Waukesha Carnival – Better late than never edition?

by thoughtfulconservative

Yeah, it was quite a weekend. I lost my internet on Sunday so couldn’t post, or even write it until tonight. I’ve got a busy weekend coming up so next week’s may be late also.

As usual, you can submit a post of your own to the next edition using our this hand submission form. Past posts and future editions can be found on the blog carnival index page.

We’ve got another lengthy one so let’s get started.

On the national front, Shawn Matson has another look at Obama’s potential VPs at The Case for Milwaukee, while silent e gives us two bumper stickers for our amusement. Sancho still believes it’s Obama’s race to lose and tells us why he thinks that at La Raza de Waukesha.

Other postings of national interest find Dad29 notes a possible correlation between the rise in gasoline prices and Alan Greenspan’s money policy. Posting at Rendezvous With Destiny, Troy Fullerton asks Why Are Democrats Doing the Bidding of Hugo Chavez?

Ready for a break? Bryon Houlgrave has some shots that prove spring really is coming.

Next comes state affairs. The Asian Badger dissects strategies of the Center on Wisconsin Strategy and the Wisconsin Council on Children & Families. James Wigderson treats us with the latest installment of his Idiot Politician of the Week. Cindy Kilkenny investigates Kevin Fischer’s vacations at Fairly Conservative.

Taxes done? Feeling pain? David B. Bohl gives us another helpful post with his 5 Ways to Reduce Tax Stress Next Year.

Local news finds the New Berlin bloggers hot and heavy into controversy. Read Matt Thomas, Linda Richter, J. Gravelle (whose two blogs have been added to the blog roll and will no doubt appearing further in this carnival. His April 1 post last year is too funny as is most of his posts), and New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government may have something too.

Kyle Prast at her BrookfieldNOW blog Practically Speaking has notes on the Elmbrook school board meeting on the human growth and development curriculum.

Lisa has reviews the latest comic books at her blog, Sequentially Speaking.

Finally in Waukesha city, Curt Otto, who lives in downtown Waukesha, shares his thoughts on the Harley event. Jeff at Five Points blog defends the city administrator and mayor nelson from what he considers unfair criticisms. Fox Head gives his first thoughts about the potential Waukesha School District referendum.

Spring City Chronicle reflects briefly on floods.

I was going to feature a post on media election spin by Jessica McBride, but I can’t link to the post without permission and probably not too many others could either, so I’ll link to her excellent column in the Waukesha Freeman on Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Dave Umhoefer, whose article, by the way, you can read here.

Wow, that does it for this week. Hopefully, I’ll post the next edition of the carnival on Sunday this week, or, at least, Monday.
