Prosser: 'Nuclear Blast' and 'Still Standing'

When Justice David Prosser addressed his supporters shortly after 1:30 AM this morning, he didn't mince words in commenting
on the methods utilized by JoAnne Kloppenburg and her proponents during the campaign.

"We're optimistic. We expect later today to bring good results," Prosser told a handful of supporters who had stayed until the wee
morning hours at the Seven Seas restaurant in Delafield.

"This is truly an historic election," Prosser said. "There is little doubt there's going to be a recount in this race, no matter who comes
out on top -- tomorrow or today or whenever. But I'm very pleased we have sustained the most difficult assault on a person's
character in the whole history of the Wisconsin judicial system. We're still in this race, I've weathered the nuclear blast and I'm still
standing.

"There is no question about my gratitude to the people of Wisconsin" Prosser said, to applause and shouts of "Ten more years."

1. Yet with the polling on support for collective bargaining I expected better.
Considering Walker is doing some pretty radical stuff, this election isn't very comforting.

3. "this election isn't very comforting."
R you kidding me? This election and upcoming recount and recalls are a shoot
across the bow of the right wing machine. Prosser had just beaten Kloppenburg
by 30 points in February of 20011, outspent her by better than 2 to 1, and he had
held public office for 30 years but Joann was an unknown.
