  •  Badgers, you've shown great fortitude and (5+ / 0-)

    inventiveness over this past year, so please don't take my suggestion here as criticism, but if you really want to tape proceedings gavel to gavel, there are a dozen ways to hide your cell phone cameras and catch all the action.

    Think sleeve sewn into the back facing side of a translucent neck scarf. Think large pore straw handbag. Think loud print shirt with a tiny hole cut into the black portion of the pattern. Put those furry badger thinking caps on.

    Once a couple of vids of sessions the Repubs don't want aired see the light of day, they'll have to resort to even more draconian measures to hide their disgusting doings, and the good people of Wisconsin who haven't yet come on board will migrate toward the light.

      is actually already available via Wisconsin Eye.

      What in the world are they so afraid of, given that they're ALREADY being recorded!?

      •  Wisconsin Eye is very good... (10+ / 0-)

        ...for keeping up with the legislation and watching whoever has the floor, but the stuff that happens out of sight of the camera is fascinating. Watching them sleep, play Scrabble on their laptops, gather in packs and giggle when an African-American representative is speaking.

          It's just that... what's going on that WisEye records ought to be infuriating enough!  But instead we have to play personal-embarrassment games to get any big-publicity notice (cf Joel Kleefisch as KO's worst-person-in-the-world.)

          Don't mind me, I'm having a down-day here.  Read a terribly depressing comment to the effect of... even if we do kick Walker out & take back the legislature, and begin the long process of chipping away to reverse some small part of the legislative damage that's been done, the full devastating effects of the Fitzwalkerstan assault will truly begin to be felt...  on the new administration's watch.  And won't the propaganda machine and its echo chamber have a field day with that!!

          It's chilling to contemplate.

      They keep thinking that if they just make more rules, we'll go away, but it just motivates us to do more.
