Through Monday night, the Greater Wisconsin Committee, which hoped to defeat Justice David Prosser and elect challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg, has spent an estimated $1,363,040 to air independent television ads.
They were followed by four groups seeking to re-elect Justice Prosser: Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, which has spent an estimated $893,990 on air time; Citizens for a Strong America, $813,660; Wisconsin Club for Growth, $415,860; and Tea Party of Wisconsin, $53,710.

Anyone seen the the HBO documentary on the "Triangle Fire". That was a look into the past without unions. It wasn't the distorted Micheal Savage take on the good old days. The story and photos of those burnt young women's bodies gave rise to the unions and possibly the New Deal.

What its prominence suggest, and what all science confirms is that the dog is a creature of the nose- A. Horowitz.
Some of the local guys I listen to are claiming a moral victory for the Republicans in the 204 vote loss.
I don't see it that way.
A loss is a loss.
It's time to move on to me.
Despite some MoTR's fervent desire to paint this as a referendum on Walker, 204 votes doesn't say a lot for either side.
This was a disgrace.
This was the AFSCME's effort to get a liberal activist judge elected to WI's supreme court and they succeeded.
It can not be framed any other way.
If conservatives want to take back what is ours, and stop the insane spending and irresponsible waste, we have to learn to play the progressives game.
To be continued.

If a recount is requested in Wisconsin:
Once official statewide results are in, the losing candidate has three business days to decide whether to request a recount.
If a recount is requested, the Accountability Board would issue an order that it start simultaneously in counties around the state. Workers would sort through all the voting materials, double-check that they have the proper number of voters in each area, and recount ballots.
Observers could challenge ballots, which would then be set aside for further review.
About 90% of ballots are counted by running a paper document filled out by a voter through an optical scanner, Kennedy said.
Once counties complete their work on a possible recount, the new official totals would be sent to the Accountability Board again.
After any possible recount, the issue could still go to the courts.
In one twist, state law calls for Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson to appoint the state judge who would hear the case if the loser of a recount in a statewide election goes to court over the outcome. Abrahamson and Prosser have clashed on the court. Prosser's private remark calling Abrahamson a "total bitch" was the subject of a recent political ad attacking Prosser.
The irony and hypocrisy is so very amusing! I'm kinda sitting this one out, and just let the comments pile up, then when I'm feeling down and need a chuckle, I read through them!
I especially loved the angst and ire by an acquaintence of Obama's getting picked up for soliciting prostitution!! Yet we weren't allowed to judge Mark Sanford, David Vitter, or Larry Craig!!
I've found a whole 'nother use for POTUS...........comic relief!
