Hopper-King will go to recount! If you want to volunteer to help out, call our office! #wirecall #wiunion “
It actually would be kind of funny if she got the initial Waukesha total wrong again, so the Dems thought they won, then she reported the correct numbers. Kind of like Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown.
Sure - it seems I have a few minutes to spare ...
It's getting harder by the day.
Hey... it’s 5:00 somewhere on FR!
I missed the exact point you made in the first line!
I need to get some frosting for myself.
One thing I will say about tho is that it's always a true joy to see the knowitall/smartass/thread downer types handed a big plate of crow when their 'wisdom' gets flushed down the toilet at the end of the night.
Given that it’s going on midnight, correct me if I’m wrong. According to my calculations, it will be 4 wins for the GOP and 2 for the fascists.
So jealous!!!! Open them and put the rest in a Ziploc and save them for next week and that recall! ;-)
Hopper won the 2008 general by 163 votes over Jessica King and had a messy divorce last year. Never good in an election like this.
There’s a light ... shining in the darkness ...
I think I love you.
Jerk should have resigned.
