The Train Domain Name Game

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on August 19, 2010

Scott Walker thinks he’s got a winning point to grandstand on when it comes to the high speed rail that is about to be built. Of course, for this to be a winning talking point for him, he will require a lot of gullibility among the voters.

He will have to get them to believe he could actually stop this train from coming, when in reality, he can’t. He will also have to get people to believe that the train only goes from Milwaukee to Madison and back, when in reality, it will reach all across the nation. He will also have to convince people that live up north that some angry cranks in Waukesha County represent the majority and that people really don’t need the jobs that will come with the train being built.

But it appears that Walker’s train game is already coming off its tracks.

Cindy Kilkenny points out that this whole train game is a last minute gimmick. She also raises the question about if this is just another sign that his internal polling numbers are still showing that he is in deep trouble when it comes to the primary, which he still likes to pretend isn’t going to happen.

And now the pro-train advocates are standing up to him. JSOnline points out that they have built their own website to fight back to tell Walker and Mark Neumann that they are daft for thinking that they are more powerful than this locomotive.

I have a feeling that this, like most of Walker’s other schemes, will fizzle out within a week.
