Most Popular Wisconsin Governor Ever Scott Walker Now Kvetching About Measly Salary

Help a brother outPoor Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Nobody loves him, everybody hates him, and he is stuck in government “service” instead of being off in the private sector making “real money.” Also, “Not that this job is that important to me,” he said, because at this point all he really wants in life is for a laid-off DMV clerk to just cold smash him in the nards. Audio after the jump!

Scott Walker’s salary of $144,000 is nearly three times the median Wisconsin household income. Also, Scott Walker is a dick.

    He is running head-to-head with The Situation for the title of "Most expensive Douchebag."

    • nounverb911

      I thought that was Donald Trump.

      • http://www.wonkette.com Chillatte

        He's on the panel of judges for the award.

    • Tilley

      I forthwith and forevermore declare that such personalities as this do not DESERVE to be called "douchebags." From now on, they should instead be known as "enema-bags." Thank you.

      • Angry_Marmot

        They are their own worst enemas…

  • nounverb911

    Cheer up Scott, once the voters fire you, you can collect unemployment.

    • Lascauxcaveman

      Or save them some money and resign *now*, you petulant bowl of fuck.

      [PayPaling yet another $25 to the recall folks.]

    • Robman2

      Actually, if you are fired, you may be penalized by NOT receiving EI.

    "My wife in some ways would like it if I went back to the private sector and make some real money"
    From the Mrs.' mouth to God's ears…

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Because she wants that third Caddy to pull ahead of Ofmitt.

    • mrpuma2u

      The people of WI may send you back to the private sector, where you can polish turds for the Kock demons full time.

    • pdiddycornchips

      But the rent boys would not be happy would they Scotti?

  • FNMA

    He's just sucking up to be Mitt's running mate.

    • Mr Pre-Press

      No such luck. TMittens hires busloads of contractors like Walker in one go, and the kneepads aren't sturdy enough.

  • dadanarchist

    So deluded. The Koch Brothers may be rich but they didn't get that way by being generous to The Help. And $150K is a little rich for a ball washer.

    • CrunchyKnee

      Depends on what you mean by "ball washer."

  • ChernobylSoup

    Go to hell, Walker.

  • http://wonkette.com/ Sharkey

    How about the prison-industrial sector instead?

  • nounverb911

    "My wife would like it if I went back to the private sector and make some real money"
    Walker has skills beyond sucking Koch?

    • banana_bread

      That's the only skill you need to work for Koch Industries!

  • Schmannnity

    Maybe he could get a higher salary if he had a stronger union.

    • dadanarchist

      And this wins the thread.

    This is the problem with the entire Republican party. They don't want to do the hard work of governing, but they don't want anyone else to, either.

    If you don't want the people of Wisconsin to fire you, just quit and make everybody happy.

    "….because there's nothing my wife wants more than money."

    • flamingpdog

      And here I thought she married him for his good looks and his great intellect.

    • Guppy

      Amirite, fellas?

    • Devilette

      Can you blame her? Those eyes of his are NOT for looking into lovingly.

  • Oblios_Cap

    He's making more than any other cross-eyed kochsucker I've ever known.

  • orygoon

    I have laid-off relatives in Wisconsin. Funny how the "private sector" isn't clamoring to take them on for unimaginable Amero-riches.

    • Oblios_Cap

      I thought everybody in that state knew how to make cheese. Are you saying the lamestream media has mislead me?

      • orygoon

        You can't trust that lamestream media, HOWEVER, this is a true thing: my grandparents, children/grandchildren of German immigrants, had a dairy farm. Yawn, says my audience.

        ,,,but I am NOT making this up: Grandpa was Elmer and Grandma was Elsie.

        (yes, I realize that if you are under some certain age or other, you totally don't get this)

        • Devilette

          I met Elsie at the NY World's Fair in 1964. Lovely eyes.

        • MoeDeLawn

          I believe the term you're searching for is "Bovine American"

          • Oblios_Cap

            Yawn, says my audience

            Yeah. Stop Bordening us.

  • Beowoof

    I don't know if he can make that much in Wisconsin, as after his recall I think the only job he will be able to get involves, ding fries are done.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Certainly would be nice if someone would cockpunch him.

  • DaSandman

    But there is much more money to be made servicing Koch…

  • Oblios_Cap

    Wife, huh? Is her name Lola?

  • edgydrifter

    It's not about the money, Scott. Your wife would just prefer that your humiliating failures be a little less public. The bridge club ladies have been snickering.

  • Lucidamente1

    I'm sure a commenting gig on Fox pays more than 144K.

  • Mapmonger

    Actually, I would pay good money and buy lots of popcorn to watch footage of Scott Walker being smashed in the nards, by all sorts of people:

    Scene 1: Scott Walker smashed in nards by laid-off DMV clerk
    Scene 2: Scott Walker smashed in nards by underemployed college graduate
    Scene 3: Scott Walker smashed in nards by Mister T.
    Scene 4: Scott Walker smashed in nards by an apoplectic Nick Cage
    Scene 5: Scott Walker smashed in nards by Betty White
    Scene 6: Scott Walker thrown off a bridge, fished out of the river, then smashed in nards by an entire classroom of fifth-graders, for the entertainment of their overworked and underpaid teacher.

    The possibilities are endless. This is pure Oscar gold.

      This week on Ow! My Balls!, special guest, former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker!

      • Fukui-sanYesOta

        And every kicker in the NFL!

    • http://www.storycorner.us/ JustPixelz

      IN the movie "Idiocracy" (yes, I watched it), people watched "Ow, My Balls!", apparently the highest rates show in the future. But maybe we won't ahve to wait. Your move, Scott Walker, reality TV star?

