ANN ALTHOUSE: Protesters at the Wisconsin Capitol — midday today — dealing with the fact that, at long last, they’ve been locked out. The Althouse-and-Meade team has clearly provided the best reporting out of Madison.

UPDATE: From the comments:

Ironic to see that lady rambling on about her mentally ill brother who depends on social services.

The demonstration she’s at is all about protecting union pay and benefits at the expense of other items in the state’s budget. Especially social services.

The more the unions get, the less is left over for social services. It’s pretty much a zero-sum game at this point. The state is broke and someone’s going to get less money. The only question is who.

Indeed.
