Comment from a Wisconsinite[edit]

It is my own opinion that aside from all the out of state help Walker got in his election, the big reason we have this guy in power is because the WisDems can't get their shit together. Even though I am technically aligned with the Democratic Party for the sake of convenience, the bullshit generated by Mike Tate (the head of the WisDems) makes it really, really difficult to support them. I think it'd also help if WisDems absolved themselves of the smear that they are dependent on machine politics through public sector unions (I personally don't have a problem with them, but my fellow cheeseheads now do).

Wisconsin lost it's reputation as a "Clean government state" when DLCer's bribed African-American voters with cigarettes to vote for Al Gore in the 2000 election on the heals of the Clinton era crusade against 'Big Tobacco'. It was the Democrats who brought Chicago-Arkansas-Louisianna style politics to Wisconsin. nobsISIS is a thorn in the world's ass and will be removed. 15:59, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Racism[edit]

You got any source on his racism you could link here? --Arisboch (talk) 05:49, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Probably not. Just don't accuse them of not being rational, or they'll play a drinking game. Burkean (talk) 10:06, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, 'cause it's not like googling "Scott Walker" and "racism" will yield a selection of articles to choose from, incl. from Salon, The New Republic and Daily Kos. Even Fox News tacitly agrees (though it of course puts "racist" in scare quotes) which led a this blogger to point out the hypocrisy of Walker firing an aide for old racist tweets. You're welcome, but please pay for your own drinks. ScepticWombat (talk) 10:22, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I see, so people with an agenda, and internet trolls who are self-described journalists put a lot of shit out on the internet where there are none of the journalistic regulations on factual content that the traditional media USUALLY abides by, and now proof positive. Guess what, many of the people who work for the online versions for legitimate news sources don't have the journalistic qualifications that those who work for the same organization in the traditional media format have. This bothers rationalwiki when it's someone who's conservative (these people have no qualifications to be talking about what they're talking about!!!). Guess what, if you type Michael Jackson and pedophile, you'll get tons of results too. That proves he's a pedophile right? Only somehow, rationalwiki doesn't buy that one. But apparently, such logic works for Scott Walker, the racist republican. I thought this was supposed to be...oh shit, now you're drunk. Burkean (talk) 03:48, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
