How The Ringwraiths Do Politics. Scott Walker in Wisconsin.

This Nazgûl governor of Wisconsin (Lord of the Rings reference) is facing a recall election. He thinks this is the pits because:
“Well, we’re focused,” Walker responded, “but it’s a huge distraction, not just for me, for the legislature. I mean, it’s $9 million of taxpayers’ money just to run this. Think about the number of kids we could help, think of the number of seniors we could help in our state with $9 million that we didn’t have to waste on this — this frivolous recall election.
Delicious! So very delicious if you have been following what governor Walker has actually done with taxpayers' money during his sinister reign.

Helping the children and the elderly? He probably would sell them if that helped the job-creating corporations.

Well, I may be going too far there. But knowing who funds these Ringwraiths (coughKochbrotherscough) it's pretty obvious that Walker has different priorities for the use of tax receipts than the care of the elderly, say.

He may not lose that recall election. Too many Wisconsinites (Wisconsinians?) have been mesmerized by those burning red eye holes. But he deserves to be recalled.
