Risser Shows His Wrinkles, Snows Owen

There comes a time when being 'old' is not the same as being 'wise.'

Fred Risser, the oldest Lefty in Wisconsin government, has passed that point.

Wisconsin would become one of a handful of states allowing some 17-year-olds to vote in primary elections, under a bill introduced by a Madison lawmaker.

The proposal would allow 17- year-olds who would turn 18 by the date of the general election to vote in the primary.

Freddie says that 'it's good public policy' to let the little darlings participate in 'the whole cycle.' Balderdash. There's a cutoff for everything, and that's the way it is.

HT: Owen, (who is wrong on this one.)
