Q: What Does The Bible, The Constitution And The Wisconsin State Flag Have In Common?

A: Republicans cherry pick only the parts that fit their demented points of view.

It's been pointed out numerous times on this blog and other sites that Republicans will readily cite the Bible or the Constitution only when it fits their arguments, even if means ignoring all the rest.

They're doing the same thing with the Wisconsin State Flag.

When trying to justify their massive giveaway to the mining companies, they often will point out that there is a miner on the flag, as if that makes it OK for them to trash the environment, sink the economy and disrespect sovereign tribes.

The funny thing is that the flag also has the arm of labor on it.  That didn't seem to matter to them when they forced Act 10 down our throats, causing the state economy to come to a screeching halt and leading to a loss of over 15,000 jobs during Walker's reign.

Maybe I'm being too hard on them though.  I'm sure it's hard for them to see well when they have their noses so far up the corporate special interests' butts that they could tell us what they had for breakfast.


  1. Ah, now that's the Capper we all know and love!

  2. Thanks for pointing out the hypocritical politics of paleorepublics on the fringe of history. By the way, the Framers of the Constitution purposefully created a strong national government to guard against the kind of lunacy coming from the paleoright these days.
