Ashlee Moore, a logistical aide in Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker’s campaign, really knows how to keep things classy, as she pointed out in a recent Tweet (click to enlarge):

Really? Seriously? That’s the kind of person working on Scott Walker’s gubernatorial campaign?

  1. Zach! I am betting she is really young and has no clue about the old slang. Does anyone even use that term anymore? I haven’t heard it in forever. She was probably trying to be clever and thought she was creating new twitter lingo.

  2. For the life of me I don’t understand why all these candidates throw a bunch of 20 somthings in a room and call it a campaign.

    Yes, she’s likely a twit, but I doubt she had a clue about what she was saying.

    Scott Walker: surrounding himself with greatness. šŸ™‚

    1. Totally different than the Obama campaign which didn’t have any kinds out working for them šŸ™‚

      Truthfully, there are probably two major factors at play. First, it’s the kids who have nothing better to do with their time – unemployed or at least not working full time to provide for themselves and a family (you know, the ones who still live off mommy & daddy and need to be covered by their parents insurance until age 26). Grownups can’t work countless hours tacking up signs for free. And second, the kids still think they live in an ideal world & actually believe the lies the politicians tell. Blame the politicians (on both sides) for making most grown ups so cynical that they have no interest in working on a campaign.

  3. Zach,

    Good job. No mater how old you are, you need to know HOW TO USE THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. Cindy and Locke misspelled words in their first sentences. Good example to show the 20 somthings (sic) kinds (sic).

  4. Nah. That was a typo. My fingers and my brain don’t always work on the same team.

    Besides, are you saying she was calling them “twits” instead of “twats.” Maybe it was supposed to be “twets.” “Twuts?”

    “No mater(sic)how old you are, you need to know HOW TO USE THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.”

    (I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist. Maybe you make typos, too? I wouldn’t want to assume anything. Maybe you were just missing your mommy.)

  5. This from the guy who has no problem using the term “teabagging.”

    1. You must have a loose definition of a “guy who has no problem using the term teabagging,” because a search of the blog turns up just two links to me using the term “teabagging;” this one and this one.

      In this one, I reference a “teabag” rally, but I don’t specifically use the term teabagging, so I’m not sure we should count that one.

      Here’s another one where I refer to “teabag” rallies, without calling anyone a teabagger.

      I’d argue that two instances using that term in three years of blogging hardly constitutes “having no problem using the term teabagging,” but I’m sure to you twice in three years is a heck of a lot.

      Since you seem to have no problem with Ashlee Moore’s use of the word “twat,” maybe I’ll start using that more.

      1. Well the fact that you have used it at all must mean you don’t have a problem with the word. If you did, you wouldn’t have use it at all. By the way, don’t you only have ONE instance of Ashlee Moore using this word in question?

        But my apologies to you. It was actually MadCityMan who has used the “teabagging” term far more often. Since it is on your blog, surely you must not have a big problem with it. Or if MadCity started using the word Ashlee Moore used, would you allow that too?

        1. The difference between MadCityMan, myself, and Ashlee Moore is that neither MCM nor I work for the campaign of a gubernatorial candidate. The language itself isn’t really the issue; it’s the fact that Scott Walker chooses to have these kinds of folks working for his campaign.

          After all, you can tell a lot about a person by the folks they choose to associate with (or employ).

          1. Folks they choose to associate with or employ… you mean like Rahm Emanuel?

            And yes, I know you had a post disapproving of his language too. But I don’t think you or I are basing our next votes for governor or president based on boorishness of staff.

          2. And actually yes the language itself IS the issue, because that’s what you are basing your judgement of “these kinds of folks.” I’m sure some Barrett aide has never used the word “teabagger.” Riiiiiiight.

            Last week Tom Barrett received the endorsement of Michael Bloomberg and Barrett said, ā€œIā€™m proud to have his support in our campaign…Mayor Bloomberg understands that what matters most is getting things done, not extreme politics or petty partisanship.ā€ Does that count as associating? Because Bloomberg has been accused of sexually harassing women under his employment numerous times and the EEOC filed a class-action suit against him.

          3. The difference between MadCityMan, myself, and Ashlee Moore is that neither MCM nor I work for the campaign of a gubernatorial candidate.

            NO. The real difference between the two is that in this case, it would seem pretty reasonable to assume she’s either not familiar with the negative meaning or doesn’t use it in that way since she’s speaking to he friends & followers. In the other case, MCM and others are using the word to insult people they don’t like.

      2. By the way, I never said I approved of the word Ashlee used, if she knew what the other meaning was. I was just pointing out the hypocrisy of how very similiar things are unclassy only when you want them to be.

      3. Ok, I just came back to this post and I want to tell you all, it sounds quite petty and high school. Geez you guys.
