Blaska is a ‘road warrior gangster who cooks and sells meth out of back-country farmhouses’

Who knew? A former state government employee, hopelessly addled by Walker Derangement Syndrome, vents his ample spleen to Dane County’s liberal-progressive-socialist voice, which is always in the market for such tripe:
Dear Editor: … Our own governor Scott Walker has adopted as an [sic] motif of his presidential candidacy a Harley Davidson [sic] motorcycle, the icon of drugs and thugs.
Sure, there are a fair number of orthodontists and CPAs and other well-heeled Walter Mitty types who like to dress up like make-believe hoodlums, and blat around the countryside on their chromed-up $20,000 “hogs” on peaceful weekends, sounding like a rolling convention of out-of-tune farm machinery. Sometimes to advance their image they’ll even sponsor a “ride” to raise a couple of bucks for homeless kittens or diseases of the uvula. Mainly, though, they like to just cluster up at some country tavern, where if they’re lucky they might even get to rub shoulders with some authentic cycle savages, in the same way they take their kids to the zoo to look at exotic wild animals from a safe distance.
The real core constituency of Harley riders though, is real-life road warrior gangsters who cook and sell meth out of back-country farmhouses, invade rural rock concerts for sport, and shoot holes in each other in small-town saloon brawls. Their raucous and menacing two-wheel conveyances are the foremost symbol of their in-your-face rebelliousness and their disdain for civil society and the rule of law. Scott Walker’s attempt to characterize himself as some sort of bold and resolute Satan’s Eagle Scout just looks in fact like an indication of a deeper phoniness. — Mike Pfrang, Madison.
Blaska's not pictured, but that is his Harley on the left. (Somebody had to take the photo.)
Drugs and thugs! LOL! Pictured are 13 of 16 folks riding 12 motorcycles, with whom I rode for most of nine days and 1,689 miles around Lake Superior last month. This group includes three very successful dairy farm families, the CEO of Landmark Services Cooperative, an international cattle breeder, an IT director, quality control managers at Oscar Mayer, and execs from Nasco farm suppliers. Some of us did invade a reggae concert in Duluth, but I swear — no meth labs!
They investigated Scott Walker and all they got was this lousy headline
Could you follow the latest John Doe story dump? “Warrant linked Walker to felony,” the page one headline screams. I’ve read the State Journal story several times and it’s hard to follow. Seems to involve a real estate deal for county offices that would have benefitted Walker’s campaign treasurer. Except for one thing: “The county never followed through with the deal for the building and no charges were filed.”
We get this nugget deep into the jump on page A7 in the fourth and final column of a lengthy news article — 14 paragraphs into an 18-paragraph story.
So we’re going to the races with the allegation contained in a search warrant from prosecutors in an investigation closed two years ago who, in the subsequent John Doe 2 probe, revealed themselves to be partisan hacks. The adage to evacuate or get off the pot is relevant here. If Milwaukee D.A. John Chisholm had evidence to prosecute he could have done so. Lord knows he wanted to bag Scott Walker.
Criminal law 101: If there is no crime there can be no charges.
That this “leak” is coming from prosecutors highly motivated by partisanship speaks volumes. Media Trackers notes that 43 members of Chisholm’s staff signed Walker recall petitions; the DA’s chief investigator, David Budde, displayed a “Recall Walker” sign in his yard. The prosecutors are being sued in civil court for violating the rights of one of the investigation’s targets. In desperate self-defense, the prosecutors are throwing everything they’ve got against the wall.
Trial by innuendo, indeed.
