We now know the name of the "prankster" who made this call to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. The dude is a blogger named Ian Murphy out of Buffalo, New York. Got to look this guy up on Facebook. I see a "beautiful" relationship in the works.

This is one of the funniest political pranks I have ever seen in my entire life. Trust me. I have pulled my fair share in the past, and this one is "priceless."
Congratulations to Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Tonight is my winner of the coveted: "Political Pirate of the Week Award." If you are a follower of my blog, you will know that "The Pirate" is only given out on "special" occasions. This is ONE of those TIMES!
The Clean Cut All-American Looking Guv is now a "political punchline" in the making.
Egg on face. Tele-Punk ed. Extreme Make OVER Gone Wild. What ever you want to call it, a twenty minute phone call to someone he thought was a "billionaire campaign contributor" is now the center of a new political controversy in the "Heartland" of America. It has hit You Tube this afternoon. Let the viral hits begin!

Walker has to be one of the most naive Governor's in America. He could be the new "Sarah Palin" of the Mid West. Opps. Did I just say that?

|Gov. Walker: PUNK ED!|
His bill to limit collective bargaining with Wisconsin teachers is now the new "political battle-cry" for 2011.
Walker took a call yesterday to discuss confidential strategies for pushing the bill controversial "union busting" bill through the legislative maze, when a New York blogger recorded the telephone call, and well, the rest is now "Political Fodder" for ALL TIME SAKES!
Instead of doing a long blog post about this, do yourself a favor and take 20 minutes to listen to the "Farce of the Week" take place. Then, ask yourself, is Walker serious about fixing the fiscal crisis in Wisconsin, or is he "not ready for prime time."
One thing for sure. After this stunt, Governor Walker could be headed to Saturday Night Live.
Bring on the PARODY!
