If it weren’t so sad it would be laughable. I’m speaking of the latest TV commercial in support of Governor Scott Walker’s regime and against his recall.
Kristi, “a teacher,” calls the recall a case of “sour grapes,” conjuring up images of Pewee Herman pouting, “I know you are, but what am I?”
She goes on to say that she’ll vote for the guys who say what they mean and mean what they say.
While campaigning for office, Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch promised to voluntarily pay for their own retirement benefit upon taking office as employees of the state of Wisconsin. They said they were going to lead by example.
However, an Associated Press open records request revealed that neither voluntarily paid in before the new law took effect in August and forced the issue. According to the AP a spokesman for Walker and an aide to Kleefisch had no explanation as to why they didn’t pay until forced to by law.
So much for “meaning what they say” and “saying what they mean.”
