Schizophrenic MJS Can't Decide on Walker

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has treated County Executive Scott Walker with kid gloves for a very long time. The county infrastructure is falling down all around him and they can barely muster the courage to hold him accountable. There are so many ways that they have abdicated their responsibilities regarding Walker that it is almost pointless to make a list.

After universally being panned for refusing federal money for Milwaukee County, the MJS was actually able to critique Scott Walker. The humorous part of their editorial, at least for me, was how it began. The headline read "Just plain wrong" but then the very first sentence started, "Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker is right..." If nothing else, it encapsulates the paper's unhealthy love affair with the disaster on the third floor. Unhealthy and apparently a little schizophrenic.

The paper has spent years pointing out how Walker has mishandled Milwaukee County, for the purpose of political gain, yet they still defend him.

Simply preposterous.
