“Since we don’t control the air, our good air has decided to float to China’s bad air. So when China gets our good air, its bad air has to move. So it moves to our good space. air. Then — now we have to clean up this backup.”
Isn’t that how things work? Not all “bad air” moves en masse. And certainly not everything moves in a direct line from China to the United States where we, uh, clean it up.
For Walker, who is running against Democratic Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock, this nonsensical response on climate change is consistent with a number of self-created controversies he has faced recently.
All of these incidents make it clear what a massive gamble Republicans made when they lined up behind Walker’s candidacy.
This bet looks worse with each passing day. Walker is struggling to adjust to the pace and scrutiny that comes with running for Senate in one of the nation’s top races this fall.
Point: Walker has always been a major risk for Republicans to occupy a seat considered essential to their hopes of regaining a majority in the Senate. But I’m not even sure the most cynical Republicans thought he would be that bad on the campaign trail.
