Recall Fever Spreads and Hits Wisconsin
MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin is struggling to rebuild its once pristine political reputation as recall fever spreads from California.

The call for recalls in Wisconsin began brewing last year as word broke of a plan by Milwaukee County officials to pay top administrators six-figure, lump-sum retirement benefits. The county executive resigned and seven county board members were recalled from office.

Now with the state locked in a bitter battle over property taxes and the airwaves abuzz over the drive to recall California's governor, Wisconsin Republicans and their allies are threatening to throttle Democratic lawmakers - including Gov. Jim Doyle, who took office just nine months ago.

"Certainly the prominence of the California recall means this is going to be one of the things people think of first... when they're unhappy with something," said University of Wisconsin-Madison political science professor Ken Mayer.

1. Busy squirrels
With all the rich right wing nuts ripening in the cool autumn air.

Recall Dole? Isn't going to happen. In Wisconsin gunmakers got the Dove hunt by duping the hunters: "they are taking our heritage if we can't blast Doves."

They are pushing for the conceal and kill gun law and now the Bradleys and all the other Con nuts are waiting for the bushy tailed rodents to carry them away. They will not get their way this time the scum.

2. It was just a matter of time.
Get the AM radio hate machine going, get a lying back-stabbing front orginization going called People for a (Conservative) Responsable Government going.

Try to out-rage un-informed citiszens, It's the recipe for recall.
