The real world tunes out
June 15, 2011
The despicable media continue to overlook the repulsive behavior of the mobs. Last week Madison’s slightly less leftist newspaper published a wet, sloppy Valentine to the slobs camping on the square, by a columnist who used to write about the raw deal Madison teachers were getting, while married to a Madison teacher.
Fortunately, we live in a time when the influence of the conventional media is rapidly withering, and “zombie” protesters frightening Special Olympics athletes can no longer expect a free pass.
Meanwhile, the real world tunes out. Elsewhere around the state, normal people who work (hard) for a living were not amused when advised to expect more Capitol mayhem.
Advised to “get ready for round two” of mass protests as the budget bill passes, normal people in the north woods literally rolled their eyes.
Democrats, following their ancient custom of attempting to prosper from their own malfeasance, now risk ending up a smaller minority than they are today or, perversely, might grab a Senate majority that allows them to shut down the Walker reform agenda at least through 2012. Everything depends on conservative voters understanding that the Left is totally committed in a permanent battle to steal other people’s money.
While tuning out looks like a sign of robust mental health, everything worth having depends on conservatives staying in the fight however long it takes.
