    Re: WI Democrats ready to submit signatures to recall 6th Republican senator

    Most of the Democrat state senators supported all of the same cuts, so it's not like it will be much better. Even with collective bargaining reinstated, the unions will be severely hindered and the state will see the same draconian budget measures.

    I'm not trying to hate on the movement against Walker and the Republicans, but people need to realize that this is class warfare and that the democrats are part of the problem and not the solution.

    At least you have lots of homegrown beer to drink when things get screwed up in your state. Not a lot of states have that same benefit. Texas does. Shiner Bock, please. Oh yea, our beer is better than yours. Once you drink a Shiner Bock, you will never go back to that watered down crap you have in Milwaukee.

    Every state has their own delicious local and regional beers. I'm not a fan of Bock beers, so have fun with that. As for Texas having better beer, you don't have New Glarus or Lakefront breweries so you really can't even say that.

    As for watered down crap, most people I know here don't drink Miller unless it's going to a Brewer game and you want a ton of cheap beers to pound, same as anywhere else.

    I got on the PBR train long before everyone else, and still drink it. It's lame that it became such a fad, I don't really get it, I don't think most people that drink it actually like it.

    I couldn't possibly look as silly as you look trying to act like this isn't significant. Let me know when you're done folding your arms and stomping your feet.

    Here is a list of the senators that face recall, and how their district voted in the recent SC election that was turned into a proxy vote on Walker and the bill.

    Sen. Randy Hopper (R) - Prosser 53% (has some personal issues with wife/girlfriend - possible recall)
    Sen. Dan Kapanke (R) - Prosser 42% (likely to be recalled)
    Sen. Sheila Harsdorf (R) - Prosser 49%
    Sen. Robert Cowles (R) - Prosser 58%
    Sen. Luther Olsen (R) - Prosser 55%
    Sen. Alberta Darling (R) - Prosser 66%



    Sen. Jim Holperin (D) - Prosser 55%
    Sen. David Hansen (D) - Prosser 53%

    Robert Wirch (D) - Prosser 49%

    That's a bit disingenuous. Prosser was leading by an astronomical amount before any of the union legislation happened. While it's possible that these numbers are an indicator of what might happen they are by no means a crystal ball. No WI SC justice has ever been elected out of office. That's not quite the case in the senate.
