Of course they do.

Comic Sans is dumb, yeah, whatever.

When a PROFESSIONAL DESIGN STUDIO uses it ... holy bejeezus. It's not "ironic". It says "Don't hire us, ever".

We'll let the comic sans slide. What's shameful is that she's apparently still a valued employee at one of the state's top law firms -- http://www.michaelbest.com/kateelin/

Is anyone really surprised that racist emails are coming out of a GOP campaign?  Really?  Is ANYONE surprised by this?

// not even a little bit.

Why would anyone want to taste Scott Walker's staff?
 
2014-02-21 04:41:36 PM
"Internet pissed by lack of taste"

Um OK. Another way of putting it is that people are tired of the Party of Outreach being filled with bigots, misogynists and xenophobes.

Walker is a Grade A tool, a dope who dropped out of college. There's plenty to hate about him without getting distracted by nerd stuff. I guess what I"m saying is...

What's worse than work emails written in comic sans? Comic sans plus a flowery background. I think I hate background images in email even more than poor font choice.

Governor Scott Walker May See Washington Hopes Dashed By These Highly Racist Emails

What? In the gop, being a vile racist butthole is a requirement!

In future GOP debates, each republican candidate will be handed a box of puppies. The race is to win the debate is determined by which one devours all of their puppies first. The first one to giggle the loudest at the screams of agony from the puppies will win the nomination.

Oh, this is the guy who almost broke the law. Whatever, just like he's almost eating your babies, almost, like, we have no proof of it yet, but there's some potentially incriminating emails that he's a baby eater. We'll be sure never to follow up and never to let you know he's NOT a baby eater, that way you're sure left to imagine that he IS a baby eater, but you didn't hear it from us! What we do know, is it's been mentioned by someone, he's blurring the lines between eating babies and not eating them, be sure to take that information with you to the primaries!

Wrong

Conducting public business via hidden email is a violation of sunshine laws

Campaign work in a public office is a violation of campaign laws and can sometimes be charged as theft in office

Plus he and his staff are all douches, which is a violation of the natural law of douches should be slapped

I love how the email complains about the dogs not speaking English, but it misspells "daddies" and capitalizes "dogs" for no earthly reason.

Scott Walker, wearing a turban doesn't make you Gunga Din - or even Korla Pandit
(who was actually born as John Redd in Missouri).  Also, did you forget that a Sikh temple
near Milwaukee - in YOUR state - was the victim of a crazed gunman in 2012?
 
2014-02-21 05:34:52 PM
I had no idea there was a way to make Scott Walker look even stupider than he usually does, but I never considered him wearing an orange turban.

After reading the extensive Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel story on the emails I don't think they provided quite the fodder his opponents had hoped they would.

JSOnline, and the people who comment there, are painfully wrong and/or biased frequently. I would recommend other sources for information.

There was a tombstone I saw at a cemetery with a comic sans quote. If it wasn't comic sans it was really close. So tacky.
 
2014-02-21 06:28:59 PM
Oh boy, that Republican humor sure cracks me up.  It reminds me of the old joke, oh how does it go, oh yeah.  One day, there was a confused baby skunk that walked up to a duck and asked, "Are you my mother?"  The duck said "I have a bill and webbed feet, I cannot be your mother," and the skunk walked away.  A wise owl saw the baby skunk and asked why he was so sad.  The skunk answered, "I don't know who my mother is, so I don't know who I am."  The wise owl said, "Well I have a beak and feathers, so certainly I'm not your mother."  The owl took a closer look at the skunk and followed, "Why yes, of course!  You're half black, half white, and have unanswered questions about your birth.  You must be Barack Obama."

I can't remember exactly how that joke went but I'm certain it was high fives all around and much merriment ensued.  Those guys just say exactly what everyone's thinking anyways, am I right?

You'd be farking amazed at the amount of scientists who think Comic Sans is an appropriate font in which to present their data.  Nothing makes me sadder than seeing a presentation of great work presented on a blue background with yellow Comic Sans font.  I simply cannot take the data seriously.

I was watching the HD stream live during the announcement... There are not enough areyoufarkingkiddingme.gif faces in the world for how I felt when I saw the Atlas group had used comic sans. My friend's twitter stream got it dead right: "Atlas is docked 3σ for use of comic sans."

Just more proof, as if any was needed, that being good at one thing doesn't imply anything about other things. She may be a quantum physicist ably directing the largest machine in the history of the world, but her presentation made my eyes want to to die... small, comic sans font and a riot of colors all over the place.

Ha ha ha ha ha! God I love conservative humor.
