UW-La Crosse political science professor, Dr. Anthony Chergosky, in the WIZM studio Friday for La Crosse Talk PM discussing, if you had to pick only one Thanksgiving food, third-party presidential spoilers and how Americans are divided on politics and self checkouts.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

Began the show in holiday tradition, discussing all the best and worst things on the table during Thanksgiving — but like avoiding politics with family at the table, we avoided the divide on green bean casserole, as well.

After that, got into Wisconsin politics a bit on Republicans passing another “tax cut,” while a divided government got a $500 million Brewers stadium done. 

The bottom half of the show dealt with an ethics report on US House Rep. George Santos and why he’s not kicked out of Congress yesterday, and how the parties should have a backbone to dismiss members that are breaking rules.

Then we got into former US House Rep. Ron Kind’s comments on the “No Labels Party” coming in as potential spoilers in the 2024 presidential election. But would their moderate candidate spoil it for Democrats or Republicans?

Lastly, self checkouts, are you for them or against them? The country, there too, is divided.

    We would not need third part candidates if both major political parties really cared about us. We would not need third party candidates if the media had not sold out to the Democratic party a long time ago.
    Why any Republican would support Donald trump is beyond me when you have good viable candidates like Nikki Haley. Joe Biden has been an absolute disaster and if the media ever did his job it would be over for him.
    It is really sad when one a lot of voters want a person who would be vengeful in office and want retribution-Donald trump and a President who needs T.rump to run against in order to have a chance of winning re-election. Add the fact the Democrats are banking on the fact women want to end their baby’s life at any moment including labor to win elections is sick.
