Whistling past the graveyard or "Walker says Supreme Court wasnt referendum on him"
MADISON, Wis. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says the state Supreme Court race was not a referendum on him.

Walker said Wednesday the election that was too close to call was a choice about two different candidates with different backgrounds. Based on unofficial results previously unknown JoAnne Kloppenburg led incumbent David Prosser by a razor thin 206 votes.

snip

Walker says for those who believe the election was a referendum, the votes against Prosser were largely focused in the Madison and Milwaukee areas. He says hes not worried that the election results are a bad sign for Republican state senators up for recalls.

OK - that's actually kind of funny in a pathetic sort of way.

5. And if Prosser would've won, Walker would have said it's "affirmation" for his policies. n/t

6. There is a name for that psychological disorder-and appropriate medication for it too.
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 03:25 PM by 999998th word
He also suffers from a rectal cranial inversion.His head is up his ass. Most republicans and all teabaggers suffer from this.
This affects the lower and middle income demographic of these groups in epidemic proportions.
These people resist a proper diagnosis and treatment therefore are extremely difficult to cure.
Efforts to effect a cure are drastically underfunded .If these people cannot be cured their prognosis is poor.

8. ...and I guess the more liberal candidate winning against the GOP assemblyman for his old
seat in Milwaukee County wasn't a referendum on him either.

9. if it had been it would have been a landslide maybe...
I assume the incumbent had a wee bit of political capital not fully spent by Walker and his antics.

13. Perfect. If he is really that ideologically blinded
then it will be fun to watch him walk into the blindside that the recall elections will be as well as his own impending doom once his year is up.

The clock is ticking Governor Kochroach.

16. Walker is possessed by Baghdad Bob. "No Americans in Baghdad"
equivalent "Hes not worried that the election results are a bad sign for Republican state senators up for recalls."
