Walker (R) Prank-Called by Koch Impostor

Videos embedded below.

"What’s the most amazing thing about this episode? That Walker’s staff sent the call through to the governor without confirming that it was Koch? That the impostor managed to keep Walker talking for 20 minutes? Or that the most damning admission made during a supposed mindmeld between two giants of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy is Walker trying to trick the fugitive Democrats back to the Capitol with the promise of a meeting in order to create a quorum for a floor vote? So underwhelming was the resulting conversation that his staff actually issued a statement this morning acknowledging that it’s him on the recording and citing the audio as proof that he says the same things in private as in public. Even the choice of villain is a letdown: The Koch brothers are enjoying a vogue among lefty political activists as the billionaire Root Of All Evil, filling the same sort of niche that Soros fills on the right, but I’d guess maybe five percent of the general public knows who they are. And given that they’re supposed to be Walker’s sugar daddies yet he apparently can’t even recognize one of them over the phone, I’m not sure he has a real firm grasp on who they are either."
