I know how it is.
You're a freshman Senator from Bayview/South Milwaukee. You're riding high on the thrill of your first big election victory, thinking "maybe this whole state government thing is going to be alright." Sure you're in the minority, but that means you get to say whatever you really want right? Who knows maybe you'll even get to co-sponsor a bill to give social services to poor people or something hippy-dippy like that.
But before you've even finished breaking in the tall backed "captains chair" your wife bought for your Madison office the shit hits the fan. The Governor goes totally 'roon the bend' and you can't walk from that great bagel shop on state street to your office without getting almost hit in the face with a "Local 171" sign.
Or maybe you've represented Poplar and north-west Wisconsin since your first election at the beginning of time. You've known the vagaries of being in and out of power. But after 20 years in Madison you've had it with this shit. Time to do something adventurous and blow this popsicle stand.
Either way you're on the lam, following river-beds and listening for dogs as you try to duck the fuzz and make it to sweet sweet freedom in the cornfields of Iowa or Illinois.
We've all been there.
Well lucky for you I'm here to help. I'm throwing open the guest room in my Logan Square home to any Senators currently evading the Wisconsin State Patrol. Sure you may not have all the comforts at home - no fresh cheese curds on every corner. But if you stare at the lake hard enough you might be able to pretend you're just in a bigger MIlwaukee... with an actual economy.
Amenities include:
1. Furnishings: Twin Bed, Dresser and closet
2. Bathroom with a large vintage tub.
3. A state merely plagued with political nihilism and outright corruption, as opposed to one collapsing into its own supernova of crazy.
Stay until its safe to slip back up in the cargo hold of a Metra train. Or if you want to stick around long term you can start a double life and announce your mayoral candidacy on Monday.
