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.
The article makes no mention of President Obama interrupting “God Save The Queen” in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II herself during his visit to London in May 2011. Neither does Nico Hines of The Daily Beast who wrote a piece dumping all over Walker.
Surely interrupting a country’s national anthem is a faux pas.
Well, not according to CNN’s take on the story which was that the orchestra had interrupted Obama. So in CNN’s eyes, Obama talking takes precedence over the British national anthem. I would say that you can’t make this stuff up, but CNN does.
Let’s also remember that Obama saw fit to return the bust of Winston Churchill to the UK after he took office (and then the White House later lied about returning it) not to mention the unworkable DVDs he sent to then PM Gordon Brown after Brown gave Obama a pen holder made from the timbers of the HMS Gannet, an anti-slave ship. Needless to say, we know what CNN would do if Walker, Christie, Romney or any other Republican had done these things.
But since Obama is responsible for these incidents they are either not worthy of mention by CNN or they are someone else’s fault. Hell, Obama could burn the Union Jack and CNN would find a way to blame Republicans for starting the fire.
