    thoughts on this.  But here is my worry.  I love Wisconsin, but I don't think Wisconsinites have figured out that they are not dealing with the same republican party of old.  I am simply not sure about this

    There are plenty of Wisconsin Republicans who will be turned off by such a campaign.

    If nothing else, Democrats in Wisconsin have succeeded by playing hardball, against Republicans who are also playing hardball.

    As for messaging, all the republicans need to do is have one of their corporate partners put up ads that say

    A vote for (insert stooge name) in the democratic primary is a vote for republican candidate (insert name of republican being recalled).  It is time to for Wisconsin Republicans to stand up Democratic dirty tricks and vote rigging.  Its time for Republicans to stand up for our state senators, our state and the USA from the over-reach of Union loving, socialists seeking to overturn the will of the Wisconsin voters.

    Yeah, its all bullshit.  But it might work.
