Even though the FBI is hot on Walker's tail and has arrested just about every single member of his inner circle from his County Executive days . . . and even though we are losing jobs left and right in the state and have no shot in hell at reaching Walker's goal of 250,000 jobs in four years, my neighbors still have their damn "Stand With Walker" yard signs up.
These people who still hold Walker in such high regards musts be the masochists in the relationship, while Walker, who insists upon pitting parents against teachers, congregants against church leaders and neighbors against neighbors, is surely the sadist - the one who enjoys inflicting the pain upon others. (Tonette, I had no idea you guys were so kinky! Where do you and Scotty hide the whips and chains from your boys? In the closet - the long, dark, ugly closet with all of those skeletons that are just starting to be found is my best guess).
But it is not just rampant Walker supporters caught up in this destructive relationship - it is all of us. Innocent bystanders like students, poor people and the elderly (often poor themselves) are victims of this S&M style of governing that the GOP and the Tea Party have forced upon the state because the far right loves inflicting pain by denying certain people basic rights like health care and affordable education - and the right to vote.
Even head sadist, Scotty Walker himself has been victimized by his own aggressive and vindictive agenda. The latest poll from the Public Policy Survey shows that Scotty would likely lose a recall election to numerous Democratic candidates:
- Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett leads Walker 49 percent to 46 percent (not even running yet)
- Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk wins against Walker 48 percent to 47 percent;
- U.S. Rep. Ron Kind of La Crosse comes out ahead of Walker 46 percent to 45 percent;
- And Russ Feingold, who is not even running, beats Walker by 7 points.
It should also be noted that only Falk is actively campaigning for Governor - just wait until the Dems start to advertise and push full force.
But Scotty seems to indulge in the weakened and cracked state of the state. He seems to enjoy having half of the state HATE the other half of the state. He seems to thoroughly enjoying forcing all of us into a destructive and painful sadomasochist-style relationship.
So, a few questions to my S&M-loving neighbors?
Will you still "Stand With Walker" when he is sitting in County Jail and facing felony charges? Will you still vote for Walker during the recall election even if he cannot himself cast a ballot because he is a felon? Will you still stubbornly keep your yard sign up or will you swallow your pride, regain your sense of right and wrong and throw that blue eyesore in the dumpster next to the Walker "Brown Bag" that is oozing old stinky dog shit?
And if you think Scotty is innocent or a victim of the "left-wing propaganda machine" whatever the hell that is - think again.
Either Scotty knew nothing of the secret emailing campaign, or the ghost-internet routing system that was in place in his office, or the work being done on county time for his gubernatorial campaign - all in his office and all around him for months while he was the County Executive (making him a complete moron), or he knew what was going on and did nothing about it (which makes him a felon).
The reality is that he is probably both a moron and a criminal and it is time we end this destructive sadomasochist relationship.
See you in June for a recall!
