cur-mud-geon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner
They never know just what to expect when a call comes in; in the case of the Mequon police officer responding to a domestic disturbance call yesterday, the uncertainty became a known very quickly.
I find myself in a contemplative mood following the election last Tuesday. I was not a Barack Obama fan but he is our president-elect and will guide us, in conjunction with the Congress, over at least the next four years. He is my president-elect and, as he said during his press conference yesterday, "We have only one president at a time." I really want him to be successful!
The voters in Wisconsin have decided that the Democrats are going to run the state for at least two years. They control state government and can, if they choose, push their way past any Republican opposition. That remains to be seen, however I suspect the power vested in the Democrats will be too much for them to resist. Just as there is a 'pent-up demand' in the Democrat majority in Washington, there is also that same force at work in Madison.
Now that the dust of the election returns has begun to settle, the talk of the governance approach of our new president has taken flight. I have read several pieces that discuss this subject and heard several discussions on the same subject. The Wall Street Journal had an excellent editorial today titled Obama's Real Opposition.
