Journal Sentinel WI TOTALLY twists the facts about Walker Emails (Not as supportive as they say)
I was reading the JS Online article about the Walker Emails (headline: Walker right on emails, analysis finds) http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/news/118362134.html

But, if you hit the analysis button in the article it takes you to this:
http://www.wisconsinwatch.org/2011/03/21/analysis-email... /

Where you learn these facts about the emails:
Analysis: Emails favored Walker 2-1
One-third of positive emails from out of state
many people wrote multiple messages -one person wrote 250+ emails
the overwhelming majority of those who wrote in opposition to his bill were from Wisconsin --Eighty-nine percent of the emails against Walker came from Wisconsinites.-
Out-of-state emailers supported Walker, 85 percent to 15 percent, or a margin of nearly 6 to 1.

This is why we have to write our emails people! The right side is giving them the numbers they need to support their positions...even if they are coming from all over the country.

1. How do Republicans "win," again?
Oh yeah -- by LYING, CHEATING, and STEALING.

3. I hope Governor Walker is recalled, and soon. Only that will send a clear message to Republicans.
