A common complaint you'll hear from me about Wisconsin politics, as well as politics in general, is that new faces are hard to come by.

But then there's folks like Asher Heimermann that make me smile: http://www.asherforwisconsin.com...

To summarize, Asher is running for Wisconsin State Assembly for District 26 as a Democrat. What's the catch? He's a senior at Sheboygan High School.

Yep: an 18-year-old is running for state assembly. My thought on the matter is: why not? He's a small business owner, and a very fresh face; so, provided the people like him, I don't see any reason for him not to run/get elected.

But what do you think?

I would like him to be a college senior, not a high school senior. But that's my opinion. Otherwise, it's good for him.

I suppose that would be ideal, but an involvement in politics and a good plan is more important than education.

There is inexperience, and then there is this. I wouldn't vote for him, if thats how the system works.

He'd get eaten alive by the older politicians.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16
