Wisconsin May Not Be Egypt, But It Might Be Libya

Tweeter JCCentCom is known to his friends as Jeff Cox. He’s also known to his colleagues as a deputy attorney general for the state of Indiana. And now he’s known to his employers as somebody under “immediate review”.

And while we’re in the neighborhood:

The leader of the Indiana Senate said Wednesday that controversial right-to-work legislation that died this week in the House won’t be resurrected in the Senate — and should not have been introduced this year at all.

“It was a mistake,” said Senate President Pro Tem David Long, R-Fort Wayne.

Somebody should work up a map of which legislators are hiding in which states.

@nojo:

I wonder what the bit about “this year” is supposed to mean – what, did they open the RNC folder labelled “DO NOT OPEN UNTIL FASCIST TAKEOVER IN PROGRESS” too soon?

Here’s how crazy the news is this week: Rahm wins with 55 percent, and nobody notices.

@nojo: Did you hear that he offered to pay $5 grand to @MayorEmanuel’s favorite charity in order to make him/her STFU? It may be a moot offer, as MayorEmanuel seems to be scripting its own departure as of today–alas.

@SanFranLefty: Cool! I look forward to the sledding photos.

@SanFranLefty: In Orygun, too. Looks like I’ll be hiking up the hill to work tomorrow.

@flippin eck: Yup. Had it on the tip list one day, but it kept falling to the bottom. Same thing’s happening today with an old Rumstud memo that’s amusing, but not breaking.

@nojo: Speaking of which, Barry’s on tap for Libyatalk in about ten minutes.

5:06 pm • Wednesday • February 23, 2011

I emailed the AG in Indiana and got a nice note back. Something about investigating yadda yadda yadda.

5:12 pm • Wednesday • February 23, 2011

@nojo: Libyatalk over. No news.

So IN AG has an opening now?

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: I have his email if you want it.

TPM has a picture of this guy. He is obviously a chargers fan. I can’t tell if he prefers Marty or Norv.

@jwmcsame: What’s up with his bad Justin Bieber hairdo?

6:27 pm • Wednesday • February 23, 2011

@SanFranLefty: i can’t quite figure that picture. it appears he is wearing two coats, which rules out him being in san diego. logic would dictate that he is at a colts-chargers game in indy due to the jackets and the end zone being blue, but indy plays indoors. so we got a hometown boy pulling for the other team while wearing two jackets indoors. the jackets must be a liquor smuggling ploy meaning he can’t go the at least $6/beer about 6-7 times a game. also what kinda asshole lives in indy but pulls against my man peyton manning (aka tennessee jesus, aka p. money). i only met peyton once here in rocky top so i can’t get peyton to get some one to whup his ass. but i know a lineman who blocked for peyton who could get some one to whup his ass or do the job himself seeing how times are so hard now. what do y’all think? we’ll see if he wants to back up all that live ammo tough talk.

@SanFranLefty: He looks like Cousin Oliver all grown up.
@jwmcsame: Just one jacket with a detachable hoodie/liner and a thick scarf. Asshole probably just walked into the stadium or was just leaving, which is why he has the jacket on and is either putting on or taking off the backpack strap he is holding.

@jwmcsame: That guy is teh gay.
