It started out a couple of years ago, when he started to fixate on his lust for blood and phallic symbols when he wanted to start shooting everything in sight. It got so bad that Big Bird had to go into the witness protection program for a while.
A few month later - in an incident that would become a sign of things to come - Kleefisch went to bat for Herr Environmental, who had dumped toxic amounts of raw sewage onto fields close to people drinking wells. Walker's DNR was already downgrading the situation to a slap on the wrist, but that was still too much for Kleefisch, who wanted to let bygones be bygones. The fact that the owner of Herr Industries was a big campaign donor to Kleefisch and his wife was just "coincidental."
More recently, we learned that Kleefisch feels that he is above the laws he helps to write when he was busted for a hunting violation. You know that this isn't the only time he's done something like this.
Kleefisch isn't just physically lazy but intellectually lazy as well. He showed us this when he got caught plagiarizing quotes from congressman. Even more problematic, he had to rely on Ashlee Moore - you do remember Ashlee Moore, don't you? - to resolve the mess he created.
Just days ago, we learned that Kleefisch was catering to millionaire Michael Eisenga, working directly with Eisenga to write a bill that would lower Eisenga's child support payments. As with Herr Environmental, the fact that Eisenga was donating to Kleefisch and his wife was, I'm sure, purely coincidental.
This last incident is so embarrassing that fellow Teapublicans are trying to quietly slink away and put as much distance between themselves and Kleefisch as they can. These fleeing Teapublicans include Paul Farrow and Leah Vukmir. And if you can embarrass Vukmir, you know you have really screwed up. This is a woman who wrote a column stating that ALEC is actually good for us. She has no shame.
Some have been calling for Kleefisch to step down, which is something that is not going to happen voluntarily. Some have called for Kleefisch to be investigation. But that won't happen until under J.B. Van Hollen. It would have to wait until at least Jon Richards wins that seat.
But there is a way for the state, and for WISGOP, to rid itself of this man.
And the perfect candidate to primary Kleefisch would have to be someone who is familiar with politics and someone who could pull up the necessary votes to win in such a crazy and dysfunctional part of the state.
And gentle reader, there is such a candidate.
Her name is Kathy Nickolaus. Hey, she is looking to get back into politics and with her math skills, she would be a natural fit with Walker's budget. She already lives in that district and so won't have to move either.
And wouldn't such a race - one between the corrupt and the inept - be the perfect analogy for today's WISGOP?
