Manufacturing a Controversy on JB VanHollen

Wonder who was the source of this story?

J.B. Van Hollen says he's a true-blue Republican. But his bridges with the GOP faithful could be smoldering.

Just nine months into his term as the state's attorney general, Van Hollen has taken a number of stances that run counter to traditional Republican philosophy.

He's bagged an investigation into Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle's fundraising. He's issued legal opinions that say Wisconsin's ban on partial-birth abortion is probably toothless and the University of Wisconsin System can legally use race in admissions

So happens that Wisconsin's ban on p-b-a IS toothless, and that per SCOTUS, the UW may use race (inter alia) for admissions.

So those two items are crap.

Personally, I'd love to see DarthDoyle visit Club Waupun for 10-20 plus probation--but that's a matter of law, not personal opinion, too.

Just last month the Justice Department canceled plans for a prayer at a state Capitol service for murder victims after the Freedom From Religion Foundation objected.

Here, JB folded his cards too early. Let Annie sue. The cost burden would be her problem, and the issue wouldn't be settled until 2012, anyway.

Just get the Crime Lab up to speed, and take a hard look at Russ Decker's budget-negotiation tactics, JB. After another 12 months, DarthDoyle's boyzzzz will make another fund-raising mistake, and it will be worth pursuing.
