In a move that nobody was expecting, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has endorsed Scott Walker for Governor.
How on Earth does the second most liberal editorial staff come to the conclusion that a fiscally conservative Republican is their candidate? Why, when every little perceived flub is blared across the front page of the paper, would they say that Scott is their guy. I can think of only one reason.
The editors may be raging liberals, but they are not stupid. They see the writing on the wall as much as anyone. As far as I'm concerned, the only reason that they are endorsing him now, less than two weeks from election day, is that they want to keep bashing him hard and often. When they are called on it, they can point to today and say, "See?! We endorsed you! You can't attack us for attacking you!"
Way to go Mr. Pimentel...You just made yourselves even more irrelevant that you already are.
