I say ‘would-be’ because Rep. Clark (who is running against incumbent Wisconsin Senator Luther Olsen in the upcoming recall election) doesn’t have the nerve to say things like the below to a constituent’s face:
Nope! Clark’s much more comfortable with waiting until he thinks that she’s off the phone, and only then playing tough-guy. Which is how people like this operate, of course. I don’t know where the character quote (which I probably mangled, anyway) came from, originally, but it’s true: the best way to find out how a person really acts is to somehow observe him or her when there’s nobody else around. Good thing that Wisconsin voters got an earful, huh?

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The New York Times had an astounding article yesterday about the lengths to which the Obama administration went to bully everyone to accept the dubious legality of their massive insurer bailouts; bailouts for which there was absolutely no Congressional appropriation. A Federal judge has already ruled that these payments were illegal, and the administration has appealed – principally on the | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES My favorite joke about government and its inanity goes something like this: A guy is running late for a meeting. He’s in his car – stuck on a single lane blacktop behind a county government truck. He can’t pass – it’s a double yellow line. Every fifty yards the county truck stops and two guys jump out of the | Read More »
