As a conservative, I'm afraid i must say: "When we have lost ZZ Top, we've lost America".

When I see Ann Althouse use words like "democrap", it's obvious to me that the protestors have done a great job of alienating at least part of the thinking middle.

This coffee tastes like shit.

What a mistake it was to plant the state capitol and the flagship state university in the same city of Madison.

This appears to give the radicals at the university far too much power to shape the state agenda.

In contrast, the University of Illinois is located in Champaign-Urbana and the state capitol is in Springfield. The radicals can demonstrate and bitch all they want in Champaign with little effect on what goes on in Springfield.

The result in Wisconsin seems to be a dramatic overstatement of the opinions of the university radicals and a dramatic understatement of the normal folks out in the towns and cities.

I do a lot of work in France and you may remember the big uproar when French workers (some) were asked to retire at normal (60+) ages. With all the demonstrations, marches etc. it looked a lot like madison and people were talking like Sarkozy was on the way out. Not so a few months later. People are wising up even in France about the reality of economics. And there the workers in question were government or state-owned company employees (EdF, GdF, SNCF etc.) not people in the medium and small company sectors.

Also the demonstrators overplayed their hand by inconveniencing the public.

The alternative was higher taxes which were rejected by the French, same as in Wisconsin. This too will pass

I'm not sure I'd use Illinois as a model of political sanity.

Touche!

I would never suggest Illinois as a model of political sanity.

It's getting monotonous but the protests are anti-democracy. They want their money, soft jobs, and lavish pensions. Democratic process be damned. No surprise to see so many fighting over money, but how are the majority of Wisconsinites going to vote in the next election? I have no predictions, just a lot of curiosity.

He has democracy if we're talking mob rule, but not much sense, apparently.

No cow costume is complete without a tail and an utter.

Which reminds me of a Howard Crabtree costume of a pig, I think. The tits were baby-bottle nipples sewn into the fabric lined up the front like a double row of buttons. That alone had the audience in hysterics. The actor addresses the audience hand akimbo, "I've got my dignity ya know!"

I didn't know the ZZ Top guys were Democrats!
