    • The Silver Lining of Thanksgiving Past
      I had originally intended to write a rather cynical Thanksgiving weekend post – pointing out that the Indian tribes who helped the pilgrims in that first Thanksgiving feast made a big mistake by helping Europeans figure out how to live and prosper in the new world. Their reward, ultimately, was slavery, scalp bounties, smallpox (sometimes […]

There is a life about to start when tomorrow comes

Here is the Barricade song from Les Miserables sung by the protestors in Wisconsin last year in the Capitol rotunda.  This one has the lyrics at the top so everyone can sing along.

We are all Cheeseheads now.  Go Wisconsin, beat the mighty toilet paper kings!

  1. This isn’t so much about the outcome (slim) but that how a recall of a governor is a good thing when it’s Democrat Gray Davis but bad when there’s a republican’s job at stake. It will be interesting to watch Team Obama’s reaction to the outcome, good or bad, tonite.

  2. it is not looking good for the unions and democrats. Let’s hope their ground game is up to the task. Obama’s young people don’t seem to be around much. I really hate to see what will happen if Governor Goofball wins.

    • I was just reading a piece by Rick Pearlstein that suggests that support for throwing Walker out is broader than people think.

  3. O/T … but I saw this perfect example of School Administration Gone Wild (on power!!) and thought of you. http://www.wcpo.com/dpp/news/local_news/popular-senior-denied-diploma-because-of-too-much-cheering

  4. On Wisconsin!
    This gave me goosebumps; I’m such a sucker for this sort of thing.
    I know it’s an English musical, but no people protest like the French and, when they do, the government listens because there is a collective memory of what happens when the ruling class turns a deaf ear.
    Shave and haircut, two bits!

  5. Reports on the ground mention ENORMOUS turnout. Of voters who don’t generally get polled. As one activist said, since the recall movement didn’t have the money to put it in the media, they had to get down on the ground and talk to people! My brothers and sisters in AFSCME have been on the ground there in a big way. Walker may be in BIG trouble if turnout stays at this level.

    • Thanks for that update, allimom99. If you hear any more news, will you please keep us updated? This is such an important election. I know it must be close because Fox news is already screaming about voter fraud.

  6. There seems to be some kind of funny business going on with the recall vote.

  7. A La Bastille!
