Koch Brothers Hastily Trying to Stuff Deflated Scott Walker With Hundred Dollar Bills

http://www.politicalgarbagechute.com/koch-brothers-hastily-trying-to-stuff-deflated-scott-walker-with-hundred-dollar-bills/

The Scott Walker 2016 presidential campaign is in trouble. That’s the consensus among most political pundits from all over the political spectrum. He’s polling much lower than most in his party thought he would, helped by the fact that he can’t quite seem to get a clear message out that doesn’t heavily parrot front runner Donald Trump, who is sucking up most of the attention around the Republican primary. In a new twist, Walker’s flagging numbers have been matched by his literal deflation, as cubic foot after cubic foot of hot air escapes his mouth in a furious attempt to wrest control of the party back from Trump.

“All that flailing away at birthright citizenship, climate change, and abortion rights has left Governor Walker literally flat,” a Walker aide speaking on the condition of a breakfast burrito told us. “There were some structural integrity issues, and now he’s leaking hot air all over the place,” the Walker aide told us. According to sources close to the Walker camp, two of his biggest financial supporters — Charles and David Koch of Koch Industries — are starting to panic and are not furiously stuffing hundred dollar bills into Walker’s rapidly deflating silicone and polymer frame, hoping to keep him propped up with as much dark money as they can.

The plan, according to people close to the Kochs, is to keep stuffing one-hundred dollar bills into any empty cavities they can find in Walker’s structure, but focusing primarily on his large, bowl-shaped empty skull. It’s unclear at this stage, according to the same sources, if the Koch brothers are considering backing any other candidates. “They seem committed to propping up Scott Walker,” one source told us, “no matter how empty headed he seems to be.”

...

Though it’s unclear just how much money the Kochs are willing to keep stuffing into Walker to keep him inflated, a new SuperPAC has been formed expressly for collecting donations to help supplement their budget. Plump Up The Dud PAC says in their charter they are “completely committed to keeping flimsy, vapid demagogues with no real ideas of their own at the forefront of the debate,” and a spokesman for the group told us he is “extremely confident they can keep finding scared, rich, white conservatives to hand [them] money by the truck load” because “at the end of the day, they’re scared shitless of their taxes going up by a few pennies on the dollar and will just keep feeding the beast, no matter how abysmally he’s performing.”

1. One of the best parts of the campaign so far is the fall of Scott Walker.

I don't care how much money they throw at him. You can't fix a dim bulb.

2. Gee, and they did so well with Scott Brown, too. Must be losing their touch.

Or something.

It's been way too long since America had a President who dropped out of college in a snit, or is that just me?
