"Why Do These Bitches Hate Us?"

Thomas Lindaman writes:

If you're like me, you've been sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for who pro-abortion

"Pro-abortion"?  Lindaman, when in the world has Fluke ever stated that abortion is the desired outcome?  That would be "pro-abortion."  Fluke is pro-choice.

There are tons of men and women who are pro-choice that happily have their own children.  If they are "pro-abortion" then how is that possible?

Do you have any journalistic integrity at all?

and free (at least to her) birth control advocate Sandra Fluke

"Free"?  Again, Lindaman is a liar.  Fluke is paying for her health insurance.  That is what should be covering birth control.  The health insurance that Fluke is paying for.

Since when is paying for something, free, you economic dunderhead?

was going to endorse for President this year. My friends, the wait is over.

Fluke's endorsing President Obama.

Whew! Now that we have that taken care of, let's focus on who former American Idol singer Adam Lambert is going to vote for this year!

That was three years ago.  Why not use the name of Phillip Phillips, who won this season?  Is it because you're always years behind when it comes to pop culture references in your posts?

Or... is it because Adam Lambert is gay?

Really? Was there any doubt Fluke was going to support Obama given how Fluke has connections to the Obama White House?  Isn't that like the neighborhood thief endorsing the police chief who turns the other way when there's a rash of thefts in the robber's neighborhood?

Wow, way to go "investigative journalist". How did you discover this extremely public information?

Dunn's firm in DC (Squier, Knapp, and Dunn), where she was a senior partner since 1993, merged with the Kinickerbocker firm in NYC a couple of years ago.

So basically, Anita Dunn left the White House over two years ago. These conspirators must be awfully patient to let that much time go by before executing their plan.

Ms. Fluke's choice of this Public Relations firm means absolutely nothing more than the fact that it is an effective firm for Progressives, with offices in both DC and in New York City.

Did you Republicans really think that Ms. Fluke would be entrusting herself to a Right Wing Public Relations firm?  Surrrreee...

Dunn's PR firm started representing Fluke in early March 2012. Prior to that, she was fielding media requests herself, which effectively destroys the conspiracy theories that the White House has been "orchestrating" the Fluke saga through Dunn's firm since the beginning.

You right wingers have only yourselves to blame for Fluke becoming well-known, thanks to people like Rush Limbaugh calling her a slut that wants birth control (for sex) for days on end.

But let me take it a step further. Fluke's endorsement of Obama is indicative of how the Left turns a blind eye to women's issues. Sure, Democrats love to talk about the "Republican war on women," but what
exactly has Obama done for women since becoming President? I mean, aside from paying his female staffers less?

Again, liar: Obama makes the most money, since he's the president.  And he's a male, and that skews the median.  Show us a specific case where a female staffer with equal level and experience gets paid less than a male staffer.  Watch the deafening silence, folks.

The Obama administration has more female members in the Cabinet than any president in history.

The truth is he's done...nothing substantial. One of his first acts as President was to sign the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, which Leftists love to crow about when talking about the Left's commitment to women's rights. Yet, by his own actions, Obama is a fair-weather friend to women.

Except for... signing the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009.  But let's ignore that, right?  lol

You guys won't even do that.  So that fact alone crushes the Republicans.

He also established the Equal Pay Task Force to enhance enforcement of equal pay laws.  He helped increase the participation of women and girls in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math). He passed the Affordable Care Act so that being a woman is no longer considered a pre-existing condition. 

And he’s fought against Republican attempts to defund Planned Parenthood, one of the largest providers of women’s health services in the country.

You guys?  Nothing.

Remember "Julia," the fictional female cooked up by the Obama reelection team to show how Obama's record on women's issues was superior to the Republicans' record? If you paid close attention, you saw Julia rely on government at every stage of her life. As I pointed out previously, the underlying message is the Left believes women need government at every step because they're not capable of doing it themselves. That, my friends, is pure misogyny, wrapped up in a Obama/Biden campaign package.

Leftists like Ms. Fluke have been conditioned to be just like "Julia": victims that can only succeed through government intervention. And thanks to media outlets like CNN and MSNBC, Fluke can continue to milk her infamy a little while longer. Put another way, the Left keeps using Ms. Fluke and she keeps talking, all the while ignoring or completely missing the irony of her media-driven empowerment being used by the media to strip women of their true power by trying to reduce them to little girls who need a Daddy to help them.

A Daddy like...Barack Obama.

