Republicans, led by Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, have called an extraordinary lame-duck session of the Legislature. The main priority appears to restricting the authority of the newly elected attorney general and governor, who are both Democrats. This is clearly undermining the will of the voters in Wisconsin who voted for split government in the recent midterm election.

The Mouse of Death

[happybirthday]It would behoove the Democrats to recognize that the majority of the popular vote went to the Republicans which is why the GOP controls both houses of the state legislature with 45% of the popular vote because 45% is greater than 50% by my infallible calculations. Which is greater, $45 or $50? $45 because there are more percentage points. We are indeed bemezzled by the meaning of the word majority rule when minority rule is more corrupt and hence more desirable because wee hours of the morning votes to sneak lame-duck legislation is the kind of corruption we need to preserve our democracy in the Moscow.
