Marvel, oh my droogies, at the caliber of establishment that the Brave Sir Robins (otherwise known as “Democratic Wisconsin state senators trying to avoid a vote on ending collective bargaining”) hid out at, rather than do their job. I give you… the Tilted Kilt:
If you think that I’m going to pretend that I wouldn’t have a beer and something fried – AND NON-SCOTTISH – at such a fine, fine residence myself, well… I’m not. I’d probably cheerfully eat there, if I needed to, or really, wanted to. But I wouldn’t be doing it on the taxpayer’s dime, either – and if I’m there in Illinois when I should be in Wisconsin dealing with the fact that elections have consequences, then I’m doing it on the taxpayer’s dime whether or not I’m using my personal credit card to leave Fiona MacSchoolgirloutfit an outrageous tip that will not, in fact, result in her helping toss my caber*.
And remember this well, ye Wisconsin Republican state Senators. That is where your ‘colleagues’ were while you were carefully avoiding letting your heads, or those of your staffers, be in a clear field of fire today.
*Not that I would attempt to enlist such help, being married and all.
