Governor Walker Rewrites Portions of the Oxford English Dictionary!

In his discussion today with the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, covering the expansion of off reservation tribal casinos in Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker suggested that he would only approve a new casino if the other tribes reach a ‘consensus’ on permitting a new casino! Yes that’s exactly what he said but it’s not exactly what he meant…but here I’ll let him explain:

Walker said there must be “consensus” among all the state’s tribes before he would approve an off-reservation casino. The governor’s approval is required by federal law before any tribe can open an off-reservation casino.

Walker defined consensus as unanimous approval. (emphasis mine)

“Consensus doesn’t mean 10 yes and one no,” Walker said in a meeting with Journal Sentinel editors and reporters. “Consensus means everybody says yes.”

Oh Oh Oh…can we use this definition of consensus for all future deliberations in Madison?

  1. It has been a long day but I just wanted you to know this made me laugh–we truly have an idiot for a governor. Thanks for the post, and I love your blog.

  2. There are serious gaps in the education of the current Wisconsin governor, as we have all heard. Problem is, there must be quite a lot of educational gaps in the voting population of Wisconsin as well. Maybe it has all just become too complicated.
