Nick has filled in for the ailing Phel, and serves me up a fat fastball. Get up, get way out of here, and GONE!
The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.
Nick has filled in for the ailing Phel, and serves me up a fat fastball. Get up, get way out of here, and GONE!
Dean has it, so go read and plow through those that have submitted.
Next week, it is going to be at Wigderson Library and Pub.
One more bit of news; the Conservative Cat has taken down his carnival submission form, so you’re down to two ways to submit – e-mail to badgercarnival – at – gmail – dot – com or head to the Blog Carnival submission page.
Elliot has this week’s Carnival of the Badger up over at From Where I Sit.
Dr. Sigmund Fraud sure sounds real.
Josh Shroeder did a bang-up job, but I don’t look much like Robin Leach.
Josh Schroeder is hosting this week’s edition, and he’s actually giving you until 11:59 pm to get your entries in. If you’re reading this, have a Wisconsin blog, and haven’t submitted a post for the carnival, Git-R-Done and e-mail the details (link to the post, the title, and a quick description) to badgercarnival – at – gmail – dot – com , or use the submission form at either Blog Carnival or Conservative Cat.
You don’t want Josh to be hunting you down.
Now how do I get these odd Roman numeral editions to run? First things first, I’d like to thank the 5 people who remembered to actually send submissions.
– Our intrepid Carnival innovator Nick answers a Scott Feldstein guns-or-welfare challenge with a classic Deion Sanders line, “Both, boss”.
– Mike the Ace Reporter from Spring City figures out what the home of the world’s largest 6-pack needs to stop the mysterious drownings.
– Patrick, he of the mean badger on the masthead, points out what happens when a real prosecutor takes over for E. Michael McCann(t).
– Tracy the FRAUD Huntress is surprised that the aforementioned DA managed to charge somebody in the Milwaukee Public Museum meltdown.
Now that we’ve got the good bloggers out of the way, it’s time to be vewy vewy quiet…
…I’m hunting posts. Hehehehehe! If you wanted a different post highlighted, or wanted your own description of the post incorporated, or you think you should’ve been included, you should’ve sent your post in.
– First target – The easily-Changed Aaron, who thinks that everybody else in the Cheddarsphere is dead, but forgot to publicize the funerals.
– Target #2 – The Spotted Chris, who bemoans the Pentagon-ordered demise of tough DIs.
– The 1,000-yard shot – Whether you can read or not, Dennis York’s latest campaign finance screed is must-see blogging.
There went the ammo. I knew I should’ve grabbed the 30-round clip. I’ll leave you with the not-so-official return of All My Packers, The Next Generation.
If you think you can do a better job with the 60th edition, let Nick know. We were within a couple hours of not having a Carnival this week until it fell back on me, and boy does that show.
Get those submissions in to badgercarnival – at – gmail – dot – com by 8 pm. As of 5:45 pm, I only have 3 (including mine), so it’s starting to look a bit thin. Don’t make me hunt you down.
Revisions/extensions (8:24 pm 10/11/2006) – With only 6 submissions, I’m going to have to break out Mr. Tastic’s .22 with the laser scope. Don’t say I didn’t warn you lazy bums.
It’s over at Nick’s new place. Check it out, then volunteer to host a future edition. He only has people for the next 2 weeks, then everything after that is open.
Don’t let the Roman numeral scare you, Brent pulls out a Hans Christian Anderson classic to wrap this week’s Carnival around.
After hemming and hawing over trying to sort this wide-ranging crop of entries (well, at least wide-ranging in topics, some of the fine folks on the other side of the aisle seem to be MIA this week), I decided I don’t do announced themes. So, pull out your favorite beverage, and let’s begin with Brian Fraley and his take on the hyperventilating Milwaukee Journal Sentinel coverage of Martinifest.
Now that you’ve downed your first drink, grab another as Peter deconstructs the latest and most-ambitious moonbat flight; you’ll need it when you see what the folks at United for Peace & Justice want.
While the focus is on the anti-war crowd, James Wigderson has, within his free-form piece on Sen. Herb Kohl, Kohl’s reaction to a bunch of protestors that stormed the stage at one of his rallies. We’ll get back to the tactics of the Left in a bit.
Here’s some advice I really should take to heart before I break out Tony Montana’s little friend – Aaron and Belle give some lethal advice on how to get your posts noticed, at least those posts that aren’t a Carnival one :-)
We get a second dose of Belle as she almost banishes the Blogfather from her blogroll because she disappeared from his, only to discover that Charlie still likes her enough to give her a almost-world-famous Sykes Spike for hosting this week’s Point-Counterpoint on corporate blogging, co-authored by Fred. Well, upon further review, that’s a triple-shot, though 2 of those were with chasers.
Speaking of multiple entries, Fred starts his run by unloading on the Racine and Jefferson County DAs for not charging anybody from Voces de la Frontera for boisterously taking their case against AB69 to the home of state Senator Cathy Stepp. Gee; I wonder where the people that stormed the stage at the Kohl rally up above got the idea they could also get away with it.
He then finishes off his double-bubble by shamelessly plugging his upcoming appearance on Jessica McBride’s radio program Friday. Even though Jessica didn’t send the reason why I let Fred’s plug in, it’s actually the start of a recurring feature on her program to have conservative Wisconsin bloggers in the studio. Just a word of warning; you don’t want me anywhere near a mike connected to a 50,000-watt antenna. Stone-sober, I’m VERY boring, and rip-roaring drunk, I’m merely boring.
