Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Monday dismissed as 'ridiculous' a letter from a Democratic state Senate leader who suggested a meeting 'near the Wisconsin-Illinois border' to discuss the state's budget impasse.Wisconsin state Senator Scott Fitzgerald (R) also chimed in on the matter with a letter of his own which reads in part:
Dear Senator Miller,No. Let's not. I think we'd all benefit by focusing on exactly how odd it is for a minority of state senators to ask a majority of state senators to meet outside of the state that they all represent. That's what deposed despots do. They abandon their banana republic for a sympathetic neighboring country.
Thank you for your hand-delivered letter with an offer to meet, in Illinois, about the business and future direction of Wisconsin.
Let’s set aside how bizarre that is for a moment.
