Oh no- It's not bad enough to witness Obama's selfies, now we've got this guy showing us pictures of his sandwiches...

Remember how Scott Walker stole the whole "brown bag lunch" idea from someone else?

You didn't know that? Then you must get all your Walker info from Althouse, because she only makes a fuss when other people plagiarize while giving Slipperly Scott a free pass on his lying and thieving ways.

Walker Derangement Syndrome.

Yes Ann, you get pretty deranged when people dare to point out the follies of your Dear Leader. So mad you can't even counter what is being said and instead you start sputtering out random name calling like "toxic!" and "complete scumbag".

madAsHell said...

She wore white at her second wedding!!

Yes, I'm sure this will become an issue with Maureen Dowd....cuz no one has ever asked her.

Stole the brown bag lunch idea? Will this monster stop at nothing? Oh my!

surfed said...

This Florida boy loves me some Culver's. That chain is right up there with 5 Guys and In n Out. When I try to explain to the folks back home of a hamburger cooked in butter they look at me as if insane. But it's the burger that's insanely good. Yum. Just yum. Your Gov. Walker has just about landed my support.

iowan2 said...

Stole the brown bag lunch? No. I'm positive that practice and particular phrasing is complete and total creation of Scott Walker. He did that while creating the internets. An Idea that came to him when his chopper was hit and going down.

Texas Annie said...

A burger cooked in butter? I MUST get to Wisconsin, and now!

BDNYC said...

I once saw Scott Walker say to a constituent, "hey what's the good word?" I could have sworn I'd heard that exact phrase before, and sure enough I had.

To win a vote this man will literally do anything, including copying someone else's words without proper attribution.

I've never really got the point of twitter. Aside from the stupid name, why should a group of relative strangers care what I had for lunch?

Speaking of which, you should have seen a couple of the breakfasts the facility I currently live in served this past week: bowl of cereal, meager portion of scrambled eggs, one piece of toast sliced diagonally (counts as 2 pieces, right?) and half of a hot dog.

Now didn't you find that fascinating? Can I be governor, or a celebrity, or something, now?

Kzookitty, in case you hadn't noticed, neither Walker nor Althouse gets Twitter either.

A Culver's Butterburger is not cooked in butter. The bun is lightly buttered.

Titus said...

I like his tweets....simple and interesting.

Tonnette has gained quit a bit of weight-hopefully she can work on that during the presidential election.

Titus said...

My dad used to say, "what's the good word", and "it's colder than a witches tit".

He also called me a "suckatitty" when I didn't want to hunt with him.

MadisonMan said...

It's the fresh meat that makes a butterburger good.

I wish their fried cheese curds were better, but they'll do in a pinch. Good Fried Cheese curds in Madison: Old Fashioned and Gates&Brovi.

Titus said...

My dad would call pretty women "sweet tomatoes".

We don't have Culvers in Mass. I would be in trouble if we did.
They sometimes serve walleye-I love walleye-so Scony.

TosaGuy said...

I don't think Hillary Clinton is even aware of what her staffers put on her Twitter account.

Titus said...

You can't find crinkle cut fries out here-isn't that weird? I can only eat crinkle cut fries.

Crinkle cut fries are everywhere, including Culvers, in Wisconsin.

There used to be a cool restaurant in Eau Claire called Camaraderie and they served homemade huge cheese curds. We have fried mozzarella here.

OMG! I must've stole that from them. I'm nothing but a despicable cad.

I did, however, brown bag my lunch to school, in my post-metal-cartoon-character-lunchbox-that-the-hinges-rusted-off-of-by-spring phase.

So at least I'm keeping it real on the brown bag front.
Not to mention (so why am I?) making popcorn at work by microwaving it in a brown lunch bag. Cheap, tasty, and none of the carcinoginic butter flavor the microwave bags have.

BTW, a Culver's Butterburger Basket is just about the best fast food meal out there. Butter works with steak, too. Restaurants slather some butter on theirs to make them look and taste delicious.

As in kzookitty sure spouts a load of buinc, don't he?

n.n said...

None shall pass. The political world doesn't appreciate reality to intrude on its turf.

Kzookitty said...

The thought of what Titus would do with a huge cheese curd makes me shudder. Also nauseous.

