The Flipper fails The Gipper

Scott Walker has been trying for more than 20 years to morph himself into the next Ronald Reagan, but you can't miss the sour irony that our 'open-for-business' slow-growth state is losing a Kenosha County business that distributes Jelly Belly candy, Reagan's favorite:
Jelly Belly Candy to close Kenosha County operation, WTMJ-TV says
Going, going, gone.

Guess with Gov. Scott Walker acting like a bad monkey on Monkey Island, flinging monkey feces across the state, it must not be good if you are in the candy business.

Divide-and-conquer politics has consequences.
