Scott Walker Tells A Joke

Apparently, when you email the governor's office, you get automatically added to a spam program and get nailed with Scott Walker's spam, er, I mean e-Updates.

The one he's been sending out lately is a real hoot!

First, given his long and sordid history of cronyism, I think he is using state equipment and computers to solicit campaign donations:

Apply to Serve in State Government

We have a substantial number of open positions available on various state boards, commissions and in other areas of state government. Please visit to find information on these positions.

Positions frequently become available, so if you are interested in serving please apply and our office will keep your application on file. If you’ve been looking to get involved in state government this is a great way to use your skills to serve the residents of Wisconsin!
I love that "positions frequently become available" line. Of course they frequently become available. Walkergate keeps chasing people away.

But Walker also tells a funny at the end of the spam e-Update:
Each e-update I will answer a question submitted by a recipient of the previous e-update or from someone who contacts my office directly.

Question: Why did you choose to greet President Obama?

Answer: This week President Obama visited Wisconsin for the first time in about a year. The White House reached out to my office earlier this week and invited me to welcome the President to Wisconsin.

I have the utmost respect for the Office of the President of the United States.
Now that's funny! Looking at Walkergate, it's obvious that he never respected the position of Milwaukee County Executive. And given all the abuses of power and other acts of corruption over the past year, it's obvious he doesn't respect the office of governor. Why in the world would anyone think he respects the President of the United States?  In fact, he didn't show much respect for the presidency when he was kissing people's butts at CPAC last week.


  1. Your blog always gives me the most wonderful, hopeful, little clues! I love reading these. Please keep up the good work, you wonderful man!

  2. I would have had big spender written on the back of the brewer jersey to give to him. You know, cause Im racist.

  3. I had never emailed the gov's office, but I did get the initial email sent from it. So, I wonder, if one emails their Republican rep. or sen., does that all get lumped into where the Gov. got my email address?

    I did "unsubscribe" after that first one, though.

  4. He went to the tarmac voluntarily to help the President

  5. To: "Imustbeawhitesupremacist," some of us here are not big fans of President Obama. He wasn't as bad as McCain/Sarah Quitter.

    If you were a conservative you would know that the oligopolies/corporations are hording mountains of cash. They won't even pay it out as dividends to shareholders, because the 1% won't let them. Given that even greater TAX BREAKS are counter productive to employment, we are in a DEFLATIONARY spiral. There is no "DEMAND, which further cuts "Supply."



  6. Hah! I am reading the tweets and I like the Clue game idea! It the saw firm with the secret ethics bribe in the courtroom.

    (or is that off topic? wish I could twitter!)

  7. I meant to say, "It was the law firm with the secret ethics bribe in the courtroom"
