Scott Walker thinks that the American people are dumb. Really dumb.

Walker, who has been in politics his entire adult life, is now claiming that he is not a career politician.

No, really:

Gov. Scott Walker denies he’s a career politician — even though he has been in elected office since he was 25 years old and first ran for office when he was 22.

The 47-year-old Republican presidential contender said in an interview with CNBC, released Tuesday, that he is “just a normal guy” and rejects the career politician label despite being in politics for most of his adult life.

“A career politician, in my mind, is somebody who’s been in Congress for 25 years,” Walker said.

Walker ran for the state Assembly representing Milwaukee in 1990 when he was 22 and lost. He then moved to a more conservative suburb and ran again in 1993 and won. He hasn’t lost an election since.

Walker served nine years in the Assembly, eight years as Milwaukee County executive and is now in his fifth year as governor.

What the article fails to include is that Walker was also in the student senate at Marquette University and had an unsuccessful run at being the president before dropping out/being kicked out.

But according to Walker, none of that counts because it wasn't in Congress.

Walker said that he prefers to think of himself as a public servant. In Walkerese, however, the public is the dark money groups and the billionaires that fund them.

I told you Walker thinks we are dumb.
