    Not only is it 80/20 GOP, it's 80/20 ACTIVIST GOP.  It's like Rush Limbaugh's homeland.  Until last year, I never thought such an awful place could have existed North of the Mason Dixon line.  I'm sorry for you.  I don't know if I could ever live in such a place.

    Good luck to you and to us.  We're going to need every ounce of it.

      That is, not Until Citizen's United. Hence, my state's become the love child of David Koch, Sheldon Adelson, and all of the other power hitters that Walker has funding  him.  The money being spent by the GOP has certainly tipped the scales towards Walker, but not as much as one would think. To be outspent 26-1 yet still only trail by single digits is quite remarkable for Barrett,  but the money gap and enthisiasm gaps needs to be to be trimmed. Unfortunately, Walker has ample channels and means to disseminate his message, while Barrett has nothing! There are no liberal or even moderate radio stations! Barrett needs help from outside sources, to counter Walkers's out-of-state Power Hitters. Joe Biden, Debbie Wasseerman Schulz, Bill Gates, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Morello, Foo Fighters, or even George Clooney would be some possibilities who might reignite the currently downtrodden "good guys".
