The New Civility

We probably shouldn’t be surprised that legislative Democrats are now marketing themselves as the people who can restore civility to Wisconsin politics.

This is, after all, the same bunch that eagerly joined forces with the thousands of hateful protestors who spent February and March trashing the Capitol, menacing political opponents and attempting to paralyze the work of a lawfully-elected government by drowning it out with idiotic noise.

Take Representative Jennifer Shilling (D) LaCrosse. In her campaign ad to defeat Senator Dan Kapanke for doing his job, Shilling complains that she’s, “never seen our state as polarized as it is now.” That’s the same Jennifer Shilling who gave the solidarity fist bump to a protestor who was so out of control, police found it necessary to forcibly remove him.

With work on the state budget nearing completion, the mob is reassembling so naturally, Democrats choose this moment to proclaim themselves the apostles of courtesy and good behavior.