It's no surprise how that works out, is it?

Nice try, Lindaman.  Helping people isn't hating people.  So I guess you guys really despise Jesus's philosophy. lol

This is the same nonsense you right wingers spew when you constantly claim Democrats are making black people "slaves" because they are in favor of terrible things like equal rights and affirmative action.

We know what you're really saying, so don't try to hide it.  Just come out and say "Why don't these dumb n-ggers and bitches like us?"

What has the GOP done to help women, besides blatantly saying "Fuck you" to them?  And raping transvaginal probes?

Get back to us when you guys establish a White House Council on Women and Girls.

And increase funding on prevention of Violence Against Women.

When you guys stop fighting anything that benefits women, maybe women will take Republicans seriously. 

Until then, you're in big trouble.

But hey, there's always lunatics like Warchickenhawk, who writes:

"I'll bet Da Fluke us for legitamizing [sic] pot and forced fagotry [sic] too..."

Does this even make a lick of sense? 

Resa, you're so stupid you're not even a good bigot.  Lindaman, this is your posse.  You should know you're in trouble when even extreme right-winger Freepers think Resa is fucking insane.

And if you're still too stupid to figure out why right wingers are anti-women, let's take a look at a lovely factual version of "Julia" that reflects the conservative side, brought to you by Suzie Q:

"Why Aren't They Saying GOOD Things About Bain Capital?"

Thomas Lindaman writes:

With the 40th anniversary of the Watergate story, the media have taken a look back at the state of investigative journalism and they're not happy with what they've found. They're shocked, shocked I tell you, that investigative journalism has gone the way of the 8 track player! Sure, there are a handful of little-known sources they've found, but they're the exception, not the rule. "We need investigative journalism!" they cry from their computer keyboards!

Let me ask you big-time mainstream media advocates of investigative journalism a simple question. Have you looked in the mirror lately? As much as you whine about the lack of investigative journalism, you fail to see the reason for its alleged decline is, well, you. The journalism profession has become little more than a public relations firm working for the Left and any cause it deems vital, no matter how apathetic the public is about it. While media sources spent precious minutes on Mitt Romney's stupid behavior in high school, not even a microsecond was spent doing a serious story about the national security leaks coming out of the Obama White House.

Except on every major newspaper and news network.  You're just angry because they can't somehow tie it to Obama. 

The right-wing media is doing what it does best: Trying to connect the leaks to the White House (since there's a Democratic President in there right now), based on absolutely nothing.

To Lindaman, this is "investigative journalism."

Remember the story about Obama bullying a student in school? No? Not surprising because you guys didn't think it was important enough to address. But Mitt Romney? Why, he's fair game!

Lindaman, as usual, is parrotting the "Obama pushed a little girl, so he's a bully too!" story that right wing websites are desperately trying to spin.  There's some "investigative journalism" for ya!  Way to go, NuBreitbart!

Let's see here... In a book that's been around for ages, that also has a disclaimer about composite characters, Obama himself states he pushed a girl, one time, when he was eight years old, and felt horrible about it.

Romney assaulted a classmate when he was seventeen years old, held him down (with the help of other bullies because he's a coward), and cut off his hair with scissors while he was screaming terrified on the floor... because he acted gay.  And now he gives a non-apology of how he "doesn't remember" it.

Lindaman thinks these events are exactly the same.  This is how Republicans think, folks.

As far as the Romney bullying incident... The simple fact is: Five eyewitnesses, many of them friends of Romney (such as Stu White, who Romney described as his oldest friend.. and was contacted by Romney's brother to serve as a surrogate to defend Romney against this... but who refused to do so) have confirmed that the bullying incident happened, Romney was not punished for it (think his dad may have something to do with that?) and that they took part, and feel awful about doing it now.  That's not my definition "flimsy investigating"... that's more like "incontrovertible fact."

Romney's response is that he didn't remember. We're talking about multiple people holding a boy down, as he cries and struggles, for the sole purpose of humiliating him.  The boy was terrified!  One member of the small mob said this has stuck with him and has always troubled him. But Romney? He can't even recall the story. Either this sort of thing was so typical of him that this particular event was unremarkable, or he isn't troubled by his actions. It hasn't stuck with him. What kind of weapons-grade psycho do you need to be, to not remember doing this?!

It figures that Romney would need a group of people to help him hold down a skinny effeminite kid.  Romney dodged the Vietnam war, but doesn't hesitate to be a hawk from the safe sidelines. He eggs people on, but doesn't endanger himself.  Yep, he's a Republican.

