Can we please, please, please not try to be the smartest ones in the room just this one time and play the game that Republicans always play.  Let's declare victory now and talk about pushing Prosser off the stage.  This is the message.

Kloppenburg won an election she should never have won.  What a humiliation for the Tea Party and their media toads.

This is a total Wisonsin smackdown of Scott Walker

Prosser should really understand it is time to leave the stage.

Prosser sticking around is just hurting Wisconsin.

There is serious businesss to conduct and Prosser is just gumming up the works by trying to challenge this.

A recount is really pro-forma - the people of Wisconsin have obviously spoken.

Of course this means that a majority of those Republican senators are in deep trouble now.

Nobody ever would have predicted this type of win.  It is humiliating for Walker.

This really puts egg on Walker's face is not over his whole body (ewwwwwww).

Walker shoud just declare Kloppenburg the winner and get on with it.

Add your own.  But whatever you do don't say, "Nothing's settled.  Now we have to have a recount.  Boy aren't I the sensible democrat."  To hell with that.  This is an opportunity.  

Messaging, messaging, messaging!!!

Oh, and if Kloppenburg falls behind?  See Norm Coleman circa 2008.  Guy hasn't suffered one bit for his total aboutface when he started losing.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
