After Vicki Pyzinski has spent most of the year hating on the teachers of our great state has some new targets. She spent the beginning of this week telling us how much she loathed the Police Officers and Firefighters of Wisconsin.
McKenna said this element(the people who drowned out sarah palin) was “sent there by the Madison firefighters union, you filthy rotten scoundrels, you lousy, rotten people. You are supposed to be our heroes. We hold up the firefighters as heroes … You’re not heroes, no longer.”
That ridiculous quote from Madison Fire Chief Debra Amesqua:
“My goodness,” remarks Amesqua, the city’s fire chief since 1996, after listening to segment of the including this remark (see “Filthy Firefighters” mp3). “It’s always discouraging when political discourse is reduced to name-calling. It’s really unfair that this radio host has chosen to target our firefighters and our paramedics.”
Amesqua says her department’s consists of “absolutely phenomenal people” who, as far as she knows, have not done anything to deserve such withering condemnation. She says she’s gotten no complaints from anyone about the conduct of firefighters at this or any other rally.
