Wisconsin Sen. Scott Fitzgerald Accuses His Little Lady Challenger Of Being A Puppet For Her Husband

by Liz Colville

ewwww girl cooties

Scott Fitzgerald, Wisconsin Senate leader and gross bestie of semi-Governor Scott Walker, is facing some competition in his senate campaign — FROM A WOMAN! It’s scary, but it’s true. Lori Compas, who currently works as a photographer and writer, is running in Fitzgerald’s district in an effort to get rid of Walker and his cronies in the June 5 recall election. Fitzgerald may be worried, but it’s only because he believes lil’ Lori isn’t doing a thing in her campaign, rather, it’s being run by her husband, a geography professor, and by “unions and protest groups.” “I don’t for one minute believe she is the organizing force behind this whole thing,” Fitzgerald told the Wisconsin State Journal. Clearly the geography professor husband has a better understanding of politics, because he is a man, and plus, geography. Also, Compas is FREELANCE, anyway, which is codeword for ASPIRING BABYMAKER.

“Big Fitz,” as he is for some reason known, was campaigning outside of his district over the weekend and was surprised to find that people weren’t heckling him or giving him the finger, reports the State Journal. This gave him the confidence to declare that women, and one in particular, are lazy, and that behind every so-so woman is a great man who can point to Djibouti on a map.

For the record, Fitzgerald said he doesn’t buy Compas’ Pollyanna image. He knows some people are painting the race as a David-vs.-Goliath contest. But Fitzgerald said he thinks her husband is one of the main forces behind her campaign, as well as unions and protest groups. “I don’t for one minute believe she is the organizing force behind this whole thing,” he said.

Oh, but ha, the Wisconsin State Journal is kind of a sexist pig as well, with man reporter Clay Barbour describing Compas as seeming “more encouraging art teacher than hard-boiled politician.”

Unfortunately this sweet little potential art teacher with the “chestnut hair and a permanent smile” (no mention of Fitzgerald’s gross appearance in this article, not necessary, not important!) is currently running about 14 percent behind Fitzgerald in most polls. But you know what, she has a chance, because:

The Packers-sweatshirt-and-jeans combo that used to be her campaign attire was gone; in its place was a smart, brown pantsuit. “A couple of supporters cornered me after my first listening session and said, ‘If you are going to be our candidate, you have to start looking the part,’” she said. “I have two suits now, a brown one and a navy blue one. I call them my uniform.”

That’s a relief. [Huffington Post, Wisconsin State Journal]

Ah, so it was my *hand* I should have been shoving up her ass?

I did not know that. I will have to go home and tell Mrs. SL_UT. I'm sure she will take it well.

Needs more "Great Gatsby".

actor212 May 14, 2012 at 2:45 pm

I don't know that I'd want to associate anything "great" with this Fitz. Think we can say it needs more "Ordinary Gatsby"?

sewollef May 14, 2012 at 3:46 pm

That'd be F. Scott Fitzgerald and the 'F' stands for Fucking-Asshole Scott Fitzgerald, right?

Or am I thinking of someone else?

el_donaldo May 14, 2012 at 2:10 pm

The article keeps calling Fitzgerald a "stubborn conservative." I think they're trying to find a polite way to say he's stoopid.

nounverb911 May 14, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Isn't Fitzgerald just a puppet for the Koch's?

No question mark needed.

Yeah, but he's a man. Or, so we are told…

Objection. FW said "powerful" and "woman." Thus, facts not in evidence.

How could anybody be 14 down to this guy?

tihond May 14, 2012 at 2:23 pm

His district is like Texas without the sweet BBQ or oil money.

sullivanst May 14, 2012 at 2:36 pm

His district is mostly within Wisconsin's 5th Congressional District, which has a Cook PVI of R+12. He won by 28 points in 2010, so that lead's already half-eroded. Big Mo!

