    but Walker and the legislature have used their election to grab power in a myriad of ways that will make it difficult to get them out.  Gerrymandering, cracking down on protests, breaking the unions, massive disinformation campaigns, and more.  Plus the Democrats are in a bit of disarray and don't have a good candidate to run against him.  
    i figure I'll be pretty old before we get our state back from these thugs, but I'm committed to minimizing the damage as much as possible.  In addition to working at the state level, we have to quash Walker's presidential ambitions.  He's such an incompetent manager that it shouldn't even be a glimmer of a thought,   but since when did that ever stop an ambitious Republican?

      that Wisconsin voted for an entirely republican state government AGAIN in 2012. The gerrymandering is an issue here, as are other factors you named, but let's face it, there's a right wing force alive and well in Wisconsin these days, and I'm not so sure that as Kos hopes, Walker will face a tough re-election.
