    With recall elections moving forward against four Republican state senators, Governor Scott Walker and Lieutenant Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch the cracks in the Republican front are starting to show.

    State Senator Pam Galloway, a recall target due to her consistent and outspoken support of Gov. Walker announced Friday her immediate resignation from the legislature and her decision not to contest the recall election citing family issues that required her immediate and undivided attention. The move made an immediate impact as Galloway’s resignation takes control of the Wisconsin Senate away from Republicans and splits it evenly between the parties, but it has long-term implications as well.

    For starters, Galloway was a Tea Party favorite and was going to be tough to beat in the recall election. She’s had the ability to raise a lot of money. Galloway was facing Democrat Donna Seidel, a popular former county official from the Wausau-area and the assistant minority leader in the state Assembly. Seidel is now the front-runner in a race that should she win would tip the Senate to full control by Democrats.

    Chris:

    A well researched, persistent liberal American who does not shy away from expressing his opinion here. This in spite of a near constant barrage of lame insults and weak rebuttals from a slew of jealous nutters.

    Stephanie:

    A startlingly unintelligent and jealous nutter who spreads her ugly unhappiness around in every post.

    Who would you prefer on your side?

    Well, the Wisconsin GOP smallness of mind and meaness of spirit is leading to their defeat. So all the people like Staph have left is insults.
