Walker belly flops in Sesame Street Healthy Eating PSA.

I have a confession; I've always wanted to host a kids show with lots of talking puppets to make fun of. My best friend Gordy Young did just that for Fox 47, and I'm still jealous.

But there's one thing that's a given when working with puppets, no one can upstage you with better acting. Maybe better lines, but hey, there faces are frozen with fake fur, stuffing and usually a hand that just moves the mouth.

Scott Walker found a way to do the impossible; get outperformed by two Sesame Street second string puppets. Not only does he hesitate uncomfortably in his first line, he even sounds condescending...to a puppet.
In two 40-second PSA spots, Walker in a Badger red hoodie yuks it up with Sesame Street characters Abby Cadabby and Rosita.
With his eyes glued on the teleprompter for his next short line...here's Walker:



The other PSA is much better, but still has an uncomfortable moment where Walker looks less human than the two puppets. Will Mary Burke get equal puppet time, after all, this is an election year?

Pitying the poor puppeteer who drew the short straw and had to put a hand up the backside of the middle character to animate it.

If you misspell "their," you should watch more sesame street.

I'm wondering if Gov. Walker will get half the guff that Mrs. Obama has for "telling our children what to eat!" The nerve of some people!

I'm also thinking that all the good Not-A-RINO's know that Sesame Street is socialist plot. Have they been leaving the state, or perhaps been reconsidering their political choices? Is Walker now so desperate to maintain his throne under the dome that he is reaching out to the America-hating, education-loving, reality-based demographic? Or, at least, that part of it that can't remember what he did last week... and the week before that... and the week before that...
