Walker is for certainty -- except when he isn't

[img_assist|nid=79334|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=220|height=157]Here is Scott Walker's own political version of the famous Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle in physics:

Republicans are for certainty -- except when that would benefit Democrats. Then, they're for uncertainty.

Walker, commenting on the Department of Revenue's decision to slam small "roll your own" cigaret shops:

"What we hear from employers all the time … is they want the certainty of knowing what the law is, what the rules are, that they're applied universally and across the board."

But when implementing the state's new Voter ID law, the Walker administration has told its Department of Transportation service centers that they are not to volunteer to citizens seeking the IDs the information that, under the law, they don't have to pay the usual $28 fee if they're only going to use the card to get a ballot at a polling place.

So, businesses need certainty to create jobs! But if you're an average citizen? Walker wants you to keep on guessing! Especially if you're a member of the opposition.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds. But deliberate inconsistency is the hobgoblin of little politicians like Walker.
