America, take note: There was a time when Wisconsin was headline news. You must remember … Continue reading How the media works in one image
Today Wisconsin holds its first batch of recall elections against 6 republican senators who had the temerity to vote on solutions for their state budget issues rather than running away to Illinois as the voters elected them to do.

Cross posted at the Minority Report: The internet has had a liberating impact for humanity. It allows the average person access to more information faster than kings and presidents of old. It is a platform for everyone from Charlie Sheen to protesters in Egypt to express themselves. The internet is also unforgiving. The teenage girl … Continue reading The internet never forgets
POWIP noticed something from Mickey Kaus that I didn't: It appears the Democrats had not accepted the concessions outlined by Walker in an email to some Dem senators (an email his office released). These were discussed below. They allowed collective bargaining over a broader range of issues, but kept the provision ending mandatory union dues … Continue reading A footnote on Wisconsin but an important one
...they are playing the role of Wellington. Was it only 48 hours ago that liberals buoyed by polls and news reports were convinced that Scott Walker and the republicans were about to back down? Now not even one day after they were proved spectacularly wrong the left has decided on a new meme to replace … Continue reading Yes E.D. Kain Wisconsin is the Republican Waterloo…
Donny Deutch is calling the Governor Fascist, Mika is still hitting the governor and the republicans but points out the Democrats having fled have not a lot of lets to stand on.

One thing I've noticed in covering protests is that you get a lot of hangers-on. For example at almost every Boston protest you will get one guy who carries his US flag with corporate symbols replacing stripes, you will get a guy with a Palestinian flag. And if the tea party is anywhere nearby I … Continue reading The sign that the battle in Wisconsin is practically won
In Wisconsin the word is that the absent senators are on their way back Playing a game of political chicken, Democratic senators who fled Wisconsin to stymie restrictions on public-employee unions said Sunday they planned to come back from exile soon, betting that even though their return will allow the bill to pass, the curbs … Continue reading Captain Ed and Kaus get it
The NYT talked a bit about Koch today and told about his philanthropic work: Mr. Koch, a billionaire who is perhaps best known for his family’s contributions to conservative causes, got a standing ovation from scientists, Nobel laureates and politicians of various political stripes as he opened the new David H. Koch Institute for Integrative … Continue reading It all depends on what you call evil, the backwards world of Wonkette UPDATE: Fark?
You need to be reading Ann Althouse these days. And don't miss this exchange on Bloggerheads TV Watch the whole exchange, this particular quote is spot on: There is no comparison between the rhetoric of the tea party and the rhetoric of these protesters. This is 100 times worse, I mean you have to look … Continue reading If you want to know what is actually happening in Wisconsin…
As you may have already heard, the absent senators in Wisconsin are being held in contempt and not just by voters: Republicans voted, 19-0, to find the Democrats in contempt of the Senate and issued orders to Wisconsin law enforcement to detain them. "We simply cannot have democracy be held hostage because the minority wants … Continue reading The upside down world of the left and Wisconsin
The difference in Wisconsin coverage that is, why yes, Politico wrote about the double standard concerning "signs": “The mainstream media’s professed concern with uncivil engages only when it is practiced by conservatives,” asserted the Washington Post’s conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin. And conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, who has made her blog something of a clearinghouse of … Continue reading Am I actually seeing Morning Joe reporting on the media difference?
Well actually his opinion piece is actually titled titled: Wisconsin governor is waging jihad against unions And the piece starts so: Wisconsin Gov.
