What's Luntz got to do with it?

Buried at the bottom of this article on the GOP's turnabout on sanctions against the Democrats was this interesting aside. Governor Walker released his calendar from January and February and it showed an unusual meeting with the GOP's chief spin doctor:
The calendar showed he met with national political consultant and pollster Frank Luntz on Feb. 23. That was at the height of the conflict at the Capitol over Walker's union bargaining measure and the morning after the governor took a call from a blogger posing as the conservative billionaire David Koch.

Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie confirmed the meeting took place but emphasized it was not held to discuss the fake Koch call.
I'm inclined to believe it wasn't necessarily about the prank call. I expect it was scheduled prior to that and was a consult on how to spin Walker's shameless power grab more positively in light of the rising anger among the voters.
