Gov. Rick Scott spoke by phone with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker today (if it was really Gov. Walker, of course.) but according to the Palm Beach Post, Scott didn’t reveal much about the call:
Scott earlier in the day also spoke briefly by phone with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, whose pension overhaul and bid to end collective bargaining for public employees has spawned days of protests and a walkout by Senate Democrats.
“I talked to him about how he’s doing, I’m sure it’s tough,” said Scott, who plans to leave Thursday this weekend’s Republican Governors Association meeting.
”He’s not going to be able to come,” Scott said of his Badger State bro.
Yeah, it’s tough for poor Gov. Walker. Imagine, taking all that money and handing it over as corporate tax cuts while teachers and other public workers won’t sit back and allow their collective bargaining rights be taken away along with their pay cuts in return. The nerve! Human rights? Pshaw. Think how tough that’s been….for Gov. Walker.
No mention of Gov. Walker’s earlier conversation with fake David Koch yesterday, specifically this part:
“I talk to Kasich every day. John’s going to stand firm in Ohio. I think we do the same thing with Rick Scott in Florida. I think (Rick) Snyder, if he got a little support, could do the same thing in Michigan. I think if you go down the list, a lot of us new governors got elected to something big. “
Something big. Like say, destroying the middle class big? If so then, yes, we’ve noticed that. It seems to be a pattern. Too bad it isn’t working out the way they’d planned. People are funny when you strip away their livelihood and their rights. Who knew it would turn out this way?
The other thing in that phone call that was revealed was the mention of the upcoming long weekend at the Republican Governor’s Association meeting. Too bad poor Gov. Walker won’t be able to make it, as Gov. Scott lamented. After all, he’ll miss the next part of the plot when the Governors double down on their next plan of attack. Although, it’s not like the old days. We have technology now that will allow Gov. Walker to be there without really being there. Perhaps they can do a conference call or something. Think Gov. Walker will be up for that? OK, maybe if they use a secret password? Let me think.
Oh here’s one: “Sucker.”
