The race to fill a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court has become a two-ring circus.
Rebecca Bradley, Joann Kloppenberg
On one side we have Republican Rebecca Bradley who today is having to apologize for letters to the editor and a column written 24 years ago.
On the other is Democrat Joann Kloppenberg who stated with utter conviction that Abraham Lincoln owned slaves.
Bradley is apologizing for harsh comments made about gays and the HIV epidemic back in 1992. According to her opponent Kloppenburg, when it comes to the opponents of Democrat candidates, “There is no statute of limitations on hate.”
Of course it is left to a Conservative news site to take notice of Kloppenberg’s ignorance of American History when she lumped the great emancipator in with slave owning presidents, Washington and Jefferson.
My favorite quote from Bradley’s 1992 column called then-President Bill Clinton a ” tree-hugging, baby-killing, pot-smoking, flag-burning, queer-loving, bull-spouting ’60s radical socialist adulterer.”
Judge Bradley certainly demonstrates a better understanding of our Presidents than historical illiterate Kloppenberg.
