But Walker didn't. So instead, we get this:
...The newly created Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. has dropped a little more than $43,000 to buy 73 iPads for everyone on the staff, including secretaries and other support employees.
OMG! The quasi-public agency responsible for crisp, up-to-the-minute, interstate (and international) business development and communications has purchased...........ahhhhh..........crisp, up-to-the-minute, business-communications devices!!! And they activated them, and will pay monthly fees, too!!
The editorial department went shopping at Best Buy and found laptops for $400.00. "So, HAH!" they scribble. EconDevel is a bunch of wastrels!! Budget-busters!! Drunken Sailors!!
Machines are purchased according to their purpose. One doesn't buy a 24" lawn mower for a 2-acre lawn, nor a bicycle for winter driving in Milwaukee. It's entirely possible that EconDevel knows what they're doing.
