Very quick diary, but I want to make a strategic point:
We need to declare victory in Wisconsin now while the message is still being crafted.
Badgers: You won. You took the senate. You stopped Walker. You won.
Scott Walker just lost the senate and is no longer an unquestionable dictator. Scot Fitzgerald lost. He's now the senate minority leader. This is a HUGE victory for Democracy and for Wisconsin.
So I want all of you to go to your facebook, and say "Democrats Win Big in Wisconsin." I want you to go to twitter, to your friends, I want you to write letters to the editor, because this idea that "Walker Wins" which I keep reading about is absolute crap.
If you want to be friendly to the Republicans, the only truthful headline would be "Walker Survives - Loses Senate."
There's already a spin being put on this story that it's a big loss for democrats and that's simply not true.
This wasn't just a tactical victory or a moral victory, though it was both of those, it was an actual victory.
The totalitarian dictatorship of Fitzwalkerstan has been overthrown. You live in a Democracy again.
Shout it from the mountains, and stop this pro-republican spin!
