Madison, WI - You would think that Governor Walker would have learned his lesson after a blogger prank-called him last month, posing as conservative billionaire industrialist David Koch. But he hasn't, and he has been punked again. This time it was an--as yet--unidentified writer at The Spoof.
Posing as Lt. General Ramsey MacDonald, he called the governors cell phone and recorded the conversation.
The transcripts are below.
Walker? This is Lt. General MacDonald, Commander, Wisconsin Air National Guard. How are you sir?
Walker- Very good General, thank you. To what do I owe this pleasure?
Prankster- Well sir, We haven't heard from you during this crisis. We just wanted to let you know, the Army and Air Guard are standing by, sir. We are ready to assist at any time.
Walker- Great, great to hear. What did you have in mind?
Prankster- Well sir, the army of course can roll out some infantry troops. We wouldn't have to declare martial law, just a surgical strike against those commie union terrorists. The Air Guard of course, would support that with fighter strikes.
Walker- Wow! Would you really do that? I mean, ahh, that could be a little controversial. You know those liberal media types would scream bloody murder!
Prankster- It wouldn't have to come back to you sir. Give the OK and we will make sure it looks like there were some bona fide domestic terrorists leading the protestors.
Walker- So it would be the right thing to do....
Prankster- Yes sir. It takes balls to make the call. But Kadhafi did it in Libya, and he's sure stickin' it to Obama and Clinton, isn't he?
Walker- OK. But you gotta make sure it doesn't come back on me.
Prankster- Yes sir.
Walker- So what do you want from me on return, I mean, ahh...
Prankster- We don't need any favors in return. Just keep doing what you're doing, providing the leadership.
Walker- OK! You know, I was just reflecting the other day about how history will view my role as a leader. The more I ponder it the more I know how my talent will be appreciated, how much....
Prankster- Excuse me sir. It's best we don't speak together too long on this line. I'd better be going now to plan the strikes.
Waller - OK then. Good hunting!
Prankster- Thank you sir. Good by.
We could have kept Governor Walker on the line much longer, but we felt we had more than enough--frankly we couldn't stomach any of the Governor's vainglorious musing, and we didn't want to take a chance that he might catch on. So far no word from the Governors Office.
