Walker gives lobbyist's college dropout son an $81,000-a-year job

It's good to be born to people who know people.

That's largely the perception many Wisconinites are taking away from this weekend's revelation that the son of a major political donor to Republican Governor Scott Walker landed a very well-heeled post in the state's Department of Commerce with apparent ease.

His qualifications: dropping out of college, working for a few Republicans, working for a lobbyist shop and getting busted a couple times for DUI.

Most guys in their mid-20s would be staring down a decade of riding the bus after a couple drunk driving convictions.

1. College is for dopes apparently
look at Scott Walker, he was kicked out of college and hes doing pretty well at destroying parts of America.
