Wisconsin Assembly Stolen

The Republican majority in the Wisconsin Assembly snuck in a seconds long vote on the most important issue before them at 1am this morning. They managed to pass their union killing legislation but gave Democrats around the country campaign fodder for the next decade, if they are wise enough to use it.

Republicans didn't accomplish anything that couldn't have been done with normal legislative decorum. At a time people in Libya are fighting and dying for freedom Republicans acted in a way that can only make Moammar Gadhafi jealous.

If they think acting like thieves in the night will encourage the Democratic state senators hiding out of state to return the Republicans are fools. The foul stench of this will spread across the state and offend all but the most radical Tea Party Republicans.

I hope you're right. But, underestimating the complacency of the majority of americans is never wise. The repubs are doing their best destroy the middle class and steer this country into a modern day version of serfs and lords. And, an amazing number of people are embracing this plan without understanding they are destined to be the peasants in that conservative scenario.
