Free Speech Emerges!


By the reporting, it seems that Doyle handled this as best he could (that's my positive comment about Diamond Jim for the year.)

A group of unidentified protesters disrupted a news conference Friday by Gov. Jim Doyle, drowning out some of his comments on an E. coli outbreak and on Zoo Interchange reconstruction.

The protesters, less than a dozen in number, carried homemade signs and at least one megaphone. They arrived at the Watertown Plank Road park-and-ride lot in Wauwatosa before the start of the news conference.

Doyle tried to wait them out, then started and stopped his comments a few times before deciding to ignore the protesters and press on.

The Green campaign stated that they had nothing to do with it.

Doyle's Slimer-in-Chief, however, uses tried-and-true New York campaign tactics:

Doyle campaign spokesman Anson Kaye said he did not buy the Green campaign's denial.

"A handful of goons show up at an event, regurgitating an ad Congressman Green just put up this morning," Kaye said. "It's pretty clear where they came from . . . "

Based on the reporting in the story, I suspect that the Green campaign is telling the truth. In fact, I have my own ideas about the genesis of this group.
