This morning Milwaukee Public Radio featured two news items back to back that exemplified the hypocrisy in the Republican legislature. The announcer played it straight but I am sure someone in the newsroom understood the irony in what they were doing! I haven’t gone back and vetted every word or statement. This is just a ‘quick hit’ type of post.
First news item: legislative Republicans oppose the wind farm rules established during the Doyle Administration back in 2010 (which I am sure had plenty of exposure at the time) because we shouldn’t rush into green energy initiatives simply because we need jobs.
Second news item that immediately followed the first: legislative Republicans decry defeat of mining bill (which is less than a year old and written by the mining industry) because we need the jobs.
Don’t their heads ever hurt from hitting them on their desks so often?
