House of Kochs

Scott Walker, who with the backing of the Koch-Brothers has hopes of making it two out the the last three Presidents with the beady, close-set-eyes, of a stereotypical simpleton, has hit a snag. Perhaps a snag as metaphorically big as that created on the George Washington Bridge by his biggest competitor?
At a secret hearing the day before the 2010 election, an investigator for the Milwaukee County district attorney testified that he had uncovered email evidence that Scott Walker, then-county executive, was likely aware of campaigning by his staff on county time using laptops and a wireless internet router. That very afternoon, Nov. 1, 2010, officers seized computer hard drives and other equipment from the suite of offices occupied by Walker and his staff. The next day, Walker was elected governor.
Funny how it went down that way, huh? [cross-posted at Firedoglake]

It's Paul Ryan's turn.

If one divides the prospective entrants in the 2016 GOP goat rodeo into types, say, lions, tigers, monkeys and dogs, where does Walker fit?

Does he seem leonine? No. Tiger-ish? No. Monkey-like? Well, not as much as Newticles. Doggy? Not nearly as much as One-L.

He doesn't fit at all, because he's a weasel.
