“[Walker] Is A Counterfeit Leader”

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on December 14, 2009

James Rowen channels his inner cognitive dissident. My favorite part:

Walker was never a philosophical or actual urbanist – -let alone a pragmatic, down-to-earth, hands-on problem-solver – – though the territory and people he represented are, in the main, urban, and in a particularly challenged environment, too.

He was and is a counterfeit leader, a political game-player, a place-holder at taxpayer expense looking to take as few risks as possible while timing his move up and calculating first and pre-eminently how every news release and utterance and semi-colon will fit into ideological templates and, someday – – sooner now rather than later – – into roughed-out ads.
