Grading Scott Walker's WaPo editorial

Editorial by Walker misleads and lies to its audience

Gov. Scott Walker recently penned an op-ed to the Washington Post titled, “What Wisconsin can teach Washington.” In it, Walker describes the calamitous state he supposedly inherited, and how he improved things (in his own mind, at least).

I took a look at the article, printed it out in fact so that I could make notes on the sides. What started off as reading material started to resemble a graded assignment from an educator who wasn’t satisfied with their pupil’s work.

And frankly, how can you blame me? The article that Walker wrote is so riddled with misdirections and statements that are flat-out lies that, by the end of my reading, there was more red ink on the page than black.

That’s never a good sign.

So here’s Scott Walker, graded. Enjoy:
