My only point was, because of what the law permits, Van Hollen has an impossible task.

Too funny...from the Wis SJ:

GAB officials said they have received complaints about robocalls, including some saying petition signers don’t have to vote today to be counted in the election.

Not true, Magney said. People still need to vote to participate in today’s election, even if they signed the petition to recall Gov. Scott Walker.

“We’re telling people to be skeptical about information they get from robocalls, emails, door-to-door canvassers, etc.” he said in an email. “Rely on information from sources you trust, such as newspapers, TV and radio stations.”

Libs are talking recount if Walker wins and it'sclose.

Otherwise they have to pay the freight and I seriously doubt they can do that or would bother if Walker wins by even 2% or better.

If they’re already out with the “trucks with loudspeakers” I get the feeling they know their numbers aren’t where they need them.

Here's a different kind of poll that's kind of surprising coming from CNBC. So far, 88% say Walker prevails:

“Ich bin Amerikaner” - I am American.

“Ich bin ein Amerikaner” - I am a suger-coated carnival funnel-cake, boiled in oil.

“Ich bin Viener” - I am from Vienna.

“Ich bin ein Viener...”

“Mir ist es heiss..” - Gee, it is too hot.

“Ich bin Heiss...” - oh, baby, I got the hots...

“Mir ist est warm...” - a little warm in here, don’t you think?

“Ich bin warm ...” - I am gay a a twee-dollar bill.

Carefull, folks - German can trip you up.

LOL.

Well, IMHO, Romney will not hinder the nation nearly as much as Obama...and that’s the point on that score.

But, we can agree to disagree there if we must and still work on what we all must do anyway and that is elect the right people in the House and Senate and in as many state houses and legislatures as possible.

We are going to need them in any cae, not matter who gets in the WH.

And if Walker wins by more that 2% of the vote, the rats will have to pay for the recount. [WI Statute 9.01(1)(ag)2]
That’s even MORE money they won’t be able to spend in November.

BIll Brady carried 100 of the 102 counties in 2010 Ill governor race and still lost.

Madigan is the problem. Not much chance for us unless we sweep State house and Senate in Nov. Probably not much of a chance for that - same reason as 2010.

It will be up to We The People of Illinois to strap on a pair and organize and fight the vermin known as demo/communism in Illinois. Don't know how long it will take, don't know when it will happen, but it WILL happen...it will be war to be sure, but it is up to us stand up in Illinois, get behind the likes of Representative Mike Bost, who made a little history recently in the State Senate by blasting the biggest commie a-hole and leader of all that is evil in Illinois, Mike Madigan, He and John Cullerton run the House and Senate, respectively..they are the “leaders of the pack.”

Or, Congressional Representative Joe Walsh, who spit in the eye of jesse jackson and all the other commie race baiters recently, by telling everyone who these thugs are and that they only exist to race bait, keep the plantation mentality alive in black neighborhoods of Chicago by appeasing these folks in any way, all for their votes, and then living off the corruption that stealing money can bring.

C’mon, Illinois, have some guts, have some ballz and love your state enough to break down and destroy the Iron Curtin that is Chicago demo/communism. FIGHT!

Police would need to be called and the votes would be held aside for the challenge. So if you are following a bus that is going to the polls start rolling film and challenging voters. Nothing like a camera to clear the air.

As I said earlier in the thread, it's best to have a CCW with you, as well as a camera. People get irate at people taking evidence of criminal conduct.

POLITICO: Green Bay Packers make push for TOM BARRETT

A pair of Green Bay Packers are doing their small part to move the chains for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in today’s Wisconsin recall election.

As Raw Story reports, tight end Jermichael Finley and wide receiver Tori Gurley tweeted their support Monday for the recall effort, which seeks to unseat the only man to overshadow the Packers’ 2011 Super Bowl victory in Wisconsin — Gov. Scott Walker.

Jermichael Finley

@JermichaelF88

I’m proud to be a union worker. Support Wisconsin workers & Get Out the Vote on Tues. #wiunion RT!
4 Jun 12

Tori Gurley
@TGurley81

I’m proud to be a #unionmember. Support Wisconsin workers & Get Out the Vote on Tues. #wiunion RT!
4 Jun 12

Finley and Gurley aren’t the first Packers to support collective bargaining rights — which Walker has focused on limiting — nor are they unfamiliar with the role of unions. A players’ union battle with team owners almost axed the 2011 NFL season.

You Wisconsin folks have us on the left coast under the radar since Romney got the nomination clinched. But Diane Feinstein's likely GOP opponent in Nov will be Orly Taitz. Yes, THAT Orly Taitz.

The slime pit that is Chicago will always negate the way the rest of the state votes. We are lost here. Period. Unless some kind of MAJOR and I mean MAJOR transformation happens, it will remain lost to the Dems eternally.

I don’t see it happening in my lifetime. That’s why I’m getting out of this POS state while I still can and I have a slight hope of selling my house and not losing everything. It’s only gonna get worse.
