Team Walker’s Tackiness Knows No End

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on September 5, 2010

Team Walker has truly mastered the art of putting their collective feet in their collective mouths.

Shortly after the tragedy at O’Donnell Park, where a 27,000 pound concrete facade fell off, killing a teenage boy, injuring another boy and seriously injuring a woman, Team Walker had to brag about “crushing” Tom Barrett in the polls.

Despite receiving some criticism for their poor choice of words, they repeat the same gaffe shortly after a panel fell at Mitchell Airport, striking another young man in the head. This time, they “crushed” a low balled campaign goal.

A couple of weeks ago, two of Walker’s campaign staffers (not to be confused with his county staff or his county/campaign staff), issued a racially-tinged tweet.

Now, Walker has come out with a new commercial which shows Walker wearing boxing gloves, threatening to “fight back” against Tom Barrett. Barrett, if you would recall, is still recovering from a severe beating he took when he intervened trying to protect a woman and her grandchild near State Fair last week.

Taken individually, each of these examples are not very meaningful and, at worst, can be called an example of poor taste or social skills.

But together, they only reinforce the perception that Walker is an immature, egocentric and not ready for prime time. It also reinforces the stories about Walker’s days at Marquette University and the unethical behavior he displayed when he ran for president of the student body.
