The Not-Ready-for–Prime-Time Budget (from the Not-Ready-for–Prime-Time Governor)

Conservatives have described Scott Walker, in his undeclared run for President (I choke as I type that phrase), as “not ready for prime time.” They cite his flip-flopping, his handling of the Liz Mair hiring/firing resignation, and his inability to answer expected questions.

What they don’t cite is Walker’s inability to govern, an inability that […]

Today the Wisconsin Department of Transportation said they were rejecting their totally unpopular proposal to expand I-94 from 16th Street to 70th Street by creating a double decker freeway:

The proposed expansion of the I-94 east-west freeway between 16th and 70th streets in Milwaukee will be accomplished in the traditional way by adding a lane […]

London calling…

And Walker won’t (or can’t) answer a simple, direct question about evolution. Or the Islamic State. Or the EU. Or Ukraine. Or foreign policy.

Why? Because it isn’t polite to comment on these topics when you’re in a foreign country. Or to undermine your President on foreign soil. It shouldn’t be a big surprize that […]
