Fraley: Get a New Crystal Ball

Poor Brian Fraley.

He pops up on the WISN Spinzoid show and predicts that the SC race will be extremely tight and that Ziegler might just lose.

THEN he predicts that the Elmbrook referendum will pass--same-o w/Franklin.

He's also thumping Tommy Thompson.

If I were Thompson, I'd call Brian and respectfully request that he thump for someone--anyone--else.

There's a difference between the results of Brian's predictions and the results achieved by candidates he thumps for.

Of course, that's not going to matter to Tommy, who touted how a pair of 'Rat candidates performed in Iowa in defending his Iowa-only stragedy.

From Pug J,

Re: Fraley’s predictions, I know you are playfully tweaking him, so allow me to trot out that old saw from Teddy R,

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat

Be Seeing You

I did however nail the Michael McGee prediction and had for months been saying that I believe the recall was a mistake and would, in the end, leave McGee stronger than ever.

And at least I didn't quote an exit poll:)

Keep on listening!

Yes, it was a deliberate 'tweak' of Brian, who did, after all, actually get into the battle rather than just leaving combox stuff, where I left my predictions.

(I did NOT think the Elmbrook referendum would pass, nor did I think that Clifford would win.)

And Brian was correct on the McGee thing, but since City voters ALSO elected Robert Anderson a zillion times, one expects that.

One notes that Mr. McGee does not bring his act to the heavily-armed suburb of guess as to why...
