Oh Le Scandale!

Feigned outrage abounds today as it is revealed that the Wisconsin State GOP has conspired to run fake Democratic candidates to primary Dems and buy GOP friends another month to campaign. L'horreur!

Democrats reply with: "Meh."

This type of trickery has gone on for years and is nothing new to anyone who has worked in politics. Dems know how to run a disciplined campaign so fake candidates don't faze them much. The loss of month works both ways.

However what this does do is inform the electorate we like to call "low information voters" how the GOP can't run a straight-up campaign based on issues...and they don't like it much. Party partisans say all is fair, independents see it as desperate fuckery.

Good luck with that.
