    Every recall will be a huge effort. There will need to be money (lots) for lawyers to defend against all the opposition's challenges and appeals. There is so much more to this than just collecting signatures. And no one should forget that even if a senator is recalled, there will be an election a few weeks later in which that senator can try to be reinstated. We will have to work incredibly hard for whoever runs for our side in the election (probably in the summer of 2011). The Republicans will throw millions into a campaign to discredit our candidate and boost their own.

      It's all feet on the ground in the District. Get enough extra sigs and there's no challenges.

      Desperate times demand futile gestures.
