“It’s good and encouraging news,” Palin told Fox News host Greta Van Susteren after Walker defeated Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett on Tuesday. “It’s good for the entire country because people are going to recognize through Gov. Walker’s efforts that austerity measures — responsible austerity measures of reigning in government growth — really will help our nation as a whole with the economic woes that we face.”
“This is positive news,” she added. “And Wisconsin is living up to its state’s motto, that providential motto of ‘forward.’ They’re moving forward.”
I thought 'forward' was COMMIE PINKO.
Now, my explanation for what happened in Wisconsin -- voters are tired of recalls and the ennui brought on by $50 million in soul-crushing ads -- seems to make more sense. But then again, I'm not a grifter from Alaska, either. Of course this means the Walker formula can be used to destroy unions in other states until we're all losers with wages stuck since 1970 and asked to work harder and longer for less money, fewer benefits, and vacation time you can lose your job over actually using.
Forward, alright. To London during the Industrial Revolution, maybe.
