LET'S GET READY TO RUUUUUMBLE  8:43 pm May 25, 2012

Here Is Your Great Wisconsin Recall Debate Totally Timed For Maximum Exposure

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

The one guy and the other guyHi! Did you know there is a debate tonight between Scott Walker and that other dude, someone Barrett? (Hey, if the DNC doesn’t know Tom Barrett’s name, why should Your Wonkette?) It is so important it will be preempting Book Discussions on CSpan! (It will also be streaming live, here, for you Poors and you Youngs what ain’t got cable.) Go pee, and gather your beverages, and then we will gather here and go WHY IS IT NOT ON CSPAN and click around frantically, together!

So this is exciting, how they scheduled their debate for 7 8 p.m. Wisconsinese Time on Friday of Memorial Day Weekend, Scott Walker should give his debate negotiating team ALL THE KOCH MUNEEZ.

Also! Your Wonket will be going down for “server maintenance” (as if that is even a thing!) at 10 p.m. Eastern Time. (We can not do timechange math right now, but we presume it will be one hour after it starts.) You will still be able to read (and presumably comment), but Your Editrix will be evaporated in a puff of smoke. So once Your Editrix is raptured (hopefully in the middle of THE VERY BEST PART), please consider it an Open Thread. GOT IT? GOOD! We have been drinking pinot grigiot for two and a half hours already for reals, so let us let the dogs out! Who who, fellows! *Goes to pee.*

All times will be in Wisconsinese, maybe.

8:02 PM — Look at these awesome insurance dudes. They are so Wisconsin! Haha, they want an educated and civil debate. Much luck to them! (Also: sweet staches!)

8:04 PM — Scott Walker is talking, and DAMN are we not gonna be able to truth-squad this shit, Jesus. “The good news is our reforms are working, which is why we have lost more jobs than any other state!” Good intro!

8:06 PM — Oh, good, Tom Barrett will truth-squad it for us. Whew!

8:07 PM — So, Wisconsin Nice. Is that a thing? Because Tom Barrett is doing like the opposite, all “Scott Walker is a criminal billionaire sex doll, and also too INVESTIGATIONS!” He is being negative, is what we are saying, and we are sure Cory Booker does not approve!

8:10 PM — “Our numbers are based on unicorn farts and Barbie Math.”

8:13 PM — People hate Scott Walker for being too awesome (and also too beautiful). Other politicians are all talk! Not Scott Walker! He fixed problems, which is why a million people (maybe?) petitioned to recall him.

8:15 PM — Barrett shoutout to the unions, and the prison guards! Hiiii unions and prison guards! Hiiiii!

8:16 PM — Will Scott Walker be able to weasel out of this very clear and extremely true explanation of how Scott Walker tried to cook the unemployment numbers? PROBABLY! Math. What is it?

8:18 PM — Yup. “The facts are the facts.” Contra Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Scott Walker is entitled to his own facts!

8:20 PM — Okay, hang on. *TRANSCRIBING.* What’s up, Bob Dohr, journalism guy? “Most of the last budget debate was based on the spending side of the ledger, cutting spending to bring the budget in balance. We’d like to talk about the other side, the revenue side, taxes, tax increases, tax cuts, and specifically how you define a tax increase, if a tax credit or deduction gets removed is that a tax increase? Uh, what about previous, um, spending cuts, if they get restored is that a tax increase or things like licensing fees, um, increased paperwork filing fees, if those get increased is that considered a tax increase, so I’d like to know, first of all, your definition of a tax increase, and looking ahead to the next budget, if you plan any of those.” This seems like an EXCELLENT time to go check the roast chicken!

8:26 PM — IMPORTANT UPDATE: The roast chicken is gorgeous.

8:31 PM — Here, have a Twitter from radio commie @allisonkilkenny!

8:36 PM — Tom Barrett sometimes has “sharp exchanges” (i.e. frowns slightly, looks pained, when someone fucks the goat).

8:37 PM — Scott Walker met an imaginary person once. He is so great that even Democrats can’t help coming up to him and telling him that he has NOT assfucked the state of Wisconsin. (That person was the Loch Ness Monster.)

