In fact, Robin Hood extracted revenge on Tuesday, although the thought probably hasn’t occurred to Dems or Republicans.

Has a state race commanded so much attention as the Wisconsin recall race? Senate seats and the Lt. Governor position were in play, but the biggie will go down in the history books as Gov. Scott Walker’s trial by political fire.
The trial isn't over, of course. That was obvious when messages started rolling in from the Left.
As Wisconsinites head to the polls to return or remove Gov. Scott Walker from office, ads and messaging from Democrats attack the governor for limiting collective bargaining by some public employees. I’ve often said it’s understandable why cops and firefighters need representation. What I do not see as understandable is why the clerk at the tax office needs collective bargaining rights.
Have you ever held a government job? I’ve had two.
All eyes are on Wisconsin as voters in that state head to the polls to pick candidates in an election centered on the recall of Gov. Scott Walker. Walker hadn’t even served a year before partisan Dems aided by out-of-state interests began to push the recall.
Now the Dept. of Justice is beating political war drums, declaring in a public announcement that DOJ will monitor elections in some counties.
That begs questions. Who will monitor DOJ? Will Democrats try to pull a Franken after Tuesday’s votes are tallied?
Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett may hope the third time is the charm. Barrett has already failed in two races for Wisconsin governor. Now he’ll face the same GOP candidate he faced in 2010, current Gov. Scott Walker.
Barrett also lost a primary bid for governor against a fellow Democrat in 2002.
Barrett won the Democrat primary on Tuesday with a lot of help from his stronghold in Milwaukee.
Walker has been under fire since he attempted to do something about the budget shortfall he “inherited” as Dems are wont to say, from a two-term Democrat. MSNBC online news cited an “immediate budget shortfall of $137 million, projected to grow to $3.6 billion by mid-2013.”
Is there a federal war on Republican governors? South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is the latest targeted by the U.S. Dept. of Justice.
The sole source for allegations that have spread like fleas on a barnyard dog is a South Carolina blog written by a guy who worked for the online news site of a Columbia TV station.
Conservative media site Red State reported conservatives in Wisconsin are asking for help. Threats of recall elections are being made by labor activists who disagree with financial reform of pensions and perks for state and local workers.
