Tammy “Honey Badger” Baldwin To Curbstomp Democratic Senatorial Opponents

Right now Herb Kohl and Ron Johnson represent Wisconsin in the senate. Kohl has said that he won’t seek re-election and neither will the former Wisconsin senator Russ Feingold. That pretty much makes lesbian Congressional representative Tammy Baldwin a shoe-in for the Democratic senatorial nomination. She has a 16 percent lead over fellow candidate Ron Kind and a 22 percent lead over fellow candidate Steve Kagen. She’s also been fundraising like cray-cray in her bid to become America’s first openly-gay senator, so she’ll probably cinch it. Honey badgerette doesn’t give a shit. She just takes what she wants.

    I think you’re looking for “SHOO-in.” “Shoe-in” doesn’t make any sense.

    A Senate seat well paid for. Heh.

    Tammy Baldwin may have the Democratic Primary locked up, but she’s facing off against a wildly popular former Governor by the name of Tommy Thompson in the General Election. I don’t think she’ll become the next US Senator from Wisconsin. Baldwin is a skilled politician, but too liberal for the state as a whole, and up against a moderate Republican who was a 4-term Governor.

    If she wins, this actually gives us a chance for our first woman and LGBT president.

  • bystander

    Her ability to win a state-wide general election against any republican is highly doubtful.

    @GayGOP Tommy Thompson ain’t exactly Mr. Popularity himself in Wisconsin right now. He’s seen as too liberal by the Tea Party wing of the Republican party. He committed the ultimate apostasy of supporting Obama’s healthcare law. There’s no way the party that elected arch-conservative Scott Walker will ever nominate Thompson.
