Now I have to decide if Jill Bader is an idiot or if she thinks I’m an idiot


Found out today that former State Assembly Speaker John Gard is going to be co-chair of Mark Neumann’s campaign for governor. Gard, of course, served in the State Assembly with Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker but has decided to join the Neumann camp instead.

Of course, I found out about Gard joining the Neumann team from this e-mail sent by Jill Bader, spokesman for the Walker campaign:

Heads up –
Looks like Neumann finally found someone to be his co-chair. A lobbyist.  Oh wait, looks like he surrendered his license yesterday.  Wonder why?  Nothing to want to shy away from, I’m sure.

 (I removed the e-mail addresses and phone numbers.)

So now I have to wonder if Bader thinks I never heard of the former speaker,or if my readers never heard of the former speaker, or if she didn’t know who John Gard was.

I’m probably off the smiley face e-mail list now.
