Oh, How Soon They Forget

I pwned Leiben­thal on this fact last night, but it appears the rest of the urchins are par­rot­ing his post last night on the news of the Walker Campaign’s lat­est hire need a his­tory les­son as well.

With all the excite­ment of the hire of Ms. Jill Bader to  the Walker cam­paign, the name “Anson Kaye” appears to have been lost on the polit­i­cal blog­ging left of Wisconsin.

Gov­er­nor Jim Doyle today announced the appoint­ment of Anson Kaye as Senior Pol­icy Advi­sor.  Kaye most recently served as the Chief of Staff for Con­gress­man Anthony Weiner of New York in Wash­ing­ton, D.C.  Kaye also served as Weiner’s Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Direc­tor and Senior Advi­sor dur­ing his recent cam­paign for mayor of New York City.

Anson brings with him a wealth of expe­ri­ence from Wash­ing­ton, D.C., New York, and Boston, and we are for­tu­nate that he has decided to join us here in the Mid­west,” Gov­er­nor Doyle said.  “He will be a vital mem­ber of my Admin­is­tra­tion as we con­tinue the impor­tant work of invest­ing in kids, grow­ing our econ­omy, expand­ing access to health care, and pro­tect­ing taxpayers.”

Before serv­ing Anthony Weiner in his con­gres­sional office and on his may­oral cam­paign, Kaye was the Press Sec­re­tary for Mid­dle­sex Dis­trict Attor­ney Martha Coak­ley in Mass­a­chu­setts.  Kaye received his J.D. from George Wash­ing­ton Uni­ver­sity Law School in 1997 and grad­u­ated Cum Laude from Bran­deis Uni­ver­sity in 1991.

Anson Kaye’s appoint­ment fills the vacancy left by for­mer Senior Pol­icy Advi­sor Kirk Brown.

The “Senior Pol­icy Advi­sor” job was a total smoke­screen, within three months, Kaye was the spokesman for the 2006 Doyle re-election campaign.

But hey, why let a lit­tle thing like the past his­tory screw up a meme that cap­per thinks will gain trac­tion with the elec­torate.  (Um, Chris, it won’t.)

Typ­i­cally no one cares what a cam­paign mouth­piece is say­ing in the first place, why would they care where they’re from?

    You know, I just don’t know who is start­ing to sound more des­per­ate, you, Aaron Rodriguez or Walker.

    The point that you refuse to acknowl­edge, is that it is Walker, not Doyle (who isn’t run­ning BTW) as “Believe in Wis­con­sin Again” but con­tin­u­ously hires from out­side of Wisconsin.

    The only per­son you pwned is yourself.

    But thanks for playing.

    Urchins?

    C’mon Kevin, you can do bet­ter than to resort to child­ish name calling.

    Matt, where’s the name call­ing in the post you referenced?

    Where did I refer to any­one as an “urchin?”

  • Matt

    No, but using a sex­u­ally pejo­ra­tive term to describe folks with a dif­fer­ent polit­i­cal view is pretty child­ish. I’m just sayin’.
