When your corporation needs to take care of some troublesome "environmental and regulatory matters" in Wisconsin, heh heh, just go see the dumb kid who never graduated college but did manage two DUI convictions, because that dumb kid isearning $81,5000 a year as one of Governor Scott Walker's top-paid people in the administration. But how did this young GOP idiot, Brian Deschane, get such a sweet job suckling on the public teat? Easy! According to the Journal Sentinel's Daniel Bice, Brian Deschane's father is "Jerry Deschane, executive vice president and longtime lobbyist for the Madison-based Wisconsin Builders Association, which bet big on Walker during last year's governor's race." Haha, now that's the kind of contribution that really pays off!


Imagine you're Jerry Deschane, a Republican lobbyist for the crooked home-construction industry. You need to smooth the way for your clients' pillage, and you would also like to get your ne'er-do-well failure of a son out of the house. He couldn't even finish college!

And how drunk was this kid, Brian Deschane, to get two DUI convictions when his dad is a Republican lobbyist who hobnobs with the likes of Scott Walker?

What was it that made Brian such an attractive candidate? Was it the lack of a resume, or was it the drunk driving? Did Walker think the environment needed a fun spoiled-brat friend who knows how to party?

"It doesn't look like he's ever had a real job," Rep. Brett Hulsey (D-Madison) said.

Hulsey noted that the recently approved law that made collective bargaining changes converts 37 top agency attorneys, communications officials and legislative liaisons from civil service positions to jobs appointed by the governor.

"This is an example of the quality of candidates you're going to get," said Hulsey

Anyway, Scott Walker is all about JOBS, especially (specifically) if you give Scott Walker's campaign a couple of sacks of money. Because Scott Walker will make that money go to work for you, if you are the person who paid the money to Scott Walker. Jerry Deschane of the Wisconsin Builders Association got Maximum Value out of the $121,652 he handed to Scott Walker: Not only does the Wisconsin Builders Association now have somebody on the payroll in charge of "environmental and regulatory matters," but that same drunken failure kid is also earning $81,500 from Wisconsin taxpayers. Score! [JS Online]

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
