Amid criticism, Doyle gets out of bed

"Satire in the style of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which apparently doesn't realize its daily attacks on the governor are a joke.


By the Journal Sentinel Madison Bureau

Madison – Serious questions have arisen about Gov. Jim Doyle getting out of bed this morning.

The controversial governor's actions – coming on the heels of repeated accusations of fraud by Democratic administrative officials – were challenged from all sides -- even from overseas.

"You don't think Marc Marotta and Georgia Thompson are going to blithely just arise this morning without thinking about the legal problems they have due to Doyle," said Rick Wiley, executive director of the state Republican Party. "It may be easy for Doyle to just get out of bed, but it's going to be much harder for those many members of this administration under investigation."

U.S. Prosecutor Steve Biskupic promised a "full and thorough" investigation into Doyle's sleeping habits, saying "there have been many allegations of improprieties." He repeated that there was no political implications in his investigation, just as there haven't been in any of his myrid other investigations of Democrats.

"The governor's arising this morning is yet another affront to Wisconsin taxpayers," said an 8 a.m. press release from Republican candidate Rep. Mark Green. "The cost of operating the governor's mansion continued to rise during the Doyle era, and he's done nothing so far today to address the massive cost of dirty sheets – not to mention eggs and bacon."

The embattled governor's latest maneuvers even brought criticism from overseas. "It's an obvious attempt to carry on as if nothing was wrong," said U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic Rick Graber. "Clearly, it's tied to the widespread voter fraud in Wisconsin."

Doyle vetoed measures passed by the State Legislature to deal with voter fraud, and repeatedly has challenged attempts to legislate relief for the state.

Bloggers around Wisconsin blasted the governor's rising. "It's whatliberals do," said Jessica McBride on her blog. "Do we see any support of America or President Bush? Nooooo," said WISN radio personality Mark Belling. "And he really thinks we are going to be fooled into believing that he's getting out of bed to work," said TMJ4 talk show host Charlie Sykes. "The state would be better off if he got back into bed."

Voter Joe Blow, who voted for Doyle in the last election, attempted to defend the governor. "Well, he's not hiding in bed, is he?" Blow responded when asked whether he still supported the governor. He declined to say he'd vote for Doyle again.

So does his arising from the bed affect the cost of motor fuel?

t's hard to get up in the morning when you've been whoring yourself out to, let's see, Hurtgen, the Tribes,Road Construction and all the other big contributors to his campaign like Knight Infrastructures. Who knows what illness he's got let's hope it's not contagious to the next Gov.
