So This Will Be The Next Five Days' Hysteria

Scott Walker gave a bad answer.

Asked about ISIS, Walker responded, "If i can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the globe."

It's a dumb answer for the reasons Geraghty elucidates, though I don't know if I'd call it a "terrible" answer. I'd say Obama's, Earnest's, and Psaki's calculated and coordinated statements that Adaly Coulibaly gunned down five Jews "randomly" was a terrible answer. This one is just dopey.

I'm not really bothered by the dopiness of the answer -- I say dopey things too, and so do you, and so does President 57 Corpse-Mens.

It's more that I'm bothered at the opportunity lost. Every time one opens his mouth, one can say something interesting, insightful, stirring, or politically shrewd, or one can say something dopey, forgettable, or pointless.

It's not that I'm bothered that this statement is in the latter category so much as I'm bothered it's not in the first category.

As a one-time Rick Perry super-fan, I am of a mind that a candidate only gets a couple of chances to make a First impression. And failing to impress is failing.
