It’s time to get some new advisors. It’s starting to get embarrassing. You lift the caps on the state safety net for the differently-abled and the elderly, make it look like you did it because – damn it – it’s the right thing to do – and just about dislocate a shoulder patting yourself on the back. Either your advisors thought the letter from the Feds ordering you to lift the caps would not make the light of day, they’re as arrogant as you, or they’re dumb. Any way you cut it, you best get some thinkers on the team. Before it’s too late.
The GOP majority in Wisconsin meant that the new legislative district maps drawn up every 10 years were going to be a hot topic. In the past, because power was split between the Democrats and the Republcians and they couldn’t agree on what time it was, a judge had to do the work. This time, with Republicans in control across the board, Baby Fitz, Big Fitz and a host of other Republican lawmakers with too much time on their hands got their Number 2 pencils out and took care of things themselves. A group of citizens saw it coming and filed suit in federal court and, little by little, we’re seeing how stuff gets done in the Capitol these days.
I was watching NFL.com’s Gameday Highlights of the Packer/Bears game one last time and it occured to me that the Packers have beaten the Bears 4 times in 12 months. Average it out and that’s an ass-kicking every three months.
I don’t think you’re dumb as a rock. Therefore, I think you’re a liar. You may be sorry but for all the wrong things. Including the fact you may very well get kicked out of office before you’re first term is even up. The truly sorry thing about this is you’ll land on your feet no matter what happens. You win the recall and you’re a political star in the Republican Party. You lose and you’re a martyr.
Worse than the allegations against Gableman and other public figures who act as if they’re above it all and take advantage of their position is their belief that they can do this stuff simply because of who they are. The list is long and getting longer. To a person, it’s tripe like this who, along with their supporters, rattle on about the “occupy” protesters being godless hippies with no job and no values.
The occupy protesters are real-life Howard Beales. I’m beginning to believe they’re the only ones who will save us.
