    So basically in wisconsin politicans have to be in campaign mode all of the time. Recall is supposed to be the option of last resort, for getting rid of a politican who does something bordering on criminal. Instead Wisconsin is being turned into a reserve of poltical bile, where the partisan divide is kept in the news cycle.

    Both sides need to quit it, and stick to defeating people they dont agree with in actual elections.

    Recalls aren't easy. It's up to the people of Wisconsin to decide if one is warranted.

    And recall elections are actual elections. :thup:

    I saw a recall Walker bumper sticker on a run down, rusty, POS little pick up yesterday in a parking lot. I kicked in his window and slit his tires. Felt just like I was part of the OWS crowd.

    Then make the actual elections every two years, and be done with it. Recalls are a distraction. The aaahnold one in california was a circus, the ones that happened in Wisconsin this year resulted in minimal change. They are a waste of taxpayer money unless the goal is to remove a corrupt politician. Using it for pure political gain is a bastardization of the intent of the ability to recall.

    I'm sure the voters of Wisconsin will give your unflattering opinion of them serious consideration when they head to the polls. :lol:

    Voters in Ohio are regretting their vote for Kasich and want Stricklen back. Recent polling showed that response winning by 18 pts.

    I really don't know who Kasich and Walker had to blow to even get in there.. Hmm, maybe their brothers from another mother.
