      I honestly think that if Scott "The Bully" Fitzgerald had the votes he would have slammed that bill through a second time.  He admitted to Greta Van Susteren a couple of weeks ago that he didn't think he had the votes.  With Hopper and Kapanke for sure facing recall elections, Alberta Darling and Luther Olsen have come out and said they will not vote for the cuts to Senior Care that Walker wants.  (Darling and Olsen are on the recall list.)  So that tells me that at least some of the Republican 8 who are subject to recall are nervous.  It's THEIR careers on the line--not Scotty Fitz's.  Easy for him to bully and bluster.  But his turn to get voted out will come.

      Objecting to our governor’s policies does not make a citizen of Wisconsin a criminal. Not yet, anyway. ~ nelangst
