David Koch to Scott Walker: “Boy, Fetch Me a Left-Handed Monkey Wrench and a Skyhook”

Scott Walker just got a fantastic deal on some oceanfront property in Nebraska.

I usually try not to post on the same thing that ten jillion other people have already posted on. But when America’s Favorite Asswipe gets punked, what’s a boy to do?

You probably know about this already: A telephone prankster, Ian Murphy, called up Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, pretending to be David Koch — aka Scott Walker’s owner/pimp/puppetmaster.

Here’s a YouTube link. It’s only ten minutes of the 20-minute conversation.

The most telling thing about the conversation is Scott Walker’s tone; his manner. S.W. Anderson nailed it perfectly in the comment section of my previous post: Walker “sounds exactly like a junior executive on the phone with his CEO.”

If there was ever any doubt, it’s been removed: Scott Walker is completely owned and operated, lock stock and barrel, by the Koch Brothers. If he was literally a prostitute — instead of figuratively — he’d have “Property of Koch Industries” tattooed on his butt.

Thanks for the mention, but your headline beats what I had to say. Good one, Tom!

SW: Thanks. I'm glad lots of people are posting on this whole issue in Wisconsin. There's a lot at stake.

Thanks for the link. I actually read this yesterday on a borrowed computer. Mine is in the shop. The video really paints him up as a lackey. Your junior executive comparison is spot on.

MRM: He's definitely a lackey. I kept expecting him to answer Koch's questions with Yes Sir and No Sir.
