What water, wetland protection is all about
"A little fill here and there may seem to be nothing to become excited about. But one fill, though comparatively inconsequential, may lead to another, and another, and before long a great body may be eaten away until it may no longer exist. Our navigable waters are a precious natural heritage, once gone, they disappear forever," wrote the Wisconsin Supreme Court in its 1960 opinion resolving Hixon v. PSC and buttressing The Public Trust Doctrine, Article IX of the Wisconsin State Constitution.

TWO DEM WINS!
Not a bad day, and both with significant shifts vs. what those districts did in Nov. 2010. And sure, some of that was due to the absurd candidates the GOP ran, but that's all they have left, because the sensible people can't win primaries any more in that party.
Now, let's not get overly excited and figure we got this. We gotta be much like the Brewers and just continue what we're doing, and if we do, and continue to work HARD at exposing this brutal agenda and the damage to local services, I think we'll be OK by Spring 2012.
Scotty's gotta be freaking tonight. An 8-10% swing means he is way done. And that's what a lot of these swings have been. We need to call him out on his "I want to now work together" lie every chance we get.
Two Dem wins! Hooray!!!
Does that mean they now control the senate? errr...
Let's not forget that some of the districts have swung the opposite direction (ie Darling). She did better against Pasch than she did against Wasserman a few years back.
Let's also not forget the Obama effect in 2008, which helped bring Wasserman closer.
Actually Reagan's Fluffer should note that even Darling's district shifted toward the Dems vs. 2010 (not by much, about 1%).
And if he's comparing it to 2008 and figuring THAT'S going to be the voting environment in Walker's recall, well let's just say Gov. Feingold might need to start getting the ruler out on those curtains right now.
Even I'm not going that far (yet). But if the recall results hold for the state, Walker would lose by a good 5-7%.
