WHO’S THE HOOLIGAN: Jennifer Rubin corrects Dana Milbank. “This is a particularly bizarre choice of invective given the circumstances. A hooligan is ‘a tough and aggressive or violent youth.’ That is an apt phrase (aside from the age factor) of the labor protesters and their Democratic allies. It was they, not Walker, who used Nazi imagery so offensive that the National Democratic Jewish Council was forced to condemn it. It was they, not Walker, who threatened lawmakers in their homes. . . . And it was the union protesters, not Walker, who came up with phony doctor’s notes to rip off the state by getting sick pay to which they were not entitled.”
