THE WISCONSIN RECALL PRIMARY “WAS A GIANT REPUDIATION OF BIG LABOR. It was a huge smackdown of the union bosses by a Wisconsin that is 86.5% non-union and tired of all the whining. Gov. Scott Walker was the real winner last night… With no reason for Republicans to vote, Gov. Scott Walker darn near got more votes than the four Democrats combined – 626,538 to 665,436.” And that was despite the big temptation to cross over.

ADDED: There were over 900,000 signatures (supposedly valid signatures) on the petition to recall Walker. Why didn’t those people bother to vote yesterday? Do they not really exist, have they changed their minds about wanting a recall, or did the sign the petitions because of real or perceived coercion?
