Wisconsin: My predictions for tomorrow. [View all]

In the 16 months since Scott Walker was sworn in as Governor of Wisconsin, there has been a sea change here, an awakening of the decent, honest People who simply refused to allow his raping of our State continue. They may have joined the fray because of Walker's attack on collective bargaining, or his attacks on education, healthcare, women's rights or perhaps the environment. Or maybe it was the corruption that caused them to see the light.

But see the light they have. They know what this fight is about. They know that the right wing is trying to use Wisconsin as yeast for their awful infection. They're trying to dismantle democracy, and it's plain as your face.

They have made it harder to work, harder to get healthcare, harder to educate your children, harder to care for your parents.

They have made it harder to vote.

They have, with supreme arrogance, flaunted their ugliness.


While the outcome of this historic event is uncertain, I will stick my neck out on the following:

---There will some kind of election screwup in Waukesha, Washington or Outagamie County, despite the best efforts of PeaceNikki and others.

---There will be incidents of voter intimidation and ugliness in Milwaukee, and elsewhere in the State.

---Democrats will win two or more of the four State Senate seats up for grabs, giving them control of that chamber (only one win is needed).

---Tom Barrett will beat Scott Walker with a nice margin. The "free press" will be shocked. Walker will cry foul and try to tie things up as long as he can. In the end, he will be out on his ass, awaiting indictment.


Thanks to each and every one of you who has helped in large or small ways. The good People of Wisconsin appreciate your support.
Together, we are making this happen.
