How's That "Throw the Crooked Bastards Out" Taste Now, Tea Party?

Ah, this just in from the new "Take Back Our Country From the Fat Cat Special Interests" election of 2012, in the great state of Wisconsin.

• "Republican Gov.-elect Scott Walker plans to give any excess money raised for his inauguration to his campaign fund and the state Republican Party—instead of to charity—in a move that drew ridicule Wednesday."

• "Sen.-elect Ron Johnson has just hired his chief of staff, Don Kent. While the official release describes Kent as a former Dept. of Homeland Security worker, that’s not Kent’s only job experience. After leaving DHS, where Kent worked for Michael Chertoff, Kent became a lobbyist at Navigators Global, where he 'heads up the Homeland Security practice.'"

If it ain't broke, in Ohio, don't fix it. Or something.

Obligatory: Meet the new crooked bastards, same as the old crooked bastards.

The fact that people still manage to be surprised about that reminds me of that old definition of stupidity.

I like the added touch of the $17 per person prayer breakfast. Or was it $17 per prayer?

Kent was also an aide to rabid Okie asshole Sen. Don "We can't have gay ambassadors" Nickles.

It kind of makes you wonder if the savvy political move would be for Republicans to wait till 2012 for the big push, rather than accidentally reminding voters that they are, in fact, just as bad at governing two whole years before the election.
