Why would Scott Walker ever leave college early? Did he murder a co-ed? Did he have to skip town? Surely there must be some kind of horrific scandal in his past. The answer couldn’t be as simple as pursuing a good job opportunity and avoiding mountains of student loan debt. Why else would the media be investigating the “mystery” of his college exit?
Yesterday, The Washington Post published an article entitled "As Scott Walker mulls White House bid, questions linger over college exit".
In the article, the author writes, "To most of the Class of 1990 — and, later, to Wisconsin’s political establishment — Walker’s decision to quit college has been a lingering mystery."
Glenn, Pat, and Stu didn't quite understand why it was such a big deal. As the article describes (far, far down the page), he found a job and despite his intentions to go back, never found the time. But it all worked out, he became the governor of Wisconsin after all.
"College is designed to prepare you to get a job," Stu said. "So he got a job, and he thought to himself, hey, why am I bothering to continue to prepare for the job I already have. And then he thought, hey, I'll come back and finish college later on, but then he was so successful, that he never did find the time to do it."
But it doesn't end with the college question. During a recent trip to London, Walker was asked if he believed in evolution.
"That's a question a politician shouldn't be involved with one way or the other. I'll leave that up to you," he responded.
"This is how a politician should answer that," Glenn said. "What the hell difference does it make? I'm a politician. I'm a human being. I'm not God. I have no idea how God creates. Did he create through evolution? Maybe. Ask him. I don't know. I'm not that guy. By the way, is the Big Bang right or is it wrong? You who would embrace evolution, you were the ones telling us that the Big Bang was real. I was the one who said I don't know. Maybe that's the way God creates, maybe it's not. I have no idea. But you doubled down and put all your chips down, and I guess I'm the one with credibility now because I said I don't know how God creates. You mocked me for saying, I don't know how God creates. And now you are the people saying, there's no such thing as the Big Bang. So what difference does it make?"
Scott Walker won a recent poll by the Drudge Report as the top pick for the GOP presidential nomination and was a second place in a poll conducted by Stu of the Glenn Beck audience.
