What? Walker Challenged On Facts?

How could anyone challenge the veracity of a politician whose statements have been rated true by PolitiFact 11% of the time?

Well, the unthinkable has happened, reports the Journal Sentinel:

Scott Walker opponents dispute details in upcoming book

Well, if you saw the Cap Times yesterday, Walker claims to have a dedicated line straight to the Almighty. So how could anyone question his veracity?

We should start a contest for alternate (more truthful) titles for his "book". I'll kick it off with a few that have been rattling around my noodle:

Under Investigation

Anyone else want to join in?

Love how the JS bails on doing any sort of investigative journalism by saying "opponents claim" Walker is being less than truthful. I think we have a few audio tapes of what Scotty's said to "David Koch" and the media. Why not, compare the book version to, you know, THE TAPE?

Oh, and put me down for "Uninhibited (By Facts)" for that book's real title

the book says he never actually considered planting troublemakers amid the act 10 protesters,he was just humoring the fake Koch. however, if he wanted to be polite he could have merely said, "I don't know if that's a good idea." and he told reporters the day after the call that he and his staff debated the idea. it's clear he did consider doing it, just as nixon wanted to enlist teamsters to attack antiwar protesters. it's also clear he thought of act 10 before the election, contrary to what the book says. ironically, maybe the book will cause more people to realize his true character.
