Scott Walker’s Attorney Says Justice David Prosser Is Vital To Anti-Worker Agenda
The success of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s anti-worker agenda is hinging on the outcome of the state Supreme Court election, according to an e-mail sent to Walker’s supporters by his chief counsel, Brian Hagedorn.

The race is currently too close to call, with challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg holding a 309-vote lead over Walker ally Justice David Prosser with five precincts left to report.

Prosser originally billed his reelection campaign as being about “protecting the conservative judicial majority and acting as a common sense complement to both the new administration and Legislature.” Recently, however, he has attempted to claim independence. But Hagedorn’s e-mail laid it plain to Walker’s supporters: elect Prosser, or the governor’s agenda is in peril. From the e-mail:

“If Justice Prosser loses:

* The Supreme Court will shift from a 4-3 conservative majority to a 4-3 liberal majority.

* Governor Walker’s agenda could be stopped in its tracks by this new activist majority.

* Union bosses and their allies will be emboldened and further push to recall the brave Senators who voted for Governor Walker’s budget repair bill.

* (Chief Justice) Shirley Abrahamson and her allies will continue to drag down the reputation of the Court, with an additional vote to further push through their radical agenda.”

2. And still 3/4 of a million dumbasses voted for him. Un-fucking-believable.
Do 1/2 the people in this country really prefer to be poor servant peasants? I just don't get it.

10. "How eager they are to be slaves" - Roman Emperor Tiberius
in response to the Senate telling him they would make anything he sent them law

I am reminded of this quote very often, unfortunately

5. I wish to god that more Democrats here understood this and cared enough to vote.
I bet there are thousands of people here in Wisconsin who support worker rights who are saying this morning, "Gee, I wish I had gone and voted for Kloppenburg yesterday".

Walker agenda.
