Charlie Sykes: Sykes Writes

GOP Candidate Who Signed Walker Recall: 'I’m a Common Sense Conservative, You Fanatics."

The year is yet young, but we may have an early leader in the 2014 Doublespeak Olympics.

On Monday, Kevin Binversie, here on RightWisconsin, reported that Jackie Jarvis, a Republican candidate in the 27th Assembly District race to replace Rep. Steve Kestell (R-Elkhart Lake) had signed a petition to recall Governor Scott Walker.

We, of course, anxiously awaited her explanation. It was not long in coming and was, in so many respects, an instant classic. 

In the course of 433 words on her Facebook page, Jarvis lashed out at Binversie as a "far right radical," played the victim card, insisted she was a "fiscal conservative," claimed that signing the Walker recall petition was a "personal" decision that would have no bearing on her work as a legislator, lashed out at Act 10 for damaging education, accused her critics of being RWETOs (more later on that) and then touted herself as someone who would avoid "polarizing behavior."

She concludes: "Don’t let the fanatics drown out the voices of common sense conservatives."

The fanatics, presumably, would be those who opposed the recall election and backed Walker. The "common sense conservatives" would be those like Jackie Jarvis, who joined with the Blue Fisters to force the multi-million dollar recall.

Good luck with that.
