    glad to see that you agree that the government did not shut down.

    In any number of the 529 threads here on Wisconsin, this has been asked again and again and again by folks supporting the unions and against Walker and not one of the pro Walker people have ever been able to come up with any specific language he used in person or in an ad or piece of literature which said he was going to do this. Not one.

    largely thanks to the fact that Republicans split that collective bargaining portion off and passed it anyway - allowing Democrats to come back in time to debate and pass a budget. Democratic Senators had made it pretty obvious that they were willing to sit outside the state as long as their union masters told them to (and hey, with unions footing the bill it wasn't like it was costing them anything).

    Any evidence unions were financing their traveling?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    And I once asked you to show one politician that states the exact steps that they are going to take to keep X promise. You've yet to show one.
