WisToon: Six Degrees of Scott Walker

The other day, Mark E. Andersen posted a blog entry on Daily Kos titled "Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Claims to Have a Master's Degree." Some of my liberal friends were quickly offended by what appears at first glance to be yet another example of college drop-out Walker fabricating fictitious facts -- it's kind of like politicians who pretend to be war veterans, isn't it?

I obviously have no sympathy for Darth Snotwalker, but if you read what he actually said -- copied right there in Andersen's post -- you can easily tell that his ersatz master's degree was not so much a lie as it was as a metaphor:
"I've got a master's degree in taking on the big government special interests, and I think that is worth more than anything else that anybody can point to."
 Still and all, I think there's plenty of room left to lampoon Master Walker for this claim.
