First off, let me say that I wouldn’t give this award out to just anyone, or without due consideration. Over the years here at Blogging Blue I’ve been taken to task by readers, other contributors and commenters alike for my occasionally crude and insulting style of prose, like the time I dubbed a group of GOP state legislators ” The Ass Clown Caucus ” when they said they’d support arresting federal officials attempting to implement the Affordable Care Act in Wisconsin. But I don’t crave the scorn of my peers. I don’t lie in wait hoping for an opportunity to offend. But sometimes a guy has no choice.

So congratulations, Governor Walker. You’ve been awarded Blogging Blue’s prestigious ” Dumbass of The Year ” award. It was a crowded field, without a doubt, what with Louis Gohmert, Glenn Grothman and Ron Johnson always viable contenders, and of course the late breaking challenge from Sean Duffy who said it’s the smart, well read folks who refuse to vaccinate their children, but your speech to the CPAC convention during which you implied that if you could take on 100,000 Wisconsin protesters then surely you could take on ISIS, well, that’s the kind of thing only a truly committed, truly serious Dumbass would even think of saying.

Well done, Mr. Walker, well done.

    And having to negotiate with WI state employee union leaders prepared him to negotiate with Putin… oh, wait a minute there…

    • Jake formerly of the LP says:

      That’s the thing! When did Walker ever head out to the crowds to discuss the matter, or even talked for one minute with AFSC,E and other public employee unions? NEVER! He hid out in his office and ducked through tunnels, and whined to Sykes, Belling and Icki on AM radio, scripting their interviews along the way.

      This puppet would be guaranteed to do the wrong thing with ISIS or any other foreign relation. He’s going down the drain hard outside of bubble-world.

      • Man MKE says:

        Absolutely right. Heck, even Nixon once stepped out to the Lincoln Memorial and, to his credit, chatted up Vietnam war protesters there in the summer night air. Walker is very Nixonesque in many ways, but he simply hasn’t the guts to do something like that.

    If it were not so sad, it might be funny. He honestly believes everything he says. This poor sick man.

  3. John Harper says:

    that was a dumb comment for sure I will not argue that point at all.

    I would say it is as equally dumb as our president saying ISIS was a JV team…. maybe that is the ISIS Scott Walker was referring to

    • John Casper says:

      John H. although it’s an oversimplification, in the Middle East the civil war among Moslems is primarily among Sunni (Saudi Arabia, Iraq…) and Shia (Iran….) So if you or Gov. Walker, or Obama want to pummel ISIS, you’re helping Iran.

      Sacrificing the lives of US soldiers was never about anything besides using 9/11 to help our oil industry steal other countries oil. Invading Iraq really pissed off the Saudi Royal family, because Saddam was their military counterweight to Iran. And now they’re getting their revenge by driving down the price of oil to $50/barrel and that’s killing oil and shale jobs in Texas, North Dakota. ….. so when all those firms go out of business, they can raise the price back to $150/barrel. Koch brothers are really pissed.

      TROOPS (and drones).

  4. Is there any way he can be declared mentally incompetent and removed?

  5. Duane12 says:

    I move we make it unanimous.

  6. Man MKE says:

    We must immediately call an extraordinary dumbass session, to make this official by a voice vote; limit debate so we can ram this through before others less worthy come along, demanding to be considered dumbasses.

  7. lufthase says:

    In the ISIS clip, Walker starts out talking about what he wants in a President, then at the end he pivots to “…I can do the same across the world.”

    He’s obviously been campaigning for President for a long time, but his wording has always been more coy and indirect… describing the “leadership” America needs in a way that it fits his own idea of himself, etc. This is the first time I’ve noticed him overtly say “I can do this. I would be a good President.”

    He hasn’t officially announced his candidacy or formed an exploratory committee; he just has the Revival PAC. Could his statement here (and the checks that were likely written in its immediate aftermath) get him in trouble with the FEC? Just trying to give Scotty his due. There might be some extra-bonus-dumbass points up for grabs here beyond the obvious ISIS nonsense.

  8. I swear to God I didn’t know of Mark Salter’s facebook comment before I put up this post, and I’d actually like to think Salter somehow saw my post on Facebook and grabbed at an opportunity, but it appears I’m not the only person out there who thinks Scott Walker is a Dumbass.–2015-2#ixzz3SzTzamKB
