JAMES PETHOKOUKIS: Palin In Madison: Veni, Vidi, Vici. “All it took was one powerful, pugnacious and presidential speech — just 15 minutes long — for Palin to again make herself completely relevant to the current political and policy battles raging across America.”

Plus, video from Ann Althouse.

UPDATE: Andrew Breitbart confronts an angry union mob in Wisconsin. Without spilling his coffee.

More from Breitbart at Big Government. “There may be those on the left who really want civil discourse. It’s possible there any some who realize that our national debt is, in fact, out of control. There’s a chance that sane debate is the actual goal of a number of self-proclaimed liberal activists. But I didn’t see any of those people in Madison on Saturday morning. I’m not going to pretend that I did. It was a mob, whipped up by the divider-in-chief and his cronies who live off of union dues and taxpayer funded handouts. And in case any of you in the back row missed it , I repeat – go to hell.”

And, speaking of Wisconsin: Walker plan holds down property taxes, delivers lowest structural deficit in 15 years. “Democrats controlled state politics for decades and left a legacy of overspending and debt, and Republicans were given an opportunity to fix it. It looks as though they’ve succeeded, and that’s very bad news indeed for unions and their Democratic allies.”
