    Actually, having 9 elections is the better political option.  It is much better to defend all three Democratic seats and at the same time pick up 3+ GOP seats.  That is the dream scenario.  

    Winning on defense and offense, so to speak, squelches the 'silent majority' BS for well and good.  It would head off hearing lies about "activists GAB judges" the rest of our lives.  

    Stop. Stand up. Make a sign. Walk around in public. Be polite and orderly and the rest takes care of itself. Want to shake up the Plutocrats? Demonstrate your attention to politics.

      But the elections cost money and resources, and future recalls cost money and resources.

      It might be better if democrats only had to defend one or two in the long run. And having petitions thrown out will also put a dent in republican confidence.

        What it costs, it costs.  The Democratic Party will have to win some decisive political battle or else the Walker-Ryan Express will steamroller on.  The higher the stakes the bigger the potential win, and we have little to lose in the strategic sense.

        Don't get me wrong.  I want the GAB to toss these recall.s  But if they don't, the upside is the poential for a bigger blowout win.

        Stop. Stand up. Make a sign. Walk around in public. Be polite and orderly and the rest takes care of itself. Want to shake up the Plutocrats? Demonstrate your attention to politics.
