Sykes Defends


As hit jobs go, this is pretty run-of-the-mill, except for its length and the fact that it is the cover story of the once-prestigious New Republic:  The Unelectable Whiteness of Scott Walker: A journey through the poisonous, racially divided world that produced a Republican star.

The unsubtlety of the headline pretty much gives you the feel for this over-the-top and meandering trip through the fever swamps of anti-Walkerism.  Suffice it to say that writer Alec MacGillis establishes that he has frequented every anti-Walker website and twitter feed… and has fed deeply. His article is a heavy stew of urban legend, reheated unionista talking points, cherry-picked anecdotes and the usual journalistic hackery.
