Recalled job cutter Scott Walker running against a Democratic hero
2009 Wisconsin State Fair attack
Barrett was the subject of national news headlines when he was attacked outside the Wisconsin State Fair on August 15, 2009, by a man wielding a pipe. Barrett and his family were leaving the fair when they responded to a woman's cries for help. They encountered a man and a woman in a heated confrontation and, while the mayor called 9-1-1, the man, 20-year-old Anthony J. Peters, attacked him with a pipe. Barrett was hospitalized after the incident and again later for reconstructive surgery for his hand.<35>. Governor Jim Doyle visited Barrett in the hospital the next morning and said he "found him to be in good spirits and looking good considering what happened... The mayor's heroic actions clearly saved a woman and others from harm", Doyle said in a statement. Peters was arrested the next day.<35> Both President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden telephoned Barrett in the hospital to inquire as to his condition, and Obama told Barrett that he went above the call of duty and said he was proud of Barrett's actions. Barrett's injuries included broken teeth, a permanently-damaged hand, and blows to the head where he was struck with the iron.<36>

Seriously, Wisconsin, if you re-elect Walker, don't speak to me.
