The networks are calling it for Scott Walker right now - they'll also be calling it for Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch any moment now, and at least three of the four state Senate elections. I would like to note for the record that I Told You So; and I would like to repeat something that I once wrote in regard to the folks who opposed FISA, back in the day. I have changed it a little; the original is here.
I would like to offer these words of comfort. When you progressive/liberal/Democratic activists look back on your quest to begin the Wisconsin recall movement, I want you to appreciate the amazing amount of work that you spent on it. You called. You networked. You wrote letters and blog posts. You contributed to opposition groups. You reached out, and found people just like you, and you banded together to fight. You marched, and you stormed the state capital, and you were arrested. And you kept going, and calling, and struggling, and you put your time, your money, and every atom of your being on the line. For some of you, this was your finest moment. You fought for this. You fought so hard for this.
Oddly enough, I didn't do any of that, but I won anyway. That's because you suck, and I don't.
Well, I didn't say that they were words of comfort for you.
PS: Oh, I have to put this up again:
