    Has so much DKOS blogging been cheerleading that readers here don't know what happened?

      People don't narrow down how smart a region is by vote count unless they themselves live in it.

      But the funny thing is most of us were in the same boat eight years ago, trying to explain how our country ended up voting for the same guy again to the rest of the world.  And there weren't many people hoping things would get worse here for everybody as an example to other nations thinking of following our lead, or to punish the "wrong" voters.

      ...but I absolutely hate this mentality among some people on this website that think that all Wisconsinites deserve what Walker and his allies have done to Wisconsin. The only Wisconsinites that actually deserve what the Repubs are doing to Wisconsin are the ones who voted for Republican/conservative candidates in competitive elections in 2010, 2011, and 2012. Wisconsin is a swing state with a highly-polarized electorate, meaning that it is very difficult for a major-party candidate (either Republican or Democratic) to get below 45% of the vote in a statewide race.
