WI Dem 'drove 80 miles an hour' to try to stop tonight's vote (Update: Protesters swarm WI capitol building)
Bust him for speeding. And for lying.
STATE SEN. LARSON (D-WIS.): I did. I was trying to see if there was something we could do, anything, in order to try and stop this, but it was pretty obvious they didn't want to have anything to do with that. They didn't want the Democrats there. We thought we were talking, we thought we were having good discussions, we thought we were on our way to having a compromise that would preserve workers' rights, remove some of the bad things from this Trojan Horse bill and get something through that the people of Wisconsin could agree with and find a compromise with. That seemed to have been an affront. It seemed to have been a trick again on their part. If they wanted us back, they could have had us back. This was something where they intentionally deceived us.
Sheesh. Larson and company chose to run to shut down the vote, and every single day they chose to stay away to keep the vote from happening. Now that all that has backfired, they're blaming the Republicans. Democrats like him really need to just man up once in a while.
Update: Remember when ObamaCare passed, and Tea Partiers went nuts, stormed the hill, took over the building and handcuffed themselves inside? Yeah, me neither, because the Tea Partiers are civilized and didn't do any of that. Wisconsin's leftist union thugs, not so much.
Meade called back to say, some of the doors are handcuffed shut and some are wide open. "ANYBODY CAN GET IN AND ANYBODY CAN BRING ANYTHING IN. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SECURITY WHATEVER."
If the police are being so lax in their security out of political spite, and someone gets hurt, well I don't want to think about what follows that.
There are rumors that the unions in Wisconsin are going to call a general strike tomorrow -- private sector unions and the government unions. That would be a suicidal move on their part, imho. Their best bet is to get out of that capitol building, challenge the legality of tonight's vote and hope they get a liberal judge. General strikes will provoke Walker to start firing people in the public unions, and really bust up the public unions through legislation. He doesn't strike me as someone who's going to back down from anything, anytime soon.
Update: Michael Moore, noted rich union buster who makes his money decrying capitalism to a stupidly receptive leftist audience, declares war. I'm not usually one for playground insults and taunts, but I'll make an exception in his case.
You want war? Bring it, Lardbutt. You are the biggest talking, good for nothing little piece of Communist filth this country has produced in decades. You suck up to backward brutes and thugs like Castro while you castigate the American engines of the world's economy. You trash this country and our people and belittle our values every chance you get, you cynical black hole of a human being. The worst words I can think of are too good to use to describe you. You are a buffoon, a hypocrite, and really of no use to civilization whatsoever.
