Two fifths chose a felon
Over Barry, thus prompting many limericks

Cicatrices are forming everywhere in reaction to yesterday's election results.

In Wisconsin we had the recall election primary. The unions poured money into Kathleen Falk's campaign, and she lost badly on the Dem side. Of course Gov. Walker won handily, but now he has to face Tom Barrett. Again.

Will the unions pour more money into Barrett's race? It's a conundrum because Barrett (current Mayor of Milwaukee) has been using Walker's so-called "anti-union" reforms to save money in Milwaukee. The unions are furious. Barrett has also allowed thousands of jobs leave Milwaukee over the last decade, and his hypocritical rhetoric blames Walker who has been in office 1 1/2 years and been under fire the whole time.

3 more weeks! June 5.

Friends of Scott Walker

it gives me some measure of hope after reading THIS. The nitwits who intend to allow Obams to be re-elected, by sitting out the presidential election and thinking they are saving the republic by voting down ticket need to get a load of that.

He'll have an election based cicatrix.

A Chippewa Falls man who repeatedly tried to block his estranged wife from driving to the polls Tuesday was hospitalized with head, neck and back injuries when she struck him with her sport utility vehicle. Jeffrey Radle, a Gov. Scott Walker supporter, was on foot. Amanda Radle, a recall proponent, was in a Dodge Durango.

The really infuriating thing about those who refuse to vote for our republican nominee is that they are waiting for some magical perfect candidate. Come on people - we get the chance to vote for a President once every four years and you want to keep waiting? No one is perfect - but we know how bad barry is. Right now we know - and he will get worse. How self hating do you have to be to subject yourself and everyone you know to worse than we have right now?

But, you see, if they vote for a person who supports abortion and gay marriage like Romney, then God will blame them.

That’s the theory.

More people voted for Walker yesterday than for the 2 Democrats running in the primary. If that is any measure of things.

I’m lost.

Isn’t a scar, in general, “new connective tissue over a healing sore or wound?” What makes a scar a cicatrix?

It’s not self-hating at all. It’s quite the opposite. It’s self-loving. I’m talking obsessive, Onan-level self-loving. These people put themselves ahead of the Republic because they have decided that their self-defined “purity” is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ON EARTH, and mathematical reality be damned, they will not take a step that they do not deem perfect. No matter it leads to Obama, no matter that people that they were willing to run the country like Newt or Santorum are obviously smart enough to do the proper thing - no one, nothing will “force” them to do anything.

I have a five-year-old at home. I understand the “thought” process.

my head is about to explode. xsjunior's class is supposed to go on a writing/lit field trip this friday. fine. they are going to Brookside Gardens and to visit F.Scott Fitzgerald's grave. fine. they are then supposed to have lunch HERE. um, i think not. i know she will not want to go [haven't spoken to xsjr just got this email from the teacher] and i am trying to formulate exactly what i am going to say to the teacher about this. CLICK on MEET OUR TRIBE. Something along the lines of: Seriously, save the f*ing $ and take sandwiches and go down to OCCUPY DC to show solidarity, you leftwing #@%^.

My sister moved to WV for a teaching job back in the ‘80s. There had been a murder of a woman by her husband. Dragging by the hair, etc. The editorials and letters to the editor were a riot. Locals were plenty pissed that some editor who moved to their area would presume to tell them what they could DO TO their women. OMGosh, my sister saved papers to show me. I could not believe what I was reading. Of COURSE, the editorials would shun this, while the letters took the opposing view. This went on for a couple of years while there was an arrest, trial and so on. NEVER would I have believe it. Hillbilly doesn’t begin to explain it.

I’m sorry, but that is not true. First of all, there were 4 Democrats running yesterday and one “fake” Democrat — just to make sure that there would be a Primary — to keep all but one of the dems from pulling out at the last minute. In addition, there was a “fake” Republican opposing Walker, just to be sure that the Republicans turned out and voted on the Republican ticket (instead of creating mischief on the Dem ticket).

If you subract the votes from the “fake” Dem and also subtract the votes from the “fake” Republican running on the Republican side, that adds up to about 25,000 votes. And then give those 25,000 votes to Walker. Walker squeaks out a victory over the sum of the remaining Democrats.

So, it is going to be very close in June unless the Dems stay home, and we turn out even more Republicans.

Since you didn’t ask, Aya Tomic and Kat Hansen are totally doable. But, in regard to your actual message - you’re right. I like the idea of trying to tie in literary eatery. Can’t be too many to pick from. However, this one ain’t worth the cutsie symmetry.

started by antiwar activists??? i guess i was so incensed by the LEFTWINGEDNESS of the place that i didn’t even make the literary connection to the place. it’s TOTALLY something this teacher would eat up with a spoon though, and the fact that the actual field trip is to Maryland sites and they are hauling into DC specifically to hit up this place? OMG i am still enraged.
