Walker as Lincoln
A letter writer to the Capital Times, Madison’s favorite conspiracy newsletter online, suggested that Governor Scott Walker should govern more like Abraham Lincoln. I got my hopes up because I thought the letter writer was going to suggest Walker have an army rip through Madison and turn it into the Atlanta scene from Gone with the Wind. Or perhaps the letter writer was going to suggest that Walker give his own Emancipation Proclamation by announcing every African American child in Wisconsin trapped in a failing school system would be free to go to the school of his or her parents’ choosing.
Nope, it’s all Scott Walker’s fault the state is divided. Thank you George McClellan.
