There's a video circulating on YouTube of a prank call that The Beast's Ian Murphy reportedly made to beleaguered Wisc. Gov. Scott Walker. Murphy supposedly said he was David Koch, a well-known libertarian, in order to speak with Walker.

The story still seems weird to me, but if all is as advertised, Walker sounds calm and "comes across as determined and professional," to quote Townhall's Political Editor Guy Benson. Walker's responses don't sound like it's a normal phone conversation, and you can't hear Murphy's responses, although the transcript is posted on the Buffalo Beast site.  If the intention was to make Walker look bad, it's an epic fail.
