Odin and Internet willing (Speaking of which, don’t we need a patron saint of the Internet or a web god of some kind?) I will be posting results from the Wisconsin recall election this evening, at least until it becomes clear who is winning. Until then some background:
GNews) — The vote will bring to a conclusion more than a year of turmoil after Walker pushed through a bill stripping workers of collective bargaining rights in an effort to fix a hole in the state budget. Polls have shown Walker, just 17 months into his term, with a small lead over Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett after a campaign that’s shattered state spending records and further divided an already polarized state. Both candidates worked in a flurry of last-minute stops in the campaign’s final days, all too aware that turnout will be critical.
Think of the glaring teatard inconsistency here: because nothing says small government conservatism and love of constitutional freedom quite like making it illegal for citizens to assemble and negotiate with the government on wages or benefits.