Cheese.

as in Titus sure does psire him some giant cheese curds. He once ate one outside the Red Sox stadium.

Michael McClain said...

I cook my hamburgers in an iron skillet with butter and Worchester sauce.

Someone shoot me, I'm starting to sound like Titus.

Don't get me wrong, folks. I think Titus is a fine fellow. I wouldn't want to be like him, but I think I would like him.

What kind of name is Tonette anyway? Sounds like one of those weird made-up names they use in Utah, if you know what I mean. And I think you do.

And what kind of troglodyte morons clean their own sinks? When you don't finish college, I guess you can't afford help. I promise you that the Dem nominee hasn't scrubbed a sink in 40+ years. Forgotten how (if she ever knew in the first place).

Michael K said...

Is it too late for Mrs Walker to change her first name ?

Michael K said...

"So mad you can't even counter what is being said and instead you start sputtering out random name calling like "toxic!" and "complete scumbag".

Calm down, Inga. You are too early in the morning for this. Have a drink. Turn on the TV.

Johanna Lapp said...

Mike and Ike, we think alike (on the first lady's first name.)

EDH said...

How long before they call the Walkers Tonette and Tone-Deaf?

Hagar said...

Besides religious statements, politicians should also refrain from posting on Twitter, Facebook, etc.
Whatever they post is going to be used against them.

Also great cheese curds at Michael's Frozen Custard (better custard, too).

I wish all the candidates would just shut up and sit on their front porches, like them good old days.

Mark Caplan said...

Not Wisconsin-born, I had to look up Tonette (Tarantino) Walker. She is 12 years older than Scott and apparently didn't graduate from college. Is that right, Wisconsinites? I believe Mamie Eisenhower was the last first lady who didn't attend college.

Ann Althouse said...

"Is it too late for Mrs Walker to change her first name?"

Why? It's Tonette Tarantino.

That's better than Annette Funicello.

EMD said...

Actually, Walker is doing a great job at Twitter. It shows he has control over his message and has common-guy bona fides.

I hate "what's for lunch" updates as much as anyone else, but for a guy in the political realm who risks becoming out-of-touch with his voters, it's a quick and easy way to communicate things. Especially demonstrating you're not over-infatuated with your station in life.

it could all be a sham, of course, but it doesn't feel like it.

Left Bank of the Charles said...

Questions for Hillary:

When was the last time you cleaned a bathroom?

Are you comfortable making sandwiches?

Do you have a preference for strawberries?

Charlie Currie said...

Tonette's father's favorite meal was Sicilian steak and pasta. So is anyone really surprised that her maiden name is Tarantino?

Tonette - small plastic flute used in grammar schools.

Tonette - a suitable nickname for Antoinette

Was she called Toni in school?

Mark said...

"Not Wisconsin-born, I had to look up Tonette (Tarantino) Walker. She is 12 years older than Scott and apparently didn't graduate from college. Is that right, Wisconsinites?"

Yes. She is 59, he is 47.

She was nearing 40 when he married her at age 25.

Bob Ellison said...

The difference between Scott's and Tonette's ages is interesting.

I'd expect it to become a down-low talking point. He's a witch-lover. He's still in the closet.

He might just love the woman, who is extremely pretty in that wedding photo.

geokstr said...

This is pure propaganda for Walker.

Everybody (well, at least Mark and GM) knows that the evil Kochs personally deliver for his lunch every day a Wagyu filet in truffle cream sauce sandwich. It's wrapped in the world's most expensive bread, made with edible gold leaf, so Walker can defecate precious metal like they do.

Michael said...

This guy will drive the Progressive hordes like chaff before the storm. Given a choice between him and Hillary, the American people will vote for the actual human being.

Michael K said...

"Why? It's Tonette Tarantino.

That's better than Annette Funicello."

So, Tonette Tarantino is her first name ? Good to know.

Ann Althouse said...

Her maiden name.

chickelit said...

The likable part of GWB was also a Walker.

Good thing this isn't Seattle, where "brown bag" is considered racist talk:

RecChief said...

ga! the anti-quinoa, -arugala, vacation in Iberia, candidate. Love it. While Jeb and Hillary! act like they think they're royalty, and Joe acts like some inappropriate drunk uncle, Scott Walker wears his middle class lifestyle well. unpretentious. crafty. smart. no sheepskin needed.
