    Looks like someone is pissed. Who will be blamed for this? Which Republican tea party member will have to carry this around? The Dems are not retreating, just reloading.


    The Wisconsin State Capitol had taken on an eerie quiet by late Friday. Gone were the throngs of protesters who had occupied its marble floors like it were a summer campground. The midnight honking of cars circling the white building had ceased. The chalk outlines around fake dead bodies etched with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's name remained in dismembered parts, not yet completely washed away by hoses.

    Don't confuse democrat union folks with the conservative taxpayers. We'll see next election which side wins. IMHO "Waiting for Superman" basically will end State employee unions. If the Federal workers can't unionize, then State workers shouldn't either. (they have Civil Service)

    I don't know what will happen with Walker, but across the nation, Democrats should benefit. I can think of nothing that will garner more union support than the threat of the loss of collective bargaining power. If Republicans would change their strategy from simply approving the weakening of unions to a policy that seeks to destroy collective bargaining, then that might be enough to get a lot more support from business.

    Dead Man Walker?

    Is this more of Obama's Famous New Civility?

    Nah; just more empty threats from union loons and goons; poor spoiled children can't lose gracefully.

    I don't think he will actually be a dead man but his eyes and face do look dead.

    He's like a zombie, fitting that he's such a tool.

    I rather hope that the left won't turn to more violence on this one. Perhaps it's my desire for peace and to see the good in all people, but if the left starts getting more violent over this, we are in alot of trouble. When the violence starts, no matter who starts it, there is no telling where it will lead.
