    to ask the question...

    Didn't Wisconsin have somewhere in the vicinity of 1.2 million signatures on those recall petitions?

    The vote total for Barrett that I've seen so far is just under 800,000.

    So where are the other 400,000 voters who could have thrown Scott Walker out of office?

    Confused by robo-calls telling them they already voted in the petition and didn't need to vote again today?

    Fell victim to the non-stop seven times bigger ad buy bucket of the pro-Walker contingent?

    Both of them and more?

    Still, that's a whole lot of folks failing to vote when it really, really counted.

    I haz a sad.

    :(
