Walker On 'Koch' Phone Call: 'I Take Phone Calls All The Time'
Source: Talking Points Memo

Regarding the idea of planting agitators in the crowds, Walker said: "We've had all sorts of options brought to us by staff and lawmakers and people across the state, but as you heard we dismissed them."

Regarding the idea of bringing the Democrats into the Capitol to talk, only to have the Republicans use their presence in the building to declare the Senate in session for the budget -- as Walker said in the call, "I'm not negotiating". Walker said in the presser: "I'm willing to talk, but ultimately I think it has to lead to a vote. I don't think that's a trick."

When the Q&A was over, Democratic state Rep. Brett Hulsey -- who had gotten in the room before the press conference began, took the governor's podium to give his own remarks and to take questions from reporters.

At this point, some young staffers from the governor's office opened the double-doors wide open -- so that the sounds of the thousands of protesters came pouring in, drowning out Hulsey. The reporters then asked for the doors to be closed, but the young men stayed at the doors, keeping them fully open.

3. 'I Take Phone Calls All The Time'
Hilarious!

Almost as good as Larry Craig's "I'm not gay" press conference opener: "I'm glad you could all come out today."

5. Ya, but how many of them do you admit to felonies?
Well, time will tell on that one since your phone and email records are in the process of being subpoenaed.
