    Coincidence! I always picture you carrying a pocket book.

    If money from out of state doesn't mean squat, why was so much out of state money sent to the Walker campaign?
    Millions of dollars were spent to create the recall and what do you have to show for those results? The win was bigger last night than the original election. People will always vote their pocket books and that is what matters. Walker's results show great improvement in the state and that is what led to the overwhelming results last night.

    Thanks for the link. "Conservanazis"? What a buncha whiney-babies. Some even resurrected the 2000 election. I'd say "unbelievably" if it weren't so believable as the "song that never ends." Never mind that it's 2012.

    Libs complained about outside funding when Californians voted to ban gay marriage for the 2nd or 3rd time. I wonder if libs will do the same thing and put these scott walker contributors on some **** list like they did with the proponents of traditional marriage.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well, as Joko pointed out, it wasn't just Walker who received out of state funds. Could it be, at all possible, that the people who voted in this election actually knew who they wanted to vote for and why? Is it really so hard to accept that maybe unions are just not the sacred cows you might like them to be?

    Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining, James. If political ads aren't effective, why is sooooooo much money spent on advertising and campaigning?

    Wonder what liberals are going to say using the money argument in supporting Obama this fall. His goal of raising a billion dollars is quite telling. Is Obama trying to buy the election like liberals claim Walker did in Wisconsin?

    Cons went on and on about outside Union money going into referendums in other states. As always, it seems like it's only a problem when the other side does it.

    If he wins, you'll be the first one shouting about the money.
