Normally, I wouldn’t bother re-posting this, if it were merely a (decidedly delicious) case of “gotcha.” By pretending to be billionaire conservative puppet-master Koch, however, and by succeeding in having a 20-minute conversation with Walker in which Walker was convinced he was actually speaking to Koch, a great deal of interesting information about Walker’s mindset and intentions and other inside information is revealed. Go listen to the audio at TPMMuckraker, since the brilliant blog who dreamed up and successfully executed the plan, Buffalobeast, appears to be down right now. To whet your appetite, here’s just a small sample of the tidbits of Walker-“wisdom” you’ll hear:
Walker: Oh yeah, but who watches that? I went on “Morning Joe” this morning. I like it because I just like being combative with those guys, but, uh. You know they’re off the deep end.
“Koch”: Joe—Joe’s a good guy. He’s one of us.
Walker: Yeah, he’s all right. He was fair to me…[bashes NY Senator Chuck Schumer, who was also on the program.]
“Koch”: Beautiful; beautiful. You gotta love that Mika Brzezinski; she’s a real piece of ass.
Walker: Oh yeah.
