Walker's Bald Spot

Oh, the things that pass for news today:
As Gov. Scott Walker was wrapping up his visit Monday with the State Journal editorial board, he joked with cartoonist Phil Hands that Hands draws his ears too big — but said the cartoonist’s portrayal of his bald spot was accurate.

The governor continued.

The bald spot, he said, was the result of a repair incident in the kitchen when he banged his head on an open kitchen cabinet door while making repairs requested by his wife, Tonette.

She kept telling him to go to the doctor to get the scar on his head looked at, he said. When he finally did, the doctor said his hair would never grow back in that spot, the governor explained.

Tonette still points to the bald spot as a reminder that he should always listen to his wife, he said
I fail to see how this is pertinent to anything, but even with such an innocuous subject such as Walker's baldspot, it would seem that he can't even tell the truth about that.

To believe that Walker's bald spot came from banging his head on a cabinet door, he had to have been charging it like a rhino (or is it RINO?).  I mean, look at the size of the thing:




If one were to believe Walker on this silliness, then one would have to believe that the most males are clumsy oafs, given how many of us, including myself, have bald spots.  Funny thing is I don't remember hitting my head.  I always thought it was just male pattern baldness.

UPDATE: After further research, we at Cog Dis did find a mark on his bald spot, but I don't think it had a thing to do with any cabinet door:

  1. As Mary Burke shook hands with the panel and left the stage after the debate and Walker hung around with his back to the camera to screw up the production credits, the closing shots and to harass the panelists as they were ready to leave, it was obvious this guy just doesn't have a clue.

    Full moon bald spot clearly on display, looked like he was Chatty Scooter schmoozing for better debate reviews from the panelists who looked rather disinterested in whatever it was he was delaying their departure with. Burke should be demanding extra camera time.

  3. The reason he has a bald spot is. The Koch bros. need some place to rest their ball sacks.

  5. Is this where the expression "bald-faced liar" came from?

  6. I think the bigger question should be what was up with the artfully flesh colored but still significant bandage on the Governor's right thumb? Do you suppose Tonette needed to install a thumb guard on her young lad after the last Marquette poll numbers were released?

    1. Uh, perhaps too much thumbing his nose at Wisconsin citizens who aren't rich?

    2. Little Scott Walker
      May be a fast talker
      But Marquette polls seldom lie;
      He sucked on his thumb,
      Gave the rich folks a plum
      And said, “What a good boy am I!”

  7. Anyone note how Walker, after shaking Mary's hand, blew right past her...he's no gentlemen or he's asserting his last power plays before he's stripped of his Governorship. I'm fearful of what legislation his Majority jack boots will bestow on WI before leaving office.

    1. Likely post show handshake was not even part of the show script, but Walker went to hand cash to the two, "journalists," on screen left for asking no hardball questions and for not requiring him to actually answer the questions.

  8. What, I'd like to know is what's up with snow bunny Mary Burke's wrinkles? Wow, she's only 55 and looks 75, guess that's what happens when you're ridden hard and put away wet!

    1. Ah, there's the famous right wing misogyny that we have come to expect.

  9. As much as I hate to admit I have anything in common with Walker, I have to say that I have a similar bald spot. It didn't come from banging my head on anything. It just came with middle age. It happens.

    I suppose Walker has to make up these stories to make him seem like a reg'ler guy, just another zhlub who doesn't listen to his wife. (BTW, wasn't it also reported somewhere that Tonette advised him not to pull Act 10?)

  10. The hairline and the thumb injury are definitely both Doyle's fault.

  11. Seriously, the bald spot is from banging his head? Then what accounts for the swoop of hairless scalp leading up to his side part? And the comb over covering the matching retreating hairline on the other side? Two more head bumps? To channel my grandma, that man lies like he breathes.
