… Republicans Believe In The Rule Of Law (except when they don’t)

Ol’ “Baseball Bat” Walker got spanked in court yesterday, AGAIN.

From the Milwaulkee Journal-Sentinel: Dane County Judge Maryann Sumi – “Apparently that language was either misunderstood or ignored, but what I said was the further implementation of Act 10 was enjoined. That is what I now want to make crystal clear.”

Pretty clear, eh? Well, not to GOPers:

But outside the courtroom, Assistant Attorney General Steven Means said the legislation “absolutely” is still in effect.

Just where do GOPers get that kind of nonsense/legal reasoning?

By channelling the ghost of Milhous Nixon – let’s look!!!

(direct link to YouTube)

Nixon: “When the president does it, that means it’s not illegal.”

Well, to be fair, GOPers think that when a GOPer president/governor/etc etc etc does it… that means it’s not illegal.

GOPers believed that then; they believe it now, and tomorrow won’t be any different, because Republicans Believe In The Rule Of Law (except when they don’t).

While Gaddafi went on Libya State TV (why not? He owns it) to channel the ghosts of Baghdad Bob and Tom Emmer, ol’ “Baseball Bat” Walker chose to go on Faux Noise Fox News (why not? The GOP owns it) to peddle similar camel dung: Sean insHanitty Interviews Walker: Walker Claims Credit for 10,000 New Jobs And Lower Unemployment

Hey – “Baseball Bat” Walker’s makin’ that claim all over! Like, just last week – in Hudson, WI:

MnPP: Walker Claims Credit for 10,000 New Jobs And Lower Unemployment

Speakin’ o’ other claims Ol’ Baseball Bat is makin’ that aren’t true:

Politifact.com: “Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says out-of-staters account for “almost all” in Madison protests” - FALSE.

Hey – who the (cheney) does Ol’ Baseball Bat think he is – former Gov. “TBag” Pawlenty??!?

TBag’s court cases don’t turn out so swell – for Timmy. Ol’ Baseball Bat’s only been in office for FAR too long since January, and already this:

From the #YouCantMakeThisStuffUp Dept…. while Gaddafi declared a tax cut

2:41pm Libyan state TV announces wide-ranging tax cuts. It says:

The general public committee has decided to reduce customs on basic commodities to zero per cent and to reduce customs on all other commodities to only five per cent. It also decided to remove all consumption and production taxes.

… Madison.com reports that “Walker’s budget slashes tax credits that aid poor:

Low-income taxpayers in Wisconsin would lose hundreds of dollars in tax credits a year under Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed budget — at the same time the governor wants tax cuts for businesses and investors to boost jobs.

Thanks to the eagle-eyed and dedicated reader that sent that tip in!!!

In other news of note concerning Scott “Baseball Bat” Walker, who dreams of treating the least amongst him worse than Gadaffi:

Via the Green Bay Press-Gazette: “(GOP) Sen. Cowles: Republicans have to be “flexible” on collective bargaining negotiations”

Via DailyKos: “Wisconsin recall update: 15% of signature goal reached”

And finally, Faux Noise’s @MikeTobinFox still hasn’t posted a new tweet, ever since the news came out he’s a KochWhore SpokesTool “typical Fox Reporter”.