8:41 PM — Wisconsin doesn’t even have civil unions yet? Now we haz a Sad.

8:43 PM — Lilly Ledbetter in the HOUSE! What WHAT! Your editrix was shocked the other day when one of her son’s friends (who is black) was not going to be casting his first vote for Obama, because “he hasn’t done shit.” (!) But then, when the pressure was on, the ONLY THING SHE COULD THINK OF that Bamz had accomplished was the Lilly Ledbetter Act, and the rest of her mind was totally blank. You know who doesn’t care about Equal Pay and Lilly Ledbetter? 18-year-old boys! For sure. Editrix FAIL.

8:46 PM — Sorry, wasn’t paying attention to Scott Walker. Was he lying?

8:48 PM — So take off your “Hard Democrat” hats and put on, say, your Politico hats. How are the optics here? Is Scott Walker seeming mellow and laid back and Tom Barrett seeming too ANGRY (HONORARY BLACK MAN) UNION THUG? What do you think?

8:53 PM — And Callyson comes through with the fact-check on Walker repealing Equal Pay. All hail Callyson!

8:55 PM — We are about to be bodily lifted right out of our clothes and up to join Jesus in Heaven (because Rapture). You guys lock up when you leave, all right?

I'm singing along but I'm wondering how your daughter is doing?

Barb May 25, 2012 at 8:59 pm

She's doing well, thanks for asking. She's holding the baby in and things are looking good.

nounverb911 May 25, 2012 at 9:04 pm

Glad to hear that.

Barb May 25, 2012 at 9:07 pm

Thanks, Buddy!

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 10:02 pm

Good to hear that–good luck to the family!

Barb May 25, 2012 at 10:31 pm

Thanks! I am taking my cell phone into the bathroom with me, just in case I get "the call"

Come here a minute May 25, 2012 at 8:46 pm

You silly left-coaster! Everyone knows Friday night is Politicks Night in Wisconsin.

memzilla May 25, 2012 at 8:47 pm

Say, you know which other right-wing political leader protested against recall elections… ?

C_R_Eature May 25, 2012 at 9:13 pm

Nicolae Ceaușescu?

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 10:03 pm

How I wish the answer to this question were "Darrell Issa?"

Chichikovobarb May 25, 2012 at 10:05 pm

Well, Alberto Gonzalez seemed to say "I don't recall" a lot. Does that count?

Werner_Voss May 27, 2012 at 7:34 am

Mrs. Bill Clinton said that a lot too. }:{

I think the Big Joe Polka Show is on at the same time, cutting into the Wisconsin voter audience.

TribecaMike May 25, 2012 at 8:48 pm

The more I read about Barrett, the more I miss good old pro-union party machine politics.

imissopus May 25, 2012 at 8:49 pm

Say Becks, you sure you got the times right? 'Cause Wisconsin is in the Central Time Zone, so this debate, if the internet is to be believed, starts at 8 P.M. Wisconsies time, which is also the time the server maintenance is a-startin', in like twelve minutes from right now, so that kinda kills the live-bloggin'. Which is good, you should be on your way to synagogue for Sabbath services anyway.

commiegirl May 25, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Deleted myself, because I was wrong. The server will be going down at 10 p.m. Eastern, or 7 p.m. Wonkette HQ. I don't know what translates to in Wisconsinese.

imissopus May 25, 2012 at 8:57 pm

So that will be 9 P.M. Wisconsin time, so you do indeed get to live-blog for an hour, you lucky you. And then presumably to synagogue.

nounverb911 May 25, 2012 at 9:05 pm

1973?

bagofmice May 25, 2012 at 10:26 pm

Yeah, that describes the time before web pages pretty well. Not that I was there of course, but read about those times on the Internet.

flamingpdog May 25, 2012 at 10:51 pm

You didn't miss much. Just Watergate, Viet Nam war, uppity niggras, and CHEEEEEAP weed. Also a lot of suicidal ideation- fortunately most of us thought better of it. Thank Darwin we couldn't imagine election day 1980 or we might not have.

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 8:58 pm

According to the website for the livestream the debate is starting at 9 Eastern, so I think it's 8PM Wisconsin time. It's not on C – SPAN 3 at the moment so I think it will be on in a few. Can't wait for the fireworks!

