Dispatches from Wisconsin: Crybaby Pinko-Commies
Today was a gorgeous day in Waukesha, Wisconsin, a few miles west of Milwaukee. It was gorgeous not only in weather and the modest houses with neatly trimmed lawns, but in the utter politeness of the Wisconsinians I encountered. Now, Waukesha is a heavily Republican district, but I still expected people to be a little more battle weary when we knocked at their doors. Nope, they were so sweet and so enamoured of Governor Walker! One women even invited one of our activists in for her green pepper soup (he decline, more houses to hit).
Anyway, that makes this CNN.com article makes my peaceful day all the more interesting. It’s been a vicious and brusing battle here in WI…it’s pitted neighbor against neighbor and even split families. But just read the profiles in the article of two people; one who support Walker and the other, a poor, pitiful college professor who got (shudder) 8% (yes, 8 FULL percent) of his benefits “cut” (aka: which really means he just had to pick up the 8% himself).
I would be so horribly mortified to have such a whining cry baby like that on my side. Honestly, if even I was some pinko-commie leftist, I’d leave them just for the mere fact that I CANNOT stand sissified whining of any political persuasion and the college professor just makes me want to stick hot pokers in my ears so I NEVER have to hear such BS from another human being again. #UGH.

And while 8% may not sound as bad as others in the state have seen, Hall says the benefits package at UW-Milwaukee used to be the selling point at the school.
“It is seriously difficult now to both retain and attract quality people,” Hall said. ‘We are no longer competitive.'”
