    Congratulations, to the decent, honest, law-abiding, hard-working people of Wisconsin! Tyranny - at least, for the moment - has been blocked. Governor Walker's supporter are akin to the supporters of Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany.

        Did you notice how he defined "the opposite of tyranny" as "tyranny"?

        that was amazing.

      how is "spending less money, and taxing less from the populace" Tyranny?

      ... you just called the opposite of tyranny "tyranny".

      Wow.

      I'm actually at a loss here.

      This is amazing. Orwell called it! 1984!

        Spending less money isn't tyranny. The objection is to the nullification of the right to organize and bargain collectively which citizens of Wisconsin have enjoyed for the past 80 years or so and which has been a key national policy which has enabled the United States to adapt to in industrial society without revolution.

    Yeah--you are dealing with the most unscrupulous people on earth...the bagger cult of money and suppression.
    What's throwing a few elections? You DO remember 2000 and 2004?
    It's nothing new.
    Freedom!yay, rah rah

      I caught you again:

      How is the Wisconsin group "unscrupulous"? Sure, Wisconsin is going to keep paying for things, but the money that is being used to pay for it is coming from theft!

      Caught you again! I'll look forward to pointing out that the very things you insist are good are actually evil.

        Evan, for the benefit of those unfamiliar with the fantasy of pure libertarianism, please list the top three  countries who only collect voluntary taxes and explain how optional support of government works.

        At the end of the Declaration of Independence, just above the signatures,   and I quote, "pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunesand our sacred Honor. " Fifty-six patriots signed knowing the literal truth of the promise. Each of them would have been hanged if independence was not won.   

        Those teabaggers unwilling to part with the their fair portion of the fortune which the system of democracy lets them build are not patriots and are without honor.

            Now Doug,
            Are you deliberately changing the subject again (classic liberal trick).
            You know as well as I do that the Declaration of Independence is just a piece of paper!!!
            Nobody cares what is written there.
            I mean, yeah, it helped us get out from under England and all, but after that... who cares??

            As any self-respecting TeaBagger will tell you, if it's not in the CONSTITUTION it's not worth crap.
            The Constitution is the one and only defining creed of government.
            Get with the program, Doug!
            May I suggest an easy way to bone up?
            Tune in to Mr. Glenn Beck on Fox News.
            Oh wait! Sorry... he's not there.
            Hmmmm.
            Well, I'm sure you can find everything you need to know at any number of Tea Party Express websites lol lol

    Interesting (but again odd) that the main news page of the Milwaukee paper does not talk at all about what occurred in Waukesha County. You have to go to the Waukesha County tab to read about the "found" votes for Prosser.

      My buddy Evan complains about money printed out of thin air.

      What about votes create from thin air?

      There will be a recount and I expect the clerk has a pardon from the governor lined up.

    Also from the jsonline...
    Not for anything, but, is it typical for COUNTY CLERKS to hold PRESS CONFERENCES like Ms. Nickolaus did? Before even notifying her superior of her mistakes? Tell me that's not ... weird.

    Madison -- The state's top elections official said Friday he is sending state staff to examine results in Waukesha County, where thousands of untallied votes were revealed Thursday affecting the tight Supreme Court race.

    "Because of the attention on vote totals from Brookfield, I am dispatching G.A.B. staff to Waukesha County today to review the business processes and verify the reported results in the election for Supreme Court justice," Kevin Kennedy, director of the state Government Accountability Board, said in a statement. "I have been in close contact with Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus since her news conference on Thursday, and have directed her to make the official returns from the polling places available for public inspection. These documents are public records. I believe she is now taking steps to ensure transparency and public confidence in the official results."

    On Thursday, Nickolaus said that she failed to save on her computer and then report 14,315 votes in the City of Brookfield, omitting them entirely in an unofficial total she released after Tuesday’s election. With other smaller errors in Waukesha County, that meant incumbent Supreme Court Justice David Prosser gained 7,582 votes over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg, leaving the sitting justice significantly ahead for now amid ongoing official counting.

    At a later news conference, Kennedy said that Kloppenburg's campaign would be allowed to look at the figures used to arrive at the official county totals.

    Kennedy said that state officials would not be checking the ballots from Brookfield or the rest of the county before any possible recount. To do that would require the Accountability Board to go to court and Kennedy said that he didn't believe that was warranted as of now.

    The ballots remain in the custody of Nickolaus in bags that were closed with numbered seals on election night by poll workers, Kennedy said.

    Kennedy said that he believed Nickolaus, who discovered her error on Wednesday, should have informed him sooner than she did on Thursday shortly before announcing the mistake at a press conference.

    "I would expect as soon as you know you've made a mistake you would disclose it," Kennedy said.
