CNN has this story about how Republicans are cursed by London citing Mitt Romney's 2012 statement about London's lack of preparedness in hosting that summer's Olympics, Chris Christie's recent comments on vaccines and now Scott Walker's refusal to answer a question about evolution.
You can criticize Walker for choosing not to answer the question on evolution. But why was such a question posed in the first place? Is creationism being taught in Wisconsin public schools? The only reason for such a question was so that the press could paint Walker as a some type of religious zealot. Walker would have damned whether or not he answered the question.

The U.K. can be a particularly challenging place for members of the GOP because the party's ideological views do not all fit neatly into the that country's political conversation.
I think it would be more accurate to say that the GOP's ideological views do not all fit neatly into CNN's political conversations.
