That's Why I'm For Barrett

I've been struck by some of Walker TosaRanger's Facebook ads.
He's running ads that ask, "Who did Sarah Palin meet with when she came to Wisconsin?" I think the answer is, "Anybody who could help out sales of her book or would pay the admission."
He's running ads that claim Newt Gingrich feels that Walker is the best choice for Governor. But, then, we all know how often Newt has been right in the last 20 or so years.
He's even running an FB ad with President Obama's face on it. I suppose that everyone--even Scooter--wants to be identified with a winner now and again.
But the picture above, captured from Walker's own campaign website strikes me as a silly way to present oneself. I know that Wisconsin deserves better than Walker. You know that Wisconsin deserves better than Walker. It's just a little refreshing for Walker to come out and admit that Wisconsin deserves better. Maybe it's because, by his own admission, he doesn't believe in Wisconsin anymore.
Walker is so deeply vested in the notion that Wisconsin can't, that Milwaukee can't, that the government--we the people--can't, that he's finally admitted that we the voters shouldn't. Wisconsin does deserve better than Scott Walker. He got that one right.
