Who can forget Sarah Palin’s infamous foreign policy credentials? She would be perfect for the job, because you can see Russia from a remote island off the coast of Alaska.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker decided on Thursday to summon the spirit of stupidity, the same one that saw Palin’s political dreams go down in an electoral landslide, and claim something just as dumb:
If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world.
The response was to a question about how he would fight the terrorist group ISIS.
Walker was able to withstand a recall effort in 2012 that gave him national name-recognition after he proposed a budget that stripped unions of their collective bargaining rights.
[We will] send a message, not only that we’ll protect American soil, but do not take this upon freedom-loving people anywhere else in the world. We need a leader with that kind of confidence.
In short, Scott Walker is a complete buffoon. He’s playing to the extremist-right who for some reason believe that President Obama, and the next Democrat likely to replace him, aren’t “courageous” enough to lead. Only by taking the region by storm, Gadsden flags-a-wavin’, led by the Christian Patriot Militia do we have a chance to take our country back and spread freedom and constitutional republicanism (known as democracy to normal people) to the rest of the world.
After the buzz his statement created, because it makes him look like the fool that he is, Walker released this statement:
Let me be perfectly clear, I’m just pointing out the closest thing I have to handling this difficult situation is the 100,000 protesters I had to deal with.
No, you said “if I can take on protesters, I can do the same across the world.” You made a silly statement, now you’re backpedaling.
Walker added that, “You all will misconstrue things the way you see fit. That’s the closest thing I have in terms of handling a difficult situation, not that there’s any parallel between the two.”
It certainly seemed like you were trying to make a connection.
Tell us, Governor, did you realize how idiotic you sounded all on your own or did John McCain call you and tell you he was ashamed of you?
Democrats can only hope this clown gets the Republican nomination. maybe he’ll toss the VP nod back to Palin. The circle of stupid would then be complete.
