Scott Walker's Bald Spot
October 18, 2014

Oh, the things that pass for news today:

As Gov. Scott Walker was wrapping up his visit Monday with the State Journal editorial board, he joked with cartoonist Phil Hands that Hands draws his ears too big — but said the cartoonist’s portrayal of his bald spot was accurate.

The governor continued.

The bald spot, he said, was the result of a repair incident in the kitchen when he banged his head on an open kitchen cabinet door while making repairs requested by his wife, Tonette.

She kept telling him to go to the doctor to get the scar on his head looked at, he said. When he finally did, the doctor said his hair would never grow back in that spot, the governor explained.

Tonette still points to the bald spot as a reminder that he should always listen to his wife, he said

I fail to see how this is pertinent to anything, but even with such an innocuous subject such as Walker's baldspot, it would seem that he can't even tell the truth about that.

To believe that Walker's bald spot came from banging his head on a cabinet door, he had to have been charging it like a rhino (or is it RINO?).  I mean, look at the size of the thing:


If one were to believe Walker on this silliness, then one would have to believe that the most males are clumsy oafs, given how many of us, including myself, have bald spots.  Funny thing is I don't remember hitting my head.  I always thought it was just male pattern baldness.

UPDATE: After further research, we did find a mark on his bald spot, but I don't think it had a thing to do with any cabinet door:
