This person apparently managed to call into Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's office in the persona of David Koch the billionaire who funds many American right wing causes. Listen to the excitement in his voice when the caller says this is David Koch. Listen to the rest of it and tell me this. If this is real is this not pwnage?

Governor Walker has admitted to the call and released a statement

"The Governor takes many calls everyday. Throughout this call the Governor maintained his appreciation for and commitment to civil discourse. He continued to say that the budget repair bill is about the budget. The phone call shows that the Governor says the same thing in private as he does in public and the lengths that others will go to disrupt the civil debate Wisconsin is having."

So, if it's true Walker will discuss the situation with (fake) Koch but not the Democrats, unless they all come back to the Capitol, apparently a technical scheme to gain a quorum, he thought about sending provocateurs into the crowd and he thinks Mika is hot. Nice.

We'll see if it's real. But, really, there's not much new here except - if it's real - we get a fly on the wall view of skeezy corporate influence on our political discourse.
