For several mouths we have been told by the MSM that the republicans in Wisconsin were overreaching, that their actions are energizing democrats, that things like the Ryan budget were going to turn into disaster for the GOP.

Even after the Supreme Court win in Wisconsin the meme continued unabated.

Now after months of this we see a concrete measure of democratic confidence. Herb Kohl a 4 term democratic senator has decided to call it quits:

Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) will announce Friday that he won’t seek reelection in 2012, a Democratic source confirmed.

Kohl, the quiet Wisconsin senator and owner of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks, will depart from the Senate after four terms, setting up what could be a tough battle for his seat.

Hotair has more and Steve Eggleston at the green room has some commentary but more important than any of this is the situation.

In 2012 President Obama will be on the top of the ticket. We have been told repeated that he is a shoe in for re-election. Hasn’t the left been trumpeting poll after poll saying that no Republican in the field, certainly not a conservative like Sarah Palin, has any prayer against him? This would be the time when democrats would turn out en-mass to support him joined by the elderly in revolt against the Ryan plan!

Yet with all these trends that the media is pushing Mr Kohl decides its time to head for the hills.

There is only one response to this nonsense: Ride right through them, they’re demoralized as hell!

Question: What does the Set of Morning Joe have in common with the Bin Laden compound?

Seriously how embarrassing is it to be the only American Bin Laden doesn’t think is worth killing?

US officials have revealed that Osama bin Laden’s diaries contain the rather startling conclusion that he didn’t think Vice President Joe Biden was worth bumping off

Maybe that’s why they won’t release the Bin Laden photos, they figure it might actually push Radical Islam over the line to target him.
