Wisconsin: My sister on what we should be doing. She nailed it again

I so admire my big sister. Once again she knows just the right thing to say. Here's her thoughts on how we should behave following Walker's avoidance of the recall:


"A message I think we must go all out in sending again and again to counter the right's appeal to people's worst tendencies is to appeal to what's good in us.

Let's say loud and clear that we intend to keep taking care of one another, because that's the Wisconsin way. We intend to keep working for public policies that do the same.

And when anyone says some will abuse the system, we acknowledge the truth in that but insist it's more important to help those who need help than to obsess about the bad apples."

1. Your sister is very smart...

I kept waiting for an ad by the Dems on these very points. Alas, no such luck.

2. Not bad for a woman in a burqa.

Or was that her bank robbing outfit?

4. Can't we hire her to 'message' the next few campaigns?

We need a MESSAGE, a positive MESSAGE. We dems seem to be crap at that. Your sister seems good at it!

With all the money that gets donated to dems, why the hell don't we have a better message???

5. Oh my gosh Scuba.....

this is exactly what we need to START, AND KEEP saying.....our humanity, and our compassion for one another should be paramount in our policies. Oh my, this is just the best Scuba. Please hug your sister for me. This is just a simple, but powerful message the Dems need to start and continue to send out, because I for one believe that this is the truth, and everyone wants the truth.
