    So many people in WI vote against their interests out of fear or ignorance of what goes on in Madison or Milwaukee. They've been subject to 30+ years of "conservative" propaganda that works to gin up their anger over imaginary wrongs perpetrated using their tax money, and, combined with their own fears about the changing world and the increasing pinch all of us (except the rich of course) are feeling, they're running scared. The repug message resonates with them, and for the most part, it's all they get. The farther away from the city you go, the harder you have to look for alternate sources of information because alternative radio and tv is rare. Maybe the best hope is to go out there and hang out in the bars and diners and meet people and talk and show them that you're human too, and meanwhile hope they catch on to the scam. All is not lost in WI btw - wanker offended people statewide and planted the seeds of enlightenment throughout the state with his heavy handed tactics. It may speed up the dot connecting process.

    when I see a republican on tv, I always think of Monty Python: "Shut your festering gob you tit! Your type makes me puke!"
