Thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour.
Hey, Wisconsin, you won. There has been no ceremony, there has been no applause yet, there has been no formal surrender ceremonybut I am telling you, you have won. Congratulations, Wisconsin.
After 22 days of protests in the state that is the cradle of the rights of Americans who work for a living, after 22 days of protests against Republican Governor Scott Walkers efforts to strip union rights in Wisconsin, the governor has started to crumble. The governor started to cave. The governor started to do what he said he would never do.
(Walker clip played here by Maddow)
MADDOW: No room to negotiate. That was Governor Scott Walker more than two weeks ago insisting as he did repeatedly that he was not willing to negotiate. He was not willing to budge on union stripping.
But as it turns out, that after picking this fight, after saying he would never negotiate, Governor Walker is negotiating now
Then came news today that Scott Walkers own party, the states Senate Republicans caucused, and the news from that caucus was not good for the governor. Remember, the governor can only afford to lose three Republican senators and still get his union-stripping bill passed. And three Republican senators have now made public comments that the Republican governor should compromise

You had to see Maddow again Wednesday night after the nuke dropped, she asked the Democrat Senators in Il "Did you know this could happen?" It was priceless!
Mr. Maddow has no brain.
Premature gloating by Maddow ping!
Misread: thought you said “premature gloating by Maddow pig.” And you would be right.
LOL on Madcow.
Apparently Madcow was the only one unaware of the possibility. This rule came to light within a day of this becoming a story. Another example of the ignorance of the Commie Rats. Hard to believe they have no ratings over at PMSLSD
Delusional!!...yep, PRICELESS!! LOL!!
She had to go here for some comfort food....
Even more hilarious is her recitation of newspaper headlines which appeared to be critical of Walker. Who subscribes to the “opinion leader” model anymore? Rachel, wake up. Not only are newspaper editorial endorsements (or criticisms) not important in elections anymore - no one looks to them to form opinions on policies either.
One vestige of the newspaper era I’d like to see is an errata sheet - a corrections page for Maddow’s show. But I will not hold my breath.
The knew it could happen, it’s been talked about since the beginning of the FLEE PARTY. They were just counting on Republicans not having the balls to actually DO it.
Normally, I don't like to twist knives, but she(?) is so snarky and mean that I find it enjoyable.
What an ugly man...oh wait.....
That is so wrong on so many levels..but funny..
I am laughing hysterically at that thing. Remember Pat from Saturday Night Live?
Everytime we win something I purposely turn on MSGLBTC to see the psycho libs go nutty!!!
On the other hand I HATE to say this because it is an AWFUL, horrendous tragedy, but tomorrow's union protests are null and void due to the devastation in Japan.
And if the media chooses to cover turds complaining instead of the horror in Japan then they just will prove themselves to the left and center as union outfits.
I swear when I saw the video from Japan it reminded me of the movie "2012", utter devastation. I pray for those affected, they are saying hundreds dead. That is going to rise into the thousands.
And some prick on Chicago Tribune started bashing Fox News and Congressman King on a thread about the Japan Earthquake! Liberals are truly evil people.
“We won ...”
No lefty bias here. No sir.
Another”victory” like that and the union is finished
