Excuse me, but as someone who is part of the evil “party”, no one told Mark Harris to sit down and shut up. You have no idea what his plans are or the strategy he might be developing for his political future. And as for the “boo-hoo no one asked ME who I want for governor” – here’s the thing: there were 41 focus groups of “regular people” held across the state and you know what came out of it? That the toughest competition for Walker would be 1) a woman, 2) who is highly educated, 3) who has a business background and is literally a job creator, 4) who has deep roots in Wisconsin and 5) is not a sitting politician. That person is Mary Burke and she will be a great candidate. Also, those who are whining that she hasn’t personally come to their house yet, FYI she has been doing meet and greets in Northern Wisconsin for weeks because that’s a key voting block for any statewide race. In conclusion, we are not idiots.
Here’s a screenshot of Kristin Hansen’s Facebook posting (click to see the full size image, which comes courtesy of Chris “Capper” Liebenthal).
Just to be clear, while point number 5 in the Facebook posting above asserted that the focus groups full of “regular people” wanted someone who was not a sitting politician, Mary Burke is very definitely a sitting politician by virtue of the fact that she was elected to the Madison School Board.
Further, my take from reading (and then re-reading the comment) is that we “regular people” who have concerns about Mary Burke’s candidacy should stop whining and crying and should just trust that the folks in the Democratic Party of Wisconsin leadership know what’s best when it comes to beating Scott Walker in 2014, because their focus groups told them how to win!
And speaking of focus groups…
