Chutzpah, Thy Name Is Scott 'Inept' Walker

Abby Zimet

Wow: In a speech to Texas conservatives, Wisconsin's Scott Walker bragged about the great job he's doing and asked for support to show that "collective bargaining is an expensive entitlement," even as his own state disintegrated into chaos. To wit: GOP-inspired redistricting has election clerks scrambling with errors in computer maps that put "many, many" voters in Africa; a new report says Walker may have violated campaign finance laws 1,115 times to the tune of $557,500 in fines; and a Walker billboard touting job creation was put up - and quickly taken down - at a General Motors plant that just closed, taking thousands of jobs with it. The Walker recall effort has reportedly  garnered almost a million and a half signatures, or three times more than required. It couldn't happen to a more deserving guy.
