“He is so strikingly Nixonian that I cannot (turn away) out of fascination. It’s kind of like the moth to the candle, I keep an eye on him. And I am likely to see pigs flying before he’s president.”
— former Richard Nixon aide John W. Dean, on Gov. Scott Walker
Dean had lots to say about the current state of the GOP (and how his old boss would have meshed with it) in an extensive interview with Paul Fanlund.
That interview fits in neatly with Dave Zweifel’s column Friday, which noted that since they’ve gerrymandered themselves a majority, the only people Wisconsin GOP legislators need to listen to is each other.
If Walker does want to become president before pigs fly, he should show some kind of economic progress in Wisconsin. That must be why he keeps touting a “ranking” from the Philly Fed that the Philly Fed keeps saying is definitely not a ranking.
Another reason why Walker doesn't have much of a chance to be president is his post high school academic record. He's a drop out/push out from Marquette. The last time we had a president without a college degree was when Vice President Truman succeeded FDR. And Walker is certainly no Give 'em Hell Harry.
