    Yeah, that's the really tricky part that alotta folks aren't taking into consideration.

    Can you just imagine the blubbering and knashing of the teeth that is going to go on, if Walker wins the recall election?

    Wow. In addition to recalling Governor Walker, they have also successfully recalled the Lt. Governor, the Senate President, and 3 other Senators.

Well done, guys.

    Buh bye, Fitzwalkerstan.

    The people of Ohio did the next best thing. They held a referendum on that law and defeated it.

    Hasn't Chris Christie done everything but try to remove public worker rights like Walker and Kasich? He seems really anti public unions to me.

    They called for an election. One side has spoken. I don't know the outcome of that election, but it will be different since there are two sides to the second stage.
