"Wisconsin Recalls Worked! Walker and Koch Brothers Have Been Defanged!"
Now come on, tell me the truth. You thought the Democratics LOST in Wisconsin on Tuesday night. No no! Au contraire, mon ami! The Democrats actually WON! Yes, I kid you not. I read it at the DUmp, that bastion of astuteness and penetrating analysis. I read it here in this THREAD by DUmmie sabrina 1, "Wisconsin Recalls Worked! Walker and the Koch Brothers Have Been Defanged!"
Freudenschade, baby! Crack open the champagne bottles, my progressive friends! We WON!!! WHEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!
So let us now discover the reason for this hitherto inexplicable euphoria, in Reality-Based Red, while the commentary of your genial DUmmie FUnnies co-host, Charles Henrickson, who sees my Cubs' 19-38 record as actually a net positive, is in the [brackets]:
Wisconsin Recalls Worked!
[What can this be? Good news? The recalls WORKED?? Oh please, tell me more, DUmmie sabrina 1!]
Walker and the Koch Brothers Have Been Defanged!
[Wha--what??? I thought Walker WON?? And the Koch Brothers? You mean those all-powerful big-money guys who are funding everything evil under the sun? DEFANGED?? But HOW???]
Two years ago Walker and his Republican Teabag-controlled State Legislature were completely in charge of Wisconsin's affairs. . . .
[Boo! Hiss! BAD Rethuglicans! BAD Teabaggers! BAD Walker!]
and lost no time in pushing through the Koch Brothers, draconian, anti-working class Agenda.
[The Koch Brothers are the bête noire DU jour, the "black beast" of the day for the DUmmies.]
That is what sparked the historical protests which started the Movement that led to the Recall of Walker.
[But wait! Walker WASN'T recalled! In fact, he won by an even bigger margin than he did two years ago! So how is this good news??]
Imagine if the people of Wisconsin had not stood up to the Koch Machine. . . .
[They would have gotten a Pepsi.]
But now, should Walker try to resume his destruction of Wisconsin's working class, which he surely would have done had they won the State Senate race, newly elected Wisconsin Democratic Senate Leader, Mark Miller has a message for him.
[Wait, so what you're telling me is that the Democratics won control of the State Senate the other day? Is that it? Is that the good news? Am I reading you right? I'm on tippy-toes with anticipation!]
In an email to Bold Progressives thanking all the activists who helped him win the Senate last night. . . .
[Oh really? It's TRUE? We WON the State Senate? Mark Miller is now the Senate MAJORITY Leader? WOW! What a victory! This FAR outshadows winning that lousy governor's race! We won! We won! WHEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!]
this is the promise he made: "Tonight was a tough night for us in Wisconsin. After being outspent 8 to 1 by Scott Walker and the billionaire Koch brothers, we lost the gubernatorial recall."
[Oh, so what! Who cares! Governor, shmovernor! We won the SENATE, baby! Freudenschade, baby!!!!! I'm poppin' the champagne corks!]
"But what the national media is not telling you is: I am the new Democratic Senate Majority Leader after winning an important Senate recall election by just hundreds of votes. Starting tomorrow, Senate Democrats will be a strong check on Scott Walker's power."
[DEFANGED, baby! Defanged! Take that, Walker! Take that, Koch Brothers!]
"Solidarity, Mark Miller, incoming Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader"
[Wisconsin is the Solidairy State!]
The Wisconsin Democrats who stood up to Koch Brothers Puppet Scott Walker, leaving the state and risking being arrested rather than allow him to destroy workers rights more than he had already, deserve the utmost respect. Those are my kind of Democrats.
They did NOT lose, they WON.
[We won we won we won! Oh joy! Oh delight! Oh VICTORY! THANK you, sabrina 1, for finding this bright silver lining in what otherwise seemed like a heavy gray cloud! Now let's hear from your fellow encouraged DUmmies . . .]
grasp every win as precious. . . .
[You're grasping, alright. At straws.]
We won back control of the State Senate. . . .
[What could be bigger than that? Think of it! Defangnation! That's better than . . . better than. . . . well, give me a minute. . . . But hey, we won the State Senate!]
Walker is still there but he's cost his masters a bundle to keep him there and he's still being chased by prosecutors. Chances are very good he'll be indicted before his term is up. . . .
