I couldn’t have said it better than Wonkette. Here is the linky thing to the entire article about our illustrious college dropout governor, Scott Walker. But for your entertainment, here’s some of the funstuff about his magical tour as asshat-in-chief.
Man, anti-union free market capitalism ain’t what it used to be. A few years ago, rightwing hero and prolific union-h8r Scott Walker soared into the governorship of Wisconsin with the slogan, “Wisconsin Is Open for Business.” Within a few months, he was wiping corporate jizz off his chin after ramming through right-to-work legislation and sticking it to the unions. After surviving a recall election, just how is business doing in Wisconsin?<
Since he [Walker] took office, his state has fallen from 11th to 44th in job creation.
[However] Surely there is some good news, right? With unions all busted, the free market is jumping in, and the invisible hand is enticing workers with high wages, stellar benefits, and all kinds of goodness, right?
Wisconsin’s wages are also declining at twice the national level.
Oh, and Walker’s BadgerCare cuts will also cost Wisconsin employers some $36 million dollars, but that’s probably good for freedom, too.
Run, Scotty, run. Then you better run faster because you won’t be able to run away from your record.
