Bucher campaign relies on racial fears

Paul Bucher, the Waukesha County DA and state AG wannabe, clearly believes that exploiting racial fears is the ticket to winning at least the GOP nomination, if not the general election.

How else to explain his Willie Horton website trying to scare the bejeesus out of people and make them believe Kathleen Falk, one of his Dem opponents, wants to send big black predators into their neighborhoods to rape and pillage?

Now Bucher's trying to cash in on any anti-immigrant (he prefers to say alien) sentiment that might be out there in the electorate, and he's riding that hard.

Joel McNally, in a Cap Times column, takes a closer look at Bucher's ideas -- and decides that maybe Bucher's the real alien.