[You mean you haven't heard?? Walker has ALREADY been indicted! Yes, it's true! INDICTED! The reason you haven't heard about it is that the indictment has been sealed. Will be made public, though, within 24 business hours. Freudenschade, baby!]
I'd like to see his ass indicted, myself!
[I think you mean "I'd like to see his ass in DIAPERS," benburch.]
I Have Just Begun To Fight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[I Have Just Begun To Add Exclamation Marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]
I was extremely disappointed, to the point of depression... BUT I'M FEELING MUCH BETTER NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[Zoloft® truly is a wonder drug.]
Someone said that walker was a koch puppet. NOT!! I think he's much more than that... His nose keeps growing... and he has to continually wipe the brown off.
[Calm down, ben.]
I wrote a short piece and tried to post it on CNN, but I couldn't figure out how to send it.
[It's that pesky "Send" thing, isn't it? I know, they make it difficult for us activists, don't they?}
ANOTHER REPUBLICAN VICIOUS CUTTHROAT SLEAZY DIRTY TRICK!
[That's what it is. CNN is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Rethuglican Party. Koch Brothers, no doubt.]
This one was even better than 'Tricky Dicks'.
[ben, stop it!]
This was another one of carl roves vicious, cutthroat, sleazy dealings.
[Rove! I knew it! Figures he'd be in on this.]
They telephoned everyone that signed the 'recall walker' petition and told them that if they had signed the petition, their job was done. They didn't have to vote in Tuesdays election.
[The dastardly dastards! Now don't let them do this to us again! Remember: Be sure to get out there and VOTE on November 7!]
The Democratic Party had to re-call the entire petition list and tell them that the phone call they had received, was just another republican dirty trick.
[We had to do a recall re-call.]
I could go on... but for your sake, I'll get off the soap box. TJ Daniels (poet)
[Great first post, TJ Daniels (poet). You show yourself a true DUmmie. Keep writing those LTTEs. And best of luck in figuring out how to hit "Send"!]
like you, I was also disappointed, I thought at first they had won the Senate also. . . . But then, I read about the Senate and I was so relieved. . . .
[Yes, thank you, sabrina 1, for getting us back to the main point: WE WON THE STATE SENATE! That means EVERYTHING! It's a great day, a new day, for Wisconsin--and for America! The tide is turning! Victory is ours!! Time to cele--]
sadly even this small victory will be short-lived. . . .
[Huh? What? Come again, DUmmie Organism??]
Come November, the Wisconsin senate will likely revert to GOP control, thanks to the redistricting enacted during the previous year's shenanigans.
The district where the recall succeeded on Tuesday will be made more Republican and will be much more difficult to hold. I think the same was true in at least some of the districts in last year's recall. The GOP has gerrymandered it so it will be very difficult for Democrats next time around.
Damn, they sure do think of every way they can to undermine democracy.
The Republicans lost control of the State Senate, they were successfully defeated were they not? Without that control, Walker and his puppet masters, the Koch Brothers, cannot push through their anti-worker agenda. At least until November.
[Yes, another ray of hope from sabrina 1! UNTIL NOVEMBER. Between now and November, the Democrat-controlled State Senate can do EVERYTHING to defeat and defang the Walker-Koch evil agenda! It will be WONDERFUL to see! Between now and November--this is the time to act! Go, Wisconsin legislature! Defang away! Yes, there is still hope! Freudenschade, indeed!!!]
the legislature is not in session and will not be in session until after the next set of elections in November.
[Freudenschade (noun): The premature elation of the DUmmies when they pop the champagne corks too soon and then have to taste DUst in their mouth when things go south. See "Fitzmas."]
I predicted on Tuesday that we would lose but be happy about it. Thanks for verifying to the world that we are losers, who will always be happy about losing. . . . Maybe you need to read it more slowly. Walker. Is. Still. Governor. Of. Wisconsin.
[DUmmie Doctor J, you win today's Kewpie Doll. Con. grat. u. la. tions.]
Did you read the OP?? They did NOT lose. They took control of the State Senate. . . .
[DUmmie sabrina 1 refuses to enter Realville.]
There's a fine line between optimism and delusion. You are displaying the latter. This thread is among the dumbest sh*t I've ever read.
[Sorry, DUmmie NS2012, only one Kewpie Doll per thread. But come back next time. You're sure to find PLENTY of DUmb sh*t!]
