Walker will need miracle to undo Molotovgate

We had a bit of fun a few days ago with Scott Walker's untutored inability to discern the difference between "Mazel Tov," a Hebrew and somewhat mainstream term for "congratulations, and the word "Molotov," which usually explosively precedes the word "Cocktail." 


What was especially amusing was that Walker's knowledge deficit was revealed by One Wisconsin in the Capital Times on the heels of one of his campaign visits to Las Vegas to woo the billionaire gambling magnate Sheldon Adelson, a major, prior Walker campaign donor, who happens to be Jewish.


Republican pols often enthusiastically and one-dimensionally solicit Jewish community support through bombastically pro-Israeli rhetoric - - but data in a Salon.com piece about Ted Cruz's fumbled ethnic entreaties also shows the tall climb Walker faces to win meaningful Jewish support:

It turns out that Jews are among the most progressive voting blocs in the country. According to a comprehensive Pew Research poll conducted last year, 82 percent of Jews believe homosexuality should be accepted by society, compared with 57 percent of the population overall.  By 54 to 38 percent, Jews would prefer a larger government that provides more services to a smaller one that provides fewer; only 40 percent of the overall population favored a larger government, while 51 percent supported a smaller one. A whopping 89 percent support a woman’s right to an abortion, compared with 54 percent of the population overall.

This is really a silly post -- do you think with the massive propaganda push he gets from milwaukee journal sentinel, wtmj-am, and the rest of the dysfunctional wisconsin media echo chamber -- this really mans "boo"?

It is so disappointing to see the same group of people promote this rubbish -- always been proven that their not only are these types of posts wrong in every case -- but always ignoring the real reason we have such a divisive governor.
