What she does in the sheets is her buisness I wish I knew more about her real life job expierence I think tommy still gets my vote

Her being a lesbian is not even relevant. Just like it isn't relevant that Romney is a Mormon. How unfortunate that at times we want to be like Jesus and at other times we leave him at home. He or she without sin can cast the first stone.
GearHead October 08, 2012 at 05:15 PM
It certainly is relevant, unless you consider all the out of state contributions she gets from the gay Hollywood crowd to be much about nothing. Pretty sure she won't return those contributions. It is widely known "wink-wink" she is the lesbian gal, except of course on any of her campaign materials.
GearHead October 08, 2012 at 05:18 PM
It would be nice if we knew a little more about her voting record. For example, an "F" rating from the NRA over her complete lack of support of the 2nd amendment.
john October 08, 2012 at 06:39 PM
Gearhead, than according to your skewed logic all those racked polygamist Mormon money than is of course flowing into the Romney campaign fund. There are enough real issues on both sides that the personal lifestyle of any candidate should not be an issue. I for one do not believe that if Romney gets in we will all have to do two year mission work. Just as if Baldwin gets in we won't all have to divorce our opposite sex partner and marry one of the same sex. When you are going to argue a point make sure you have an logical basis for that argument.

So why is the Patch using a picture of Tammy from 1992? Her prom pictures weren't available?

To be fair, back during the blue-fister failed coup of Alberta Darling, Alberta had a more appealing, dated picture of herself for media outlets. Tammy at least looks like a happy libetard here and not the angry man-hater. Looks kill, and this one will kill our economy beyond recognition.

Tammy is the most liberal member of Congress from WI. She is a much more radical extremist than Herb Kohl or Bill Proxmire were. She does not represent the values of most people in Wisconsin. Tommy Thompson does.
Lyle Ruble October 30, 2012 at 12:31 PM
@Keith Best....More GOP talking points. Please leave the political ads to the MSM.
GearHead October 30, 2012 at 12:45 PM
@Lyle: Best is factual. Can't handle it? Conservatives have no problem having their record examined. Liberals run from their own shameful records. Why is that?
Lyle Ruble October 30, 2012 at 01:09 PM
@GearHead...Anyone spouting talking points, right or left, is like tilting at windmills. It means absolutely nothing and has become communications clutter.
Dr. Saul Funkhouser October 30, 2012 at 01:14 PM
Because she still looks feminine in this picture. Like most older bull dykes, they tend to look manly as they age. Hell they look more manly than the average liberal male(Jason Patzfahl and Lyle Ruble come to mind.)
FreeThought Troy October 30, 2012 at 01:54 PM
GearHead - I have been told over and over how money is speech. So your point is gay people can't contribute and "speak?" And what difference does it make if contributors are from Hollywood? Did the amount of out of state money bother you dureing the Recall Elections? Ms. Balwins personal life is just that - personal. If a straight candidate chooses to keep thier families out of their campaigns,that is their right. This whole fixation with a person's sexuality is quite disturbing.
FreeThought Troy October 30, 2012 at 01:56 PM
When did the 2nd Amendment need diffence? Has there been any kind of discussion about gun rights the past four years - even in the face of the mass shootings? The answer is no. The only stance has been, "This isn't the time..." The second amendment is doing just fine.
Keith Best October 30, 2012 at 02:04 PM
@Lyle Ruble, are you trying to deny facts again? SHAME, SHAME, SHAME on you Lyle Ruble.
Michael McClusky October 30, 2012 at 02:44 PM
@Keith Best You're damn right!
