You are SO fired!

Robin Vos is the boss!

One of Tommy Thompson’s former staff members relates how the governor backed him into a wardrobe closet at an event that had gone wrong and growled, “You are so fired!” Tommy fired and rehired the same aide twice that day.

Ronald Reagan retired his Bedtime for Bonzo image for all time when — seven months into his presidency — he fired air traffic controllers for illegally striking and endangering public safety. The man meant business!

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Leader Devin LeMahieu

One of Donald Trump’s greatest accomplishments (among many) was firing FBI director James Comey. Trump had perfected firing under-achieving apprentices on his reality TV show. Recently, Florida Gov. DeSantis fired the district attorney who vowed not to enforce state law. Good leaders fire poor performers. We have our own list. (When will the Uvalde TX school police chief be fired?)

Our only regret is that Vos didn’t give Mike Gableman the heave-ho on camera like Trump used to do on The Apprentice. The public has been denied the image of Gableman at the bus stop holding a cardboard box. Instead of an honest investigator, Gableman was always a partisan Stolen Election mythologizer. Like the Queen of Hearts, he was verdict first, evidence later.

Which makes him a martyred hero to too many Republican dupes like like N.J. and D.G. here in Dane County WI. Willing and eager dupes. They and the like-(un)minded gave Timothy Ramthun a round of applause at Saturday’s Dane County Lincoln-Reagan dinner 08-13-22. (Except from that one guy at Table 3.) A nominee who would have lost to the tooth fairy.

Ramthun ran for the Republican nomination for governor promising to decertify the the last presidential election in violation of state statute and constitution — and practicality.

Speak not of the Speaker

The name “Robin Vos” went unspoken Saturday at the Concourse Hotel, lest dinner rolls be thrown. The man himself elicited a fierce booing at the Republican state convention this past May for explaining that neither he nor Tim Ramthun is above the law. Survived a vote of no confidence. Barely hung onto his Assembly seat last week in the Republican primary with 51.3% of the vote. Find where, oh ye self-proclaimed constitutional conservatives, elections can be “decertified.” Especially in the absence of any actual — you know — evidence. How many voters will you disenfranchise because they dropped their ballots into boxes authorized by their local and state election officials in order to get the result you want? How do you know they all voted “wrong?”

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Our Republican party is in deep, dark doo doo if it thinks Robin Vos is the enemy. The Speaker has been Lord Voldemort to Wisconsin’s Democrat(ic) governor. Why would the leader chosen by 61 Republicans elected around the state put in the fix to keep Joe Biden in the White House? It doesn’t make sense.

Who would YOU like to fire?

    There’s_Zero_Inflation purveyor DementiaJoKe and his monumentally talentless, catastrophically incoherent VPOTUS!

    You’re So Fired It’s Pathetic was a line delivered by the late J.T. Walsh in some movie; was it as Wing in Tin Men?

    If the GOP maintains control of the Assembly (and it looks like it will based on the recent redistricting), I am curious to see:
    1) If Vos runs for Speaker again.
    2) If Vos runs for Speaker, will he be challenged from within his caucus for
    Speaker and how he fares in the election for Speaker.

    I think Vos was attempting to straddle the fence and placate both sides of the 2020 election issue by hiring what he thought was a former WI SC justice who would investigate in an impartial way and somehow issue a report with some recommendations that, despite grumbling, would satisfy both sides in the GOP. Instead of straddling the fence, he fell straight down on it and now his voice is several octaves higher and he got politically stabbed in the back by his choice of investigator…

    Everyone admitted that this Gableman investigation was not going to overturn anything. They continued anyway. Extensions and more money at every turn. This is plain and simple fraud. The only reason it ended was Gableman turned on Vos. Robin Vos should be fired and prosecuted as Gableman should. Don’t forget the taxpayers are still on the hook for the outstanding lawsuits. More of our money pi$$ed away.
