Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker revealed over and over again at CPAC yesterday that he’s not up to the task of confronting ISIS and doesn’t understand the threat. How bad was it? Even Rick Perry and the National Review thought he went too far.
First, Walker compared thousands of middle class Wisconsinites who protested his destructive policies to ISIS terrorists.
Then, trying to do damage control, he said that no, he didn’t meant to compare the two, but that the intensity was similar.
After that failed, he changed his story again, trotting out a spokesperson to try and cover up his failure to grasp the situation.
Finally, in a taped interview with Sean Hannity, Walker compared ISIS to a computer virus.
Maybe he should go back to punting. After all, better to keep one’s mouth closed and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
