Is Scott Walker Wisconsin’s Sarah Palin?

I have a hunch that Scott Walker is trying very hard to be Wisconsin's Sarah Palin. I don't mean to be demeaning to Scott but many of his actions support such a statement. Just take a look at some of them:

  1. Hate on the Recovery Act. CHECK!
  2. Make comments about which people are "real" and which are not. CHECK!
  3. Talk a lot and whip up the base but say nothing of real substance. CHECK!
  4. Become the fav of GOP Fairgoers in Kenosha County. CHECK!

Do you see what I mean now? He seems to be following in Sarah Palin's very footsteps! Maybe this is the only kind of (fringe) candidate that appeals to members of the GOP in Wisconsin. Unfortunately for them, it is not something that appeals to the Democrats and Independents that make up the majority of the voting public in Wisconsin.

Since he clearly seems to be following Palin's play book I'm just wondering when we can expect him to quit his current job?

Walker has many policies that I disagree with, but he is a far cry from Palin. He more intelligent and articulate and until he says we may need to go war with Russia, it is unfair to toss him in with her. Let him stand on his own without resorting to slurs.

i'm just having some fun at his expense, but i don't think that makes it a "slur".

that being said, if you look at the things that i listed he does have all of those in common with her.

He wouldn't say that he wants war with Russia. He is already at war with Milwaukee County and with reality. Losing both wars, too.

Come to think of it, this is more of a slam on Sara Palin. At least she finished college.

He can't be the next Sarah Palin. Nobody would watch a flick called "Nailin' Walker."
