Beavis and Butthead run for AG

You'll have to sort out which is which. I can't decide.

JS Politics Watch:
AG candidates have heated exchange
West Allis - A Republican candidate for state attorney general pointedly told his opponent "you suck" during a heated exchange today about the threat of terrorism in Wisconsin.

J.B. Van Hollen, a former federal prosecutor, directed the remark at fellow Republican Paul Bucher during a break in a debate broadcast during Charlie Sykes' show on radio station WTMJ-AM (620) from the Wisconsin State Fair.

Bucher, Waukesha County district attorney, had demanded that Van Hollen apologize for saying earlier in the campaign that terrorists were training and raising funds in Wisconsin.

When Van Hollen tried to explain his position and Bucher interrupted, Van Hollen responded: "Will you ever listen? That's why you suck, Paul, because you only listen to people who agree with you."

The exchange occurred off the air during a commercial break, but Bucher informed listeners as soon as the live on-air debate resumed.

"I don't suck. I resent that," he told Van Hollen. "If we're going to denigrate into that, you go first."
Later in the day, Van Hollen apologized and Bucher accepted.

James Wigderson has wall-to-wall coverage if you really need to know more. And WisPolitics has a good wrapup.

Afterthought:"If we're going to denigrate into that, you go first." Denigrate into that? Did Bucher catch the language problem from Jessica?

NEW SLOGAN: Gretchen Schuldt unveils Bucher's new slogan.

THIS JUST IN: SuckPAC endorses Bucher. Dennis York has details.