Guppy May 14, 2012 at 2:48 pm

Who do you think draws the district lines?

actor212 May 14, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Lori, if I was you, I'd be worried that Fitz here is going to start drunk dialing you. I think he has a crush.

freakishlywrong May 14, 2012 at 2:12 pm

“Big Fitz” is even a bigger asshole.

LesBontemps May 14, 2012 at 2:38 pm

Sounds more like "Hissy Fitz."

Reginald_Perrin May 14, 2012 at 2:12 pm

It's ironic that a guy who has the Koch brother's hands up his ass pulling strings is calling someone else a puppet.

IceCreamEmpress May 14, 2012 at 3:22 pm

It's not gay unless their balls touch!

Also, Grot forever!

Steverino247 May 14, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Now, watch people get turned off from her campaign because she dresses professionally. "OOOH! You're a professional politician!"

And yes, some people are that fucking stupid. I've met them, usually while dressed professionally.

sullivanst May 14, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Plus, they really are stupid enough to think "she's a professional politician, so we must vote for the 20 year incumbent".

Because, balls. DERP!

Baconzgood May 14, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Brown Pantsuit 2012!

Come here a minute May 14, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Compas? Geography? Sounds bogus to me. I want to see birth certificates for the whole campaign.

Goonemeritus May 14, 2012 at 2:14 pm

You would think he would be reassured that Ms. Compas has the steadying hand of a man to help her cope when hormones get the better of her.

SmutBoffin May 14, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Yeah, and what happens when she has her menses? VOTE FITZ YOU DONT WANT SOME WO-MAN MENSTRUATING ALL OVER YOUR STATE DO YA

actor212 May 14, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Possible campaign slogan: "Lori Compas Knows The Way"

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 14, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Fitzgerald is just upset that he can't yet marry his puppet-masters, the Kochs.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 14, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Fitzgerald has a point, how dare a Democrat run with support of people behind her. He never had the support of people, just money.

actor212 May 14, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Wait. She's 14 points down and this jackass is even acknowledging her presence in the race?

Way to lose an election, blowdog!

BaldarTFlagass May 14, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Fuck that Scott Fitzgerald guy. He drove his wife Zelda insane. We had to read some of his books in high school. Bo-ring.

sullivanst May 14, 2012 at 2:52 pm

He probably is very used to hearing his name used in the phrase: Eff Scott Fitzgerald.

[Edit: I probably should've updated the comments so as to avoid being the 4th or 5th person to make that joke]

sewollef May 14, 2012 at 4:11 pm

Er, that would make me the 6th then. Damn.

It does bare repeating though, dontcha think?

“Big Fitz,” as he is for some reason known

I can tell you from experience that the guys who are known as "Big Whatever" generally are far from big…

Rotundo_ May 14, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Actually he is rather on the short side, has something of a Napoleonic complex and is a nasty little chihuahua of a man. Please excuse my comparison of Little Scooter to innocent dogs, but I do tend to call a little son of a bitch a little son of a bitch. Lori may not win but I surely hope she does because flushing the Fitzgerald and the Walker out of the Wisconsin political cesspool would go a long ways toward cleaning it up. I am sure they can get a lobbying gig anyhow and have the next batch of Little Fascists do the same dictation they have for the Koch's.

fartknocker May 14, 2012 at 2:43 pm

She's smart, well-spoken, has empathy, and another moderate person who is frustrated with Scott Walker and the Old Guard in the Legislature. If I lived in her District I would vote and campaign for her. I hope she gets enough votes to face a run-off. Old Fitz will be blind-sided.

Exhausted66 is unable to accept this award in person as he was born in Wisconsin but if he were here tonight, he would thank the academy and acknowledge BladarTFlagass who had a version of the joke a few minutes earlier.

SmutBoffin May 14, 2012 at 2:18 pm

So what if your opponent is running a geography-centric campaign, Fitz? Do you feel inadequate because you couldn't find your own ass with a map and both hands?

