Cartoonist Wanted

April 18th, 2008

I wish I were a talented and patient enough artist to sketch this for you, but I’ll have to be content with describing it.

The scene should depict four guys in suits, standing side by side. The two on the left (bearing nametags identifying them as Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett) are smiling and pointing at the Baraboo Circus Train pulling into town. The two men on the right (wearing “Business” and “Workforce” labels) are aghast and pointing at a line of various trucks leaving the state, with logos like “Famous Footwear”, USBC, Tower Automotive, etc.

A shared “voice bubble” is above the heads of all four men, who are exclaiming in unison: “Hey, look! A parade!”

    Does it also show Walker, Stone and Lazich with tape over their mouths since they did nothing to help the situation? Give credit to Barrett, at least he went to Atlanta and tried to keep the bowling congress around. Can any of the people who actually represent Greenfield (save their mayor) say the same thing?

    In order:

    By holding the line on taxation and spending to the best of his ability, Mr. Walker has done more to preserve what’s left of the our deteriorating business climate than most politicos;

    Mr. Stone is at best an ensign aboard Wisconsin’s Titanic; and

    There’s no love lost between the queen RINO Ms. Lazich and me since she threw TABOR under the bus and lied to her constituents.

    Finally, the line “at least [Barrett] went to Atlanta” is like saying “at least Ed Smith radioed the Coast Guard”. If there’s a better “too-little, too-late” analogy available, please insert it here…

    “Barrett went to Atlanta” pretty much sums up the problem. The Bowling Congress moved to Texas.
