McBride still whining about Larry Nelson

Jessica McBride, who doesn't live in the city of Waukesha, is somehow convinced that she is smarter than the voters there. She is fixated on the victory of Larry Nelson over Republican state representative Ann Nischke a week ago. This seems to be for two reasons. One, Nelson is a Democrat and, two, McBride is a Republican who can't believe that Republican-leaning Waukesha would vote for an experienced, well-liked and well-connected Democrat who has held non-partisan office for six years in city government.

Today she's at it again, using me as an excuse to pimp her weekend Waukesha Freeman column:
Waukesha's "non partisan" mayor

Yeah, right. Check the photo of him out over at the Leftwing Folkbum Rambles and Rants, at the state Democrats' annual fundraising dinner. Really non partisan, isn't Nelson. [. . .] If he's not partisan, I don't know what is.

My new Freeman column on the topic is up.

So what if Nelson explains his non-partisanship well ("People who know my record know that I have never political party agenda at the local level. The state and national Democrat, Republican stuff really does not enter into it. [. . .] My No. 1 priority is going to be to do what’s best for the city of Waukesha." [via Dean])? Attendance at a Democratic Party fundraiser is evidence of out-of-control partisanship!

After all, McBride idol--and non-partisan Milwaukee County Executive--Scott Walker would never, ever do such a thing.

Except when he does. And often, too. Right, Jessica?
