This week Sly in the morning was mocking Rebecca Kleefisch and a story that was on the news. The original story was about Rebecca Kleefisch cold calling(yes seriously) businesses in Illinois asking them to re-locate to WI. While deservedly mocking her and the reporter for not asking any questions(like aren’t taxes are still higher in WI) he got a little carried away. WKOW story here also.
Milwaukee hate jock Charlie Sykes, must listen everyday because he is trying to take it national.
Sly actually did apologize for accusing Ms. Kleefisch of performing sexual acts on the hate talk radio jocks in order to win her primary. He did step over the line in accusing her of that(which is why he apologized) but the greater point was pointing out the strong influence that the daily hate radio mumblers in Milwaukee have in the Republican party.
He has also fallen under fire for allegedly “mocking” her cancer. That he never did and is a disingenious complaint from the right. He just pointed out how morally reprehensible she is for making it her main goal to end health care for all, while being a cancer survivor thanks to her taxpayer funded cadillac health care plan. The same thing we have pointed out before.
He also rightly pointed out how amateurish it was for MS. Kleefisch to be cold calling companies like coupon cabin dot com to ask them to move to WI. It is almost embarrassing to the state of WI to have the Lieutenant Governor doing that, and if that is the key to Walkers 68 page job plan, then he will be lucky to bring in 250 jobs in 4 years much less 250,000.
I would link to the fake outrage of the right wing cheddarsphere, but it is just too disingenious and tiring.
I personally think it was done to keep the pressure off of the disgustingly racist things that Glenn Grothman had to say about Martin Luther King.
