Stacy McCain writes, “Joan Kloppenburg has declared victory in the Wisconsin Supreme Court election – apparently winning by a margin of 204 votes – and thus dies whatever hope there had been for the state’s economic and political future:
It appears that nearly 400,000 people who voted for Walker in November simply stayed home on Tuesday. With their state’s future on the line, they were MIA.
Thus ends — gone! gone forever! – all hope of liberating Wisconsin from the job-killing government-union stranglehold.
In contrast, John Podhoretz is a glass half-full kind of guy, as he watches America’s two political parties achieve an NFL-style parity that Pete Rozelle could have only dreamed of.
But yeah, Wisconsin’s likely still screwed.
