A place to discuss music and Mallard Fillmore
Recall target, Sen. Randy Hopper (R-Fond du Lac), talks a good game about family values.
But protesters outside the Hopper house this week in Fond du Lac were met by his wife who reportedly came out and told them: Hopper no longer lives there, but with his 25-year-old mistress in Madison.

What I find not so mildly ironic is the same folks that were critical of Obama's "elections have consequences" quip and rallied to GOP gains last November are now saying the same thing and are far more arrogant than Obama ever was. My hope is that the outrage (and there's a lot of it) lasts through any recalls and the 2012 elections. If the state lasts that long.
Thankfully I live in an area that can't get too much more blue, but that's little consolation when the electeds are essentially powerless. The Republicans don't even *pretend* to care about debate or compromise - they won, you lost, shove it. Their recent behavior in the Assembly and Senate have been disgraceful.

Some states are doing a far better job than others of managing this bill coming due. States such as Florida, Idaho, New York, North Carolina and Wisconsin all entered the current recession with fully funded pensions.

Can anyone explain who has benefitted from the 5 trillion in NEW defecit spending the past 3 years?