Staying with the multiple theme for a while, we have two bloggers, Chip and Patrick, comment on John Gard’s burying of a bill to allow the city of Milwaukee to stop paying some of the fired officers while their appeals are heard. Chip is hopeful that the Milwaukee Police Association will come to some sort of agreement, while Patrick includes a current pic of Gard in his savaging.
How appropriate that bars are where you find double-bubble drink specials; they’re among the places Milwaukee wants to ban smoking. Mike says “The smoking lamp is still lit, but it’s flickering.” as he exposes the push for a statewide ban on smoking, while Elliot reminds us that words have meaning, and says that while you can call Milwaukee many things, you can’t call them “nannies”.
Getting back to the Legislature’s attempt to limit drivers’ licenses to those in the country legally and be in compliance with federal law (which is waiting for Gov. Jim Doyle’s signature), Casper points out the hypocrisy of those that wanted to continue to give law-breaking non-citizens here illegally a privilege while they seek to continue to deny law-abiding citizens a right endorsed by the state Supreme Court.
Brent, next week’s host, has an interesting concept town being developed in Florida by the founder of Domino’s pizza where stores wouldn’t be allowed to sell pornographic magazines, pharmacies wouldn’t carry condoms or birth control pills, and the cable television system wouldn’t carry any X-rated channels. I’m not sure whether it was Thomas Monaghan’s statement that these bans were part of an attempt to create an overtly-traditional Roman Catholic community or the proposal of these bans that tripped the ACLU’s trigger, but they are promising to sue the pants off everybody involved. I bet all those dry counties down South are glad the ACLU wasn’t too active in the early 20th-century when they imposed bans on alcohol sales.
I guess I can forgive Jenna for being a bit late to the party; staying around the Capitol building long enough to catch Terri McCormick’s desperate attempt to differentiate herself from Gard in the 8th Congressional race by introducing an 11th-hour bill to mandate public hearings on every bill assigned to a committee is mentally draining.
Clint gives himself way too little credit; he has a cautionary tale of how those who don’t participate in government screw themselves and their fellow citizens over, especially when that government decides to play psychic.
If you’re wondering where Nick, our Carnival creator and ringmaster, is, he’s nursing various aches and pains after restarting his triathalon training.
Well, that’s it for this sloshed Carnival. As I said before, Brent, Milwaukee’s Layton Park Blogger has it next week, then it bounces to Casper and Cantankerous, the duo behind Ask Me Later and Matt at Know What I Mean?. Beyond that, it’s an open card. Seeing Nick let me host a Carnival, he’ll let you host one too. Just give him a holler over here.
My watch says 19:20, which means there are 40 minutes left until the Carnival ticket window closes. Get them in; I have how below or in the Carnival of the Badger link on the left side of the page. The fastest way now is through e-mailing badgercarnival – at – gmail – dot – com.
So far, I have 6 participants, so it looks like it’s going to be a long night hunting the rest of you down. That’s all right; I’ve got my Mountain Dew and my Louisville Slugger :-)
Revisions/extensions – it is now 20:03, and while the ticket window is officially closed, it’s going to be a long night while I hunt down some of the regulars who seem to have lost their way this week.
Revisions/extensions part 2 – As of 21:06, I’m ALMOST done gathering the posts and a very basic idea of how I want to present them, including a few that came in after the window officially closed. I don’t think I’ll be forced to go through the previous Carnivals or the blogroll with my Louisville Slugger to beat loose some additional posts, but you never know. I still have to try to come up with a theme, so you REAL late stragglers do have a bit of time left.
Revisions/extensions 33 1/3rd – I got everything I’m getting, and am running the submissions through the wringer. I noticed a distinct lack of lefties this week; dunno why :-)
My watch says it’s 12:30, so you have less than a full workday to get your best post(s) of the past week into the Carnival. Remember, you do have 3 ways to get things squared away:
Don’t make me have to hunt down your blog; you might not like the results :-)
Remember, there are 3 easy ways to get your entries in -
They’re due at 2000 hours CST (that’s 8 pm for those that don’t read 24-hour clocks too well) March 1. I hope to be very busy creating the 29th edition (somehow, Lisa lost an “I”; oops). I do have a couple ideas for a theme, but until I hit “Publish”, I reserve the right to change my mind on the theme to fit the (hopefully) numerous and varied entries Nick will be forwarding to me Wednesday night.
The Carnival of the Badger, started up by Nick back in the dog days of August 2005, will be making its 28th weekly appearance at Territorial Pissings. Sometime before 2000 hours (8 pm) Wednesday, February 22, if you’re a part of the Cheddarsphere (for those that haven’t paid attention to either folkbum or Fred, that’s the part of the blogosphere occupied by Wisconsinites), find your best post of the week (or more, though I won’t guarantee that any particular host will include more than 1), and get it in. You even have 3 different ways to do it (make sure you include your blog name, the direct link to your post, and a brief description):
The following week, Nick has somehow seen fit to send the Carnival my way. Hopefully I won’t frag it up too bad. He does have hosts through March 16th, but he’s always looking for more hosts. If you are interested in hosting a future Carnival of the Badger, let him know over here (he also has an e-mail link off of that page if you prefer to keep things private). Let him know your name, blog URL, the week(s) you want, and an e-mail address where he can get the submissions to you.
As for the bad-gas bill raising the price of “everything”, close, but not quite. Fortunately, most delivery trucks use diesel, and the idiots in Madistan haven’t mandated bio-diesel like the moonbats on the other side of the Mississippi/St. Croix, at least not yet. Of course, not many furnace installers/repairmen, pizza delivery guys, and the like use diesel vehicles, so those prices will go up.
