Scott Walker at the Iowa Freedom Summit.

If you’re looking for the Scott Walker speech, here you go*.  Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I skipped it at first myself. But reports came in that he was kicking it, and… yeah, Scott Walker did. A lot of emotion under control, there. Can’t say that I’m surprised about either: in retrospect, the Left may have miscalculated in allowing its pro-death-threat wing to drive anti-Walker sentiment in the Wisconsin recall and re-elections. You want to get a man focused and driven? Threaten to murder his wife.

The speech was not perfect, mind you. Scott Walker can tell a joke for just a bit too long. But he also can hit the right notes, especially when it comes to life experiences that he shares with the rest of America. It would be highly enjoyable to watch the Democratic candidate try to match that…

PS: This is not an endorsement of Scott Walker. No coronations: if he wants to be President, he’s gotta get in the scrum and earn it.
