Keep the Death Tax Dead

Hat tip and big thanks to Real Debate for creating a petition to keep Wisconsin's death tax dead. Please go sign it, and pass along the link to others. This is one tax that never should have happened in the first place.

Why I'm *NOT* voting for Jim Doyle

Mind you, I have not made a decision as to who I am voting for come November, and I may not have even decided by the time the primaries roll around (which I don't usually vote in, but that's another matter entirely). First off, let me say that I have no problem with Jim Doyle campaigning for Barack Obama. If he campaigned for Hillary, I could deal with that. He's a democrat, they're democrats. Nothing wrong with that. What I have a problem with is Jim Doyle doing so IN KANSAS, ON STATE TIME. As Elliot points out, this is exactly the thing that landed Scott Jensen in hot water. I guess that rule doesn't apply to Uncle Jim...
