I'll bet Sheldon Adelson is still laughing about Scott Walker's Molotov gaffe.
What's becoming very clear is just how shallow Scott Walker really is. It takes a real genius to get his own super majority party to vote his way...how does he do it? Throw in a little of that phony leadership and you've got Scott Walker, the memorizer-n-chief. Will he ever stop nodding his head during interviews?
So let's finally see some real outrage at another Walker gaffe. jsonline-Dan Bice:
President Barack Obama recently quoted a nonexistent Bible verse ("The Good Book says, don't throw stones in glass houses") to help sell his executive action on immigration, earning the scorn of his conservative foes.
But it appears that Gov. Scott Walker -- whose father was a Baptist minister -- made a similar mistake when talking to the Wall Street Journal last month about Obamacare and Medicaid.
“It’s probably not fair to ask the son of a preacher to use biblical metaphors. My reading of the Bible finds plenty of reminders that it’s better to teach someone to fish than to give them fish if they’re able. . . . Caring for the poor isn't the same as taking money from the federal government to lock more people into Medicaid.”The recently re-elected Republican governor is actually referencing an old Chinese proverb:
"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
But even this obvious mistake is really no mistake at all. In this Republican bubble world reality, there are no Walker mistakes. He even gets to rewrite the Bible:
Team Walker disagrees. "The governor specifically says it’s in his reading of the Bible," said Laurel Patrick, press secretary for Walker. "He’s not quoting scripture."
"It's technically true that Medicaid funding isn't in the bible, but the Chinese proverb Gov. Walker references isn't there either," said Scot Ross, head of the liberal group One Wisconsin Now.
Add to it Walker’s numbskull attempt at Yiddish, "Thank you again, and Molotov" in a letter to a Jewish lawyer, and you've got a walking word salad disaster. A typo, really?
