We Are(n’t) Wisconsin

We Are(n’t) Wisconsin

No, it wasn’t — stolen that is, the recall election, though the same may not be said about our hopes and faith in this state.  If prayer is the last refuge of a scoundrel (at least according to Lisa Simpson — who may or may not have been unwittingly subverting the famous quote by Samuel Johnson, for whom “patriotism” was the last refuge), then I would add that denial and conspiracy are the last bastions for liberals to talk amongst themselves, scuttling underground while licking their wounds after losing an election.

Russ and Them

Russ and Them

Not to put too fine a point on it, but sometimes I swear that all there is to one politician’s attack on his or her rival is an extroverted confession of their own flaws and sins.  Take for example all the hoopla Wisconsin Republicans have made about “outside money” and “out-of-state union thugs” meddling in Madison and running the recalls.  Saying little of how next to nothing could be further from the truth, one needn’t do anything more than keep tabs on the company our politicians keep to understand whose pillow talk lies in bed with creeps.  Read the rest of this entry »

It Takes a Million to Hold ‘Em Back

It Takes a Million to Hold ‘Em Back

Think of it like the little light rail train that could: in 60 days 1.9 million signatures were collected by over 30,000 volunteers in all 72 counties of Wisconsin to force a recall election of Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, state senators Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau, Pam Galloway of Wausau, Terry Moulton of Chippewa Falls, and Van Wanggaard of Racine.  Per capita, these are more signatures to recall a governor than in California or anywhere else in the nation, ever.  A crowd of hundreds greeted the folks submitting box after box of petitions — some 3,000 pounds worth of righteous indignation — to the state elections board in Madison.

Also revealing is that the number of signatures wishing to recall Walker alone — comprising one-third of the 3.3 million registered voters in Wisconson — is almost the same amount of votes cast for him in the November 2010 election (1,128,900).  That’s a lot of pissed off people in one year — and they’re not all Dane County liberals or Bugs Bunnys.

And so it begins (again)

Public Service Announcement:

After a month and plus hiatus, due to technical difficulties, distractions, and detractions, I am humbled to proclaim scribblesabit back in business.  The management thanks your patience.

In honor of today’s historic occasion of having collected over one million signatures to recall Gov. Scott Walker — more than twice the amount necessary — in only 60 days, not to mention four additional Republican state senators, most notably majority leader Scott Fitzgerald, I am reposting the video below.

There is no greater weapon than irony.

If you haven’t signed up yet (and either live in or plan on moving to Wisconsin sometime soon), please sign on here so that next year we’re better mobilized to recall Walker.  Thanks!
