While Capper weighed in this morning with his take, I needed to also post on these flurry of emails. After reading some, and going through others, and watching the news stories, and reading comments, etc.. I have come to realize that Kelly Rindfleisch, as despicable of a human being as she is, is right!
No One Cares...
Let's look at a couple examples....
• “No one cares about crazy people,” aide Kelly Rindfleisch wrote in response to an email about criticism Walker was facing from his political opponent, Tom Barrett, over problems at Milwaukee County’s mental health center.
• An email from Kelly Teelin, a paralegal at GOP go-to law firm Michael Best & Friedrich, forwarded a joke email picturing four dogs the writer said were set to receive public assistance because they “are mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and have no frigging clue who their Daddys are.”
“That is hilarious. And so true!” Rindfleisch replied.
• Walker’s top aide in the county executive’s office, Tom Nardelli, forwarded a message in brightly colored lettering about the “nightmare” of waking up “black, Jewish, gay with a Mexican boyfriend, drug addict and HIV-positive” — and a Democrat.
The night that a concrete slab at a Milwaukee County parking structure collapsed, killing a 15-year-old boy, Nardelli emailed Walker and copied Gilkes, Rindfleisch and Archer about a reporter asking about an audit showing deferred maintenance on the structure.
Gilkes responded: “We need to have that pinpointed in the audit. … This is what the press will focus on exclusively tomorrow — we will need to fully refute it with all documentation possible on it.”
Walker responded: “Yes.”
The Walker team looked at rape in a county facility, and the crushing to death of a 15 year old boy, not as tragedies, but as a pain in the ass to the Walker's political ambitions. I used to be outraged at this (see here) but now I realize they were right.
Since the horrible death of a 15 year old boy and a rape at a poorly run mental health care facility failed to move the needle in Scott Walker's campaign at all while it happened, I do not expect it to do so now.
We have thousands of pages of proof that Scott Walker and his staff knowingly broke the law, that Scott Walker was in on it the whole time, the disdain they have for anyone who is not or can not help them gain a political advantage and as a team their only objective, no matter who they were working for, was to make Scott Walker look good(no easy task).
Yet I doubt he has even dropped a point in the polls. How does a free society that values democracy and Honors our Forefathers and Founders, and goes to Church on Sunday, think that the Scott Walker we met yesterday is ok?
