Jeb Lund: Walker Should Just Give Up

The way he's getting burned, Walker should start wearing asbestos undies
Jeb Lund: Walker Should Just Give Up

On Friday, Susie Madrak pointed out an article from Politico which just ravished Scott Walker and his endless string of campaign failures.

But that wasn't the only burn that Walker has gotten in the past day or two.

Jeb Lund, writing at The Guardian, simply lights it up in a must read article. Lund writes one of the most thorough take downs of Walker's gaffes, flubs and foibles - everything from his lame excuse on getting a bald spot to the Canadian wall.

Lund then ends it with this money quote:

The longer a presidential campaign goes on, the more fundamental truths you inevitably encounter, usually things the candidates and their handlers labor tirelessly to obscure. But sometimes the revelations come fast, and when they do, they are usually particularly unkind.

Scott Walker should’ve been the Republicans’ – or at least the Koch Brothers’ – Dark Money Knight, riding manfully to Washington on his union-busting, climate-change-denying Harley, driving the real career politicians from the city like Sobieski lifting the siege of Vienna. Instead, he’s looking more like a man destined to return to Madison with a wad of Delta Sky Miles to haunt the capitol tunnels, a wraith occasionally seizing hapless passersby at underground crossroads and demanding they tell him if they’ve seen Ronald Reagan, what causes male-pattern baldness and how big Canada is.
