    Just out of curiosity and I TRULY dont know the answer...but does the dollar figures spent on the recall vote INCLUDE all the money that has been spent by the DNC and Unions over the last two years in pushing for and ramming through the recall initiatives the recall votes on the senators, and now against the governor or does it JUST include what was spent on the actual campaign? And if you tallied up advertising costs for the MSNBC coverage and pro-recall efforts, how much would THAT have added to the cost? What does advertising run on a cable network (albeit, a dog like MSNBC) run these days?

    Lol. Wisconsin has truly been a funny thing to watch over the public union issues. I remember when their Dems fled the state in order to block the vote that they knew they would lose. They lost that battle and then tried a recall election, which they lost. It is embarrassing and only speaks towards their character. What they did was childish, and I'm glad that it didn't work towards their favor.

    I hope you aren't applying this to all Dems. But I do expect this behavior from the grown up children that pushed for his recall and supported cowardly state reps fleeing the state to try and block a vote. Hopefully rational people will learn from this on both sides and just ignore them. They lost, and they can cry harder.

    Will you go on record as being 100% against rioting plain and simple. It is the inclusion of the word sensless that seems to imply that you would be for rioting is you in certain instances.

    Its just more than a little bit pathetic that they claim they have been 'outspent' and that is why they lost when they have been on the news, in demonstrations, had CNN and MSNBC chumming for them for a year and a half, had union paid protests, school teacher coordinated mass protests...ad nauseum. Wisconsin has been barraged by recall after recall and they wonder why their state is divided. Hey...use whatever tactics you want...but I hope the voters remember what their 'representatives' have done over the last two years.

    Ummm...new to modern politics? Its common knowledge that the most expensive aspect of ANY political camgaign is adverstising.

    First of all, Walker's direct contributions were only $12.1 million. Those are the funds used for direct campaign activity. The rest was from outside groups in the form of advertising.

    More than $66 million was spent on the race as of May 21, making it easily the most expensive in Wisconsin history. That money was spent on an all-out barrage of television ads, direct mail, automated calls and other advertising that permeated the state for months.
