The Right gets angry when they see anti-George Bush or anti-Scott Walker posters making Nazi references - - and I have been critical on my blog of people who make that sort of connection - - but today I see this on a Wisconsin Club for Growth web page.
We were mistaken last week to credit Secretary of State Doug LaFollette for refusing to delay publication of the collective bargaining bill. He now says he’ll take the full ten days he’s allowed.

In other words, whoever is elected April 5, Madison’s mayor will be someone who has openly threatened the livelihoods of people in legitimate, taxpaying businesses. Businesses that employ untold thousands of other taxpaying citizens who foot the bill so the thugs who threaten them can have their fat pensions and cheap health care.
