Wisconsin Election Turnaround ‘Unprecedented’ Says Union
A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 9 April 2011 | John Semmens

Posted on 04/09/2011 11:56:57 AM PDT by John Semmens

Wisconsin union officials are calling the post-election correction of an error that converted a 200-vote deficit into a 7,000-vote lead for the conservative candidate, incumbent Justice David Prosser, for the state Supreme Court judgeship “unprecedented.”

“In every other instance in which previously uncounted or miscounted votes have been brought to light it has been to the benefit of the progressive candidate,” claimed Christine Lamitina, spokeswoman for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) of Wisconsin. “Is this election in Wisconsin going to be the exception that contradicts a well-established history?” Lamitina appealed for President Obama to “step in and right the wrong that’s been done to the working people of this state.”

SEIU Vice President for Politics and Growth, Bruce Colburn vowed “unrelenting efforts to restore victory for Joanne Kloppenburg. We spent millions of dollars and millions of man-hours to get her elected. We won’t take ‘no’ for an answer. We will takeover the streets. We will clog the courts with lawsuits. We will shut this state down if that’s what it takes to get justice for our cause.”

So... “We’ve been able to steal every other close election. It’s proof something’s wrong here because we didn’t steal this one.” ??

What they mean is, it’s UNPRECEDENTED that they weren’t given the time to cook up enough absentee ballots in MAdistan to put the Dem over the top, as usual.

Some Madison precincts were held VERY late into the morning for that very purpose. They got snookered, and they don’t like it.

What I find REALLY “unprecedented” is that the union mafia trying to unload one of their commie lib activists on the Supreme Court who ALWAYS wears a red scarf! What they hell is she supposed to be? One of those “cowboys” in that “Tombstone” movie? What’s the red scarf all about?

Or in more accurate terms:

Union officials shocked that they got caught skimming votes and are now going to try to bring legal action to cover up their fraud.

Stare decisus says that Democrats should be allowed to steal all elections, and when their theft is denied, they have been DISENFRANCHISED.

Satire doesn't work so well when it is indistinguishable from the daily news.

SEIU: "We stole this election fair and square, just like every one that we've ever won."

I am certain they were equally shocked when in neighboring Minnesota ballot boxes full of votes for Al Franken were just “found” days after the election.

Unions have a “right” to win close elections, just as they have to collective bargaining. Everyone knows that.

“We will takeover the streets.”

“We will shut this state down if that’s what it takes to get justice for our cause.”

SEIU is announcing it’s intent to commit organized crimes and victimize innocent people.

This has RICO written all over it.

I hope that the bloody civil war doesn’t start in Wisconsin. I mean, while I like their cheese, it’s too damn cold in Wisconsin.

In the early 70’s I flew into Baraboo for business with Arctic Cat. It was 37* below zero. I could feel my leg hairs breaking as I walked across the tarmac. I couldn’t get out of that state quick enough.

““In every other instance in which previously uncounted or miscounted votes have been brought to light it has been to the benefit of the progressive candidate,”

In other words: “ S*&t! The conservatives have FINALLY learned how to play the game.”

We won because we made them cheat in the blind. They THOUGHT they would only need a few manufactured votes - SORRY SUCKERS!!!

Slime-media reporting rule #101:

If the liberal/Democrat wins, after a hundred recounts, by just a single vote then that is a mandate for the liberal to enact anything they choose without question.

However, if the conservative candidate wins by a margin of less than 20%, then that shows “mixed results” and signals that there is unrest and unease in the electorate about anything the conservative candidate might do.

Many of the libs seriously tried to make the argument that since the governor was a Republican and the legislature now had a Republican majority, the voters should elect extreme liberal Kloppenberg because she’d be in contrast. I’m certain they’d want a conservative judge if it were a Dem gov and a Dem majority in the legislature. (smirk)

1. “Mistakenly” report a smaller vote total to the AP.
2. Union thugs think the election is closer than it is. They forge what they think they need to win.
3. Wait 24 hours, when it’s too late for the Rats to forge any more votes.
4. Catch your “mistake”.

Presto! Vote fraud neutralized.

Some quoteworthy out-takes of Semmens’ satire, from the article…

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) concurred with Reid’s stance adding that “this organization and its supporters are the ‘life’s blood’ of the Democratic Party.

and, also this…

…the Obama Administration is considering sending ground troops to Libya. Rebels fighting Dictator Qaddafi’s forces complain that “America’s ‘humanitarian bombing’ is not doing enough to help us destroy this enemy of Allah.”
