Wow. Where to start?
The "it's gonna be a late night in Madison" notion was virtually over by the end of Happy Hour -- which no doubt did cause some very late nights instead in Washington and Chicago. With little or no happiness at all. And naturally there were also the comparisons to the vibes of the night Scott Brown took down the Kennedy seat in 2009. More on both of these dynamics shortly.
The real story is: what happened this spring in Wisconsin was not a recall election at all. Pure and simple, it was a mulligan. A childish do-over. Moreover, it was a battle of government union members and their families against pretty much everyone else. And when that really crystallized in the minds of the voters, the unions' cause was doomed. The name Tom Barrett is irrelevant here. The biggest losers last night -- and there were many -- were big labor generally and public service unions specifically.
Succinctly put, the petty, protected, pampered lefty government unions -- still indignant over Scott Walker's 2010 win -- simply threw a 75 million dollar tantrum as a third do over on that same election. And the unions' reward from the citizens of Wisconsin for a year and a half of hell was a resounding "go to hell" of epic proportions. And if anyone doubts that there is a God -- and that He has a sense of humor -- the Wisconsin State Motto is, yep, "Forward."
You can't make this stuff up.

A picture is worth........
Top left picture reminds me of “Mummy Returns”...
Thank you for a good article. Time will tell if the GOP figures out what happened last night, and acts accordingly. So far, Romney hasn’t taken his campaign into McCain territory, so I’m hopeful. But...time will tell.
As for the Democrats, it’s good to see them not only in disarray from this win, but the financial outlay that accompanies it that will be hard to make up for November. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of jerks...
Very good article. Now, will Romney take note of this in his candidacy and eventual Presidency?
Just cleaning out the Left’s stash of Hopium, one state at a time.
Long way to go, especially here in Illinois. But if we have the hutzpah Wisconsin has shown, we can do it.
Geez! The maw on that woman in your picture.
I watch this video and think: “..to hear the lamentations of their women.”
