Still Dreaming About Walker Recall (!!)

You have to understand that some people are breathing very rarified air, indeed.  While the State's median income took an awful header over the last 10 years, Protected Class folks think that public-union demands will get sympathy.  Wrong.

Here's an example: of thinking affected by the Big Wish:

“I think the lingering effect of the demonstrations at this point is negligible,” said Charles Cottle, professor emeritus of political science at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. 

“The more serious effects for the (Walker) recall movement is the impact on the economy.  ”If the economy continues to falter, Cottle said, that will strengthen the anti-Walker forces; if it turns around, the point is moot.

The Perfesser's pontification is wishful thinking at best.  It's highly unlikely that the NATIONAL economic problems will result in a STATE recall of a reform-and-renew Governor.   And the public-employee unions are in no position to screech about 'loss of benefits' given the horrific reality faced by Wisconsin residents as a whole.

Adjusted for inflation, median household income in the state declined 14.5% between 1999 and 2010, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates released Thursday.

The rate of decline in Wisconsin dwarfed the national drop of 8.9% in median household income over the same period.

The (D) alternative to Walker will fix

However Dad, I am concerned about the "Recall Walker" yard signs I'm seeing popping up hereabouts. Perhaps we should be meeting fire with fire by counteracting them with "Support Governor Walker" signs...?

Yeah, why don't you get a Support Scooter sign campaign going. That should help create a few jobs.
