Gov. Scott Walker's "damage control" is laughable: Comment Of The Day
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is dispatching state troopers again today in his never-ending effort to hunt down Senate Democrats.
But elsewhere he's a laughing stock for having been punk'd into revealing his plans for trying to bust his state's public employee unions.
"The 'damage control' is laughable," says one commenter. But don't get distracted by larger issues.
"This guy is a first class jerk from the word go. He couldn't find a backbone on any skeleton in his grimy little closet if his owners paid him to. Voters need to be paying attention to who stood behind this and show them you don't forgive or forget their part in attempting to destroy the middle class."
