I must say, the American electoral system is archaic and confusing. But over the decades I could count on good white protestants to ascend to the top of the system.

Robb Kahl’s Assembly Bid

Robb Kahl is making a bid for the Wisconsin assembly in the newly restructured 47th district. The move isn’t a shocker, but many were surprised that Kahl is running as a democrat. In Kahl’s time as Monona’s mayor, he worked to avoid saying what ‘party’ he was part of. But many saw him as a […]

City council race veers toward meaningless

The withdrawal of Jeff Wiswell from the city council race (on the heels of Dennis Kugle’s withdrawal) all but makes the upcoming election meaningless.

Super Friendly Horse comes in 3rd in hotly contested school board race

Super Friendly Horse came in 3rd in the recent school board race. According to our friend, Sunny, SFH had two votes, beating out John K. Doe, Mickey Mouse, Sue Manning and Joe Blow. Super Friendly Horse’s two votes weren’t quite enough to win a spot on the school board. Those went to Sue Fox and […]

Mayor-elect Bob Miller announces a ‘Greener, Brighter, Bluer, Liberaler, Democraticer’ Monona

Mayor-elect Bob Miller wasted little time outlining his future agenda for Monona. Standing beside just elected alders Chad Speight and Doug Wood, Miller promised a ‘Greener, Brighter, Bluer, Liberaler, Democraticor’ Monona. “Your worst nightmares have come true!” Miller shouted at a press conference surrounded by cheering supporters, who feasted on foie gras, wine coolers and […]

Miller scores huge win in mayoral race

Bob Miller is da man in Monona. Miller put the hurt on Jeff Wiswell, capturing almost 64% of the vote in today’s election. Over 4,000 ballots were cast.
