The whole Walker thing gave the nation the impression of electile dysfunction so it's good to see that performance is back to normal!

Unfair. Wisconsin has more practice.

Now Ryan just has to keep pushing the notion that math is hard (again).

Two worst? Mississippi and Washington, DC.

Wisconsin has the nation's oldest same-day voter registration law. Hard to see how that won't be smashed and broken along with everything else.

Enthusiasm boosts performance.

Political enthusiasm. Back off, Wisconsin.

Honestly, this never happened before. Can we just cuddle?

Yet, they elected Obama.

WI is sitting pretty right now, idiot Quinn wants to raise the minimum wage to $10.

Aren't most union contracts tied to the minimum wage?

A backdoor raise when the state can least afford it. RE is flat, worst state in the union in pension funding....

OTOH, Walker wants to dip into those funds, all that money is just beckoning him, think Congress on a small scale......

How did Racine score? Especially the wards canvassed by Voces de la Frontera.

Big Mike said...

Wisconsin performs particularly well in turnout.

Wait a second? Aren't there wards in Chicago that report 110% turnout?

you'll notice, I am sure, that the highest ones are midwestern states.

As you point out, Wisconsin has always been an innovator in election rules. When something doesn't work, (or is subject to fraud, like same-day registration and no voter ID) we change it to improve the process and hopefully protect voting legitimacy.

Yes, all those people bused in from Chicago were just commuters coming home to vote, right?

Elections as performance art.
