Too extreme or not? That is the question

It's only August and already it has become clear what the overriding issue will be in the November election for governor:

Is Mark Green too extreme, or what?

Gov. Jim Doyle's campaign raised the issue in an ad highlighting Green's opposition to stem cell research.

That commercial's been off the air for a week, but today Green unveiled his first commercial -- and it's a response to last week's Doyle ad. It tries to be light=hearted, but the "extreme" tag clearly has stung Green.

That should be good news for Doyle World. Green's starting his TV campaign in a defensive posture, responding to an ad that's already run its course.

If Green's campaign feels it needs to reply, you can bet their polling shows it's done some damage.

For Doyle, this has to be very encouraging. You could even say extremely encouraging.

Typically liberials! You just can not stop lying. Lie, Lie, Lie, Lie, Lie. Everything out of this blog is a lie. You can not even say the word embryonic. Say it. See you can't. You lie about this issue. You lie about high fuel prices. You lie about property taxes. People aren't as stupid as you think. Keep lying and we'll see if it works.

Extreme Green now has a plan for his own version of fund shifting in public education. Turn off the heat, shut down the buses and let the roof fall in. Hire more classroom teachers with the savings. That is if there is any after I freeze your spending. When you are Extreme Green nothing is impossible.

We don't think you're stupid, shadow, we have proof that you are ... "Typically liberials!"

Speaking of lying about embryonic stem cell research, did you catch the whopper that Mark Graul passed in the Wisconsin State Journal this morning? He intimated that the Pro-Life Wisconsin survey was basically lost, and that's the reason that Mark Green didn't complete and return it. He implied that Green might return it, if they find it. Maybe PL-W will send another copy to Graul's attention.

For those who did not see the story, Pro-Life Wisconsin asked candidates whether they would protect life from the moment of fertilization and also to vote to completely ban embryonic stem cell research in Wisconsin. Also, will you vote against abortion in cases of rape, incest, and when the life of the mother will be lost without an abortion. That's the litmus test.

Think about it -- dad rapes his daughter and the daughter is sentenced to carry to term, even at the risk of her own death! No wonder Mark Green wants to duck these cruel and heartless extremists.

At some point, however, he will have to stand up in a debate with the Governor and the chance to duck, bob, and obfuscate will be gone. It's going to be fun to watch.
