A judge in Wisconsin’s Dane County has struck down the Scott Walker/Koch Brothers’ anti-collective bargaining law, which means Wisconsin will once again become a luscious workers paradise and all the mean old Tea Party people will be rolled off cliffs, in their wheelchairs. (No, wait, it’s the Republicans who will push all the old people off a cliff, to “fix Medicare.” We are still new here.)

The Journal-Sentinel reports today:

Madison – A Dane County judge has struck down Gov. Scott Walker’s legislation repealing most collective bargaining for public employees.

In a 33-page decision issued Thursday, Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi said she would freeze the legislation because GOP lawmakers on a committee broke the state’s open meetings law in passing it March 9. The legislation limits collective bargaining to wages for all public employees in Wisconsin except for police and firefighters.

Scott Walker was seen collapsed in a corner of the capital building, in a puddle of his own pee, while the Koch Brothers stood by tenderly wiping up his mess with Brawny-brand paper towels, which they make by killing America’s public forests. [Journal Sentinel]

    Now if we can just have judges rule on unions in the private sector. But I'm not holding my breath.

    "Scott Walker was seen collapsed in a corner of the capital building, in a puddle of his own pee, while the Koch Brothers stood by tenderly wiping up his mess with Brawny-brand paper towels"
    At least the Koch's are cleaning up their own mess for once.

      Give Charles & David credit: they did this once before, when Fred, Jr., & li'l bro Billy (superhero name: The Yachtsman) tried to take the family business back & make it less a political instrument. The middle sons got that squared, right away.

  • SorosBot

    Sadly there's still the Wisconsin Supreme Court and Walker's illegitimate election-stealing chief justice.

    • horsedreamer_1

      The Chief Justice is a left-friendly (but prolly not terribly lefty) named Shirley Abrahamson. She is the one of whom David Prosser, Walker's Toady, said, "She's a total bitch!"

      • SorosBot

        D'oh, for some reason I mixed up who was Chief.

    • James Michael Curley

      With a lower court issuing such an extensive and public opinion said court is fairly certain the court above will not hear an opposition. If the lower court were doubtful their decision would stand they would usually avoid going out on a limb by filing an opinion.

  • x111e7thst

    The Koch brothers have never tenderly wiped anything except perhaps their own asses on silk handkerchiefs moistened with the tears of starving children.

  • neiltheblaze

    Guess the Koch Brothers are going to have to amend their timetable for world domination by at least a few months.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Poor Scott Walker — all that time and effort convincing half of America that he was an odious chiseling lying bought-and-paid for scumbag, and not a damn thing to show for it. Paul Ryan sends his condolences.

  • mavenmaven

    I guess its now time for Scott Walker to resign and run for President.

        This would lead me to pursue the option of Johnny/Walker.

    Damned activist judges!!!

  • glamourdammerung

    because GOP lawmakers on a committee broke the state’s open meetings law in passing it March 9.

    And why are there no fines, jail time, etc.?

    • DaRooster

      Good one!

  • JustPixelz

    "Scott Walker was seen collapsed in a corner of the capital building, in a puddle of his own pee."

    This is news, why?

    • neiltheblaze

      I find it life-affirming.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Call me when it's voters' pee.

  • OC_Surf_Serf

    I dunno…the Koch brother 's are the one's showering everyone with their pee

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      That's caled trickle-down economics. S'posed to be good for you.

      • Arken

        They don't call it a golden shower for nothing.

    What does Florida have to do with anything?

  • KeepFnThatChicken


    You're only voting us down by saying "No," when in reality your pussy hate-filled antics can't do dick against the activist judge who just donkey-punched your governor hero.

    Also, remember that while you're visiting Wonkette, we'll never reciprocate because none of us give a good goddamn what you filthy bitches are saying on Breitbart, because integrity ain't cheap.

    Doo. Dah. Dippidy.

    • Goonemeritus

      What he said!

    • Guppy06

      I'll bet money that it's one of the editors, just trying to keep the commentariat agitated.

    • BornInATrailer

      Describing this reversal as the judge donkey-punching Walker should produce a plethora of pee points.

    • glamourdammerung

      I occasionally go there when we get their trolls to see how long it takes me to find said troll advocating racism and/or violence. I think two minutes is the record, but in fairness I did leave and get a soda from the fridge during that time.

    • ttommyunger

      Never paid attention to Trolls, never visited Breitfart's site. Am I the only one giving them what they deserve?

      • ThundercatHo

        No, ttom, you're not. I don't know how to see/find trolls and I've seen enough hatred and racism to not be curious enough for a visit. BTW, you have mentioned the Patriot Act in at least 2 posts. Why do you think this violation of our civil rights is being allowed by our dem. senate and pres? What can be done?

        • ttommyunger

          Information is power and Governments always seem to want more power. We can support in every way possible those Congressmen who speak out against this insult to our Constitution.

