It seems that politicians in Cheeseland aren't confident in their abilities, but that's not a shock. This is a state who can't balance their budget without tearing down unions.
When trying to get a laugh in the Windy City, they have to do it at the expense of Jay Cutler. Both Democrats and Republicans took a shot at the Bears QB recently.
First up, Republican Paul Ryan, who joked about Cutler in our very own city:
"I want to thank you all for inviting me to speak. It was especially gracious of you to host me, even though I’m a Packers fan and I assume most of you are Bears fans," Ryan began. "But that doesn't mean we can't work together. As chairman of the House Budget Committee, I stand ready to do whatever it takes to help you re-sign Jay Cutler. I'm here to talk about the economy today -- about the need to get four quarters of strong, consistent performance. That wasn't another Jay Cutler joke, I swear. It could be, but it's not."
OH! HAHA! THAT'S HILARIOUS! See, it's funny because Jay Cutler hurt his knee and injuries are hilarious. The Democrats piled on:
"Republicans would be better off with Jay Cutler as their candidate in Wisconsin. Cutler has at least helped the Green Bay Packers win a Super Bowl, while Tommy G. Thompson has spent the last decade doing the bidding of the Bush administration and his special-interest clients at his lobbying firm," Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman Matt Canter said.
Look, we get making fun of Cutler. We do it all the time. But he's OURS. Only we can make fun of him.
Cheeseheads who think they can come into our city and make fun of our QB border on the classless.
Hold that. They actually cross the line.
Do we come into your dairy fields and make fun of Aaron Rodgers concussions? Or step onto your frozen lakes during ice-fishing season and rip on Chad Clifton's knee? No. Because Chicagoans are too classy for that. So please, stay out of our city -- because we actually have one of those -- with your tired, tired Jay Cutler jokes.
