Salon’s Luke Brinker questions GQ quotes from Walker on how he can be a kinder, gentler, right-wing Republican, while still dishing out the hurt for most of us and cash for a few. “It takes a confirmed cynic to make the case that what a politician believes matters less than the fact that he or she believes something,” Brinker writes, later adding: “And the Walker view that candidates are as much products to be sold as agents of particular agendas reflects the same outlook that has debased our electoral process.”
