A real Kochsucker

If Harry Baals can be honest about how to pronounce his last name, so can the Koch brothers. At least that would help make sense of this story.

In a phone conversation that a prankster recorded, Republican Governor Scott Walker suggested he hoped to lure to the Capitol the 14 Democratic Senators who fled to Illinois to stall his proposed legislation, which they say will cripple the unions.

A transcript of the call, posted on a website, also showed Walker had said he had “thought about” hiring outside agitators to disrupt the two weeks of demonstrations by thousands of union members against the bill.

In the call, Walker believed he was speaking with billionaire conservative David Koch. Walker’s campaign received $43,000 last year from the Political Action Committee of Koch Industries, owned by Koch and his family. Koch is known for contributions to conservative causes.

You got that? If you’re middle class and only willing to help solve the, ya know, real problems of Wisconsin, not the ideological ones, Walker won’t talk to you. But if you’ve got billions of dollars and want nothing more than to see victory for FREEEEEEEDDOOOOOOMMM!!!!11!!!, then sure, he’s all ears.

Oh. And by “freedom” I mean “greedy fucking corporate whims”.