Werner_Voss May 27, 2012 at 7:38 am
Callyson May 25, 2012 at 8:49 pm

Just fired up C – Span 3. Come on, Barrett, get those boots on!

writing from WI, it looks like Walker will win…..40% of union members plan on voting for Walker……

Wisconsin, the place where you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
Wisconsin, the place where you measure distance by hours.

Native_of_SL_UT May 25, 2012 at 10:15 pm

Me and my buddy Glen used to measure distances here in Utah by how many beers we'd need.
We drank a lot of beer.

Barb May 25, 2012 at 10:31 pm

Cheers, Native!

flamingpdog May 25, 2012 at 10:54 pm

We used to measure distance here in the Sqaure State by the number of times we'd been passed by Texans on the interstate.

MilwaukeeKent May 25, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Watch Scott's eyes.

flamingpdog May 25, 2012 at 10:55 pm

I'd rather drive burning hot needles into my own.

FakaktaSouth May 25, 2012 at 8:57 pm

Oh wow. Cross country wine challenge. I know no one really challenged me, but I like to feel I am drinking for a reason other than i am seriously about to watch this. Am I really? Yes. Yes I am.

el_donaldo May 25, 2012 at 9:14 pm

I've got whiskey. Race ya.

FakaktaSouth May 25, 2012 at 9:17 pm

MAN I wish I had whiskey. AIGHT – GO!

mayor_quimby May 25, 2012 at 9:25 pm

I know what you mean, I'm doing this shit too, somehow, from GA

Yay, Sturgeon Bay, and other places I have no idea about!
And h
Barnett did accuse Scotty of 'pleasing billionaires', good job.

Ann_ObeyMe_Money May 25, 2012 at 9:35 pm

Girl you sound like you 'bout to tie one on.

Barb May 25, 2012 at 8:57 pm

We should recall Scott Walker faster than a listeria-soaked hot dog that was prepared by a man with Hepatitis-B and left on the dashboard of a Lexus that came off the factory line with faulty brakes.

Fare la Volpe May 25, 2012 at 10:14 pm

You leave Bristol alone!

Fare, my friend, you know I got a big woody for her, lol.
Twitter was trending #LousyStripperNames and I had to reply "Bristol Palin" She is my one weakness, my Achilles heel.

flamingpdog May 25, 2012 at 10:57 pm

I wish I could drink enough that I'd never recall Scott Walker OR his monkey face.

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:00 pm

It's on!

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:03 pm

Meanwhile, the ad on the right hand side is for the Geffen Playhouse's performance of The Exorcist. How very…

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:05 pm

Blue shirt red tie…does Scotty really think he is fooling anyone with the bi – partisan color choice? Tacky, dude, tacky…

FakaktaSouth May 25, 2012 at 9:06 pm

He sounds very "what the fuck do you want from me? I am awesome" If he did all of that, he would not be standing on the recall stage, no? I love Tom Barrett now.

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:08 pm

Yawn, I see Barrett is doing the same thing.

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:06 pm

I was wondering how long it would take him to get to obfuscating the jobs issue…

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:06 pm

God, compared to Scotty, Barrett looks like a mature grown up…

Barb May 25, 2012 at 9:06 pm

Scotty, I can smell the vinegar and water through the television.

Barrett looks like Fraiser's dad.

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:07 pm

Oh yeah–Barrett is coming out swinging!

Hope Obama is taking notes…

Angry_Marmot May 25, 2012 at 9:09 pm

How can we be sure Walker was born in Wisconsin?

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:10 pm

Long form birth certificate or GTFO.

Designer_Radio May 25, 2012 at 9:15 pm

He's got one of them flip-top heads, like a Canadian.

TribecaMike May 25, 2012 at 9:22 pm

There's no way of actually proving that, except for the proven fact that he was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The son of a Baptist minister, unsurprisingly.

horsedreamer_1 May 26, 2012 at 6:16 pm

You know who else is a Colorado pastor?

C_R_Eature May 25, 2012 at 9:10 pm

A sphincter Walker says what?

