Recalling GOP Senators Not Enough to Set New Course for Wisconsin
http://www.inthesetimes.com/working/entry/7141/ousting_... /

Progressives must popularize an alternative to current systemand pressure Dems

The progressive response to Gov. Scott Walker's effort to transform Wisconsin government into an instrument of, by, and for the investor class gained important ground last week.

First, Walker's administration finally obeyed a clear-cut legal ruling that his public-sector union-busting bill is not yet in effect. And this week, folks in the La Crosse area gathered enough signatures on petitions to stage a recall election against Republican Sen. Dan Kapanke. Labor and progressives have targeted eight Republican State Senators for recall.

The recall petition drive was aided immensely by Bold Progressives, which gathered donations in increments as small as $3 to air hard-hitting, superbly-crafted TV ads about the "Republican war against the middle class." Other recall drives are also running very well, and contributions to Bold Progressives will reinforce these efforts in Wisconsin.

2. Yeah, it's just the start.
But an important start. And besides getting rid of Repukes and, hopefully, returning to a Dem majority, it also sends strong messages -- including to Dems.
