The Patriotism of White Wisconsin

Every day, Milwaukee area radio squawker Charlie Sykes declares the White Wisconsin winner and loser of the day.  I'm pretty sure the gentle reader can accurately surmise what kind of people the Mouth of the Louts might deem to be a winner or loser.

On Wednesday, the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Sykes declared the winner of the day to be "the American resolve."  He invoked all of the jingoistic phrases that the conservatives love to spout on this date, regardless of how hypocritical they sound.  For example, he praised the brave first responders who risked and sacrificed their lives that day, even though he refers to them as union thugs the other 364 days of the year.

What is really odd about this super-patriotism is that just the other day, his White Wisconsin winner of the day communist Russian President Vladimir Putin.  He didn't chose Putin for offering a viable way to avoid military strikes against Syria.  Rather, his reason for picking Putin was because Sykes claimed that Putin "embarrassed" President Barack Obama on a national stage.

Think about that for a minute.

One day, he's crowing about how our president was tweaked by the communist Russian president, the next he is praising how the country had pulled together to stand as one against the terrorists.  It's amazing that his head doesn't explode from the cognitive dissonance he must experience on a daily basis.

And as one might presume, not once did Sykes even acknowledge that it was President Obama who was finally able to find Osama bin Ladin, the mastermind behind the terrorist attacks twelve years ago, and bring him to the ultimate justice.

Is it any wonder why WTMJ-AM (commonly referred to by their true call letters WGOP) isn't even in the top three stations?  If it wasn't for the fact that WTMJ carries the Packers, the Badgers, the Brewers and the Bucks games, they probably wouldn't be in the top ten.

    Kochsuckers financed by $250 Million secret fund.

    Almost as much money as KKKarl Rove.

    No wonder John Doe took that call.
