Quote of the day

In Wisconsin, Republican operatives, frightened perhaps by the coming election, have placed the issues of banning same-sex marriage and the death penalty on the November ballot. The Republican legislative leadership could have tried to pass a death penalty bill if it wanted to, but GOP leaders knew they didn't have the votes.

So why not put these hot potato issues on the November ballot to try to drive up conservative turnout?

Says Sen. Jon Erpenbach, a Democratfrom the Madison area:

"The only thing missing from the ballot this fall is flag desecration and guns. It's the political equivalent of a Hail Mary."
