Upstate papers sometimes yield entertaining gems.
Nate Myszka is running a sharp campaign up in Marathon County for the State Assembly, which prompted a letter from a local in the Wausau Daily Herald:
I'm so tired of the nasty presidential political ads. And now we're starting to see the same from some of our local races.Which prompted this in the comments section:
I received an awful letter in the mail the other day from some guy named Nate Myszka. What does a guy his age -- 30 -- know about life? And he has the gall to attack a guy who has worked hard as a farmer and a family man? Not to mention a guy that has done a lot for our area?
Wake up, Mr. Myszka, this is not Washington, D.C. Take your political tricks and go back to where you learned them -- back to Washington. People in Washington are screwing up our way of life. We don't need you bringing those problems here to Wisconsin.
Randy's letter refers to the repubican as a farmer. Ha, Jerry never had more cattle than his wife could take care of. And in fact Jerry's main success is making it to his mid 50s without ever working at a real job.
As for Randy, he should love the way Washington is working, he is one of the local farm welfare kings:
