Just a quick diary to thank all the Badgers who have been so inspiring during this long struggle.

Thank you to puddytat and Noise of Rain and Giles the Goat Boy and wmspringer and PvtJarHead and lots and lots and lots of others.

You guys are David picking up 5 smooth stones.
You are Rocky dancing on top of the Philadelphia Library steps.
You are Horatio at the bridge.

You are Sam carrying Frodo up the slopes of Mount Doom.

This is what little people rising up against evil overlords looks like.

Win or lose, thank you. I will never forget today. I will never forget reading that turnout in Madison was 119% of registered voters. I will never forget knowing that Tom Barrett was outspent 8 to 1 and closed the gap anyway.

Thank you. Win or lose, you are magnificent.

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.
