the 2015 hot ham mystery
Brian Beutler speculated in The New Republic yesterday that Scott Walker might be "the most boring presidential candidate ever." As evidence, Beutler cited a few tweets and drew these conclusions:
Walker abbrevi8es like a tween. His life turns on snow, dairy, hot ham, Kohl's, haircuts, Packers, Badgers, and watching American Idol while eating chili. His critics err when they mock him for lacking a college diploma, but they could be forgiven for observing that his intellectual incuriousness is symptomatic of lacking ambition outside politics.

But wait, wait, wait — what was that part about hot ham? Because as BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski and ThinkProgress' Emily Atkin have found, Walker's hot ham obsession is actually... a little next level:
The people demand answers, Scott.
Scott, are you listening?
Looks like this one may remain a mystery — just as the question of what exactly hot ham is remains unclear.
