Why do you want that? I would rather he repented and restored his relationship with his wife.

Well, the unions put $30 million into this night from out of state.

That's $30 million that Obama won't be getting.

MSNBC is hilarious. They are already charging Waukesha county with fraud and inciting the crowds before the race is over.

“How many D’s truly at risk—I hear Holperin is one...Anybody else..”

Holperin’s seat is the only one the GOP has a shot at.

So let’s just hope we win and skip taking shots at people?

How about we hope we win and call a shmuck a shmuck. Like walking and chewing gum, it's not that hard to do.

I’d rather he repented, restored his relationship with his wife, and resigned before the recall election so his personal problem did not ruin his state. He is quite in contrast to his fellow lost cause who lost because he had principles and stuck to them.

If he “repented” you’d let the wife make up her own mind, I hope.

A whole lot of repenting is cheap coin. The wife might demand harder currency.

I agree cheaters are losers. If GOP wants to continue to be the party of family values, unfortunately we have a higher standard to uphold than the Dems (it may be unfair but there voters don’t care about that stuff and our voters do)

Good, that means they think Darling has won.

And we will move Heaven and Earth to take Holperin out next week.

Pubs have held 3, Dems have knocked off Kapanke as expected. Looks like Hopper is going down too. That leaves us with a real cliffhanger in Darling. If she holds, the Pubbies carry the night 4-2. Otherwise the Rats get the senate and a big momentum boost.

Official drink for tonight is chocolate frosting and vodka in a highboy glass, garnished with crushed M&M shells.

1 still not over that everyone keeps saying the GOP will win ...

Ain't over till the Fat Lady sings - I remember 2000 with Tim Russert and the white board ...

Called it for Gore - then had to revise LATE ...

He looked like he wanted to rip the white board to pieces with his teeth ...

BTW: I will ABSOLUTELY ROTFL if DEMS initiate ANOTHER recall tomorrow for seats they did not win tonite ...

The Waukesha County results (or lack thereof) is odd. In the July 12 election, Menomonee Falls posted results at 9:32 pm.

which brain dead leftist is hosting?? i made the mistake of watching two minutes of rachel maddow last night- she was talking about the S&P downgrade- three minutes in she said it was politically motivated and only ONE party was guilty of politicizing the possibility of default- she then showed a ten second clip of mcconnell....

i turned the channel and understood why the twelve people that watch that station are the dumbest on the face of the earth....

It looks like Repub districts have finally smartened up. Waukesha is holding their totals until the rest of Milwaukee comes in so the Dems can’t “find” votes at the end to turn a miraculous victory - Hang tough Waukesha!

I bought a bottle of that today - we were having German breakfast for dinner. Brotchen, leberwurst, boiled eggs...

The dang stuff is expensive! And I am allergic to everything in it - but my wife likes it. ;)

Wispolitics: “Though Pasch has held a lead in returns reported by the media, CERS executive director John Hogan says numbers Republicans have collected suggest the incumbent will win. That would preserve the GOP’s majority in the state Senate at 17-16, compared to 19-14 going into tonight’s recall elections. “

MSNBC is pathetic....I am so pissed at their coverage. I know I shouldn’t be, but the obese retard Ed is basically giving the Democrats a free show for the past 2 hours!

No one Republican guest...how does Comcast management allow them to get away with this crap. He’s had democrat after democrat on his show... embarrassing.

Hopper only squeaked into that office on 163 votes back in 2008. He was clearly the most vulnerable based on historical data let alone his personal problems.

Well, there was that little outing of AP’s advising RATS how many votes to manufacture based on precinct reporting.

Best anti-RAT-fraud strategy I ever heard of, and hope to see it repeated early and often, everywhere.
