Shoddy Leadership


Over at Right Wisconsin, I shared my perspective on Jennifer Shilling as a lifelong resident of her district and apparatchik on her opponent’s 2012 campaign:

A passive approach to legislating, a lazy approach to campaigning, and a Madison-radical-lite approach to adversity: that’s Jen Shilling, now a party leader. Will the Shilling Senate be content with sulking? Or will it be the Senate that fled the state?
Republicans win either way.
I suppose I’m irked that a lazy pol who plays dirty made her way to the top, which shouldn’t be any surprise. On second thought, it’s probably a good thing it’s her and not someone remotely competent running the Democrat minority.
Whole thing here.
