How Wisconsin’s GOP-Media Complex Made Scott Walker Governor And Propped Up His Presidential Run

Posted by Phoenix Woman on September 27, 2015

If you’re wondering how such a blithering idiot like Scott Walker could become and remain governor of Wisconsin, longtime Kossack “Jake formerly of the LP” has your answer: A local and statewide media that is all but totally in the tank for him.

So Scott Walker’s now back here in Wisconsin, pretending to actually do the job the taxpayers shell out 6 figures for him to do, but more likely trying to get a couple of last grabs of money and power for his paymasters before quitting as Governor to grab some “real money” as a lobbyist or rubber-chicken speaker on the wingnut welfare circuit. And the lessons of Walker’s faceplant on the national stage should ring loud and clear back here in Wisconsin, as all of these flaws were evident before he entered the presidential race, but they were never hammered on with enough consistency by the state’s Democrats, and were never followed up on by the paid-off state media.

This sheltered existence Walker got away with in Wisconsin must change and we must do our part to make it change (because the oligarchs and connected inner circle won’t fix this mess on their own – they’re making too much money in the Age of Fitzwalkerstan). If we do it right, and do remove these cancers that are wasting our state away, it could lead to the major changes in Wisconsin’s political landscape in 2016 and 2018. And that might just save this state, and start to restore its reputation as a place that used to attract talent and maintain a high quality of life.

  1. Thx for this. I’ve encountered no media worth following since moving here except for maybe Cognitive Dissidence, a Milwaukee blog that’s kind of wonky. At a statewide Democratic conference almost everyone reported massive dissatisfication with Walker in every corner of the state. There are rumors about a new scandal involving a campaign official and the possibility of Walker resigning before his term is complete.

    Things get crazy when the Nixon types implode.
