Badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger...

Before embarking on this week's carnival you must, must open this website into another browser. It's required background music. Soon I will be petitioning the government to make it Wisconsin's official manic song. The kids at UW-Madison would love it in between detox sessions.

Mushroom, mushroom!

Dad29 takes on Aurora Health Care for their ads for a new Waukesha County hospital.

Marcus Aurelius, the Badger Blogosphere's resident Roman, gets serious with a look at how fast democracy should be implemented in the Middle East.

Lance Burri points out the difference between a politician calling for something and actually doing something about it. As a bonus (Lance must have found that 1up mushroom) things could be worse.

Dean opposed Harriet Miers. He got his wish.

Badger Blues gives us a reason why Democrats should stand up and fight.

Representative Frank Lasee wants a TABOR that really limits government spending.*

On the BorderLine highlights the writings of one of its regular posters.

The Electric Company's Paul Noonan gives us a public service announcement: talk radio yappers might not know what they're talking about when it comes to climate change.

RealDebateWisconsin is also in a giving mood and wants to help us with our junk mail.

SNAKE! OOOHH SNAKE!

State Sen. Chuck Chvala might have lots of time to learn the fine elements of the "Badger Badger Badger" song since he might get some jail time by pleading guilty to two felony charges. Steve at No Runny Eggs reports along with a shot at "Mr. Plea Bargain" E. Michael McCann.

Leaning Blue reports a Hurricane Katrina refugee died in a Red Cross shelter in Milwaukee. It may have been a drug overdose, but the MSM isn't reporting it.

Another item you won't find in the MSM is a proposed rule change at the Wisconsin Board of Veterans Affairs. Bill Christofferson provides some reporting on a bureaurcratic power play.

Random10 listened to John Edwards and found his ideas on fighting poverty lacking.

Robbie Barton found a CNN "story" about President Bush's poll numbers that didn't say anything.

Patrick the Badger Blogger notes that 2,000 American soldiers have died in Iraq for a reason. A good reason.

Bob, the Madison Freedom Fighter [I think Mad City is a lost cause. --ed] offers Cindy Sheehan some practical advice to protect our troops in Iraq.

Badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger...

"To the moon, Alice!" From Sheboygan? Sounds like a Halloween prank, but tee bee points out the state is taking the idea seriously.

Aaron at Subject to Change is looking for a cause "to take on the 'evildoers.'" The weirder the better. How about helping me with the "Badger Badger Badger" song? He's also going to have the good candy for Halloween.

STB sees the bad, tacky, ugly trend of Holloween displays. They're scarier than a snake.

SNAKE! OOOHH SNAKE!

Next week, Patrick hosts the CoB. As for me...

Badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger...

*Oops. Rep. Lasee's submission slipped through the cracks. It's now been added.
