Here’s one from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, proving once again that ignorance still knows no bounds, whether it is in the analog world or the social media world:

For the second time in less than four months, Gov. Scott Walker has fired an aide for making demeaning comments about Hispanics on social media.

Walker — who has been calling on fellow Republicans to do more to reach out to minority voters — ousted Taylor Palmisano as his campaign’s deputy finance director on Tuesday. The first-term governor made the move after No Quarter contacted his campaign regarding the inflammatory tweets.

If you recall, Walker had to deal with something similar earlier this year, when one of his assistant deputy secretaries compared undocumented immigrants to Satan.

And Walker wants to run for President in 2016? Maybe he should hold “No Mames” classes to his staff and political appointees. What the hell is going on in Wisconsin?
