    Same excuse for losing the legislature to begin with - Too many low-information voters.

    Motor City Liberal: Once Again, Fox Masquerades GOP Activist As Concerned Parent To Attack Unions

    PORTAGE — The chairwoman of the Republican Party of Columbia County resigned Friday after a drunken crash with her three children in her car.

    The recall elections will answer “whether Republicans have overreached or not,” says Burden. They will also serve as barometer for the public appetite for their inaugural tea party legislators, who have been at the vocal forefront of the legislative warfare.

    Tuesday will be an interesting night.
    Can I have some of what you're drinking?

    Did Amber Hahn appear on Fox Monday, Aug 8, 2011?

    Is there something wrong with a concerned parent being a drunk too?



    Guess you missed this little part in your story:

    "Tuesday’s election may unseat six Republicans.
    Next week, two Democrats face the same fight.
    The recalls may shift the balance of power in the state Senate from the current 19-14 Republican majority.

    Because Republicans still control the Assembly and governor’s mansion, a Democratic victory will not roll back any of the new legislation. The unprecedented summer election will be “almost entirely symbolic,” says Barry Burden, a political scientist at the University of Wisconsin at Madison."

    Is the State where Democrats fled and hid in Illinois rather than stay in their state and vote, like they were elected to do?

    I think it was!


    This is not an D vs R issue.
    This is an issue about states going broke and what some responsible elected officials are doing about it.
    Partisan style!

    Don't know the turnout numbers. We do know that it is a high union state and the Unions are really pissed and they are spending like mad.

    Of course, the Tea Party people are also very upset, so this is going to be a turnout battle. Elections like this usually have low turnout. these probably won't

    Should be an interesting referendum on the current political climate. After the past few days, we may get a preview of the feelings of the voters
