    He’s back

    Glad to see Eric’s byline back. I was worried about the cryptic Micheal Conrad references.

    There Was no There There

    Governor Walker’s appeal, such as it is, is about attitude, and it was his misfortune to try to run in a year when there were bigger attitudes in the race. He never struck me as the most profound thinker in the political world, and it was evident that he was out of his depth in anything approaching presidential-level policy.

    …and thank you Walker for wisely stepping down

    Walker did one thing few can accomplish…wave goodbye to his bid for the republican candidacy and pat himself on the back at the same time.

    He thanked staff and family and supporters and God’s support too…so which god supported him…the god of benedictions, the god of profit and gain; the god of ignorance…my god there are so many gods before him here, hard to understand which one qualifies for the ‘thanking’…
