Why “Vice President Scott Walker?”
Isn’t it obvious?
Look, I won’t put money on it, but then being a relativist I’ve never been a betting man. But if I were Romney I’d take advantage of Walker’s win, or “win” depending upon Wisconsin voting machines.
Note: if I were to fix an election I certainly wouldn’t
make any win overwhelming. No, what I’d do in a case like Wisconsin, especially in a recall election where the previous loser is challenging the winner, is make sure the winner gets just enough to make sure it’s not suspicious, and the “winner” could claim his wicked ways have been approved by Wiscosin-ians.
And that’s exactly what happened here. So let’s just say either it’s yet another example of a conspiracy of coincidences that seem to only favor Republicans, or, once again, “the fix” was “in.”
Now, what to feed the Teabag rabble who love anything anyone left of them hates?
Someone line Scott Walker.
Walker is also one hell of a great vacuum for big corporate interest money. Anyone who says the Supremes and their big wet kiss to corporate interests buying elections called Citizens United had no effect is, essentially, very deluded or lying. Apparently Equal Protection is only for Right Wing pols whose Daddy, or Daddy’s friends, appointed them. Everyone else: just bend over.
Would Walker be so divisive Romney would lose? Hardly. “Divisive” doesn’t matter. Not when the actual vote, and counting the vote, is left to corporations. And those of us on the Left who have been concerned about the integrity of the vote aren’t the only ones concerned about all this.
Walker could be Romney’s Spiro T. Agnew to Walker’s new boss: a revised version of Nixon, corrupt more in the corporate sense.
Think things will be OK with Walker as VP because there will still be Democrats in office?
Think again. Walker will be the first to push the policy he pushed in Wisconsin: if unhappy with any elected officials all they have to do is replace them with a crony. Romney, certainly, would be interested.
And we all know the Supreme 5: plus whatever, will applaud.
