Rebecca Kemble of The Progressive took some very interesting video of Department of Administration Executive Assistant Wendy Croomer trying to justify having the fascist Capitol Police Chief Dave Erwin take over the control of the State Fair Police:
My, she is stammering a lot! I suppose it could be nerves. After all, the stuff she was trying to peddle reeked more than the cow barn on Day 10 of the Fair.
The reason Walker is pushing for this has nothing to do with more efficient use of staff, as if having a police chief trying to handle troops 75 miles away is even remotely efficient.
The real reason Walker wants the stormtroopers to pick up the cream puff patrol is because he wants to be president. And, as I'm sure the gentle reader has picked up by now, Walker is all about image because he has no substance. But even this college drop out is savvy enough to know that something like this won't help his image at all:
It would be interesting to see Erwin try to send his troopers to all those people's homes after the fall of night in order to give them citations for exercising their Freedom of Speech.
I wonder if Erwin will also demand that anybody going to State Fair will need a permit before being allowed to do so.
We've not gone to State Fair for the past few years, mainly because we can't afford to anymore. I think this year we might save up our pennies in order to go. It promises to be rather entertaining, and that's not even with the booked stage acts.
