Apparently Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker doesn’t lack a sense of humor. On the left’s faux holiday of Earth Day today, Walker fired 57 workers at one of the state’s environmental agencies! Now, THAT is hilarious.

Wisconsin’s Republican Governor may not be perfect on every issue, but many of the things he does just HAS to warm the heart of any small government supporter. And Walker’s actions today on Earth Day[1] are a perfect example.

Fifty-seven employees of the state Department of Natural Resources began receiving formal notices this week that they might face layoff as part of Gov. Scott Walker’s budget for the next two fiscal years.

DNR spokesman Bill Cosh said that of that number, 27 employees are in the Bureau of Science Services, a unit of the DNR where Walker is proposing significant cuts.

The bureau performs significant research duties for the DNR, and the cuts have come under fire from wildlife and environmental groups who say research is the underpinning of many agency activities.

Sometimes you just gotta love Walker!
