There has been some talk among the AMPS participants about doing retrospective analyses of the recent election and the press coverage of that election. Watch for those in the coming weeks. Retrospective analyses have their place, but there is something to be said for striking while the iron is hot. The Isthmus retrospective published Thursday is certainly hot, as in “liar, liar pants on fire.” This is long, but I think worth doing.
This is a recent blog that will hopefully become part of a larger movement to save Madison schools. I am glad Thomas J. Mertz took the time to respond point by point to Isthmus’ Fox like reporting. Thomas’ full article is well worth the read. I think Passman lost because of the liberal anti-union vote. Liberals could vote for ‘progressives’ like Winston and Cole while still sticking it to the teachers and MTI.
