Again - Wisconsin fights back against the overlords.
Whether a recount reverses Kloppenburg's win it still demonstrates that the efforts of the citizens is not something that can be ignored.

The rallies at the state capitol protesting Walker's tyrannical rule showed that Walker, Fitzgerald, and gang didn't have control of all branches of the government. They forgot about the wrath of the voters. They forgot about the consequences of unwise decisions. They forgot about the resources available to remove them from office. They forgot to pay off the media to keep the protests off the air and paper.

Wisconsin should be able to take back the Senate and prevent Walker's course of action. With any luck Walker will screw up some more and keep his incompetence in the minds of the voters.

The other states need to learn the lessons that Wisconsin offers. I envision that 2012 will provide better utilization of recent tools. New features have been developed that were not available in 2008 which I look forward to using.

1. He hasn't been doing anything too outrageous in the
last few days. He and his minions are probably dreaming up shit right now.

I am glad this election turned out well for our side. It will slow him down for awhile. I have no illusions that he will come up with new, evil ways to get what he wants. People like him never quit trying to get their way.

2. There are two scenarios
1) Walker and Fitzgeralds are cowering in a small dark closet hoping everyone forgets about them but still pissing in their pants because of the upcoming recall elections.

2) Walker and Fitzgeralds fail to understand the implications of their actions and go back to their 3rd grade classroom days and make up their own definition of the law and stick their bare asses out the bus windows.

4. 3. They know their days are numbered and now its no holds barred.
They'll cram in everything they can so that it will take years to unravel and repair the damage.
