Instead of waiting for the year end lists, I thought I would name my Turkey of the year. There is lots of competition but the one I have decided on is Rebecca Kleefisch!
Ms. Kleefisch ran in a fairly crowded field for Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin on the republican ticket. By all accounts. she was accessible and talkative during the primary race. She even beat Madison insider and party favorite Bret Davis. Once she secured the nomination, either by her choice or Scott Walkers, she immediately disappeared. She did surface sometimes from her underground bunker to to hate on gays even throwing her uncle under the bus to cement her position with the base. She also took time out from fighting cancer, to make sure make sure others are unable to get the treatment she has had. Kleefisch also campaigned on an over the top Christianity, (apparently Jesus told her not to debate).
So for her abhorrent view on healthcare, her ducking of debates and voters during election season and her hatred and lack of any specifics, I give Rebecca Kleefisch the Turkey of the Year, even if she has a mini van!
Happy Thanksgiving to all, who is your turkey of the year?
