  Nobody forced either of you to look for it, nor watch it.  And nobody in the video encouraged or bragged about assault, unlike your hero…

  33. MHMaley

    Kev , the Lt GOV needs to resign , period
    i don’t remember it being discussed on this board but there you go .

    As for Tammy’s “carnality “ , shouldn’t your Higher Power decide how important that is ?

    That’s the position Evangelicals appear to espouse when confronted with our President ‘s carnality ( denied vociferously until the crooks he surrounded himself corroborated them )

    Forgive and forget if your guy or gal gets you what you want in terms of judges ?

  34. MjM

    Nort skirts: “The fact that you noticed the unencumbered nature kinda proves the point.

    What point would that be?  That Stammerin’ Tammy isn’t afraid to gutter ball with her psycho peeps?  Or that she is a horrible dancer?

    Nort stumbles: “Nobody forced either of you to look for it, nor watch it. ”

    Nor you, hypocrite.

  35. MjM

    Jiffy spits:”You do realize you’re not making the right point here?”

    No, but I am sure that you are quite unaware that 99.999% of what you write on this blog is incoherent gibberish.

  36. dad29

    Just read an essay on the effects of long-term use of marijuana, MjM.  Hmmmm.

  37. Le Roi du Nord


    You are correct, nobody forced me to watch it.  However,  it was recommended by the Chief Hypocrite to make his point.  And if I hadn’t watched it I would be in the same self-imposed world of ignorance as you guys.  And I didn’t make any snarky comments about anyone’s appearance, the company they keep, or the gathering.

    Tammy is gay, big deal.  RoJo is really stupid.  Neither of us can do anything about that until the next time they run for election.  Maybe you “conservatives” could get a better candidate next time.

  38. Kevin Scheunemann


    Well if Tammy Baldwin’s godless, active, carnal choices are no big deal, you can just let go of Trumps carnal choices of the past….no big deal, right?

    Yet you guys keep bringing it up.

  39. MjM

    Nort admits: “You are correct,”

    Excellent. We have thus publicly established ad infinitum your trait of hypocrisy. As far as “Chief”, you, sir, have proven to be the Sitting Bull of hypocrisy.

    Nort twists: “However…”

    Hmmm. Chiding Kevin for taking the time to respond to a request, and proving his assertion, while you take the time to obsess over his every post and watch the proof is different…. how?

    Nort whimpers: “I didn’t make any snarky comments…”

    Well, why would you? Bearded ladymen in pink dresses are your comrades.

    Now do RoJo, hypocrite.

  40. jjf

    MjM says

    At least Trump doesn’t hang out with bearded ladymen while flapping unbridled saggy titties around on stage.

    Don’t be coy, say what you really mean.  Trump is better because he hangs out with what sorts?

    Baldwin is less-than because you don’t like the way her breasts moved?  Post a video of yourself dancing to that tune, and I guess we can compare.

    Here’s a clip of Trump dancing. 

  41. jjf

    Dad29, guess again.  I don’t smoke and might have up to three beers total per month with dinner, haven’t even been anything close to inebriated in almost thirty years, and no, wasn’t an alcoholic before that.  And you?
