Walker “extreme far right”, but Wisconsin never “far left”, says Kathleen Falk

Totally makes sense to me. I know the town I live in is a bastion of sensible moderation, just like San Francisco.
“I have worked around the state with citizens who have just reacted to the extreme far right agenda of Scott Walker in a way I’ve never seen before,” Falk told POLITICO in an interview. “In Wisconsin, we don’t skew far left or skew far right. We just want good education, some health care, clean air and water and a decent job — very common sense values. The Governor Walker agenda has just torn the state apart.”
Yes, because budget surpluses, more jobs for teachers, and public employees actually paying a pittance for their Cadillac health insurance and pensions could only be attributed to “far right extremism”. Given that the majority of the state elected Walker into office, and proceeded to elect the pro-Walker SC Justice back into place last year, the state must just be overrun with far right extremists. It’s therefore understandable that Falk would fear such a movement in a state with no history of far left movements, or cities notable for being far left, or even acts of violence perpetrated by nutty leftists.
Honestly, we’re so moderate we make Mitt Romney look conservative. Severely so, even.
