Christie’s not as big as he once was


Since no reporter will dare ask Scott Walker or Chris Christie about their scandals or their lack of respect for public workers, maybe they can ask Scott Walker this question –

Mr. Walker, how many times today while talking to Mr. Christie did you say “Why didn’t I think of that?”, so we know exactly how scared we should be for a second Walker term.

1. What’s the theory behind “respect” for me? Am I supposed to feel like Joe Biden will withdraw his respect if I don’t pony up? Is this email for women only or do they throw this “respect” business at men too? (I’m about to give you all of my money… Not.)

In the lion’s den

It was an encounter of the Third or Fourth Kind. An irascible conservative, self-confessed gun nut, and Walker supporter (all in the same corpus) appeared at a liberal-progressive-socialist gabfest on Madison’s Willy Street Friday night like a job recruiter at an Occupy demonstration.

“Hong Kong is China’s Hong Kong,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying defiantly told a news briefing in Beijing.

The unrest, the worst in Hong Kong since China resumed its rule over the former British colony in 1997, sent white clouds of gas wafting among some of the world’s most valuable office towers and shopping malls before riot police suddenly withdrew around lunchtime on Monday, after three nights of confrontation.

The dairy CAFOs are a nightmare with many rooms of horror and one wishes this were hyperbole.

One of the worst terrors is the deranged, systemic dynamic that Wisconsin’s former DNR runoff chief, Gordon Stevenson (2001-2011) terms “medieval”: Vectoring millions of tons of liquid cow manure into the aquifers and Wisconsin surface waters, including the two largest Great Lakes.
