    Rumor has it that Walker may call a special session so that they can get drilling rights approved. It won't happen though if that last seat goes to a democrat.

    No need for that.

    If people not focusing on the Senate as much of Walker are "ignorati" and are neglecting an important part of the Wisconsin election, then it would've stood to reason that you'd have at least nearly as much about the Senate as you had about Walker. If the Senate was just as important, you could've forgone some posts...of which you have more than 400....about Walker and instead made them about the Senate. Wouldn't have taken you any further time, wouldn't have required you to have a six figure check, it just would've required that your supposed "focus" on the "important parts of the Wisconsin election" actually have occured prior to...well, TODAY. However, it didn't...which is hwy you had plenty of time, without a six figure check, to post TONS about Walker but nary a peep about the Senate.

    You do get to talk about what you want to talk about when you want to talk about it.

    And I get to point out the hillarious irony and ridiculousness of you lecturing people for not focusing on the Senate and talking about Walker when you've spent a year...not focusing on the Senate and talking about Walker.

You're basically setting up a scenario biased immedietely towards your ends by creating a scenario where at best the Republicans came out neutral and at worst lost. No shocker that a hyper partisan like yourself tries to cache a discussion in an obvoiusly bias and slanted way, but it's not a useful way to view it.

    Bush lost Wisconsin in 2000 by 4k votes and in 2004 by 11k votes. Extremely thin margins.

    After last nights results, one could make the argument that Obama may be in deep, deep doodoo there. But, at the very least, his campaign is going to have to spend a lot more money in states like Wisconsin than they had planned. And with his fundraising well behind his 2008 pace, that could present some significant problems.

    . . .and for the 1456987th time, a right winger has just finished quoting his Messiah rush limbaugh.

    Difficult to say what's more pathetic--the fact that right wingers are actually stupid enough to believe that any money not dumped into union pockets will actually be returned to the people in the form of lower taxes, as opposed to subsidies for specific individuals. . .

    From 1995 through 2009, state Sens. Luther Olsen, Dale Schultz and Sheila Harsdorf all had stakes in farms that received between them more than $300,000 in taxpayer funds.

    What last night showed is that the people support what Walker is doing and that results actually matter. That doesn't bode well for November for Obama because Obama cannot run on his record. Unions wasted millions and millions of dollars to lose in a landslide. That message will resonate all over the nation. Watch Obama poll numbers now.

    Scott Walker received reportedly 70% of his funding from out of state thus denying the voter of Wisconsin the right to determine their own governor. The practice is wrong no matter who does it or who benefits. Wrong is wrong.

    Not wise to count chickens...but if voters are going to ask themselves "Who's more likely to help me get back to work?" three+ years in office suggest that the answer won't be President Obama.

    Er…uh actually...The Conservatives showed the Democrats ‘just how much money they need to spend to win these elections.’ Good luck with that next time…

    It won't be Romney either. Corpgov is not the answer to disaster capitalism caused by corpov. Big money owns both candidates.