Also, the fact that this story has not died is all on Romney and his team, not the fantasy "liberal media", you conspiracy nut.  Romney could have handled this in a way that showed he had grown since then, and has stronger character. He didn't. He just giggled and said he doesn't remember it. Which means he's lying, or he really doesn't remember it (which means he's a narcissistic sociopath).

You just don't get it, Lindaman.  It's the way Romney is handling the bullying story now that demonstrates his complete lack of moral standing.

Romney has come out as being anti-gay equal rights, and has said he doesn't believe in civil unions or gay marriage. And surprise, he has a history of being a homophobe.  But yeah, this is a non-story.  At least according to fellow right wing homophobes.

One last thing: Lindaman claimed in an older blog post that he himself was bullied in school.  This new desperate reductionist post by Lindaman, proves that Lindaman was in fact not bullied.  So, the one old post that Lindaman has made that was actually pretty good, is now proven to be just more Lindaman bullshit. 

Lindaman, you weren't bullied in school, just ignored.  Just like present day.  And there's plenty of "investigative journalism" to back that up.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your point of view), bloggers are doing what Woodward and Bernstein were doing during Watergate. I know you media types don't consider blogging to be legitimate journalism because of the lack of accountability when a story is factually wrong (by the way, has the New York Times recovered from the Jayson Blair fiasco?).

Why is Lindaman bringing up this particular event, out of many others?  Because he hopes it'll crush affirmative action.

However, the blogosphere is proving you don't need to go to Columbia to point out corruption in the world around us. And given the state of what passes for mainstream journalism these days, the blogger sitting at home in his PJs is out-hustling the big name reporters you rub shoulders with at dinner parties where the topic of the so-called death of investigative journalism is discussed over brie and Chardonnay.

Maybe the reason the media are lamenting the "death" of investigative journalism is because they're afraid to dig into their own side's misdeeds. After all, it's always much more fun to try to take down the high and mighty when you have a personal vendetta, right? Ah, but when you realize your side, the one you've put so much personal stake into, is no better than the side you hate, it's not so fun, is it? There was a time when investigative journalists would put their feelings aside and go after the crooks, letting the chips fall where they may. But when you can't separate the personal from the professional, you're going to play favorites and, in doing so, help to kill investigative journalism through politically blind neglect.

If you really give a damn about investigative journalism, stop playing favorites and start sending out reporters to shine a flashlight into the dark corners of the Left. Sure, you may not get invited to as many dinner parties with those Leftists, but at least you won't get scooped like the National Inquirer did on the John Edwards story.

You're a liar.

Solyndra was a story broken by ABC News.

Fast & Furious, which is now resulting in Congressional investigations, was a story broken by CBS News.

The faces of modern media are... Rupert Murdoch and Limbaugh.

The right's idea of "investigative journalism" is heavily edited videos (Breitbart) and talking points issued by their party (Fox News).

The reason Lindaman's mad, is because there's no big scandals with the Obama administration.

So the "investigative journalism" on the right has been reduced to birth certificates, social security numbers, ancient irrelevant nonsense like Reverend Wright and Ayers, tweeting dick pictures, and what kind of mustard Obama uses.  Not that this is anything new.  Right wingers, including Lindaman, trashed John Kerry for... windsurfing.  So where's Lindaman's outrage about Romney jetskiing?

Yes, the media is to blame for all this. For decades now.

According to right wingers, there is nothing actually morally bankrupt about the outdated, mean spirited misanthropic right wing philosophy.  It's... the media.  How dare the media recognize these destructive elements in our society?

Sorry, Lindaman... you lost any and all credibility about investigative journalism, when you kissed the Swift Boaters' asses.

"YAY, WE WON! ... A Recall Election..."

Thomas Lindaman writes:

The Wisconsin recall effort is over, and the Left is scrambling to put the best possible spin on their failure to unseat Scott Walker. Naturally, they're pretending the whole thing never happened, but for those of us in the real world, it happened.

It's Wisconsin. Not exactly America's shining star.

As the population of the flyover territories dwindles to nothing (as agribusiness is closing in on a point where 5 guys at computers could run the farms of the whole region), it's easier to buy Representatives and Senators. They now have increasingly disproportionate influence on the country based on their population.

To my friends on the Left, I offer the following reasons why the Wisconsin recall effort matters on a bigger scale.

"We can't accomplish anything big, so let's spin the little stuff into big stuff!"

