Jon Stewart discussed the phone call and other stupid Walkerisms here:
So rather than actually negotiate with the Democrats (who are listening to the will of the vast majority of Wisconsinites), Walker is hoping the missing senators are dumb enough to show back up and go into session so his Republican dominated legislature will bust the union's right to collective bargaining.
It gets even better. Today Madison Police Chief Noble Wray wants the governor to explain his remarks.
In a statement released on Thursday, Wray expressed concern over the governor's remarks during the call.Not smart to alienate the local police chief. Or to talk about basically inciting a riot in a peaceful crowd. Gov. Walker is starting to look like a total idiot.
“I spent a good deal of time overnight thinking about Governor Walker’s response, during his news conference yesterday, to the suggestion that his administration ‘thought about’ planting troublemakers among those who are peacefully protesting his bill. I would like to hear more of an explanation from Governor Walker as to what exactly was being considered, and to what degree it was discussed by his cabinet members. I find it very unsettling and troubling that anyone would consider creating safety risks for our citizens and law enforcement officers. Our department works hard dialoging with those who are exercising their First Amendment right, those from both sides of the issue, to make sure we are doing everything we can to ensure they can demonstrate safely. I am concerned that anyone would try to undermine these relationships. I have a responsibility to the community, and to the men and women of this department - who are working long hours protecting and serving this community – to find out more about what was being considered by state leaders," Wray said in a statement.
In addition, the Madison Police Department also released a separate statement, praising the preparedness of its officers, saying they are “trained for crowd situations where an agitator or provocateur may try to create safety risks for citizens and officers.” The department also commended all protesters for being peaceful during their rallies at the Capitol.
Which is what you'd expect from a boob like him.
