Walker Derangement Syndrome

Not since Sarah Palin was running for office have we seen the Left so unhinged about a candidate as they are about Scott Walker.  Their fear of him is palpable, and it is well founded - the Left threw everything they had at Walker in his recall election, and in his past election.  They failed miserably, and if Walker can replicate his election performance on a national scale, they'll go down in flames.  Big time.

Thus, a lot of activity has been taken by the media to catch Walker in a "gotcha" moment.  As such, Walker has to answer questions about Rudy Giulaini and whether President Obama is Christian or not.

Those are the pressing questions to which the media demands answers.

Unfortunately, the media didn't get the answers they wanted, so they're trying the salvage the meme of Walker as a know-nothing by gleefully reporting that "Walker doesn't know if Obama is Christian or not!"

In the meantime, Walker got the money quote on the record.  Here it is:  “To me, this is a classic example of why people hate Washington and, increasingly, they dislike the press,” he said. “The things they care about don’t even remotely come close to what you’re asking about.”

Walker said he does not believe that most Americans care about such matters.“People in the media will [judge], not everyday people,” he said. “I would defy you to come to Wisconsin. You could ask 100 people, and not one of them would say that this is a significant issue.”

Of course, he's right on.  This isn't about the economy, jobs, Obamacare, taxes, national security, Islamic jihad, terrorism, or anything else that people care about.  The only people that care what Walker thinks on mundane issues are Leftists that are looking to land their own Katie Couric moment and prove Walker to be the dummy that they all just know he is.

Thus far, Walker has refused to take the bait, and is actually scoring points with the electorate on his counter-punches.  We'll see if he can continue to do so, especially as the level of goading increases.