The exit polls were wrong...AGAIN! To hear the commentators on MSNBC (including woman-hater Ed Schultz)

Nice failed attempt to slip that through.  Laura Ingraham is a worthless ditz.  Get over it.

speak of the recall election, it was going to be tight. And in the end, the only things tight were the throats of the MSNBC folks as they choked back tears and more than a little crow announcing Scott Walker had won. When the media do exit polling, they tend to stay in friendly territory as to support their preconceived narrative.

"Stay in friendly territory"?  What does that even mean?  Can you back that up with anything?

Do you really think people are going to admit voting for that shithead?

This time, just like in 2000 when the media relied on exit polling and screwed up,the polls were wrong, and so was their coverage.

Again, do you really think people are going to admit voting for that shithead?

Just let this sink in for a second: New Republican candidates haven't won the popular vote in a presidential election since 1988.  No polling will alter that fact.

Union power in political matters is waning. The unions used to be a powerful political force in elections, especially for Democrats. However, as their relevance to actual work has waned, so has their effectiveness in achieving political ends. When the unions starting gunning for Scott Walker last year, they were fired up and ready to storm the Cheesehead Bastille. They faced a problem, though: time. Because of the steps necessary to recall a sitting Governor, the unions had to wait. As time went on, their presence waned to the point only people in Wisconsin knew there was even a recall effort going on. When push came to shove, the union efforts failed. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

One group represents teachers and sanitation workers and firefighters and cops (people who work for a living and live next door to us) and are trying to influence elections in order to advance their own interests.  The other group is largely controlled by a handful of people with the aim of consolidating wealth and power by influencing elections and advancing their own interest.  The right group... is not with the right wing.

We have, what, 10% Union enrollment countrywide public and private? There is no Union power in this country, and the right wingers won't stop until the whole concept is wiped away from the table. You'll take lower paying jobs and like it! So what If I entrust you to patrol the streets, to run into my burning house, to teach my children, I will pay you the absolute lowest I can pay you and if possible fire you and let a private company control all of that. Great system, great values. Thanks GOP!

Sorry that the Republicans will not get union support.  Maybe the unions just happen to prefer backing the party that does not want to screw the workers up the chute? Maybe some of the unions have people bright enough to realize that the only interest the Republicans serve are that of corporations.

Corporations = Maximum profit
Unions = Maximum compensation
Their 'thuggery' is justified and necessitated by the system of capitalism.

Anyone that thinks otherwise, is a sad pathetic tool.

So, Lindaman, when are you going to sign this card?

Democrats may cede elections they can't win. Something missing from the recall effort was the presence of Democrat support, especially monetarily. Say what you will about the amount of money Walker raised as compared to his opponent Tom Barrett, but the fact remains the Democratic National Committee didn't see the recall election as that important (even after saying it was very important when Walker's favorability ratings were in the tank).

Barett spent $4 million of mostly in-state money... and Walker spent $30 million of mostly out of state money, and Walker only managed to squeak by.

Walker, as a sitting governor facing recall, is not subject to the state's legal limits on campaign contributions under Wisconsin law.

This was a Wisconsin matter, it should be handled with Wisconsin money. Walker is the asshole here, taking gobs of out of state money, not the Democrats for not wanting to flush good money down a nearly endless rabbit hole. Especially when it's very likely Walker will just be indicted soon anyway.

In an effort to try to spin it, Democrats are saying it was just a statewide election with no impact on the larger political battleground. Perhaps the reason they felt that way is because they didn't want to spend money on a losing cause in favor of saving their pennies to try to save their favorite losing cause, Obama/Biden 2012.

This is coming from the guy that said Obama would lose against McCain. lol

This is what democracy looks like? Not so much. The anti-Walker chanters from last year must be scratching their heads at how they could have lost. Either that, or it's the head lice.

Because people who supports worker rights are obviously dirty hippies.  I'll take a dirty hippie over an inbred ignorant racist any day.

What they missed out on was the fact democracy isn't standing up, chanting stupid slogans, and making asses of yourselves. To truly enact change, you have to act on it. The recall effort failed in large part because the chanters became a nuisance instead of a sympathetic group willing to take action beyond signing a petition and heckling politicians.

What did you want them to do?  Shoot people? 

On the plus side, though, you had the "pathetic" part down pat. But don't be sad. Soon you'll have a bunch of Astroturf Wall Street folks joining you Lotta-Pa-Losers.

