Back at my favorite boîte, in a dark back booth I was scanning the news clips of the week and watching TV while waiting for lunch. Greg Gutfeld’s take on the Wisconsin recall election made me laugh out loud:
“The media wanted Norma Rae, and got On the Waterfront, instead.”
The entire week was full of things like this, signs of a campaign on the rocks.
–SNIP– When they got to Wisconsin, the whole table was disconsolate. “‘Double Down!’ that moron Rich Trumka said, ‘Double Down.’”
“Yeah, we doubled down all right. We worked together with Mr. Double Down Trumka on getting out street protestors. We worked on occupying the state capitol, harassing the Governor and legislature. We ran off and hid in Illinois to block the Walker initiatives. We went all in for the judicial elections ,backing an utter twit, and then challenged them and demanded a recount which we were sure to lose and we lost again. And then, the most beautiful thing of all,” the operative said, choking on the words, “we worked our butts off to get a recall election. Went house to house, Canvassed. Got thousands of names on petitions — many of them phony but still names on a petition. We called to get out the votes, and Walker wins again. The Wisconsin GOP controls the state house, the supreme court, the house, and while it might possibly have lost the majority seat in the senate, that body’s not meeting again until next year when they surely will regain control of both houses again. Double down. Now Double Down is out of money for the 2012 election there and the White House who told us to work with him expects us to get more money from a state where they think we are profligate campaign spenders and idiot sore losers. Good luck with that. Even my first grade neighbor pointed at me and laughed when I took down the Barrett signs on the front lawn. Kid even handed me a Walker button.”
