    I thought Pluto was no longer deemed a planet. Isn't Wisconsin part of Canada anyway? Those Canadians will invade our politics at the drop of a maple.

    How do you think they got the money to get the signatures together?

    Sorry, but trying to make this an issue is pointless because both parties target certain candidates and states when the stakes are high. The money flows to candidates who have a fighting chance to win or lose, either way being close. How much out of state money do you think will flow into Massatwoshitts for the Senate race?

    I never realized I was a "plutocrat."

    Go Walker, go!

    BTW, much of the money funding the recall drive came from big, out of state unions. Your hypocritical ire over out-of-state money has been duly noted.

    You are just a rank and file Republican voting against his own best interest.

    ROFL! Do you normally pay "volunteers?"
