OMG. Walker sings civil rights song

Un-effing-believable. Koch whore Gov. Scott Walker singing along with "Soon, Very Soon," a civil rights anthem during a Martin Luther King Day celebration. (He was booed and hissed.

By the way, if you turn down the sound, Walker looks a lot like Carl Spackler in Caddyshack singing "The Ballad of the Green Berets."

Uppity Wisconsin reminded us that Walker gave a speech last year in which he claimed he wasn't a racist:
No, this is not a lame attempt at an Onionesque article: In a little-noticed speech last year, Walker, who is often criticized for his not-so-thinly veiled racism, tried to play the "I have a black friend!" card at a MLK event.
However, since Walker doesn't have any black friends, he tried to play the "My mom has a black friend!" card. He even had photographic evidence!
Yup, he held up a photo of his mom's African-American friend.

Oh, and also by the way, today's the day more than 540,000 signatures will be delivered to the state to recall Walker. We're not sure how many more yet. Will let you know.
