Joe the plumber, Scott Walker

"When the roll is called in the senate, they don't know whether to answer 'present' or 'not guilty.'"

The fun part of the day is early with Joe the Plumber. I'm told there were 150 people last night at a reception for him. For a guy who got accidentally thrust into the spotlight, he speaks very well with a solid message. We'll get the AFP video later.

Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker is speaking now after a standing ovation. Walker is rejecting the talk we need to change the conservative message, the problem is the messengers.

Regarding the state budget, Walker is comparing Governor Jim Doyle to Tony Earl. "We can do better."
