I’d like to congratulate Jill Bader, the Communications Director for Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker, who was named “The Worst Person in the World” on tonight’s “Countdown With Keith Olbermann” for a tweet she made earlier today which linked to President Barack Obama’s purported response to an anti-high speed rail website set up by Walker’s campaign. Here’s the tweet in question:
Interestingly enough, the link in Bader’s tweet didn’t send readers to HotAir.com to read some pithy critique of the plan to build a high speed rail line between Milwaukee and Madison, but instead it linked to a video of a group of largely African-American dancers dancing to “C’mon’n Ride It (The Train)” by the Quad City DJ’s. Shortly after Bader’s tweet, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin issued a press release attacking the racial undertones of the tweet, and not surprisingly, Bader offered an “explanation” for her tweet, chalking it up to a case of mistaken linking.
However, thanks to her tweet, Jill Bader can add being named one of the “Worst Persons in the World” by Keith Olbermann to her resume, as she was given that honor during tonight’s broadcast of “Countdown.” Considering Jill Bader’s in charge of Scott Walker’s campaign communications, she should try to do a better job of communicating without making a complete horse’s hind-end of herself.
