We were thinking maybe it’s time for Koch whore Gov. Scott Walker to start paying attention to job creation in Wisconsin. Ever since he got elected he’s been acting like a baby with a nail gun, raising taxes on the poor, giving millionares tax breaks, destroying government unions, shrinking essential services for Wisconsin’s middle class and increasing joblessness in nearly all of Wisconsin’s cities.

Even a mouth-breather like Walker has got to realize that he’s bound to be recalled in 191 days if he doesn’t turn things around. Especially after making the enormous blunder of planning a budget-signing ceremony at a company owned by a felonious tax evader.

But no, he’s jetting to New York City on Tuesday to head a swanky fundraiser for the chairman of the Republican National Committee. That’ll create a lot of jobs in Wisconsin, won’t it? Actually, it will inspire a protest. Here are the deets:

Tuesday, June 28. Grand Army Plaza Park, 5th Avenue between 58th and 60th Streets 
(Across the street from the Sherry Netherland Hotel). The fundraiser runs from 5 pm to 7 pm.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