But hillbilly, you said billions are being poured into OWS by gazillionares.  So why didn't they beat the Koch SuperPAC for Walker?  Hmmmm?

But you would know what a loser is, wouldn't you?

You already proved yourself to be completely clueless when you tried to claim Soros was funding OWS through the Tides Foundation, and that blew up in your face.  So, where's the billionaires that are astroturfing? And for that matter, I'm still waiting for Warchickenhawk to back up any of her statements!  Hell, I'm still waiting for you to say how I was pimp-slapped.  You guys have had weeks to answer these questions.  And you've come up with... nothing.

The TEA Party isn't dead. Some of Walker's most strident supporters were members of the TEA Party. They may not have had the media coverage for the sheer body count of the anti-Walker forces, but they made their mark in small ways (such as cleaning up the Capitol after anti-Walker cretins made a mess of the place)

That's because Teabaggers are morons that believed it would cost $7.5 million to clean up the nonstick residue painters tape from the marble.  After all, Walker's government and Fox News said so. lol

Protesters had set up an elaborate system of maintaining cleanliness in the building.  OMG see the filth

ROFL, you easily led idiots.

and in big ways (like cleaning up the Leftist scum by kicking Barrett to the curb for a second time in two elections). Just because a movement is dormant for a time doesn't mean it's dead. It could be waiting for the next moment to make an impact on the country.

That's funny, coming from the guy who said OWS was dead when shitloads were walking the streets just a short time later. lol

You're nothing but a bunch of fat, loud, middle-age dimwits rolling around on medicare scooters in cheap, Chinese made American flag T-shirts holding poorly constructed, misspelled signs.  All you've accomplished is  instigating a downgrade of the American credit rating over a debt ceiling debacle of your own creation.

The Tea Party is just a Republican fan club. They are Republicans who had to figure out a way to dust off the old "tax and spend Democrat" attack without acknowledging that they were cheerleading  the enormous financial chaos of the Bush administration. It was GOP rebranding and nothing more. It's been ignorant, retarded, and yes, blatantly racist pond scum, led by the nose by disingenuous GOP corporate whores, from start to finish. The most generous way to describe it, is as a successful internal GOP coup by Grover Norquist, Dick Armey, and people like him.

There may be more states in play for Republicans in November. Wisconsin has been a Democrat stronghold for a while, as have many states in the Upper Midwest. This is mainly because of the strong union base in these states. With labor's unimpressive showing in Wisconsin, this may be a turning point for Republicans because union members may not be willing to back the union ticket this time. If other states follow suit, there are a lot of Democrat strongholds that could be toss-ups. Here are a few of them:

  • Iowa
  • Ohio
  • Michigan
  • Pennsylvania
  • West Virginia
  • Minnesota
Although Pennsylvania and West Virginia aren't in the Upper Midwest and Iowa is in more of the central Midwest, all share characteristics with Wisconsin with respect to the working classes in each state. If a worker's revolt happens in even three of these states, Democrats could be looking at a washout in November.

Wanna know something? Back in the day, everyone had the same sort of benefits that the public union workers did. Sometimes even more.

And then Reagan got elected, and the chiseling away of the private worker began enthusiastically. By the time they were through, workers were glad that to have any job, even if it had no medical or retirement package.

But guess what? They're not done with workers (including you, Lindaman), and they're gonna make sure that you're little more than man-cattle.

You know what this is really about... winning elections, by eliminating Democratic sources of funding. The poor can't donate to campaigns like billion dollar corporations can. Then, slowly, as the wages stay stagnant (thus continuing the trend), productivity continues to rise, the minimum wage drops, healthcare becomes a non-option for even more people, then you'll understand the impact. It's just so slow you don't want to pay attention.

Leftists are starting to see Obama's lack of leadership. One of the post-recall comments made by the Left was Obama should have campaigned for Barrett. (Not that it would have helped...)  This may be a sign the Left has finally seen Obama as a weak leader that doesn't inspire confidence in his followers. If this trend continues, the Left may not come out to vote, which makes the aforementioned states even more important and could tighten some of the races in other vital states, such as Florida. That doesn't bode well for Obama's reelection chances.

Ah yes... yet again, Lindaman trots out the "Obama's a weak leader" bullshit.

Tell that to Osama Bin Laden, the Somali pirates, Quaddafi, the families that got help after the BP spill, the passed financial reform, the ending of DADT, and the people that know that now he will go down in history as the president who expanded our country's social safety net and helped millions of Americans since they can't be denied health coverage due to pre-existing conditions.  Shall I go on?

