Badger State showdown

Now that I have your attention...

Good news from Wisconsin! Well, qualified good news. It's closer than I would have liked, and could potentially be reversed. But Kloppenburg's victory shows that a real nerve has been touched. And that voters angry at Walker's anti-labor ambush aren't so easily distracted by wacky special-interest hijinx.

Break out the mac and cheese.

It would be excellent news if a left wing progressive backlash broke out everywhere.

I'll take what I can get. Protest and resistance haven't quite caught up to the post-royalist, post-imperial world. But they're getting there.
