Republicans, who now control all three legs of Wisconsin's government, have far more than enough votes to pass Gov. Walker's Budget Repair Bill. The only hold-up, the now minority Demorats lawmakers, in an effort to put the brakes on democracy in Wisconsin, have escaped from the state and gone into hiding so that a vote can't occur. And today, we learn that they have issued a list of demands in a phone call to CNN - in essence, they'll come back when Republicans agree to kill the bill. These poeople are surreal.
This just reminds me so much of the scene from Blazing Saddles where Clevon Little extricates himself from trouble by taking himself hostage and demanding the other side put down their weapons. You know we as a nation are in trouble when our democratic process comes to resemble a Mel Brooks movie.
