WI Dems should have kept Graeme Zielinski as spokesman

WI Dems should have kept Graeme Zielinski as spokesman

Really, as much as I didn’t want to hear his name, Graeme Zielinksi was the perfect spokesman for the Wisconsin Democratic Party.

A true reflection of the anti-Scott Walker politics practiced in Wisconsin:

After a couple of tweets on March 1 comparing Walker to Jeffrey Dahmer, Zielinski is out as spokesman although he’ll still be working for the Wisconsin Democratic Party, Democratic Party staffer Graeme Zielinski dropped as spokesman after Twitter outburst:

Democratic Party staffer Graeme Zielinski was removed as the party spokesman following his Twitter outburst in which he compared Republican Gov. Scott Walker to serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer, sources said Monday.

Party leaders also docked Zielinski a week’s pay – which works out to a little more than $1,000 – for his tweets after Milwaukee prosecutors announced that they were shutting down a secret criminal investigation of Walker’s aides.

Late Friday, Zielinski removed the offensive tweets and apologized both to the families of Dahmer’s victims and to the first-term Republican governor.

One source close to the party said Zielinski, a former newspaper reporter, will stay on with the state Democratic Party as a “media adviser.” He will, however, no longer be permitted to post on Twitter, where he has been prolific in recent years.

“He agreed,” said one source. “He’s aware of the mistakes he’s made.”

The source declined to say why officials decided to keep Zielinski on the party payroll.

This really is a shame. Now we’ll get some prettified (is that a word?) spokesperson putting out a smiling face.

I preferred the real face of the Wisconsin Democratic Party, Graeme Zielinski:

I’m glad that at least some Democrats in Wisconsin have the good sense to be offended by this jerk. It’s a start.

    Valerie, I seriously doubt that any Democrats in Wisconsin were offended by the comments of Graeme Zielinski. Rather, his comments were counter productive to the cause of the Democrats in regaining power. Even the goatherds of Islam have learned that violent jihad is not a ‘one size fits all’ type of political doctrine. Hence infiltration and subversion often accomplish what bombs cannot. Violence in words or deeds against your opponent can have the opposite effect of strengthening his resolve.

Too real, Prof. He let the skunk stink. The skunk cannot be a skunk.

I don’t understand. Democrats have falsely smeared Tea Parties as racists, Nazis, Islamophobes, homophobes, bigots, women hating misogynists, anti-science Luddites, terrorists (Robert Reich used the terrorist label again in a Salon column last week) — but comparing a mild mannered governor to a cannibal somehow crosses some imaginary line into incivility? Funny. Ha Ha Ha Ha

There must be more to this story than we know.

When the enemy learns to be cautious, it’s time to be doubly aware of what’s going on.

Yes, PLEASE “celebrate by punching a Republican.” Then, when you wake up in the hospital after said Republican has ripped your head off and drop-kicked it up your butt, you’ll have plenty of time to be grateful for Medicare.

[…] …Wisconsin Democrat (and frothing lunatic) Graeme Zielinksi will be shutting up now. […]

Every dimicrat in my county knows who I am and where to find me.

By all means, please execute that scumwad’s desire.

This dem is starting to look like Ernst Röhm

    Hey Huskers: Are you saying that Zielinksi has certain predilections like good Ol Herr Röhm? Must be time for Obama to execute his plans for his version of the Night of the Long Knives.

    Strange how the Dhimmicrat functions! What’s good is bad except when it’s good or needed except when your current enemy has it.

Zielinski seems fascinated with serial killers. Not only does he make reference to Dahmer in his rants about politicians, but he lists “Dexter” as his favorite TV show.
