So is anything of significance being done to "fix" the BS in Wisconsin beyond angry tweeting?  We will show them at the election is what most people are putting out... this is happening after they showed them.. lol

 

There are protests, and Dems have lawsuits teed up. Not sure what else you can do.

 

I hear Evers openly asked Walker not to sign it. While he is a human sponge saturated with cum, it's worth putting pressure on him because it will be a hard question for him to answer if he ever wants to run for president again.

It seems those that toe the party line see nothing wrong with this either.. apparently the Reps are fighting the good battle to protect them from... *insert label..

Change doesn't happen overnight. The Republicans who kept their seats due to gerrymandering? Evers has the power to veto those crappy maps for the 2020 census.

 

Give it time. Wisconsin Republicans spent time making the 2010s possible for Republican control. They're already shell-shocked that former rising star Scott Walker has been defeated.

Unless the NRCC Chair access secret numbers of which I'm unaware, I need to know what information he's accessing to wave away losses in Virginia, Washington, New Jersey and Alabama last year, many special election losses and huge swings to Dems in ruby red districts, 41 House losses, 7 lost governors' mansions, and 350+ state legislative seats while the unemployment rate is below 4% and most people think the economy is doing well.

 

While correlation =/= causation, there's a whole lot more indicating Trump was an albatross this year.

Here are the top 10 finishers in the MoveOn straw poll:

 

  • Someone else/DK/other: 28.8 percent
  • Beto O’Rourke: 15.6 percent
  • Joe Biden: 14.9 percent
  • Bernie Sanders: 13.1 percent
  • Kamala Harris: 10 percent
  • Elizabeth Warren: 6.4 percent
  • Sherrod Brown: 2.9 percent
  • Amy Klobuchar: 2.8 percent
  • Michael Bloomberg: 2.7 percent
  • Cory Booker: 2.6 percent
Quote

It's another sign of O’Rourke's surprising popularity among national Democrats and a potentially troubling indication for Sanders, whom MoveOn endorsed in the 2016 Democratic primary. That year, 78 percent of MoveOn members voted to back Sanders over Hillary Clinton

O'Rourke is great because he is energizing, but is bad because he's kind of like Obama - inspiring without any specific goals. He could be great if he shifts to a progressive message, but he could also be vague and then get in and get nothing done. Having said that, I would take him over Biden (who is kind of the same on messaging) because Biden is too old.
