Yes, I knew it would come to this: that one day you racist, teabagging wingnuts would finally achieve your dream to outlaw the Democratic party, held since the day Abraham Lincoln took Andrew Johnson hostage as vice president, thus setting the Democrat up for impeachment. Why, Dred Scott himself did not suffer the way these good and men and women have suffered, far from their families, unable to sleep, waiting for the inevitable knock at the door. Even singing patriotic ditties such as “If I Had a Hammer,” “Joe Hill,” and “The Banana Boat Song” helps alleviate the Dostoevskian gloom only a little.
And here's a comment in the WSJ by Benjamin Riggs:
It seems that the union supporters in Wisconsin have decided to take to the streets to accomplish what they failed to do within the political system. That’s a reasonable tactic in Tunisia or Egypt, but the last time I looked, Wisconsin already has a democratic system of government, with a system of fair and free elections to ensure that the will of the people was being served. The people have spoken. The unions don’t like the result. What they are doing now is an affront to democracy and to the majority of voters in Wisconsin who they hope to disenfranchise. And what is even more disturbing is that the leader of our country, President Obama, is supporting their actions. Perhaps he believes in democracy only when the results meet his agenda.
