Fiscal Conservatives and Government Golf
You heard it here first. The secret weapon in the Republican gubernatorial primary could be the golf courses of Milwaukee County.
County Executive Scott Walker manages a mega-bureaucracy and a wide range of services for the good people of Milwaukee, including golfing opportunities. I think Republican activist types would love to hear the Walker radio ads pitching the many County-owned golf courses. The smart guys in Walker's office have allowed him to do these wrong-headed ads for years. While Republicans may like golf, Republican primary voters aren't likely to be all that impressed with government golf. Scott, are you really for limited government and how do government golf courses fit into that picture?
Of course, Jim Doyle's idea of government includes everything from golf courses to Wal-Mart, so these goofy ads wouldn't be a problem in the general election.
So Jim and Bruce, here is your challenge -- track down all of those commercials and have them burned before it's too late! If you don't, evil schemers might put them on a CD and give them away at the Republican convention.
And don't even try to explain, it will only make things worse. What are you guys waiting for? Hurry!
I like those ads and I'm a Republican in Milwaukee County. Trust me, if you had been here when Ament was in charge, you would love Walker no matter what he does.Post a Comment