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:11 pm

Oh, Walker wants to talk about poverty in Milwaukee now? Wasn't this fucker an Milwaukee county exec…

…Barrett talks more quickly than I write. GO BARRETT!

Texan_Bulldog May 25, 2012 at 9:13 pm

Hmmm…when my Friday night includes watching a debate with 2 pols from WI, I might as well just stop using deodorant & start wearing pajama jeans in public.

mayor_quimby May 25, 2012 at 9:29 pm

I know what you mean, I should be out chasing hoes in ATL, but no, I'm here watching walker getting shafted for having a legal defense fund.
I am ok with it.

Who's going to believe the Bureau of Labor Statistics over Scott Walker's magic libertarian math? {yawn} Wizards vs. bureaucrats? Wizards.

Buckminster May 26, 2012 at 8:19 pm

It's all arcane and unknowable, this mathematics and statistics. Don't ya know.

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:19 pm

Asshole moderator won't let Barrett defend himself. Don't worry, soon to be Governor – elect, you'll get your chance…

Barb May 25, 2012 at 9:21 pm

Someone should ask the question:
Scott, what does the Koch brothers spunk taste like? Do they prefer for you to spit or swallow?

Chichikovobarb May 25, 2012 at 9:28 pm

Or perhaps more directly: Scott, when you believed that one of the Koch brothers – from out of state – was one the line, you spoke to him for nearly a half an hour. Can Wisconsin voters just call you up and talk for even three minutes about their concerns like that?

Barb May 25, 2012 at 9:31 pm

I loved that!
"I'll tell you what Scott, once you crush these bastards, I'll fly you out to Cali and really show you a good time."
"Thank you, David Koch!"

Baba Booey!

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:21 pm

Does Scotty have *anything* other than property tax cuts and misleading job creation stats? Sheesh…

Barb May 25, 2012 at 9:23 pm

He seems to be fond of the word "forward" It's secret code for "let's skip this recall business."

Designer_Radio May 25, 2012 at 9:21 pm

Scott wants to move this state "forward". You know who else wanted to move things forward?

YES! Stand up for Milwaukee, Barrett!

And oh yeah, hit those senior citizen issues. This guy knows who will vote…

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:23 pm

Seriously–why the fuck is this reporter asking *Barrett* about out of state contributors? And has she ever even heard of the Kochs?

FakaktaSouth May 25, 2012 at 9:24 pm

BOOM SUCK ON THAT – 70 percent of yo money is outside money dick, no one who lives here likes you! Suck it.

TribecaMike May 25, 2012 at 9:30 pm

I didn't know he had it in him. Bravo!

el_donaldo May 25, 2012 at 9:25 pm

Gotta give Barrett credit. He may not have tons of charisma, but he talks straight and common-sense like. Walker can't form a sentence without a wingnut outrage buzzword.

Designer_Radio May 25, 2012 at 9:37 pm

Yeah, but walkietalkie keeps telling his folksy lore, like how the Democrat lady told him she doesn't always agree with him, but she sure likes the cut of his jib cuz he's finally the only person ever in human history that she's been waiting for since time began that will "take on the tough issues".

Goddammit, that story makes all of us mouth-breathing morons with a proper voter ID (picture of a white guy) just want to punch the butterfly hole or slide the debit card through the Diebold RepubElector machine for Scotty!

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:27 pm

The majority of the out of state donors are giving $50 or less…

1. So, Scotty's defense is that the out of state donors are mostly cheapskates?

2. Quick, Governor, what percent of your contributions come from the 99%?

Beowoof May 25, 2012 at 10:14 pm

The majority of the money however, comes from a Big Koch.

Scott has mentioned property taxes 4 times now.

Barrett: Scott Walker is the only Governor who has a criminal defense fund. Oh snap!

I ain't drunk and I think the Mayor is kicking ass.
I hope voters are watching. I want him to move to Arizona.

Walker just told the ' I met a Dem. who supports me ' story.

Mayor Barrett can come over here to NYC and replace Bloomberg asap.

I understand they're big supporters of Free Enterprise, so that doesn't surprise me.

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:33 pm

We can be bipartisan…as long as you don't question me.

