    Gov. Walker Ask Supporters To Not Spend Xmas Money on Toys; Send it to Him

    You ever seen one of those news articles that, no matter your political leaning, just pisses you off? Well, I found one:

    Gov. Walker Urges Parents to Skip Toys and Send the Christmas Money to Him

    That's right folks! Gov. Walker (Rep) of Wisconsin wants you to send that money you planned to spend for toys, to his political campaign. This is what the campaign email said:

    Just... wow.

    Seems stupid, but I don't see anything to get upset about it. It seems to me it was a bad attempt at marketing humor by someone who clearly wasn't very funny.

    Nice to see that the aide who sent out that email was also a real racist ass who got fired for a series of tweets demeaning Hispanics.

    So it appears this was the work of an aid who has been fired.

    From the same link:

    UPDATE: Walker's campaign has fired the aide who sent this email, Taylor Palmisano, for an unrelated incident involving tweets demeaning Hispanics, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.


    Look I don't like Walker as a politician, but even I have a hard time believing a politician would commit political suicide like this.
