Some of that was funny. I laughed out loud when he told everyone making over $100k to leave...and there were only 3 people left. The rest of it just mad me sad for Americans. If I lived in the US, I don't think I'd have any choice but to be a libertarian. Not because libertarians are right, but because the state of politics and political discourse is so awful and beyond repair that my only hope would be to support anyone who would make it less a part of my life.

That's terrible news for Democrats in the upcoming election, especially in WI.

I wasn't trying to make you bite, I just thought it was obvious.

Walker just went through a recall. He ended up with more votes than the first time, by a lot. The OVERWHELMING reason given by people on the ground here is WI is because of the union situation. If a random liberal judge throws it out, it's just going to solidify everyone even more. I mean, there is almost no way that WI is going Obama anyway, because everyone up here seems to like Paul Ryan (I see his name on signs all over the place and I don't even know the name of the person running against him*). But this will bring out the Walker and Ryan people in full force as a '**** you' to that judge.



*He's concurrently running for Congress and VP. I'm talking Congressionally. I know he's running against Obama in the national race.

I mean he still got what, 53% of the recall vote? Won't this equally motivate the 930,000 people who signed the recall petition? The numbers aren't overwhelming enough either way to make it obvious.

Your biased reasoning is kinda obvious since you assign Obama little chance of winning a state he has led in the polls wire to wire and won handily in 2008.

In his previous race he won by 5.8%, in the recall he won by 7%. That's a lot of votes, considering 2.5 million people voted.

As you know it doesn't matter what happened in 2008, especially since the VP candidate is a sitting congressman from the state.

It sure does matter that you're giving Obama no shot of winning a state he currently leads in the polls. A 1.2% increase isn't that persuasive, sorry.

Sure. $20?

Full disclosure, Nate Silver has Obama as a 83% favorite to win Wisconsin.

I just wanted to be fair.....if you recall, you gave Obama "almost no way" to win Wisconsin. $20 straight up if you want it.

I did not know that. But I hope the left there dont celebrate too much. Especially the ones who will lose their jobs if it aint overturned.
