Gwen Moore for ..... Gov?
The Forum is an entertaining show in the same way that "The Shepherd Express" is a news paper.
On today's show while discussing Mary Burke's sluggish campaign for Governor he again floated the idea of Rep. Gwen Moore coming home to Wisconsin to represent the Democrats in the 2014 Governor race. My opinion on that - yes please do. To even sweeten the package Hughes wants her running mate to be non other than Mahlon Mitchell, yes, the same Mahlon Mitchell who lost to Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch in the ill conceived recall election of 2012.
When Gwen Moore was a guest of Sherwin's it was hilarious to her say, my good friend Sherman, throughout the interview. Now Hughes was kind enough to not correct her, but most people do know the name of their good friends or at least would have the common courtesy to know who they are talking to. This is especially true of politicians when talking to media people, but Queen Moore is above all that.
Hughes and I agree on some things like school choice and overcriminalization in the state, but I disagree with his racialist world view and that of many of his guests and callers. Either way spending some time with The Forum is worth your entertainment dollar.
ps - If WNOV really wanted an exciting show they would give an hour to a black conservative.
