HEH: Cornstalked: As the 14 Wisconsin Democrats run, meet the numerous Illinois Tea Party activists giving chase. “To say that 14 Wisconsin Democrats are ‘on the lam’ in Illinois is an understatement. Relentlessly hounded by Illinois Tea Party members, they are, truly, on the run.” Plus this: “By capturing the senators on film not answering question — by putting them ‘on the record’ as it were — and then posting it for the world to see, Hale and the other Illinois Tea Partiers are making it difficult for these Wisconsinites to control their message. . . . Alger was gently chastised by another Tea Party coordinator for forgetting one important item: her camera.” Don’t leave home without it.

And the key bit: “Unrelenting public mockery, though, that’s tough to hide from.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.

UPDATE: Two questions that aren’t being asked about Wisconsin.

ANOTHER UPDATE: “They should be thrown out of office as soon as they get back.”
