now this made me mad

I wanted to scan this in myself, but my scanner isn’t working, so here’s the pictures from Daily Kos.  This came to my son, a newly-registered voter.  Note in particular the set up of the outer page where the address occurs, the way the quote is positioned to look like it is coming out of Obama.  Paid for by the Republican Party of Wisconsin it says.

I'm a sociology professor but not only a sociology professor. I keep my name out of this blog because I don't want my name associated with it in a Google search. Although I never write anything in a public forum like a blog that I'd be ashamed to have associated with my name (and you shouldn't either), it is illegal for me to use my position as a public employee to advance my religious or political views, and the pseudonym helps to preserve the distinction between my public and private identities. The pseudonym also helps to protect the people I may write about in describing public or semi-public events I've been involved with.

  1. How is this making anyone mad? I thought the United States were an OECD country with a relatively high level of education. If you think that this mailer is ridiculous beyond saving grace, there is a fair chance that the people who do not share your view represent an infinitesimal fraction of the selectorate. I think this mailer makes an objective statement about the state of affairs within the Republican party — how can unfiltered information on political parties make anyone angry? The mailer is actually very informative from this perspective.

    Unless the US happen to be populated by a vast majority of uneducated morons who feel ready to elect any nutter with a military agenda and a tendency to frame his opponents as gay-loving elistist Muslims, the mailer is good news. I think it is.
