    “Indiana!”

    “I raised my hands slowly like this … and the baby took BACK the lollipop I just took”

    “I saw Quinn … I said, ‘You are getting sleepy … sleepy …’ …”

    “so, I hid under Jason Plummer’s bed and sprung out and yelled ‘Boo!’ …”

    “Fire, GOOD … Friends, GOOD”

    (Yelling) “Puttin’ on the Ritz!”

    In my right hand, I hold the solution to Wisconsin’s fiscal problems. In my left hand, I hold the solution to Wisconsin’s labor problems. I would be happy to share them with your state when I become a consultant sometime in June.

    Gov. Walker pictured doing his best Austin Powers impression…”Grrrr baby, grrrr!”

  12. - Reality Check - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 12:37 pm:

    Pull the string in back and the hands go up, like this. Of course it only works if you’re a CEO. Gov. Quinn appears responsive to the technology as well.


  13. - Judgment Day - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 12:43 pm:

    “Whenever I raise my hands up like this, the unions all think I’m out to steal their birthright of Collective Bargaining…”

  15. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 12:43 pm:

    Scott Walker proudly demonstrates that he can count to ten. He said he can count to twenty if he takes his shoes off. You don’t want to know how he counts to 21.

    Scott Walker strategically blocks the “N” in the sign behind him.


  16. - L.S. - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 12:44 pm:

    Just throw your hands in the air, and wave them like you just don’t care (about the middle class)

    So, I grabbed that big wheel of cheese with both hands and took a huge bite! And, when I woke up, I was the governor!


  23. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 12:52 pm:

    “And I said … ‘Help me tear down that Union Wall’ … so … I raised both hands like this, kinda like the ‘Emperor’ in Star Wars ….”


  24. - CLJ - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 1:00 pm:

    “I’m hear to take you back to Wisconsin with me.”


  25. - Scott McCoy - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 1:00 pm:

    In Wisconsin, we are just picking your small businesses from you like ripe fruit from the dying Illinois tree…


  26. - Been There - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 1:00 pm:

    You slowly bend the cheese like this. Then when it gets into shape you put it on your head and go to the football game.
    But make sure the cheese is made with milk from non-union cows.


  27. - LakeviewJ - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 1:01 pm:

    “We can go when we want to
    The night is young and so am I
    And we can dress real neat from our hats to our feet
    And surprise ‘em with the victory cry
    Say, we can act if want to
    If we don’t nobody will
    And you can act real rude and totally removed
    And I can act like an imbecile”

    And then the Illinois Democrats will take your pension away……. and spend on their own benefits

  35. - Amused One - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 1:18 pm:

    And then I attached Wisconsin’s fiscal and labor problems just like a “Badger”.


  36. - G. Willickers - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 1:25 pm:

    Gov. Scott Walker, demonstrating his keen sense of up-is-down direction, campaigned in the wrong state yesterday.

    “My recall election is in this state here, see. But I like being the belle of the ball so I’m taking a day to yap in this other state over here,” he said.

    I mean, just last month Wisconsin landed a big Illinois fish, literally, it was this big!


  40. - No Peotone Airport - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 1:47 pm:

    Here’s what else these big union bosses are trying to do to me… They have petitioned the Glacier’s Edge Council of the Boy Scouts of America in Janesville to recall my rank of Eagle Scout by having them revoke my American Labor merit badge!


  41. - Dirty Red - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 1:48 pm:

    Since when has Dan Aykroyd been Governor of Wisconsin?


  42. - Jem - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 1:49 pm:

    Obviously, it would be better to have a firm grasp on unions (like the Dems in Illinois, than to try and work with them!

    Is it just me, or is that photo eerily Nixonian?


  48. - Pot calling kettle - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 2:35 pm:

    Gov. Walker showed the crowd what Sesame Street would look like without government funding. He said, “We can cut funding for PBS, and the kids won’t even notice.”


  49. - siu alum - Wednesday, Apr 18, 12 @ 2:45 pm:

    “and just then, in the middle of his speech, Gov. Walker froze with his hands up and mouth wide open while a puff of smoke appeared from his shirt collar. Witnesses claimed that two men resembling the Koch brothers were seen running out the fire exit, and

    This is the dance move I used to become king of Bollywood.

    You have a brat this this long and this thick you can cook it on a Weber grill if you put it in a circle.

    On one hand you have Wisconsin on the other you have Minnesota, can you tell the difference? I didn’t think so.

    I sometimes go up to windows at union meetings and go Rarrrr and do this with my hands, you should see them freak out.