Barb May 25, 2012 at 9:33 pm

The next question should be:
Scott, are you proud of the Green Bay Packers and their Super Bowl win?
Did you know they are in a union?

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:34 pm

"We don't want to replay those battles…"

…no, we want to cash in on our ability to pull it off before public became aware of the fuckery we were up to…

Blueb4sunrise May 25, 2012 at 9:37 pm

Ouch!!!
Called Walker an attention whore.

TribecaMike May 25, 2012 at 9:47 pm

Walker's lawyers respond, "Dyuh!"

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:38 pm

Ew, Wisconsin doesn't even have civil unions? Can't wait to hear Scotty's smarmy defense of that.

Barb May 25, 2012 at 9:38 pm

They are asking Walker about gay marriage.
Governor, would you marry David or Charles Koch? Would you sign a prenup?

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:38 pm

YES! Barrett got to the equal pay issue!

Why the fuck the reporters failed to do so, grrr…

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:41 pm

Yeah, notice how Scott Walker talks about the law before 2009 and the law now. Quietly ignoring what the law was *in* 2009…

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Tuesday defended his recent decision to repeal the state's 2009 Equal Pay Enforcement Act…

These questioners aren't so bad .

Designer_Radio May 25, 2012 at 9:44 pm

This guy just fucking lies. And lies. And lies. He wants his goddaughters, esmeralda and shanequa to have equal pay, and it's the media that killed the anti-equal pay law…. I hope fact-checkers go viral on facebook with this shit, and then even that awful show that comes on after the CBS Evening News to dangle keys in front of invalids and Republicans will have to talk about what an outrageously sociopathic liar Scott Walker is.

You can slip it to the goat in Wisconsin–just don't mess with the cows.

Them Koch boys have had ol' Scotty stump-broke for quite some time now.

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:45 pm

Uh oh, Scotty tried to mess with the old people's meds? Granny won't have that…

TribecaMike May 25, 2012 at 9:45 pm

I wouldn't at all be surprised to see campaign donations to Barrett triple tomorrow. I'm sending over another 25 bucks.

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:47 pm

"If you're someone in your early 20's and you can get health insurance from your parents, that's what we're going to ask you to do"

Gee, what made it possible for the twenty somethings to do that? What was it again? Oh yeah–Obamacare!

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:48 pm

Scotty wants to get past the June 5th election and then he will condescend to govern…

…uh huh, if you say so…

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:49 pm

For those Wonketteers who can help Barrett out:

Internet hug from me to anyone who gives until it feels good…

C_R_Eature May 25, 2012 at 10:00 pm

Thanks!

Come here a minute May 25, 2012 at 10:01 pm

How about the "special" hug that mommies and daddies do?

Fare la Volpe May 25, 2012 at 10:11 pm

BAD TOUCH!

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 10:11 pm

Saving that for November…

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Nice touch for Barrett to bring up the investigation and the unreleased e – mails again…

mayor_quimby May 25, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Boom! You thought I was gonna ask you about being a criminal fuck, but instead I am gonna ask your lying ass about your schedule!
Suck on that Koch-lover!

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Scotty, will you disclose who's paying you off?

er, um, the people know where I'm at

Uh, no, Scotty, they don't know that, which is why they want the disclosure…

Answer the question, dick!

C_R_Eature May 25, 2012 at 9:55 pm

Scotty sure does remind me of Someone.

glamourdammerung May 25, 2012 at 9:56 pm

No, but…now that you mention it…yikes! Another Wisconsin Homeboy. Has anyone ever seen them in the same room?

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:55 pm

Scott Walker has never asked for shared sacrifice–he's asked others for sacrifice

Nice, Barrett, nice…

Barb May 25, 2012 at 9:56 pm

I clicked a Facebook link that spoke about Hawaii complying with the birth certificate request from the Secretary of State of Arizona. Man, there was some pure HATE in the comments.

Some man posted this:
Jeremy White · Works at Mill Supplies
all the assassins must be on strike, you would think by now someone would have stood up for the good of the country…
—————————————————
What kind of asshole says something like this?

Chichikovobarb May 25, 2012 at 10:00 pm

The kind who will be getting a visit from the Secret Service soon?

