Give Alberta Darling a coveted OrwellianSpeak Award

The long-time GOP State Senator from tony River Hills, and current co-chair of the legislature's budget-writing committee- -

"I think he loves Wisconsin so much that he felt that if some of the members on the board feel like the group would be better off if he would not be the chair ... I'd say that's leadership on his part," said Joint Finance Committee co-chair Sen. Alberta Darling, R-River Falls. "He feels that he is a factor that's not contributing to constructive dialogue, and he knows that chemistry has has to be changed. I give him credit for doing it, so let's see what happens."

Darling: That's leadership... hmm, when things get tough good leaders get out?

Especially if you love your followership?

"Preposterous" is now my favorite word for Scooter's run....

Chemistry of change? It's called botulinum toxin.

Pretty soon Walker will demand that they call him "The Dear Leader."

Alberta had to put Walker's WEDC departure into simple terms for us so we could understand the context of the situation. Some of you may confuse this with Barbie Speak. Not the case. We all know that Alberta Darling is one of the best and brighest Republicans in the Legislature. Why else would the Republicans put her in charge of the powerful and important State Budget Committee?

Talk about sacrificial love! The quasi deification of Walker continues. For Scott so loved the world...

Once again twisting every negative Walker does into a positive just to fit the rhetoric. Leader's don't quit. They push on in search of a solution to problems. This fits Walkers MO though, when the going gets rough, withdraw, get rid of it, or dump the mess onto someone else. Big and bold my you know what. More like duck and run.

This guy wants to be the Commander in Chief. Wow! The military would consider this desertion while under fire. He has graduated from simply being AWOL for his responsibilities in Wisconsin as it's Governor.

RonF,

Dear Leader.

I snorted my coffee.

"He feels that he is a factor that's not contributing to constructive dialogue..."

I have nothing to add.

David Mihalyi, you took the words right out of my mouth. Why bother with "Dear Leader" when "Beloved Savior" is up for grabs in some circles? Aim high! There will always be plenty of sheep willing to baa baa baaaaa their approval... well, at least enough to look like a lot if the camera angle's right...

"A Factor That's Not Contributing To Constructive Dialogue"

Is this the title of his next campaign book? It should be!
