Talking to his shrinking base of supporters over WTMJ-AM Right Wing Newsradio via the Charlie Sykes show, Gov. Scott Walker today belitted the gigantic recall petition filing against him as "baseless," adding: "It's a lot easier to sign a recall petition than it is to vote."
Well, a few points of clarification are in order:
1. The "baseless" Walker recall signature total of nearly 1.12 million is close to the number of votes the boy wonder received to win the governorship in 2010 -- then Walker's own "base," and one he judged as such a huge mandate he immediately set about to transform the state's social, economic and political culture in quite radical ways. That's right: "Baseless" better describes Walker's own reaction.
