Barely three days before the gubernatorial recall election in the Badger State, an outfit called
the Wisconsin Citizens Media Co-op breaks a story about a(n illegitimate) love child Scott Walker father and left behind. The next day the Daily Kos (the Daily Kos!) reports that the woman in question denied that the Wisconsin governor fathered her baby.
“The Democrats”, quips John Hinderaker, blogging about the news at Powerline, “are looking down the barrel of a humiliating defeat in Wisconsin’s recall election on Tuesday, so today they played their last card“. Meanwhile Democrats are talking about some kind of investigation into Governor Scott Walker, leading that good man to say, “The Democrats are desperate. . . . They’ve got nothing else. We’ve answered this question a million different times, and they don’t want to talk about what this recall is really about.”
University of Wisconsin law professor Ann Althouse says that notions that legal cloud supposedly gathering over Walker “less of a cloud of law than a swarm of Democrats“, adding
Desperate Democrats. Embarrassing. You just had a former President appear on behalf of your candidate. Why not a little grace and dignity as you approach the end?
If it’s this bad right now heading into the Wisconsin recall, can you imagine how it will be come November nationally, particularly if Obama, like the Democrat in the Badger State, is lagging in the polls in the run-up to balloting?
