    we don't have to stage recall elections in every state!  As for the recall of Walker, I'm not in.  Count me out.  We need to save our powder for 2012.  He'll come up for re-election, get him then.  The results, while heartening in respects, do not represent an unmitigated victory for our side.  And thems the facts!

      this was an extraordinary situation and we don't have the horses to mount recalls willy nilly.  But I think forcing him to defend himself twice is a good idea.  Expensive for his side (ours, too, of course), and the more he's pressured, the higher the probability he will do something just as stupid as taking the "Koch" call.  He could be his own worst enemy.

      create powder.  Imagine if the Koch's put up the huge fight that they'll have to -- and lose.  That would send a resounding message nationwide.

      In my avatar, the blue bars show how many want Reps who COMPROMISE; the aqua bars show who wants Reps who STAND FAST no matter what. (Left=Overall; Center=Democrats; Right=Republicans.) And there's the problem!
