    "Judge Rules For Walker Campaign In Case Against State Election Officials"
    From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal:
    Judge rules for Walker campaign in case against state election officials - JSOnline
    Without the Dead, Illegal Alien and Cartoon Character signatures, it looks like the recall campaign is dead in the water!

    Sorry Liberals! Instead of having Hissy Fits, it looks like you'll just have to work with a duly elected official like all the grown ups have to! :D

    If you look at the point of the recall, you would realize that the left had a bigger hurdle to jump than prompting the recall election.

    Like winning the recall, for example. Without an incident of public corruption, policies that fundementally disrupts society or suppression of valued rights(yep, I know. The "disregard of citizens right to collective bargain" is being usurped. But the left forgets that it is running up against our natural politics, the "right to survive" in terms of state finances. The left has to present another idea that balance the state budget in order to preserve collective bargaining. They have not.) The left cannot hope to win anyway.

    At best, they can only use up capital with the electorate to make a political statement. Not good politics, if you ask me.

    You know good and well that this was not about the budget, it was about beating back the union.

    Too bad they had to use the court system.

    Would have been nice if Walker opposers would have simply admitted to the fake signatures, deleted them, and moved on.