EatsBabyDingos May 14, 2012 at 2:20 pm

"Big Fitz, wearing his trademark snear and his eighteen inch diameter flatulating anus…" There, also fixed, too.

V572 Is this him? May 14, 2012 at 2:21 pm

"Geography professor" = "liberal" = "master conspirator." Sure, he may look like a chalk-dusted, elbow-patched U-high grad; he's really plotting the downfall of the US, and using his wife as stalking horse is just the kind of evil trickery they embrace. A brown pants suit!

Everyone knows that geography has a liberal bias, except when it's used to determine representation in the US Senate.

SayItWithWookies May 14, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Funny how people working for the ALEC lobbyists' agenda are always seeing conspiracies behind every curtain.

I am confused. Does this mean that I am not a woman because I have a degree in Geography?

Like women go to school for any degrees other than their M.R.S.!

YasserArraFeck May 14, 2012 at 2:55 pm

You do realize that they only gave it to you so you wouldn't get all weepy/uppity/whiney when the menfolk were legitimately getting their degrees?

No, but it probably means you are unemployed, or a geography teacher.

Yes, but it seems of late many of our most prominent assholes share that name. It was popular for a good stretch many years back, and like the big chunks rise to the top of the septic tank, they have reached the apexes of their careers as assholes. Fortunately not all the assholes are Scotts, as there are exotic varieties such as Reince, and a host of others.

OT, but known media whore* Howard Kurtz has brazenly attacked our pretend girlfriend Tamron Hall for her takedown of Tim Carney last week.
_______________________
*For years he wrote "media criticism" while on the payrolls of both WaPo and CNN. Plus he did half an hour on the tweets of Mariel Hemingway.

spends2much May 14, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Howie Kurtz is as relevant as Bristol Palin, and about as smart.

Redhead May 14, 2012 at 2:49 pm

By Mariel Hemingway, do you mean the amazingly idiotic and self-absorbed granddaughter of the great Hemingway, whose memoir I threw against the wall so violently I was (sadly) then unable to return it for a refund (and which then made me want to kill kittens just so I could throw their dead corpses at Mariel Hemingway, who should be hanging her head in shame that she ever ever ever thought two seconds about putting the Hemingway name on the steaming pile she called a book)?

Someone actually paid attention to her TWEETS? Stone him!

V572 Is this him? May 14, 2012 at 3:12 pm

That's her! Howie was helping shill her cookbook. The transcript is out there, if you want to read it.

Did you throw A Moveable Feast against the wall? It's pretty good, or so I thought. If it was some twaddle drooled to a ghostwriter by Mariel, then wall-flinging is too good for it.

Redhead May 25, 2012 at 11:52 am

NO!! I absolutely love A Moveable Feast. I threw Mariel's memoir against the wall. Comparing those two books is like comparing W to a rancher/cowboy, or W to a an athlete…

Rotundo_ May 14, 2012 at 2:53 pm

It's Kurtz, possibly the second biggest joke in "media criticism" ever spawned after Brent Bozell. Tamron should take this as a merit badge. If you have afflicted the comfortable you must be doing something right.

She's definitely doable.

But, I thought the GOP was all about how politicians and government are evil, and you should only elect folks that have no background in politics. Oh, yeah, she's a heathen ART teacher, and a woman, so, yeah.

The Packers-sweatshirt-and-jeans combo that used to be her campaign attire was gone; in its place was a smart, brown pantsuit. “A couple of supporters cornered me after my first listening session and said, ‘If you are going to be our candidate, you have to start looking the part,’” she said. “I have two suits now, a brown one and a navy blue one. I call them my uniform.”

But, honestly, how disconcerting and digusting is this bullshit? Oh, Wisconsins! :(

ttommyunger May 15, 2012 at 9:03 am

"Big Fitz" is just easier than using his full nick-name: "Big Dumb Cunt".
