RNC Lady Wishes You Weren't Stupid, Wisconsin
Everyone say hello to Sharon Day, co-chair of the Republican National Committee and today’s winner of the “Shhh! You’re Not Supposed To Say That Out Loud” award. Day was visiting Wisconsin to fire up the troops working to re-elect Scott Walker as governor when she spoke the following aloud at a field office in Waukesha.
It’s not going to be an easy election, it’s a close election. Like I said, much closer than I can even understand why. I don’t want to say anything about your Wisconsin voters but some of them might not be as sharp as a knife.
True! Some Wisconsin voters might also be a few french fries short of a Happy Meal, a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic, or a few bulbs short of a chandelier.
Look Republicans, two things. First, yr Wonkette agrees that people who vote Republican are dumber than dirt. Second, if you’re going to call American voters uneducated morons, you have to be cute and charming about it, like Adlai Stevenson. Don’t be obtuse and clumsy like Sharon Day, or Georgia state Sen. Fran Millar, who prefers “more educated voters” instead of those people. (Black people. He meant black people.)
This incident should not surprise anyone, considering 1) that Sharon Day is from Florida and worked on the recount in Broward County during the clusterfuck that was the 2000 election, and 2) the utter contempt with which Scott Walker and his state legislature full of obedient Republican poodles have treated half the Wisconsin electorate for the last four years. On the plus side, it seems that Wisconsinites are catching on, as polls show Democratic challenger Mary Burke has just about erased Walker's lead.
Feel free to throw her some money and help her close the gap!
