If St. Dutch Was "The Gipper," Then Scott Walker Is "The Punter"

The Dumbos have quite a parade of wannabes for the brass ring (POTUS 45) and the latest front-runner is Governor Scott Walker (R-WI). Interestingly, Walker is leery of alienating his Dumbo/Teabagger base by speaking about evo... (the word we dare not name). This Dumbo wants to be the first college dropout in the White House. Walker's base loves his college record. If this is a (fair & balanced) measure of dumbness, so be it.

“When he was asked about his belief in evolution, Mr. Walker said, ‘I’m going to punt on that one.’”
— The New York Times

In Iowa, the GOP contains
A bloc of folks convinced that Darwin’s wrong.
So when the subject’s raised, it’s no surprise
If every candidate is fourth and long. Ω
