    however, Wisconsin is a swing state. So, that being said, I wholeheartedly support the left wing pouring their local money and resources into a doomed recall movement, rather than the presidential campaign, and i especially support the Obama campaign trying to push back and tamp down that effort to cause the same groups to focus on his reelection - thus skylining and deepening any strife within the movement, generally wasting resources and demoralizing the base. it'll make the ice cream sunday i'm looking forward to the day after the election all the sweeter.
    Good point, but I could swear that I heard a Union member on Gibson's radio show talking about how the union sent him a letter stating that they would be taking an extra $5 out of each check to further the recall campaign in WI. Now ofcourse, these were 'donations' that would automatically be removed from the workers check, and you couldn't opt out.


    Nice.

    Yeah, Gibson asked the guy to hold on the line so he could possibly get a copy of the Union letter outlining this "donation".... Never heard anymore about it so I can only assume that it wasn't exactly how the guy explained it but none the less, it could have been close.
