5. Reading about it in The Nation, he expects a recount fight. Hope he's right she'll win recount!

6. Those who dance and celebrate last celebrate best.
I'd rather be celebrating when Kloppenburg is certified the winner.

7. Interesting, Tea Party favorite Sarah Palin, endorsed Prosser
Kloppenburg promised to serve as an independent jurist who would uphold the rule of law, rather than promote the governors agenda. That was more than enough for the unions and their allies, which embraced the Kloppenburg campaignalong with the hope of grabbing majority control of the court away from Walker-allied conservatives...

Her candidacy became a focus of the movement that had developed to oppose Walker's agenda and, as Election Day approached, the impossible run began to look like the real thing. Prosser still had all his advantages, but Kloppenburg had the masses. Outside groups poured money into the contest, with the majority of it going to Prosser, a Tea Party favorite endorsed by Sarah Palin. But Kloppenburg had plenty of support, especially at the grassroots, where the handmade signs went up all over the state.

As her campaign became an electoral extension of the protest movement, everyone in Wisconsinand a lot of folks nationallybegan to talk of the April 5 court contest as the first real referendum on Walkers policies.
