Scott Walker Dodges, Slips, Falls Into Own Slime, On Fox News Yet

In the wake of last week's release of 27,000 damning pages of emails from former aides and allies under investigation for being, as many suspected, liars, cheaters, grifters, hacks, political opportunists and out-and-out bigots - with scorching comments on Jews, blacks, gays, undocumented immigrants and "crazy people" - Scott Walker has stuck to the old "nothing to see" approach every time he's asked about his own involvement in the Walkergate scandal. So it was that in Sunday's appearance on the once-and-friendly Fox News, he was blithely rolling along with the usual lies and talking points about what a swell job he's done with Wisconsin's economy - now in the toilet - when Chris Wallace up and started acting like a journalist, asking Walker if he knew about a secret email system uncovered in the investigation. The perturbed Walker quickly dodged, hemming and hawing that "this is old news" and he is not a criminal and he has nothing to say and now let's talk about our great economy. To which Wallace improbably retorted that actually it's "new news" to many and "big news" in Wisconsin media and what's up with that? More dodging by Walker, followed by Wallace's "But sir, you're not answering my question." See Walker - once he of the Presidential ambitions, now toast - crash and burn.
