Doesn't that make you feel much better?

If I'm not mistaken, the claim is that unregistered voters are registering at the polls. The Left is pushing for the acceptance of honest voters coming out for the first time - but also the Left doesn't want them vetted.

We all knew the Left would scam the votes - that is their M.O., but at this point, it looks as if the Governor is winning in spite of the fraud.

Worse than that, he said Thirty-four million to four million dollars."

The question is, where did he get his data? Someone fed him that talking-point, and didn't care whether repeating such disinformation would make such people look stupid.

Unhappy with the results of last night's peaceful, orderly exercise of democracy, the anarchists associated with the occupy movement took to the streets of Milwaukee tonight for an impromptu march. Exclusive video from Breitbart News' Jeremy Segal shows the march in its inception.

Wisconsin would be in the top 10% of liberal states and maybe higher as far as union ethic goes. This is a devastating setback for the public unions.

I heard tonight even Governor Brown in California is seriously considering cutbacks in public union benefits.

When all the dust has settled, only Illinois will escape this due to the gangster city of Chicago being the engine that runs that state. The rest of us will bail them out someday when they default.

Means swat for the Walker recall but it could matter huge in the Lehman/Wanggaard race if there is a similar pattern in Racine. Less than an 800 vote difference. Remember that the DOJ was on site to make certain that this election was 'fair'. S5 Imagine if they actually have to investigate an indict some party hacks ... the horror!! ... the horror!! S1

RE: 119% Voter Turnout in Madison, WI
Ron Radosh, over at Pajamas Media, talks about how the Jackass Left is contorting itself, all over its need to explain why it lost so badly in Wisconsin.

Quote:.........These representatives of the people do not seem to comprehend how their argument shows little confidence in the ability of the average Joe — whom they claim to represent — to understand their own needs, and make wise decisions on that basis. Dreier and Brown are in effect saying that the people are so dumb that TV commercials paid for by the Koch brothers are enough to produce an outcome contrary to their own interests. (Dreier does not know, evidently, that the Koch brothers favor decriminalization of marijuana and same sex marriage, causes he probably supports himself. Maybe they are responsible for Obama’s sudden turn on that last issue.)

........So Dreier ends repeating himself, over and over. If you didn’t get his point, he tells you again: “In other words, business and billionaires bought this election for Walker.” He didn’t make that argument in 2008, when Obama outspent John McCain by millions.

........That divide, as Seth Lipsky points out in The New York Sun, is “for the same reason that communism didn’t work… a zero-sum game that pits labor against everyone else. It’s a fight that labor, like the communists, can only lose.” Walker’s fight was not against unions per se, as Lipsky notes, but only against that sector of the labor movement — public sector unions — that is reactionary to the core. Labor can be, as it has in the past, a bastion of a free society, working with management to increase productivity and growth that benefits the working-stiff.

Lipsky goes on to note that a free labor movement can be a pillar of strength in a democratic society, and he reminds us that Sarah Palin — yes the detested VP candidate in 2008 — reminded the Republican convention that her husband was “a proud member of the United Steel Workers” and that she herself was a union member when she was a telephone company dispatcher.

The fight, then, is not against organized labor but rather the outworn and elite labor groups who benefit from the hard work of everyone else — including their brethren in the private sector. And even public workers seem to get this, since once Walker’s reforms went into effect, so many of them chose with their pocketbooks to drop union membership.

So the Left is wrong. John Nichols at The Nation [6] is wrong when he writes that “Walker’s economic policies didn’t work. But his advertisements did.” Ben Adler [7] is wrong when he writes that the Walker victory,

Quote:merely shows that the unlimited spending unleashed by the Republican appointees on the Supreme Court has given Republicans a tremendous spending advantage and that does make a difference.

So that is their simple answer: The Republicans spent more. They can ignore everything else that stands in the way of their inability to see why they were defeated. Every left-wing site makes that point alone, and repeats it endlessly. They have no other explanation.

No wonder. As the Left sees things, they are correct and represent the real people. When those they claim to speak for vote against them, the only reaction they have is bewilderment. And so they come up with one answer their followers can understand — the rich bought the outcome.

If they are right, the American people are stupid. Perhaps the electorate knows something the Left does not. But don’t expect them to grasp that simple truth.

Lehman's win (if it isn't overturned after further scrutiny) has to belong in the Dictionary under Pyrrhic Victories. The Senate is adjourned and won't reconvene until after the next election (presuming that the nut 'rats won't stage yet another preemptive recall over the summer). If I were a Wisconsin voter of any stripe I'd be p*ssed. Elections aren't cheap and they seem to have them in that state every couple of months or so.

Pretty much what Ed Morrissey is saying:

Quote:That’s correct — the Wisconsin Senate will be out of session until 2013. In November, 16 of the 33 seats will be up for grabs, and thanks to the redistricting that will be in place for the first time in that election, Republicans are supposed to pick up at least two seats. The unions spent millions of dollars and over a year’s worth of effort to get a temporary one-seat majority in a chamber that will never meet in session. And that’s assuming that their lone win from last night holds up in a recount. Congratulations, Big Labor!

RE: 119% Voter Turnout in Madison, WI
The Democrat rant is that outsider Conservative billionaires bought the election - when in fact, it was outside Union activists that drove the whole thing.

If I was an outstate union member, I would be royally upset that my local dues went for such a stupid cause. In the end, taking the money out of my local for lessening the power of unions across the nation. Brilliant!

Somehow, I prefer them whining about their losses, than boasting about their victories.

The (In)Justice Department is suing the state over the new election maps. It's cost the State of Wisconsin a $million$ so far. Purportedly it will be appealed to the Supreme Court which will cost the state even more ... hopefully, by the time it gets argued the Solicitor General will be somebody that can find their arse with both hands (preferably less) who will choose to drop the matter. Even with all the excess elections and litigation it still has to be less expensive than having 'rats in charge and following the path of California and Illinois. Still, it's a helluva lot of money down a 'rat hole.
