From the sublime to the ridiculous

A little more than one year ago, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker gave a riveting speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit. Given that this occurred a mere two months after winning his third statewide election (including the July 2012 recall) in four years, said speech fueled speculation of a presidential run.

Fast forward to last night, which was the eve of the 2016 Iowa caucuses. This is what was on Walker's Twitter feed:

A year ago, there was an air of not "if" but "how big a margin" Walker wins in Iowa. But as we were less than 24 hours from caucus night, someone who was once considered the most viable GOP presidential candidate had been out of the 2016 race for four months and was tweeting about some vapid TV show.

I'm still not over it.