  • BloviateMe


    I foresee Walker's evening being filled with kittens, a gunny sack and a ball peen hammer.

    • Negropolis

      That's like a sociopath's emergency kit.

    I owe you a shot…

  • user-of-owls

    Walker's flying monkeys are already drafting his next landmark bill:

    "The Restore Justice By Hanging All The Judges Act."

    • horsedreamer_1

      Most judges were once lawyers. So, this solution is classy as they come: pure Shakespeare.

  • SmutBoffin

    There's nothing really stopping the Rs from passing the law the "right way" at this point, except perhaps that they are now a gun shy. Who'da thought that the working people would stand up for themselves? Bullies never do.

    • horsedreamer_1

      The Fitzgerald Brothers are at a railroad crossing freeway overpass twirling their pedo-staches as we speak. They will have their revenge.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        "Curses! Foiled again!"

    • glamourdammerung

      Actually, one of the Fitzgeralds made some noise about how they were not going to do it the right way as this was legally solid despite being blatantly illegal. Though the rumors were that the lockstep was broken once they realized how badly they screwed this one up.

    Careful Judge Sumi. You could end up like Jack Woltz in The Godfather, only instead of a horses' head, you could wake up in bed with a 100 pound block of overripe Limburger.

    • horsedreamer_1

      That last, in Wisconsin — we call that breakfast.

    • Rotundo_

      Overripe Limburger? The word is *aged* sort of like John McCain's ass crack is *aged*. In the case of Cheddar, it is sharp, unlike John McCain's ass crack. There is actually a bar in Monroe Wisconsin that serves Limburger from the only plant in the US still making the stuff, it's nearby. I think it's served on buttered bread with a slice of onion as an option. I have had the swiss on rye there, but never wanted contact with Limburger. I think it would scare the hell out of Listerene. Even original recipe Listerene.

      • Arken

        My grandfather loved limburger. My grandmother made him keep it in the fridge inside multiple plastic bags sealed with rubber bands and he was only allowed to eat it outside.

  • JoshuaNorton

    Silly judge. Hasn't she ever heard of The Devine Right of Recently Elected Republican Political Hacks?

    They speak for the people, Well, 2 of the people anyway.

    Downfist troll is just against Wonky's anti-interspecies-sexxxing-up policy. Those pig fuckers gotta stick together or it's all over for them. In the coming libertarian world you WILL be able to marry a horse!

  • cheaphits

    What we need now is for it to be revealed that Walker has fathered a little Dirt Devil with his Hoover vacuum cleaner…that would make the daily double..

  • pinkocommi

    It is refreshing for the Republitards to not get away with it when they cheat. For once.

  • freakishlywrong

    Say it with me, Wonkateers: FFFFUUUUUCCKK YEEEEWW!

  • metamarcisf

    This prescient and much needed law revoked? Let's see, it only took rampant physical violence and countless murders on the part of cheesehead union thugs and yet another activist lesbian judge with bad hair to overturn it. When God (Thaddeus McCotter) is elected president, everything is gonna get back to normal. What happened to my shards?

    Brawny.. yes, that's what I think of when the Koc* Bros name comes up…

    The wheels of Gouda's justice grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine.

  • Dudleydidwrong

    Public humiliation and scorn? Then let's get back to stocks, pillories, and tar-and-feathers. Worked in those "good old days," didn't it?

  • Buckminster

    Good, walker can suck it.

  • Callyson

    From the Journal Sentinel article:
    The open meetings law says 24 hours' notice must be given for most public meetings, but two hours' notice can be given for good cause. No one who testified said any reason was ever given for why the committee had to meet on short notice.
    Senate staff testified they posted announcements about the meeting on bulletin boards in the Capitol and sent emails to legislators about it some time after 4 p.m. – less than two hours before the committee was to meet at 6 p.m.
    And they want to complain about activist judges interfering with decisions made by "democratically elected branches of government."
    The scary thing is some of them probably do not see the irony here…

    Hey, at least they're cutting down American forests. I suppose you'd prefer it if we cut down Chinese forests, you commie?

  • ttommyunger

    So far this has all been great news for… guessed it-the Lawyers.

  • Trinket

    This is so fucking fabulous it almost makes up for the loss of Jack.

    (Not that you aren't doing a fine job, Wonkette Jr.)

  • ChapterUndVerse

    Happy face about the ruling.
    Sad face about the reasoning.

    I'm no lawyer, but it sounds like she froze it on a technicality. If the ruling was 33 pages of "your knowledge of law sucks and you are definably psychopathic for trying to do this to people," at 54 lines per page, that would be a joyful thing.

  • fuflans

    brawny paper towels totally suck. they are not worthy of cat barf which is all i really need paper towels for.

  • MinAgain

    Ah, yes…the Sunshine law. It always sounds like such a happy statute.

  • SarcasticNymph

    (shocked look) Those laws only apply to Democrats! Not Republicans!
