I can't help it -- I'm hanging on whatever crumbs of news I can find around the net. Yes, the polls have shown the recall losing, and yes, the MSM have been full of stories writing the effort off as doomed, and yes, the Republicans out-spent us almost ten to one, and yes, the national Democratic party has been AWOL
(a terrible mistake given what an important constituency the unions
are), and yes, the Republicans are up to their usual dirty tricks
-- but by all accounts turn-out is shockingly high
, and that normally favors our side. I can't give up hope that, after all, we can take Walker down.
: A bitterly disappointing result, especially after things looked so hopeful earlier today. The negative fallout will likely include anger toward the national party, which failed to commit resources that could have made a difference. But let this serve as a reminder for November -- no matter how good things may look at any given time, we can't afford complacency
