    Walker is the biggest fool in politics today. All he's doing is helping the Democratic Party raise money for the 2012 election. How stupid can Repups be?

    Is that a rhetorical question???

    b.c., as a native Wisconsinite, I've been watching this news very closely. Yes, the Republicans are going to object to nearly every signature, but what is seldom reported is that the Democrats have already expunged nearly half of the original signatures they received (more than 900,000 of them) as invalid. Yes, that's right, the Democratic party of Wisconsin has already validated the signatures!

    I think this is pretty much a done deal. There will be an election, and Walker will be hard-pressed to find support in the general voting populace.

    This is one of the most epic failures of any Republican governor in recent history. 1 million signatures??? That says the people can't stand you, point blank.

    ..............and if I've heard correctly there are more signatures on that petition than Walker received in votes in the last election! Take heart America ---------- step on the people and expect them to roll over and play dead no more!

    and did you see that pathetic pro walker demonstration of 700 people in the state capital this weekend? it looked more like a funeral for Walker than a rally.

    In the latest report on the showdown in Wisconsin comes this article re. TWELVE MILLION raised by Gov. Walker from mostly out of state Republican interests to buy the, er...fight the recall:

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Recall: Wisconsin United submits 1 million signatures.

    This includes a HALF MILLION dollar donation from a Texas home builder, which begs the question, wtf interests does a Texan contractor have in the campaign of a Wisconsin governor - to ante up HALF a million to save the governor's job?

    Makes you wonder doesn't it?

    Not to worry. After all, It isn't his money anyway... it's ours. The money that we "average joes" pay in taxes while that Texan billionaire gets to write off most of his. How generous of us, eh?

    And how much is union busting and undermining the salaries and collective bargaining rights of Wisconsin public workers worth to the Republican Party??

    TWELVE million, at least...
