We’re all shocked, i know...
Charlie Pierce on the oozing, putrid swamp of Trumplandia.
“All along Walker has maintained his distance, with little to say. Trump won Wisconsin by only 22,748 votes. During the campaign ‘Russian-linked Facebook ads specifically targeted’ Wisconsin (CNN). And, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (MJS) reported: ‘Russian Twitter trolls stoked racial tension in wake of Sherman Park rioting in Milwaukee before 2016 election.’ Moreover, there were attempts by Russian ‘hackers’ to ‘get into Wisconsin (election) computer systems’ (MJS). Finally what about the NRA, Russia and Walker? Time for Keene and Walker to come clean.”
Oh lord. RoJo embarrasses all of us yet again.
“...A gotcha question is ‘a question posed by a reporter in an effort to trick a politician into looking stupid or saying something damaging.’
“...[It’s not] asking a Republican senator if he supports the sitting Republican President's reelection campaign. Elected officials, whose salaries are paid by the American people, should be willing to go on the record and say whether they support their party's leader in his attempt at reelection to the presidency -- particularly given how shaky so many Republicans were about supporting Trump the first time he ran.”
Oh my. Expect a truly massive onslaught of extreme rage tweeting 😂😂😂😂
“‘What’s very peculiar for students of the Watergate era is to see Trump speaking in the same self-incriminating terms publicly. Nixon had enough self-control to only do it privately,’ said Timothy Naftali, a historian at New York University and former director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum.”
“Tommy Thompson sees rehabilitated prisoners mitigating Wisconsin's labor shortages and has penned an op-ed on the subject that is part self-congratulatory, part self-critical, but missing a few historical details.”
Daft, dumb RoJo loves Pompeo.
“...Johnson, who sits on the committee, told Wisconsin Public Radio on Monday that Pompeo has the intellect, integrity and experience necessary to become the next head of the State Department.”
BUT HER EMAILS!
Duffy is a deeply unqualified fool who’s wholeheartedly embraced the ugliness and garbage talk of Trumpism. I know there’s a deep pocket of ignorance in his district, but his constituents deserve someone 900 percent better than this log-rolling joke.
“.. Eight of the top 10 GOP contributors are from out of state, including GOP mega-donor slime like Sheldon Adelson and the DeVos family. If you wonder why we give so many taxpayer dollars to voucher schools, or why Walker just signed a bill reaffirming support for Israel by preventing any area of state government from boycotting Israel for human rights abuses, and why US Senate candidate Leah Vukmir was the Israel bill's biggest proponent, following the money explains a lot.”
