Everybody and their dog now knows that a certain shithead Governor in Wisconsin survived a recall election yesterday and Bloggers everywhere are busy analyzing the results.
I certainly would have liked to have seen the weasel get gone but I don’t have any skin in that game.
What interests me about the whole thing is the money spent compared to the results.
Wanker outspent Barrett roughly 8 to one with scads of out of state donations.
That race saw SIXTY MILLION dollars spent on a recall election, by far and away an obscene amount.
Most of that came from out of state.
This is what I find interesting.
Walker won 53 percent to 46 percent despite spending eight times as much on advertising.
Take away all that money and he would be packing his bags right now.
I can take away two positives from yesterday, one, He lost his majority in the upper house, even if it is largely symbolic.
Two, all that fucking money that the Republicans threw at that recall desperately trying to save one Governor is money they no longer have and therefore can’t throw it at Mitt Romney in the larger Presidential race.
Not like they don’t already have a giant stash of cash just for that too.
Now Governor Walker can get back to his union busting and other devious objectives in relative peace, all the while knowing in the back of his mind he is bought and paid for.
I hope they left the money on his night stand.
