"Murphy: Right, right. We’ll back you any way we can. But what we were thinking about the crowd was, uh, was planting some troublemakers.So spake Gov. Droopy Dog Walker as he tele-fellatio-ed some blogger who he mistook for David Koch. The Gov took the call right away, no doubt well aware which side of his ass Koch was buttering. And the Koch brothers have spread enough butter around in the last election to grease multiple state and federal portals for future easy access. But it is not about the horror of having to pay a decent living wage to the people who teach our children or plow our roads. It is ultimately not about budgets but it is about money. Money buys access and if the pesky left leaning public unions are weakened enough to become minor players in any future election cycle, it will be a lot easier for the Republicans and their corporate masters to maintain control. Without the counterbalance of union money to worry about, Gov. Walker only has to concern himself with blowing his two or three major corporate donors. That's only fair, he's a busy man. He's got a lot on his plate.
Walker: You know, well, the only problem with that — because we thought about that. The problem with — my only gut reaction to that would be, right now the lawmakers I’ve talked to have just completely had it with them. The public is not really fond of this. The teacher’s union did some polling and focus groups I think and found out that the public turned on them the minute they closed school down on them for a couple of days."