V572 Is this him? May 25, 2012 at 10:02 pm

Jeremy White, Mill Supplies. So tempting to Google this….

Barb May 25, 2012 at 10:05 pm

I fucking double dog dare ya. I would like his employer to know that he uses their company name when posting death suggestions about the POTUS. Look him up on Facebook. I'll give you Nancy's password, lol.

Chichikovobarb May 25, 2012 at 10:16 pm

Well, Mr. Google says there is a Jeremy White who works for Mill Supplies in Indianapolis as a member of their "Inside Sales Team". But I'm sure it's just a coincidence. We have no reason to believe that that Jeremy White is someone who would make what could easily be taken – by the literal-minded types who guard the President – as a request that someone make an attempt on the President's life.

V572 Barb May 25, 2012 at 10:23 pm

You must’ve already done it, you cunning little vixen.

Designer_Radio May 25, 2012 at 9:56 pm

"Scott, you probably think I'm going to ask you a question about your ongoing criminal investigations. I'm not. You may think I'm going to ask you a question about how you're a purported child molester and kitten mutilator. I'm not, everyone already knows about that, that you do those things. No, my question tonight is really about how you're a Koch Bro Jizz Jug, milking the billionaire cock of its milky, cash-y cum — in state, outta state, under drunken and drugged altered states — with a goat, in a boat… yacht, I suppose you'd call it.. Anyway, that is my question; why are you History's Greatest Prostitute?"

Blueb4sunrise May 25, 2012 at 9:57 pm

Apparently Dems in Wisconsin love Walker.

Sharkey May 25, 2012 at 9:57 pm

Is it over? Please tell me it's over.

Callyson May 25, 2012 at 9:57 pm

My computer froze during Scott Walker's closing speech…how very…

TribecaMike May 25, 2012 at 10:04 pm

His closing remarks were frozen, so your computer came out ahead.

PuckStopsHere May 25, 2012 at 9:58 pm

I want to be drinking with all my Wonkett friends too, but I had to go shoe shopping for my daughters prom. Long story, but believe me, I am a really, really good dad. Now, where's daddy's gin?

Barb May 25, 2012 at 10:04 pm

That is so sweet, hugs to your daughter and to Daddy.

PuckStopsHere May 25, 2012 at 10:13 pm

I think it would have gone better had she actually been there, but mom and me did our best. She left home earlier this week (we haz a sad) for a summer tour with a marching band, but is coming back (one day only!) for prom next week.

Barb May 25, 2012 at 10:27 pm

I hope to see a picture of her in her prom attire, please.

Go Rangers!

PuckStopsHere May 25, 2012 at 10:35 pm

Next goal wins! Watching on the CBC. Pics for sure!

Designer_Radio May 25, 2012 at 9:59 pm

Oh hell no! I'm not going to watch Al West do a commencement speech. C-SPAN is just fucking with us now.

Oh, too late. Only took him 14 words into his speech to talk about Free Enterprize!1!! and how the Gubbmint Only Takez Away Yer Wealthz. I'm spelling with zees cuz I'm gettin' that much more ignorantz frome listening to thiz.

V572 Is this him? May 25, 2012 at 10:01 pm

All right, Rachel just finished up, I got nothing till bedtime to sustain me but wine. Fortunately I have about 200 bottles, so I should be okay.

TribecaMike May 25, 2012 at 10:06 pm

And this is why Gawd gave us prosecco. Hallelujah!

Beowoof May 25, 2012 at 10:21 pm

Well I got to watch Mars Needs Moms with the grand-kids and reading the comments here, tells me that was a good choice. Now time for the red wine.

V572 Barb May 25, 2012 at 10:30 pm

For God's sake catch up as soon as you can.

Designer_Radio May 25, 2012 at 10:47 pm

Mars Needs Moms? Never heard of it… we've been on a strictly Caiou and Barbie Movies kick lately. Some of them Barbie computer animated movies are creepy.

bagofmice May 25, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Governer, we have a problem: Apparently we have laws putting lawyers into our legal system. We cannot abide this socialist impedance into our self pursuit. Please rectify the situation.

