at least Sarah Palin was fooled by someone pretending to be a head of state.
Also: Koch sucker.

Jesus fucking CHRIST. This should be front page news everywhere.
NYT picked it up, but only as part of a larger story.

I think what you need to get your head around is the fact that fully half of the population not only agree with the man but promote his behavior. Those same people are by and large poor and working class. 5 star evil, this.
"If I suck the collective cock of the plutocracy, maybe I'LL be rich, too!"
Actually, not half the population.... half of the voting poplation. HUGE difference.
In that vein, this morning at work, Fox News is on in the coffee room as always, and I stop in to put my lunch in the fridge. Some guys on Fox are talking about WI state cops being sent after the absent Dem senators, and questioning whether those senators will/should lose their jobs.
The janitor (a younger Latino guy who seems in no way right-wing or mean-spirited) looks up from mopping the break room and, with a nod at the TV, says to me "Let those bigshots lose their jobs, right? Let them see how it feels for once."
Without even paying much attention, he had integrated the current GOP narrative that public-sector workers are the real enemy. Propaganda is some powerful shit. You can't have a real Democracy without a well-informed public.

Welcome to the plutocracy.

In the sense that Koch brothers literally own Scott Walker. They have purchased him and they now own him.

nope, sorry, he's not screwed

I would say we're doomed, but doomsayers are often wrong. I think we're the other kind of doomed, the kind that actually happens.

Walker doesn't really mess up at any point. He sticks to the ideology pretty firmly. Sure, he talks a lot about withholding pay and prosecuting the senators, but that's pretty well known. The real selling point of this video is that it shows that truly these men are delusional as they say. I would prefer him to be some two-faced bottom feeder to an actual honest-to-god believer in his methods. I feel sorry for the workers in his state and others, because though they are compromising, this man never ever will. Rigidity will be the downfall of us all.