  • elviouslyqueer

    Fine, Scotty. As my grandmother used to say: Don't let the door hit 'ya where the good Lord split 'ya.

  • gullywompr

    Real / Money 2012!!!

  • OneDollarJuana

    He's about to get his wife's wish in the next election, I bet.

  • Abernathy

    Now when he talks about entitled, overpaid, lazy state workers, we'll know who he means.

  • Oblios_Cap

    I notice a lot of links to The Great Orange Satan's website. We're not going to be expected to make nice with those overly-serious numbnutz, are we?

    • BaldarTFlagass

      I hope not. For some reason whenever I try one of those links, I get:

      ACCESS DENIED
      Internet Usage is Logged & Monitored

      Why I don't get that message at this site, I will never fathom. But will not complain.

  • unclejeems

    And is it any coincidence that 144,000 days is equal to one baktun on the Mayan calendar? Or that the Jehovah's witnesses think that 144,000 people will be resurrected to spend eternity with, er, God, during the last days and everything? Or that 144,000 equals 12 times 12 multiplied by 1000, and that it was a significant number in Revelations? And that Scotty gets $144,000 a year?

    I think not.

    • Barrelhse

      Wait- you mean those Witness people get grandstand seats to watch the rest of us suffer?
      Cool.

      • unclejeems

        Sign me up.

    • http://www.gurukalehuru.wordpress.com gurukalehuru

      So, he gets a baktun of money and he's still bitching.

  • http://wonkette.com/ Sharkey

    Why do they even let Scott Wokka talk on the radio? Gotta be bad for ratings.

  • WhatTheHeck

    Jesus, Scott. Just fire some teachers and that will free up some monies for your deserving, sorry ass.

  • http://wonkette.com/ Sharkey

    Week 06, comrades!

  • fuflans

    My wife would like it if I went back to the private sector

    us too scott, us too.

  • chicken_thief

    His first act as a real money making private citizen should be to replace that fucking ugly yellow tie.

  • neiltheblaze

    I'm sure it's true – Scott Walker could be a colossal fuck up in the private sector for a lot more money.

  • tihond

    Charles Koch: "Walker does have a pretty mouth."

    • Barrelhse

      Red lik an apel!

  • Baconzgood

    “Not that this job is that important to me,”

    Not a smart thing to say with a recall impending.

    • GOPCrusher

      Yeah, I know every job I've ever hated, I've gone on a nationwide fundraising tour to help keep it.

    • anniegetyerfun

      It's pre-emptive. He wants you think that he doesn't care if you recall him, whatever.

      • WhatTheHolyHeck

        Grapes, pre-soured for your convenience!

  • CogitoErgoBibo

    And the speaker fees he makes are barely anything. Ask Mittens!

  • MissTaken

    Walker, Wisconsin Bitcher.

  • Doktor StrangeZoom

    We need more people who seek office for the salary.

  • proudgrampa

    Scott Walker is a dick.

    What? Did someone say that already??

  • PuckStopsHere

    A measley 144 thou. And a house. And he gets driven everywhere in a state car. And he and his family have Cadillac health and dental. And he gets a pension. But still, he's right. To a repube, that's all just chump change. Hell, even Mrs. "Couple of Real Cadillacs" Mittens don't think she's rich, remember?

  • Chichikovovich

    $144,000 is just the right salary: (gross incompetence x 1000)

  • GeorgiaBurning

    Walker is way overpaid. Cheaply made tools that break easily go for less than $20 on the Harbor Freight website.

  • Barrelhse

    I don't get paid enough to govern. So why should I?

  • WiscDad

    This fucksticks days are numbered

  • Arken

    I'd do his job for half that no problem.

  • Jerri

    What are you waiting for, you useless, cross-eyed chud?

  • Toomush_Infer

    "real money": Koch dollars don't spend everywhere?…

  • http://www.wonkette.com/ slowhansolo

    Holy underpaid Jeebus, I got nothing.

  • prommie

    Nobody loves him, everybody hates him? Sounds to me like its time for him to eat some worms. Dog's asshole worms, that would be good.

  • Isyaignert

    Hey Snott Walker – EVERYONE would like it if you went back to the private sector. I'm pretty sure your overlords at Koch Industries have a cushy whore gig waiting for you just as soon as YOUR ASS GETS KICKED OUT OF OFFICE!

  • annettaj

    Now how will that happen if Walker is in stripes with a roommate named Buck making twenty dollars a month working in the kitchen?

  • meatlofer

    and ROT!

  • meatlofer

    It would'vr been great seeing this asshole"s head sitting in Dahmer's refrigerator!

  • lochnessmonster

    So she may just get her wish…WI yelled RECALL!

  • spinozasgod

    I don't think he has ever worked in the private sector, he was Milwaukee county commisioner before being governer. He was asked by Marquette U. to "not return" after ethics violations during a college election he was running in….so being a politcal dick has been his thing since he was a kid.

  • grex1949

    What's he talking about, "back" to the private sector? He's only had one part-time job in the private sector after (failing to graduate from) college, selling warranties for IBM. Well, OK, they did give him a full-time job toward the end of his four-year employment (from 1990 to 1994), but from 1994 on, this pig has fed at the public trough non-stop. Talk is cheap, Walker. Get out there and show us how it's done in the "private sector", and the sooner the better.

  • ttommyunger

    Every time this fucker's name and face come up I have to wonder at the kind of voters that put him in the top job in their State. That's what really bothers me.