TribecaMike May 25, 2012 at 10:23 pm

The Heritage Foundation has just ordered 250,000 copies of Walker's book, "Bob La Follette: What Kind of Sissy Name Is Bob?" published by Regency Press.

They refuse to call it a sweetheart deal because, as a Regency spokesperson says, "that sounds almost as gay as 'turn the other cheek.'"

MilwaukeeKent May 25, 2012 at 10:34 pm

Loved it when the camera made Scott look small, bent over looking at his notes and scratching his nose. He looked…guilty. Of course, I have a bias.

flamingpdog May 25, 2012 at 10:47 pm

No, you're thinking of the bovine transsexual flic, Cowballs.

mrblifil May 25, 2012 at 10:56 pm

The fact that he agreed to debate is a win. He has always thrived on operating beyond scrutiny and behind closed doors. His followers are feeling aggrieved and aggravated having to stand up for him at Friday dinner and getting laughed at. He needed to show his face. His mere presence constituted a loss as far as he's concerned.

radio-of-owls May 25, 2012 at 10:56 pm

Scott Walker met an imaginary person once.

Big deal. Peggy Noonan saw a Mexican once.

flamingpdog May 26, 2012 at 3:06 pm

The butler did it!

commiegirl May 26, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Hey dudes. Sorry about that. They moved servers last night, and there weren't supposed to be any "errors." I pointed out this small "error" to them 12 hours ago. And I still can't post anything new. But I will? Maybe? Some day?

weejBarb May 26, 2012 at 3:33 pm

You can always just do a linkie like we, your minions.

/ see above OT

commiegirl May 26, 2012 at 3:45 pm

thank you! Carry on.

CivicHoliday May 26, 2012 at 4:25 pm

12 hours is a long time to fap. They must have found some REALLY good furry porn. Glad it's all fixed now!

karlamarx May 26, 2012 at 7:28 pm

We're coming down to the wire, folks. Down to the wire. I have GOT to send in my $3!

commiegirl May 26, 2012 at 8:42 pm

Weej, I believe I might have been too hasty. I think it is not you whom Barb would like restrained.

weejee May 27, 2012 at 10:34 am

You did what you felt you needed to do and I have done the same.

goodbye

commiegirl May 27, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Someone was being harrassed. I asked the person who was doing the harrassing to stop. But first I mistakenly pointed to you, because of the name change. (Which was honestly done on your part, but surely you could see why it would be an honest mistake on mine?) I almost immediately realized my mistake, and *told you* I had been mistaken.

I honestly don't understand why a quickly rectified mistake would have you still feeling put-upon, but frankly I'm feeling a little put-out that you're feeling put-out.

I do hope you'll come back sooner than later. Everyone here appreciates you.

MittBorg May 28, 2012 at 1:38 am

Please come back. I miss you.

ttommyunger May 26, 2012 at 10:56 pm

This Recall will be a good test to see if money alone can buy an election.

Negropolis May 27, 2012 at 3:30 am

This race has me in knots. Every poll has Scooter leading, mostly by very thin margins, but still leading, nonetheless. Waukesha, I will not abide.

horsedreamer_1 May 27, 2012 at 1:43 pm

The polls showing a 5% lead are in line with Rasmussen, which makes me think lot of old white people with rotary phones. At least one poll had it at 1% margin.

Also, more Dem votes in primary than Rep. & really how many Falk voters are going to stay home?

Barb May 25, 2012 at 10:26 pm

I should have taken a screen shot of that shit. I copied and pasted it, which shows in the centered dot after his name and before his company name. I don't know how to do that on the keyboard, lol.
Jeremy White · Works at Mill Supplies

Facebook probably scrubbed it for obvious reasons.

Designer_Radio May 25, 2012 at 10:40 pm

Must. Have. Screenshot!

Even if you do, in the written facebook words of a wingnut friend-of-a-friend after I posted the youtube of The Nuge shooting machine guns and yelling about Obama and Hillary, and after he'd been ranting about what an awesome dude who's charitable and takes little Make A Wish children out on nice hunting trips:

"That audio sounds altered."

