Walker attacks Burke on outsourcing; will he now censure his friends?

It was bound to come: the full-frontal assault on Mary Burke over outsourcing. In fact, I predicted this months ago. This doesn’t make me a genius, of course. I also predicted Ted Nugent would eventually make overtly racist comments about Barack Obama that could make an 18th century Boston longshoreman expectorate his porridge for a fortnight. But hey, the magic day has arrived at last, and we all get to find out what a pure patriot Scott Walker is.

On gay marriage, conservatives fighting a war they’ve already lost

Say, what’s the difference between Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen and this Japanese soldier, who continued fighting World War II for 29 years because he didn’t know it was over? Honestly, I can’t think of much.

Despite spin, Walker likely stuck with dismal jobs record until Election Day

Anything can happen. Scott Walker might singlehandedly discover a cure for chronic back pain while dispensing well-earned noogies to highly decorated World War II veterans. A random bee sting could swell Mary Burke’s head to the size of a Coors Party Ball, leaving her unable to campaign from August onward. Brett Husley could wake up one day and say, “Hey. Wait a second. I just realized something. I’m completely insane. Maybe I should stop turning this election campaign into an asinine farce. Where are my pants, and how did I end up in the baggage claim carousel at Austin Straubel Airport?”

By all means, Ron Johnson, let’s talk about Iraq

It’s difficult to come up with suitable responses to Republicans’ criticism of President Obama’s handling of Iraq. Difficult, because the GOP’s messaging is so clumsy and beyond Machiavellian at this point one can only assume they’ve created a prototype dumb-down ray designed to be 100 times more powerful than Fox News and are testing it out now for the first time.

Walker should be embarrassed by Minnesota’s Obamacare success

Remember this the next time you hear Scott Walker brag about how more Wisconsin families “are going to sleep knowing they have access to health care.” (No, really, he said that. Or at least his ad people did. And you’re right, it’s kind of like giving the captain of the Titanic credit for James Cameron’s Oscar.)
