Accept No Substitutes

Earlier in the year, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel joined up with and started doing their version of PolitiFact, which is supposedly to put politicians' statements to the truth test.

Since they started this fiasco, they've had more than their fair share of blunders, bloopers and errors. The disdain for this thing goes down both sides of the aisle too.

Now they are announcing a special PolitiFact for Scott Walker and his campaign promises as he takes control of the state next year. Given their poor history of keeping Walker honest for the past eight years, I'm not holding out much hope for this project to be any better. The fact that they are asking for help figuring out Walker's promises doesn't bode well either.

But I have to ask you, gentle reader, why would anyone in their right mind settle for a cheap knock-off when they could have the original Weasel-O-Meter right here, for free?
