    recall is now a Walker enabler.

    Wisconsinites had such great momentum going and then couldn't/wouldn't capitalize on it.

    Wisconsinites had the whole country involved up to the day the  recall vote results were reported.

    Now Wisconsinites will deal in more horrible ways than one  with the results of that great clusterfuck.

    good luck with

      No matter how often I talk about this, it just doesn't sink in.

      Walker ran against the recall - as though it was illegal - by claiming that recalls can only be done if someone is charged with a crime and pointing out that he wasn't.  Of course, our media did zero reporting on the hypocrisy of Walker cashing in on the previous recall of the Milwaukee County Executive because voters were angry about a pension deal and Walker being fulling supportive of those efforts.  Our Republican loving media, tens of millions in ads attacking Dems/unions/"overpaid" public employees, and a lackluster Barrett campaign all contributed to keeping Walker in office.

      Our media is still lazy, but people are now feeling the effects of Republican policies which is why the GOP worked so hard to rigorously gerrymander the state.  We have another opportunity in 2014 - in a state that sent Tammy Badwin to the US Senate in a resounding victory over a 4 term prior Republican Governor and former Cabinet Secretary.

      Don't ask WTF.  Now you know.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
