"'Tear Down This WALL'ker"/"Torture Fitzgerald"/Meade + Hulsey/Krampus.

At the Wisconsin Capitol today... a man in a Reagan mask had come up with a clever saying...

A woman with pinwheels didn't seem to be taking the subject of torture seriously enough...

Our assemblymanm Brett Hulsey — who'd been trying so hard to avoid Meade — found us and was amiable and talkative....

Well, hooray. Can't wait to hear what Hulsey had to say . . . I wonder if he finally actually looked at your coverage of the demonstrations, rather than taking other people's word for it.

I thought Cook and Alpha had told us the Lefties were against torture.

I guess it's OK if you're torturing someone standing in the way of Glorious World Socialist Revolution.

and here I thought Krampus was a Dec 5th thing in Austria and Bavaria. I thought you Wisconsin folks were Scandi, not Alpine?

Torture Fitzgerald has to be an English teacher.

So, what's the process now that "The Law" is in effect? Are authorization slips being designed and when will they be distributed to Wisconsin employees regarding payroll deductions for union dues? Actually, how will "The Law" be implemented?

Perhaps even more importantly, when will London's anarchists begin to teach Wisconsin's union thugs how to be proper union thugs, destroying property and assaulting their opponents?

So much to do and so little time to do it before the 2012 fall elections.

This is all becoming way too trendy and cute.

If you call torture and overthrow of a duly elected government cute.

Please don't tell me that "Arrest the Capitol Mob" is one of us. 'Cause DAMN. Wearing a royal blue pup tent, Inca fanny pack and cap, with tits to the ground is not my idea of a conservative.

Good for him.

Doubtful. The Left has an awkward relationship with irony. Like when Shiloh comes along to tell us we're unserious and boring....

That snap of Meade and Hulsey looks like a still from the latest Hollywood bromance for the forty-something set.

"Hey dude! I didn't peg you as a Farmer's Market type."

"Dude, it's the only place you can buy Arrogant Bastard ale and watercress."

Big Mike said...

So which "Capitol Mob" is supposed to be arrested? The mob that stormed the state Capitol? Or is that phrase a left-wing code word for the Republicans?

Conservatives usually try hard not to look like something from an old (40 years) Sally Field movie of the week.

Actually, s/he looks like Mick Jagger.

"All the world is a stage." Someone get the hook. On second thought-- you will know them by their actions. Keep it up ---the adults(read taxpayers) will turn up in the voting booths and affirm Walker and Fitzgerald.

That's what I'm say'n

What is amusing is that while the lefties keep marching and waving signs, the unions are losing the battle all across the country. Florida has now passed a bill ending dues collection for public employee unions, just what they are protesting in Madison.

The local teachers' union are hampered by inordinately whiney, unintelligent-sounding reps.

The most they could get was a free pass to SeaWorld. Most took it and ran.

wv: waymor (Florida is waymor crazy than Wisconsin)

LOL! Yes, she does, Edutcher.

E.M. Davis said...

That reminds me ... I need to pick up my "E.M. Davis" emblazoned coat at the drycleaners.

"Tear down this wall-ker" is really a cute line.

Alex said...

After yesterday I'm DONE with the shiloh/Ritmo crowd. They're disingenuous assholes and I won't give them one more word. Finito. Over. QED!

Heh. Thats why I didn't mind watching Union muscle get bogged down in Wisconsin. Send your troops to bang drums as the Capitol. Meanwhile....

This is what opposition to democracy looks like.

It seems Meade and Hulsey also share similar tastes in footwear. What do you call those types of sneaker/shoes, blenders? Very earthy, ant-friendly, like part of the environment, nothing aggressive - except possibly the price.

Also revealing are the respective bows; single-knotted and virtually identical. In fact, a lot of similarities, as if Meade & Hulsey could eat off the same plate.

Great picture, as one seems to be a welcome reflection of the other, like two old friends meeting in the square.
