Scott Walker Blames Ruin of His Political Party On City Folk
Scott Walker lost control of his state supreme court yesterday when commie pinko JoAnne Kloppenburg defeated conservative David Prosser's bid for re-election, though the race will probably end in a recount. How on Earth could a shoo-in for easy re-election like a supreme court justice with no real scandals on his record lose? WELL IT'S NOT SCOTT WALKER'S FAULT, IF THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE ASKING! The Republican Party of Minnesota is doing just fine! It's the fact that Wisconsin VERY SUDDENLY has major citiesthat's the problem. "You've got a world driven by Madison, and a world driven by everybody else out across the majority of the rest of the state of Wisconsin," he said. Secession time!
Scott Walker will take the parts of the state that don't hate his guts (i.e. nowhere) and turn them into a beautiful Wisconsin utopia where there are no such thing as workers' rights or benefits.
"For those who believe it's a referendum, while it might have a statewide impact that we may lean one way or the other, it's largely driven by Madison, and to a lesser extent Milwaukee," the governor said. "But those Senate recall elections on both the Democrat and Republican side aren't being held in Madison, they aren't being held in Milwaukee."
Actually, the state senators subject to recall elections are still in real trouble, based on the margins of yesterday's election in their districts, and based on the fact that, well, they're going to be put up to a recall vote. Even if he's right about control of the state senate, Scott Walker will still have to face the same statewide voters in his own recall vote. And unlike this Prosser guy, he's well known for being an actual terrible asshole!
But Scott Walker can remain delusional for however long he can hold onto power if he wants to. What else does he have to do with his time on the throne? [WisPolitics]
