He won Journal Sentinel endorsements in five elections since 2002... are they still trusting this and endorsing him?
"I want a commander-in-chief who will do everything in their power to ensure that the threat from radical Islamic terrorists does not wash up on America soil," said Walker.
"We need a leader with that kind of confidence. If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world," Walker said, who drew repeated cheers from the audience at CPAC (the Conservative Political Action Conference), an annual gathering that draws thousands of attendees and hundreds of journalists.
A bit of commentary. There hasn't been a Wisconsin political figure this reckless and self-absorbed since Joe McCarthy.

Let's face it: Walker still thinks he's calling into local righty talk radio love fest. He's not equipped to lead the country, manage the military, talk to world leaders, etc.

And can the newspaper tell its readers which life lesson is on display here which it said uncritically that Walker had absorbed at his father's Iowa church?

Modestly? Humility? Proportion? 

Walker got slammed by a National Review blogger for his protestors=ISIS conflation.

Will the Journal Sentinel editorial board step up with a full-throated, hard-copy editorial rip at Walker, or dole out another of the wrist-taps it's been doling out on its editorial blog?

Sorry, Jim, MJ will never reject Walker. Too many customers would be offended.

Haynes's column today was far short of a full-throated condemnation. Will the column represent all we're going to read from the editorial board about this?
