Karl Rove in Milwaukee sponsored by Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC)

Because Karl Rove is the exactly the kind of guy to represent the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce.

From The Journal

Rove will be in town at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Milwaukee Athletic Club to provide a briefing to WMC members on the Employee Free Choice Act. His talk is expected to last 1 1/2 hours.

WMC spokesman Jim Pugh said the event is not open to the general public. He declined to say who was underwriting Rove's talk.

"That's a private matter," he said.

The employee choice act, a federal bill currently before Congress, would make it easier for unions to organize by allowing one to form if a majority of the employees sign cards saying they want to unionize. Last year, the measure passed the House but stalled in the Senate.

Private? Hm. It is for now.

The Milwaukee Area Labor Council suggests showing up and letting him know how you feel: from Xoff: Rave at Rove on Tuesday
Let's talk up the unions and show America that working people in Wisconsin back the EMPLOYEE FREE CHOICE ACT. Come and show your support!

Date: Tuesday May 19, 2009
Time: 8:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m.
Where: Milwaukee Athletic Club, 758 N Broadway, Milwaukee, WI

As the old Kinks song goes, "Predictable, that's the word of the year."

Good on the WMC, I say. The more time Tom DeLay spends on the rubber chicken circuit, the less time he has to spread his obnoxious drivel here in Texas. ;)
