I know that some of our readers are die-hard Scott Walker fans and with good reason. Living just an hour south of the Wisconsin border, I honestly feel like Scott Walker, the only living governor to win the same race three times in five years, makes my cheese, sausage, outlet shopping and Renaissance Faire better and safer. He’s been able to contain the madness of Madison, Wisconsin to the thirty square miles or so it occupies, without allowing Wisconsin’s resident Communists to smear their patchoui incense, ultimate Frisbee and economic illiteracy across an unsuspecting state.
But Scott Walker really needs to hire some consultants to proofread his emails for cultural sensitivity.
I am pretty sure he meant “Mazel Tov,”and something inside Microsoft Word, which is still trying to come to terms with 2008, autocorrected it to something it understood, because people are always trying to throw them through the picture window of the guy who invented the Microsoft browser. But is that even the right Hanukkah closing? I feel a little like that might be like wishing someone a Happy Birthday at Christmas, which is sweet, and kind of correct in a theologically-tortured sort of way, but not exactly in line with the traditions of the season.
At any rate, Governor Walker, you might want to hire an extra intern or two.
