Oh The Spin, It Is Hilarious!

And a big thank you to the Washington Compost for summarizing the NSDWP talking points about how utterly insignificant the WI recall election is and their numerous excuses why their candidate was really very, very popular but nevertheless, UNFAIRLY, lost to a clearly inferior Walker.

* The Democratic primary: To hear those who worked in the trenches of the recall tell it, the fact that Democrats had a contested primary between Barrett and former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk bears considerable responsibility for Walker’s victory.

Unclean Thinking!™ The Evil Kathleen Falk is to blame! Funnily enough, the “damaging” GOP primaries don’t seem to have hurt Mittens McRomney all that much.

* Money: As of Monday, more than $63 million has been spent on the recall fight with Walker and his conservative allies vastly outspending Barrett and other Democratic-aligned groups.

Walker himself had raised in excess of $30 million for the recall campaign while Barrett collected just under $4 million.

And let’s not talk about the $100 million that the unions spent trying to AxelTurf the vote out for Barrett because… RACIST!

* 2010: There was considerable internal discussion and disagreement between Washington and Wisconsin Democrats (and organized labor) about whether to push for a recall election this summer or wait until 2014 for a chance to unseat Walker. (Washington Democrats broadly favored the latter option, Wisconsin Democrats and labor the former).

As the recall played out, two things became clear: 1) There were almost no one undecided in the race and 2) those few souls who were undecided tended to resist the recall effort on the grounds that Walker had just been elected in 2010.

The sentiment among those undecided voters, according to several Democrats closely monitoring the data, was that while they didn’t love Walker they thought he deserved a full term before passing final judgment on how he was performing.

The voters of Wisconsin really, truly LOVED Barrett and hated Walker with the fury of a thousand suns, but they just didn’t like the recall election!

Of course, had it gone the other way, the Washington Compost would now be trumpeting the victory of people power over entrenched corrupt GOPism and G-d knows what else.

* Milwaukee: As is true in any state that has a single dominant city — in terms of population, profile etc. — there is resentment toward that city from everyone who doesn’t live in it.

Barrett’s ties to Milwaukee, therefore, wound up hurting him far worse than many Democrats expected at the start of the contest.

Wisconsin voters were really all behind getting that evil ScottHitler out of the governor’s mansion, but they just didn’t like that his opponent was from Milwaukee. After all, what does ideology matter if your candidate doesn’t have the right zip code?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!

We’re going to be having so incredibly, indecently much fun watching the Liberal Fascist Media trying to spin that 24-egg omelet off of their fascist little faces!

BWAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Thatisall.

    These morons picked this fight with a completely bogus recall process chocked full of fake names allowed by corrupt judges who also neutralized our Voter ID law by tying it up in legal limbo.

    AND THEY STILL GOT THEIR ASSES SPANKED!!!

    Gunsniper, let’s hope the slumbering giant stays awake at least through November, and hopefully through most, if not all, of 2013. Perhaps if Teh Peepul nag and bitch and threaten to pimp slap their elected representatives enough, all of Ear Leader’s Commie Crap can be reversed, voter intimidation on the part of Eric Holder’s People can be prosecuted, Ogabe and Holder can be turned over to the Mexican government to be prosecuted for their part of Fast and Furious, and so on.
    It would be hilarious as hell to see Jugears and Holder being someones bitches in a Mexican prison. :em05:

    Anybody see the video of Barret getting slapped by that little bitch of a supporter? It’s on The Blaze, and they now have TWO angles of it. Heheheheeeeee!

    Oh the libs and their whinny temper tantrums. So entertaining.

    I normally don’t like Hannity, (because of his interviewing techniques and seeming inability to stay on point…just annoys me) but he comes on before Levin and I end up listening off and on. Today, they were taking calls from unhinged libs who couldn’t articulate their anger very well, just sputtering and accusing without any specifics. Hannity was actually toying with one, Levin-style. For a moment…I was impressed

    Ass. Press posted this interesting tidbit at 7:20 this evening.

    Democrats are trying to save face after almost all the Republicans made short work of their recall challengers Tuesday night.

    Walker handily dispatched Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and Kleefisch easily defeated Mahlon Mitchell. Fitzgerald stopped Fort Atkinson photographer Lori Compas; Republican Sen. Terry Moulton of Chippewa Falls defeated Kristen Dexter of Eau Claire; and Republican Jerry Petrowski of Marathon stopped Donna Seidel of Wausau to win Galloway’s open seat.

    It appeared Wanggaard had the edge on challenger John Lehman in Racine’s 21st Senate District early on, too. But updates on the results slowed to a trickle as the night dragged on and sunrise was approaching by the time the count was completed. The unofficial tally showed Lehman leading Wanggaard by fewer than 800 votes. [HERE WE GO AGAIN.]

    Lehman, a former high school history teacher who held the 21st Senate seat until Wanggard defeated him in 2010, quickly proclaimed he was the winner and his fellow Democrats lined up behind him.

    But Wanggaard (R), a former police investigator, has refused to concede. He said his supporters are pressing him to seek a recount.

    The election was rife with what he termed “voting irregularities,” he said in a statement. He didn’t elaborate, but Fitzgerald said he heard people were still voting at 11 p.m., three hours after polls were supposed to close.

    Racine County Clerk Wendy Christensen didn’t immediately return a message. Reid Magney, a spokesman for the Government Accountability Board, the entity that oversees Wisconsin elections, said he hadn’t heard of any problems at the polls.

    Regardless, Wanggaard said he wants to wait until Racine County has completed its official vote count before making a move, he said.

    “We all know that the best decisions are made when well-rested and after consideration of all the options,” Wanggaard said.

