Scott Walker Declares War on Christmas

When I saw this article yesterday, I was sure it was either a hoax or something from a tongue-in-cheek website e.g. The Onion that somebody took seriously.  But apparently not.

Last week, Governor Scott Walker's campaign sent an e-mail urging Walker's supporters to forgo buying Christmas presents for their children, and instead donate that money to Scott Walker's re-election campaign.

(Here are some links.)

And this article has a screenshot of the offending e-mail:

Here is the email in full:
Straight from the Horse's Ass's Mouth.  Like they say, you can't make this shit up.
And speaking of Scott Walker, let us remember The Rude Pundit's immortal description of him: ...a man who looks like he just huffed spray paint fumes while rubbing a dead possum against his face.

It looks like all those rightwing pundits were correct after all:  There really IS a War on Christmas.  This war isn't being waged by pagan cashiers who say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas.  It's being waged by Patriotic Biblehumping Union-busting Scott Walker and his henchmen.

This guy is unbelievable -- no, I take that back. I only wish I didn't believe it.

He's a gift that keeps on giving, all right -- in the same sense as sewage, which is what he most closely resembles.

Come on, people -- let's take this trash out.

Sad to see this tactic spreading. I first saw it some time back with Obama fundraising. At least the person sending this out apparently has been fired, though not necessarily for this.

TML: I hadn't realized Obama also did this, until yesterday when I Googled it and found an article about it. It's still tacky, regardless of who does it. I didn't know the person had been fired. The last I saw was that she was "unavailable for comment." But she probably got thrown under the bus.

I'm sure kids will enjoy finding a receipt from Walker's gubernatorial/presidential campaign in their stocking than a present. This will surely make them feel all warm and fuzzy inside... and proud of their parents, too!

Snave: Yes, I certainly wish my Christmas stockings had been filled with receipts from politicians' campaigns instead of a bunch of boring presents.

This is why that aide of his was fired not for her racist shit that happened months and months ago. Idiots being idiots. They really have the gift of grifting down pat don't they? I'm giving my neice and nephews the gift of donations to politicians and I can just hear their happy little screams at the gift. Not really

Jess: Yup, the kids will scream with delight at these political gifts.
