Faux Outrage, Real Hypocrisy

Scott Walker must not be doing so well in the polls and is feeling pretty nervous.

He has joined in the likes of Charlie Sykes, Mark Belling, Fred Dooley, Tom McMahon, Patrick Dorwin and the rest of the Posse Comatose to attack Tom Barrett about the MMSD dump from the record breaking rainfall a couple of weeks ago. You know, the one that Walker ran away from when his leadership was needed the most.

They wail and moan about the poop in the water and snarl that Barrett hasn't fixed the problem.

The funny thing is, it is these same people that, day in and day out, week after week, month after month, and year after year, piss and moan that their taxes are too high. Now they're pissing and moaning that Barrett didn't raise their taxes enough.

I wonder if they realize how foolish they make themselves look sometime.


  1. It is also funny that barrett made cleaning up the MMSD an issue during his campaign to become mayor...that has also failed flat. Perhaps if he kept his word the issue now would be about his leadership in changing MMSD not keeping it the same.

    There are things that are needs (fixing MMSD) and wants (high speed rail). When barrett decides to stand behind the wants before the needs it shows a lack of leadership.

  2. So are you willing to pay the higher taxes needed to fix MMSD so it never dumps again?

  3. Yes...all cities that are polluting (like this) need to fix their potions of this NOW; through out the country. Defending these dumps is terrible.