    Wisconsin candidates can request a recount within three business days of county officials completing their final tally if they can articulate a reason for the review.

    Racine County officials have until Friday to receive 529 outstanding absentee ballots, Magney said, and aren’t expected to begin their count until next week.

    Wanggaard would be on the hook to pay for a portion of the recount’s costs. Under state law, candidates requesting a recall in races involving more than 1,000 votes must pay $5 per ward if the margin between the candidates is between half a percent and 2 percent of the vote.

    The margin between Lehman and Wanggaard is 1 percent. According to the GAB, the race involved 137 wards. That means Wanggaard would owe $685.

    Do you reckon any patriots have sent Wanggaard that $685 yet? OH, and the Ass Press admits that even if the Dimwits won stole the election, the “victory” would be largely symbolic, because they’re not in session until January and will just have to fight the battle all over again in November.

    This is a great opportunity for the GOP to find its balls and really got to the mattresses over the Dimwits’ constant election fraud. Bussing in people from out of state, keeping polls open until all hours, I mean, WHEN are we going to kick them in the nutz like they deserve?

    I don’t give a shit who won the election

    Yes you do or you wouldn’t be foaming at the mouth over it. I didn’t hear a peep from anyone when the billion dollar campaign of jugears outspent McCain four to one in 2008.

    — where I DO have a problem is the fact that someone BOUGHT the election.

    I bought one hundred dollars worth between 2011 and now. One of the best hundred dollars I spent.

    Libs want campaign “finance reform”? Fine. Remove all restrictions on American citizens and corporations. No limits. And full disclosure of the contributors identity. Donate as much as you want, to whoever you want. But everybody will know (Deej’s NASCAR sponsor patches if you will.)

    LC Gunsniper growls and barks:

    Almost forgot…

    Me thinks you have it backwards, sir. The union and the dems spent somewhere in the neighborhood of about $3 million.

    Pure nonsense. Barret spent 4 million and the unions backed him up with 21 million. If you want to vent on someone vent on the DNC who wouldn’t spend money on this loser of a moronic recall election. Get pissed at the unions for pursuing this stupid recall election in the first place.

    LC Gunsniper growls and barks:

    Tell me that there isn’t an election being bought. You cannot tell me with a straight face this is what those founding fathers you all love to refer to wanted…

    The recall election wasn’t bought. More people, including myself voted to keep Scott Walker because he is a damn good governor who saved the state from the kind of financial ruin destined to happen to California and Illinois. He had the courage of conviction to do what was right and necessary and didn’t flinch in the face of tremendous pressure from the goonions crime cabal and their Democrat patsies. The voters of Wisconsin recognized this and turned out at the polls in droves and rightly rejected that clown shoe Barrett in no uncertain terms. I, nor any other voter received a check or stipend or even a wad of cash in a brown paper bag for our vote (although I can’t account for the “voters” shipped in from other states by the goonions to throw the election their way.)

    Another important detail is the fact that Kathleen Falk rather than Tom Barrett was the goonion’s choice for Governor so if Barrett’s support was overly thin in your estimation that’s a pretty strong reason why.

    Are you comfortable with the idea that a corporation or a “Super PAC” can spend $100 million to influence the outcome of our elections?

    Well, given that Bambi’s looking to tap into his illegal sources again – yeah, I’ll sleep tonight.

    (EDIT: looks like that link was from 2008. But I have heard that he’s removed the safeguards this year too. If I have time, I’ll try to locate the link. It’s probably on Malicious Malkin’s site.)

    (2nd EDIT: here’s a current link.)

    Romney/Obama — who gives a shit? Walker? Again, unimportant. These are just test puppets.

    Oh, Deej, I could tell you exactly what this is the run-up to, but you just think it’s a fairytale, so I’ll pass.

    Perhaps you don’t understand where I come down on this. I want ALL money out of our elections. If given a choice, I would rather give each candidate a million dollars and six months to make their case to the American people. After six months, we can judge how they were able to effectively spend that money to convince us that they are the person for the job — and we vote on them.

    Radio and television shouldn’t be a problem. They should be required to set aside a certain number of prime time hours each month for those six months for the purpose of showcasing these candidates. After all, We the People own the airwaves and the broadcast companies only lease them on a license.

    Okay, just for the sake of argument (and I do like the argument, don’t get me wrong), let’s just go ahead & implement that system. An extra-extra-large for each candidate. (And what the hell, let’s throw our resident Paultard, Duke Wayne, a bone – let’s give a mil to Dr. Dumbass, too.) Hell – let’s make it two or three million – air time ain’t cheap nowadays.

    What do you think’s gonna happen? Do you honestly believe the candidates won’t find a way around that limitation?

    And what about the parties? And the PACs? (I won’t even mention the super PACs.) They’ll be doing circles around the limitation. Try & stop ’em? Wanna clog up the court system even further? ‘Cause I promise you a flurry of lawsuits if you try & take their First Amendment right away again. Speech, the right to spend one’s money the way one wants, the right to assemble peaceably…shall I go on?

    They love you!

    You love Hitler. Come on, now. Admit it. The American Taliban (the GOP) is the new Nazi Party and you worship them. You want the corporations to rule America because you hate the idea of the people running it. You loved Bush’s illegal wars and you wept when bin Laden was killed because you had such high hopes for him that he would get away with his crime and you still are thankful Hitler took his life like a coward, because you thought what he did during his reign was what the American Taliban/Nazi Party should be doing today!! *SPIT* You also have never liked the idea of the people electing a president. You and your party prefer a king like the Red Coats of yesterday did! *SPIT*

    Sad. When the Nazis take America over, myself and others will say ‘I told you so’ when America ends up being a Mormon Banana Republic!