Your idea of a leader, is someone who sits in a classroom after being told America is under attack.

If the Left wants to disregard the results of the Wisconsin recall election, they do so at their own political peril. It's not nearly as insignificant as they think it is.

Lindaman, you guys are cheering about winning... a recall election.

I'm not crazy about recall elections, but regardless: Walker already lost just by having a recall election in the first place. It's like celebrating a murderer getting a life sentence instead of the death penalty.

It's a recall election, because your guy was hated that much.  The people of Walker's state signed enough petitions to recall him, and almost got enough votes to do so. You Republicans do understand the level of hatred of your political heroes that is required for measures like that to be taken, don't you?

If you're celebrating winning a recall election you've sort of lost track of what it means to be liked.  Are Republicans really this slow in the cranium?

The GOP poured $27 million dollars to defend a legally-elected governor just from stopping the mob from burning down the Capitol.

I'd expect it would be a lot harder to win a recall election than a general election no matter what, as many people believe people should be allowed to serve out their terms (I tend to think that way myself).

But this has been egg in Republican faces. They have been humiliated by having to hold a recall election in the first place.

You think union-haters have some sort of mandate from the people? Hell, it took that $27 million just to keep the torches and pitchforks away from your boy.

This is like winning back your job in a lawsuit against an employer who really wants you gone.

When's the last time you saw Republicans bragging about something like this?  They won... a recall election. That's shameful just on the face of it.

Republicans are really starved for respect these days.

You can't claim (as Republicans always do) that right wingers speak for the American people. They clearly do not. Just the fact their governor is so widely despised to have this recall election occur demonstrates the  Republicans are delusional about that. The recall election was the loss. It's hard to beat an incumbent even during a normal election. All this has demonstrated is Republicans are so widely hated by Americans that we will do our best to remove them from office even when they already won.  Do you think this guy is going to win re-election?

Democrats didn't spend enough money. They thought they could win on being "right" and that the good guys always win. They should've known better.  They needed to throw everything at it.

In this election, the SuperPACs for Walker outspent the Dems and the Union 9:1.

Yes, he survived, but only because of tens of millions of dollars of out of state money so he could outspend his opponent 9:1.

So, let me get this straight: Barely surviving a recall election, which was held because you're so widely hated, after dumping millions of SuperPAC money into it, is now a "victory" for Republicans?


Republicans consider making the electorate so angry that they had a million people sign a recall petition over one issue, and barely surviving a recall election, after outspending their opponent several fold... as an overwhelming popular mandate for the Republican/Tea Party agenda.

But yes, Wisconsin is in play for 2012. While I think Obama still has the lead, he will have to expend resources there to ensure a win.

The Democrats also have to field a decent candidate, not the guy who lost to Walker in the first place.  I had a suspicion Walker would win when the Democrats decided to re-nominate Tom Barrett. I mean, seriously...Barrett again? Barrett's lazy butt tried to sneak in a quick, easy win, with only two months to campaign versus a year.  They picked poorly and funded poorly.

Regardless, money wins elections. If ever you needed proof, here it is.  Money can't buy you love, but it sure as hell can buy you a government.

Most governors I approve of, don't end up in a recall election two years through their shift. It's no surprise to me at all that he won this recall election, but it would shock me if he won re-election.

Those of you who don't like having a state government that is so obviously bought and paid for, I suggest you vote with your feet.

Walker's agenda took a much bigger hit: He has a Democratic senate now. Walker's posse won't be able to ram legislation through in violation of state law anymore, which pretty much ruins Walker's style of government.

What's saddest for Wisconsin, is that when there was a governor faced with a budget gap, he chose to close it with a group that is decidedly (and nearly completely) part of the middle class. Corporations got their tax breaks. The wealthy kept their low taxes and their health savings accounts. But those public workers? Republicans really stuck it to them, didn't they? Now they'll have to take an extra year to pay their college loans or convince their kid to take a year of community college before starting their major in the school of their choice. At least the budget is balanced on their blue collared, very middle class backs. Kudos to Walker for that... to right wingers, he's a hero.

Why should anyone should give a damn about respecting the opinion of anyone who believes Walker should be governing Wisconsin?  Even Republicans shouldn't be tolerating that.  Some kinds of evil you just shouldn't put up with.

This just further proves the obvious:

Republicans live off hurting fellow Americans.
