Wisconsin update: Are all Wisconsinites named Scott total jerkwads?
So, earlier today, Wisconsin Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller said he wanted to talk. After 18 days worth of holding out, it’s become clear that the MIA Democratic senators want to go home – but they want a deal, first. And that’s reportedly tough to come by. ”I have personally called Senator Fitzgerald and the Governor and his office on a regular basis but have not received return calls,” Miller told the press today. Miller meant his statements as an olive branch, but they weren’t necessarily taken with much love in mind. A recap:
- guv’nor Scott Walker says he’s actually talking to the cell-phone-wielding legislators ”I called one of these senators myself (Monday morning). It could not be more abundantly clear how serious we are about getting this done.”
- majority Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, who has talked with Senate Dems in person, was pretty blunt. ”I hope you are enjoying your vacation, and your vacation from reality.” What is it with Wisconsinites named Scott? Pricks.
- Dems The Senate Democrats aren’t on some sort of unified message here. Some claim that no compromise talks are in the works; others say that the end is near. We say that the state needs a compromise, stat. And a good one. source
