31. "Your people" means Wisconsinites in general. The idea of recalling a sitting guv didn't sit well

with too many of your voters, even if they thought he was generall something of an asshole. They didn't want to set that kind of precendent: overturning an election every time you get pissed at an asshole politician. Instead, work to vote him out at the next REGULAR election. That is what the voters said.

We all agree that Walker is TOTAL ASSHOLE. Hell, I donated to the cause myself because they were pulling the trigger so what else could we do? But everyone knew Walker would pull in those tons of cash, and everyone knew this would be very risky.

No crying over it. No blame games. Grown-ups LEARN from the situtation and move on. Re-Tune now and get to work for the fall.
