Former Gov. Scott Walker might be regretting his decision to stay so politically active after his November defeat. 

Unlike other ex-governors, Walker is keeping a high profile, tweeting regularly, giving speeches and even filling in on conservative talk radio. 

But his comments during one of those talk-radio gigs resulted in his being unceremoniously dumped as a speaker at a recent Republican Party function after he hacked off the often-combustible U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner.

Reached at a Sussex town hall last week, Sensenbrenner said the chairwoman of the GOP's 5th District Congressional Caucus made the call to remove Walker from the list of speakers at its annual meeting on March 31. But Sensenbrenner said he had her back. 

"I supported her disinviting him," said Sensenbrenner, who was first elected to Congress in 1978.
