Vicki McKenna to punish large Bernie Sanders crowd: We should move State Capitol.

93.7's Sly, where you can hear the whole podcast at Slys Office, must have driven off the road when he heard this ridiculous threat on the radio.

Conservative banshee Vicki McKenna had a message for Madison liberals; We will disconnect Madison, the state Capitol and "center of Wisconsin government," as a way to punish the 10,000 liberal voters who turned out to see their presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. How dare they!

As surreal as that might seem, and a blatant violation of the 1st Amendment to boot, getting back at liberals by moving the seat of government is actual talk show fodder. She might say it was just a tongue and cheek comment, but who would get an idea like that in the first place?

Don't forget, Republicans are now going to allow "outside" bids for state office building locations, which could send government off to every corner of the state. They say it gives the boonies a chance to have a say in government and get some of those elitist public jobs too.

More than anything, McKenna demonstrates just how conservatives think; punish and discourage dissenters, belittle protesters, marginalize Democrats, all the while claiming to support the Constitution and our God given freedoms. Happy 4th folks, here's the audio:
