Lance Burri, aka the TrogloPundit, apparently is easily confused.

Take for example, this excerpt from this post, in which he takes exception regarding the group of hardy people that went to Madison on Monday to let Goobernator Scott Walker know that we are out here and we are ready to hold him and his cronies accountable:
Note what the sign says: “We Need Good Jobs NOW!” Outside the inauguration of a conservative, pro-business governor who is replacing a liberal, anti-business governor whose idea of job creation was raising taxes by several billion dollars and sticking taxpayers with untold billions in debt.

If that’s not ironic, I don’t know what is.
Actually, the irony is that he doesn't get it.

The truth is simple. Walker's brand of being "pro-business" does not equate to good jobs.

A good job would be one that pays a living wage, provides decent benefits and does not unduly endanger the worker. Walker's idea of how things should be would be a major decrease in a worker's pay; cutting, if not cutting out, employee benefits (especially for homosexuals); and loosening, if not entirely eliminating, safety regulations and consumer protections.

Perhaps Lance has spent so much time among the elitists that he doesn't understand what the working class is going through. Maybe he doesn't understand that concentrating the wealth among a few will not help the state or the people that are struggling and suffering, or fix the economy.

Or maybe he does and just doesn't care.
