Hypocritical Outrage

The folks at WisDems are putting out a bumper sticker regarding Scott Walker's bungling of the high speed rail and the consequences stemming from his stupidity.

Actually, the have two. The first sticker looked like this one:

But then after it hit the Intertubes, the right, led by State Representative Robin Vos (R-Crybaby) started whining that it was violent somehow. I suppose, if you have a propensity towards violence, anything appears violent.

The Democrats acquiesced to the right's faux outrage and changed the sticker to look like this:

It definitely loses some of its impact with the change. Instead of clearly showing that it was Walker who was responsible for the lost revenue and the lost jobs, it makes it look like the train was his brainchild and that he failed to get it done.

But the real silliness is the right's hypocritical outrage regarding this. Take, for example, Freedom Eden, who bewailed the original sticker as being some gruesome death wish. However, just four months ago, when gave us the ridiculous image of him donning a pair of boxing gloves and telling voters how he was going to fight and beat Tom Barrett, who had been the victim of a vicious beating at State Fair the year before, this same blogger said that it was no big deal and that Barrett and the Democrats should have thicker skin than to complain about it.

Just your typical hypocritical outrage that we see from the right any day of the week.

Oh, and if any Democratic operatives are reading this, save me a couple of the original ones, OK?


  1. When Barrett and company put out an ad talking about the beating he received, he made it fair game for the campaign. The only outrage about the "fighter" ad was the faux outrage from the left, trying to discredit Walker by attacking the imagery of the ad rather than the content.

  2. Sorry, capper, have to disagree on this one. If liberals want to state their case, they can focus less on the imagery and more on the substance. You have complained about Dad29's use of illustration to support his views (then has the audacity to say "I wasn't implying anything"), there is no need for Democrats to go down his sorry ass road.

  3. If Scott Walker is shot, then WisDems will be held responisble. NOT!

  4. Let's see radio, fox news, conservative columnists are responsible for all the vitriol in politics. Libs/Progressives are just exercising free speech with all their hate blogs and violent imagery! Yes, now I see how Conservatives are hypocritical.
