National Commentators See Up And Downsides Of Last Tuesday's Recalls

Most progressives in Wisconsin, I'm betting, have felt the differing emotions in analyses of the Aug. 9 recalls expressed here and here.

And even more so as the day proceeds and we wait for the results from Kenosha and upnorth.

E.J. Dionne had a fair and balanced take, here: http://www.truthdig.com/report/print/wisconsin_conservatives_win_liberals_gain_20110810/

"differing emotions"

Very much so, ranging from admitting you lost big time to Baghdad Bob-ish proclamations of victory.

And it will be bitter pill to swallow when you lose a seat or two tonight.

How'd that work out for you, Jimbo?

Jake formerly of the LP said...

Yeah, you were saying Jim? Turning 6 of 9 GOP seats into 5 of 9 Dem seats where Walker won 7 of the 9 districts smells like....WINNING!

It may not be as heated as it felt 5 months ago, but the tide has certainly turned. And it'll be even more so as the TeAA+ bagger brand becomes TOXIC.

And speaking of toxic, where was Walker during these recalls, anyway?
