You can't march in a landslide, silly.
The landslide will bring you down.

I was reading the JSOnline comments for this article and it's amazing how delusional some people are.

There were several commenters who claimed that Burke is sinking and Scott is rising, when a quick perusal of past polling data on realclearpolitics.com demonstrate that the opposite is true.

Three statisticals:

1. 30% of Barrett voters for Walker
2. 1 in 7 undecided
3. Silent majority

Walker wins. You guys are gonna be sooo pissed off.

That was an awesome bit of parody.

That's because Walker is GOP presidential material.  Why would he want to retain his governorship when he can jump in the clown car for a fun ride into fun town with lots of fun self-contained bubbles and feedback loops and extra long corn dogs on a stick thrust into your mouth all day and night?

That is because the polls forgot about the bag of uncounted votes that will miraculously turn up at the last minute.

Considering how Walker has tried to suppress votes keep election clean from fraud by requiring state IDs and reorganizing DMV locations, I am impressed he is doing so well considering all of the bad press he has received.

No way he doesn't win again. No students at any university in WI will be able to vote. The rural counties love that he is a huntin, harley driving, brown bag lunch eating regular college dropout just like them. Nevermind he is screwing over the state and there are no new jobs over minimum wage. He's not a dirty Madison LIEBURAL who voted for that n *bong* OBUMMER. And seriously, there are 100's of thousands of people that believe that and will make sure that they vote. I feel bad but I dont live there anymore and it sucks that they dont see whats going on.

Scott Walker looks like a metrosexual Frisch's Big Boy. And he's an asshole.

Not POTUS material.

If I were anywhere near Wisconsin I would be canvassing against Walker. Well, that was an easy donation.

At what time did dismissing an insightful comment as "parody" become a valid substitute for logical refutation?

When Mr. Walker is re-elected, discussions such as this will be deleted to enable the illusion that it never existed.

From what I've seen, Walker only THINKS he's Presidential material. I don't have him as gaining much of a foothold in the GOP primary. He won't even make it to New Hampshire; he's going to come up lame in Iowa, maybe even the Iowa straw poll, and get hounded out for it because he's from the next state over and it's something he'd be expected to win or come close to winning.

If he had them, they would just be dragging on the... Nike symbol he's apparently running over?

Also, I'm not clear on his message. If America was well and truly dead (by "suicide), and he and those who agree with him "take back America," does that make him a grave robber? Or is he a necromancer, creating an undead nation? It's all so confusing.

It's Marine Todd's truck. It only reads like batshiat gibberish to Liberals because they lack the Patriot gene, and that's how he knows who to shoot and who to befriend/ensexulate.  Puzzled, furrowed brow: dead. Enthusiastic smile: alive. For now.

Yea...i remember that but that damn dirty liebural muslin Fartbongo is going to go house to house, hunting camp to hunting camp stealing all their guns.

For fun I asked a person who believes Obama is coming for his guns. I asked how he was going to do this. He's had 5 years and hasnt done it yet, dont you think he would have done it by now.  He then said how Obama is going to make the military go house to house to round up all the guns and force Islam on people. Me: so..........in this time of information leaking online, how is he going to SURPRISE! show up on my doorstep to get my handgun and make me stop eating bacon? Him: he has a crafty tongue. the bible says satan is a good speaker. You should repent and make jesus your savior because Obama/Satan has poisoned your mind and soul. Me: I'm drunk but that is farking retarded.

That reminds me, is that Brown County clerk still there who, somehow, manages to deliver voter turnout rates of 80% or better based on ballots counted vs. official number of registered voters? In elections where every other county in the state is lucky if they get 40% turnouts?

That's a thing? I've only lived in Brown County for a little over 5 years, so it's possible I'm missing some backstory, but this is the first I've heard of that.

Although anecdotally when I've gone to vote, it's usually been busy at my precinct, so.

I wish Burke's campaign would take the glove's off and start playing hard ball.
 
2014-07-23 09:51:27 PM  
You know they say all candidates are created equal. But you look at Scott Walker and you look at Mary Burke and you can see that statement is not true. See, normally if you go one on one with another candidate, you got a 50-50 chance of winning. But Walker is corrupt and he's not normal. So you got a 25 per cent - at best - to beat him. And then you add Brett Hulsey to the mix, your chances of winning drastically go down. You see, the three way at at the 2014 Wisconsin Governor's election, Mary's got a 33 and 1/3 chance of winning. But Walkers a 66 and 2/3 chance of winning cause Brett Hulsey KNOWS he can't beat Walker, and he's not even gonna try. So Mary Burke, you take your 33 and 1/3 chance, minus the 25 per cent chance and you got an 8 and 1/3 chance of winning at the election. But then you take Walker's 75 per cent chance of winning if it goes one on one and then add the 66 and 2/3 per cent chance, he's got a 141 and 2/3 chance of winning at the primary. See Mary, the numbers don't LIE and they spell disaster for you at at the election.
