If we must be impregnated with democrats, I wish we could clone Schipske, and let her replicants have all the other seats on the city council so it would be run responsibly, with some professionalism, and apparent respect for her constituency regardless of party. Mostly.

Every time I ever read about her in the PT, she's usually trying to do something reasonable. I don't always agree with her. I'm not a democrat, but if we're stuck with 'em, at least she's not some brand of politically-charged crazy.

I totally agree. I think she is the one of the sanest, most reasonable Democrat politicians in the State. At times, she is the lone voice of sanity in what has become the most destructive political party organization in America.
