    Not sure how the recall election is gonna turn out. WHen I left the house, I saw Ed Shultz hiding an outburst when the initial numbers came out showing strong GOP leads. I'm sure a lot has change in the last hour. But two thoughts....

    1- I was a bit creeped out when I saw the teenage boys in the crowd being forced to hold those Communist symbol signs, the red ones with the big blue fist and a white star. They're being told this is to support teachers, I'm sure. But a bit of reasearch shows what that fist to the sky is rooted in. Creepy.

    2- Most hilarious is this: Lets say Dem's win it. And overturn the anti-union bill. Then, the governor would in theory have to resort to the action that he didn't do before the bill passed, which is laying off a bunch of teachers to balance the budget.


    So, if the communists get their way and win the recalls, they'll win a victory....that will end up getting a bunch of them fired. How freakin' ironic, right?

    I thought they were already laying off public workers up there to balance the budget?

    I don't understand how showing support for teachers is a radical communist action.

    Via Politico reporter Dave Catanese,

    Dem source: Dems will get close but not close enough in #SD14 for @FredClarkWI. GOP source says Rs will hold all but Kapanke. #WIRecall

    good call by Dave Catanes

    Whackos? I think it's great to see patriotic Americans exercising their rights. I hope they are rewarded.

    With out the Steps they took, that the Unions fought, The Lay off would have been much larger.

    Do you show support for your own state budget--or do you keep asking taxpayers to pay MORE for cadillac benefits to government workers--that the private sector pays for themselves?

    That's the question.

    And you're probably Thankful you don't live in Wisconsin either--and have to flip a tab for the government workers union and their demands on the taxpayers of that state.
