    Are you calling the Wisconsin recall election results a victory?  Well, King Pyrrhus of pyrrhic victory fame had lots of similar victories.

    Lemme see here.  We sent in over 30 million bucks, untold legions of volunteers, and an ultimate emotional effort and we snagged a district that is already 3-2 Democratic and toppled a senator cheating on his wife with the jilted lady daily blabbing in the news media against her wandering hubby.  What does the ad say for the business supply store.  Oh, yeah:  "That was easy."

    I am wondering if we shouldn't have invested those millions in voter registration, card check organizing, or maybe passing out free food and aid to the unemployed.
