Walker: --into your checking account and instead--you still get a check, but the check has to be personally picked up and he's instructing them--which we just loved--to lock them in their desk on the floor of the state Senate.
Koch: Now you're not talking to any of these Democrat bastards, are you?
Walker: Ah, I--there's one guy that's actually voted with me on a bunch of things I called on Saturday for about 45 minutes, mainly to tell him that while I appreciate his friendship and he's worked with us on other things, to tell him I wasn't going to budge.
Koch: Goddamn right!
Walker: "his name is Tim Cullen--
Koch: All right, I'll have to give that man a call.
Walker: Well, actually, in his case I wouldn't call him and I'll tell you why: he's pretty reasonable but he's not one of us"
Koch: Now who can we get to budge on this collective bargaining?
Walker: "I think the paycheck will have an impact"secondly, one of the things we're looking at next"we're still waiting on an opinion to see if the unions have been paying to put these guys up out of state. We think there's at minimum an ethics violation if not an outright felony.
Koch: Well, they're probably putting hobos in suits.
Koch: That's what we do. Sometimes.
Walker: I mean paying for the senators to be put up. I know they're paying for these guy--I mean, people can pay for protesters to come in and that's not an ethics code, but, I mean, literally if the unions are paying the 14 senators--their food, their lodging, anything like that"[* Important regarding his later acceptance of a Koch offer to "show him a good time."*]
[I was stunned. I am stunned. In the interest of expediting the release of this story, here are the juiciest bits:]
Walker: "I've got layoff notices ready"
Koch: Beautiful; beautiful. Gotta crush that union.
