This just in from Scott Walker's role model

[img_assist|nid=39345|title=Dog of war|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=86]Gov. Scott Walker reportedly likens himself to late GOP politician Ronald Reagan -- governor, president and so-called Great Communicator -- so it's a wonder that Walker appears not to have ever heard Reagan say this -- and he said it 31 years ago in a Labor Day address:

“Where free unions and collective bargaining are forbidden, freedom is lost” -- Ronald Reagan, 1980

Next time you see Walker's name on a ballot, which may yet be next year in a recall, win one for The Gipper and mark the tab for someone else. Because, hey, freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose. Of course, I can already imagine the Walker partisans growling:  We didn't forbid unions and collective bargaining, we just made things so that they're both going to be impossible! It's a difference!  Yeah, but it's a difference without distinction.

And while you're busy tilting at windmills, Mister Walker, tear down that wall you've erected between the people of Wisconsin and their Capitol. The Gipper wouldn't have put up with that for a second.
