Want to win the WI Recall? Make sure this story goes as wide as humanly possible
Certainly the litany of Scott Walker's sins is long and varied: Gross mismanagement, worst in the nation Job numbers, union-busting, billionaire toadying, and good old fashioned political corruption and criminal activity. But the fact is, anyone upset about these things is already voting against him, and many polls still have the race tied or ahead. So to win this thing, we need a wedge issue that peels off some of his support, particularly in his Northern WI base areas. Fortunately Scott Walker has just handed us just such a wedge on a sliver platter in his appointment of Dr. James Kroll as the State's "deer Czar". You see Dr. Kroll considers allowing hunters to hunt for free on state-managed game lands, "the last bastion of communism" and want to do away with it altogether.
Even if you think this issue doesn't matter because you've never shot an animal with anything other than a camera, if you want the Dems to win the recall election you need to spread this story as far and wide as possible. Because, trust me, there are people in WI for who this will REALLY matter, and they're precisely the people we need to reach. Let me explain:
<..> The point is this story need to be a topic of furious statewide discussion and we've only got two weeks to make it happen. This story is a gift from heaven, an equalizer in a race heavily skewed by floods of billionaire support for their mascot Scotty Walker. But all the money in the world can't un-piss off a voter that thinks he's about to take their deer huntin' away. But it is up to us to make sure they know that's what's going on. As they say in hunt country around here: Release the hounds
I can see where taking away hunting grounds would piss people off. Around here the day deer season opens the hunters are out there.
