When the history of Wisconsin in 2020 is written, will we ever learn the identity of the hacker(s) with regular access to the GOP's messaging apparatus, who, in the face of Wisconsin's brutal and escalating COVID realities
kept supplying key Republicans with ideas and materials that allowed mainstream reporters to produce stories with these actual quotes or headlines:
* Like first example back in April:
Republican Assembly Speaker wears protective gear while telling voters they are "incredibly safe to go outside.
* Then GOP State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald's miscalculated dismissivemess in August about the value of mask-wearing when the fast-spreading virus was already rampaging:
“I think things are going well right now. People are complying if they want to.”
* Along with this month's "'believe me, there aren't a lot of smart people" in state government,' uttered by State Sen. Duey Stroebel.
* And now the latest jaw-dropper reported Tuesday starring WI GOP State Rep. and Assembly Health Committee chairman
Joe SanFelippo, (R-
West Allis Indifferencetown):
Rep. Joe Sanfelippo, who heads a health panel, contends there is nothing more the government can do to fight COVID-19
There has to be at least one mole inside the Wisconsin's Republican's servers who is pumping out talking points worthy of The Onion Hall of Fame because no group of professional politicians could keep attracting so much self-destructive media without a lot of help.
And if these GOP legislators are doing this on their own, maybe Duey Stroebel is more accurate than he knows, and shame on me.