I shit you not, that's what he wrote. So your screenshot is surely a communist plot, even if you do take one.

bagofmice May 25, 2012 at 10:45 pm

If you are on windows, the charmap application will give you full access to Unicode. That means every language ever, including wingdings.

PuckStopsHere May 25, 2012 at 10:50 pm

What a breakdown Barb. 4th shot went in and there goes NHL's dream final.

glamourdammerung May 26, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Uhm, "ladies" do not have penises.

commiegirl May 26, 2012 at 8:44 pm

V572, kindly change your name and leave Barb alone in the threads. Thank you.

V572 Barb May 26, 2012 at 8:59 pm

Done and done.

commiegirl May 26, 2012 at 9:10 pm

thank you, it is much appreciated. Unless that string of number is some kind of evil code.

Barb May 27, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Weejee, I hope you are reading this.
Something very serious happened here and I don't want to give the details. If you knew the underlying reason for what Rebecca did you would feel so very good. It had nothing to do with you, cross my heart. Trust me, you don't want to know how sausage is made in this case.

I could easily see why you feel the way that you do. Please, let's just all move on and have fun. The Barb names are so sweet and I am touched. It went too far and personal information about me was disclosed that is no ones business.

Let's get back to snark!

Barb May 27, 2012 at 11:36 am

I can't wait for LA vs Devils. Go Kings!

weejee May 27, 2012 at 2:18 pm

I appreciate your remarks Barb. I really do. I am also very sorry if someone went too far in some earlier posting(s).

That said, my taking a sabbatical is something between me and Rebecca and right now she and I aren't in the same phone book, much less on the same page.

Best,

weej

Barb May 27, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Rebecca did nothing wrong. I have someone here who posted a snippet of a photo of me and used it as their avatar after changing their name to mine. They also wrote a post under their own account, called my friend Actor an "idiot" and signed my name. They also said here that my husband is paid in "casino coupons." Gosh, and there was the incident of looking up my husband's parents divorce records online from 35 years ago.

Gosh, should I go on. Trust me, it gets worse. Rebecca knows about the problems and she was trying to protect me. There was no reason for you to get involved. Not everything is always as it looks on the surface. It was between Rebecca, the offender and me.

Let's get back to snark, please. Just let it go so that we can all be hap, hap, happy.

Barb May 27, 2012 at 11:06 pm

Weejee, I got got an email from the offensive person and they blamed me and called you "another casualty." and said that I, Barbara, "chased you off."

Now I must tell you something funny to get you to come here and be my buddy.

Thinking….thinking….nothing funny is happening.

All I can tell you is that I miss you so much that my misser hurts.

Chichikovovich May 27, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Hi Barb – I realize that I made a reply to your post that brought up the changed avatar that in retrospect was cringe-makingly breezy. I'm really sorry about that – I had absolutely no idea of what was happening offstage.

Barb May 27, 2012 at 7:52 pm

I just shrieked with the loudest laugh, Chich! When you posted that I knew that you didn't mean anything by it. I think that's the whole problem. Only Becca and I knew that something was wrong and she helped me out and to the innocent observer it looked bad.

I should have been more firm in the way I dealt with this and there would be a lot less hurt feelings right now.

Chichikovovich May 27, 2012 at 8:13 pm

I'm glad you recognized I was making light banter. More to the point, though, I'm sorry that you had to confront a challenge like that when you want to be able to immerse yourself in your family life. Wonkette is a place we come to for lighthearted give-and-take with clever people in a safe environment, and it's easy to forget that there's a real world behind it.—

Barb May 27, 2012 at 8:23 pm

And in my e-mail inbox the shit is hitting the fan over this crap.

weejee May 28, 2012 at 11:00 am

Barb, sorry for being so slow in responding. Mrs. weejee and I don't have the intertubes at our home, or cable teevee for that matter. We're analog oldes and rely on people, games, and books for entertainment.

I am totally stunned about V, and have deleted my post above that included 'mon ami'. You have every right to be upset.

Regards me and Rebecca, she has now deleted her misspost accusing me of stalking you, so I'm back.

MittBorg May 30, 2012 at 12:53 pm

I am SO glad to see you back, weej. I'm suffering the fallout from this too.
