  • Tilt Your Kilt, Senator?

    Posted by Shannon Love on February 17th, 2011 (All posts by )

    OMG, LOL, ROFL and other internet acronyms for hilarity.

    The anti-democracy Wisconsin Democrat senators who fled the state to prevent the democratic process from working were found in Illinois shacked up in a hotel that had a Scottish Pub themed Hooters-like restaurant called, and I’m not making this up, “The Tilted Kilt.” [h/t Instapundit]

    Given that people already think that politicians are sleazy, everyone’s minds will instantly jump to the most salacious interpretation for the good senators’ choice of hideouts. Expect the phrase, “titled kilt” to become a big joke in Wisconsin and probably nationally. Their carelessness (or arrogance) in their choice of hideouts has converted the senators’ escapade from a principled last stand into a smirking joke.

    My spouse, ever willing to rub things in, humorously suggested calling up senators’ offices tomorrow and asking if the good senator, “got his kilt tilted,” during his little flight from law.

    It’s not a bad idea. Humor and mockery are the most effective, and most justified, political weapons of all.

      As my yiddishe mama used to say, what starts with kilts will end up in the quilts.

      That’s what they get for trying to skirt their responsibilities!

      C’mon, give ’em a break Shannon. The Tilted Quilt is one of few non-union businesses left in Rockford – one of the few businesses still operating in Rockford at all, for that matter. This once mighty manufacturing town now has the highest unemployment rate in Illinois, and well above the national average. Organized labor killed off the rest of the jobs in Rockford. The senators are most likely in the Tilted Quit passing out union literature.

      There is a bit of irony that the senators bailed out of Wisconsin to abet their union pals, only to hole up swilling suds in a non-union joint like the Tilted Kilt.
