  •  Much as I hate to spoil the hatemailer's... (0+ / 0-)

    victory lap dance, a few facts have to be stated.  First up, many of the voters who voted for Walker also voted for Obama.  And most of those weren't so much voting for Walker's union-busting but because they thought that the recall election was a waste of tax money and that Walker should serve the rest of his term.  Besides, a possible recount notwithstanding, the state senate will soon have a democratic majority anyway.

    Second, for all the hoo-hah about the demise of the Public Sector unions, seven months earlier the people of Ohio overwhelmingly performed a "people's veto" of a union-busting law similar to Walker's, with 61% of the voters (mostly from non-union households) voting against it.

    So I would not be so quick to jump on the "that's it, so much for the public sector" bandwagon just yet.

    I'd love to stay and chat, but you're a total bitch-Stewie Griffin
