Then we received a copy of the Dane County Republicans' press release condemning Judge MaryAnn Sumi for upholding the state's open meetings law. The statement was jaw-droppingly arrogant (and ungrammatical):
For those people that (sic) don't know, the state of Wisconsin has an executive branch, a legislative branch, and a judicial branch. The executive branch has the job of carrying out the laws and setting the agenda for his (sic) administration. The legislative branch has the job of passing laws. And the judicial branch has the job of interpreting and applying the laws and ensuring their constitutionality.But for some unknown reason (probably because Wisconsin Republicans are completely insane), they took down that press release and replaced it with an apology. A nasty, childish apology that incorporates all the GOP's favorite ad hominem attacks. Judge Sumi is elitist, according to Wisconsin Republicans, the party of the congressman who complains about making only $174,000 a year. This is what a Wisconsin Republican apology looks like:
By Judge's Sumi's action today, it is apparent that she has forgotten those roles and she thinks that her job is to be a member of all three branches. The Republican Party of Dane County believes it is time for the judicial branch to stop being judicial activists (sic). If they want to legislate the laws, they need to run for political office not judicial office.
The Republican Party of Dane County recognizes that Judge Sumi is a leftist living in Dane County. Her friends are leftists living in Dane County. Her son is a left wing activist in Dane County. She goes to cocktail parties held by leftists in Dane County. She shops at organic gourmet food shops run by leftists living in Dane County. If she were to enforce the law of Wisconsin and do what was in the best interest of the people of Wisconsin, she’d be exiled from her lifestyle. She’d lose her friends!
The leadership of the Republican Party of Dane County have all made the choice to stand against the Dane County elite. We accept that Left feels righteous vandalizing our homes and keying our cars..."Left feels righteous vandalizing our homes and keying our cars...?" Say what?
Maybe they're not insane. Maybe they're just 9 years old.
