Royally screwedIn poker it's called a "tell" -- an unconscious sign from your opponent indicating what's really going on in his head. The fellow licks his lips and you may have figured out from keen observation that means, for example, that he's planning to bluff.
Well, here's another "tell" for Gov. Scott Walker and his administration. To begin with, the Walkerites are infamous mouthers. Walker PR people will wade in at the slightest news of interest and turn out long, mostly ideological statements that may be off point but serve to soothe the boss and his enablers while reasserting his wrong-headed ideology. So whenever the Walker administration remains absolutely silent on a relatively big issue, that's one huge "tell." They don't just have nothing to say, they've less than nothing. For (and this is something Mitt Romney has in his presidential campaign been struggling to avoid, lately) if they uttered word one, it would be the wrong word and instantly show them up as the charlatans they are.
Two examples: One, the John Doe probe of the Walker administrations (both his Milwaukee County executive's tenure and now the state executive branch). He's not talking about the Doe, these days, because whenever he talked in the past about how he wasn't a target of the probe or how he was cooperating fully, his misstatements and misdirections always caught up with him.
