Waukesha Carnival 09-28-2008

by thoughtfulconservative

Welcome to this week’s edition.

After this past week’s ups and downs, we could all use some humor. Tim at The Other Side of My Mouth asks “What is a Liberal?” No, you have to go find the answer yourself. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

Welcome back. What? Well, I thought it was funny, but I have a strange sense of humor.

A poke at the right, a poke at the left, fair and balanced this week. So would Obama do anything to get elected? silent e says “Yes,” and provides a picture. Of course, now that even Republicans are saying Palin is not qualified, Obama might not go for that look. I have become convinced that Republicans don’t deserve to rule because they don’t know how. Do you think the Democrats would be doing this stuff?

Well, I better stop that rant and get back to the carnival.

The bailout was big news nationally and it engendered many posts locally. The Asian Badger shared his thoughts about what he thinks the agreement should look like.

Tom Gehl at Brookfield Basics wrote about what he felt were even more basic causes of the financial crisis.

Dad29 considers Rep. Paul Ryan’s plan and sees stuff he likes. He also gives us some things to consider as we consider the bailout.

Huckleberry Dumbell at Spring City Chronicle gives us a segue between the bailout and the first debate when he says,

Two senators more or less will have no effect on the success or failure of the bailout plan. All they do is talk anyway. It is more important that the person who will be the next POTUS be at the debate. If the vote, for some reason, looks like it will go down to two votes (the final vote count is almost always known well before the vote is taken) then they can be in Washington in two hours. I don’t like this move at all, you don’t suspend your campaign less than eight weeks from the finish line.

Speaking of the debate, James Wigderson of Wigderson’s Library & Pub was on UPFRONT with Mike Gousha on Sunday with Renee Crawford of Crawford’s Takes. James shares some behind the scenes stuff. You can see the video here.

Posts concerning Wisconsin news included Linda Richter’s post on Van Hollen’s suit being voter suppression posted at Inside New Berlin and how the issue affects voters in Brookfield as reported by Cindy Kilkenny at Fairly Conservative and The Asian Badger.

Locally, Bryon Houlgrave gives us some photos of local high school girls volleyball and discusses some photo related issues he had to solve to get those shots.

Jeff at Five Points sweeps the streets of Waukesha and gives us his views of local topics.

Fox Head is ceasing posting at his blog although he will still post at Hobo Springs.

And speaking of the Springs, Alexander gives us a heads-up about the Blog ‘n’ Grog coming up at The House of Guiness on September 30. That’s Tuesday. See you there. Bloggers and readers of blogs no matter what their persuasion are welcome.

Curt Otto informs us that “no snakes were harmed” in this post at Maple & Main about the new Wal-Mart that was approved for the corner of Hwy. 59 and west Avenue.

Back to Brookfield, Kyle Prast at Practically Speaking thanked the school board for their action on 4K.

A little bit further afield, JJ Gravelle writes at The Daily Scoff about public school math.

In general topics, Dave at Yorick’s Persiflage ponders politics and the workplace.

Finally, Lisa at Sequentially Speaking updates us on what DC comics is doing to prevent further occurrences of profanity making its way into their comic books.

That’s it for this week. If you’d like to take part, whether you’re a blog reader or a blogger, you can either submit your post using this handy form or by sending the link to me at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com. The only requirement is that the post is by Waukesha bloggers or about Waukesha.
