Two standout appearances at Chicago’s Tea Party this Monday were familiar faces from Saturday’s Wisconsin event: BigJournalism’s Dana Loesch and Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch.

These two women, working moms who are relatively recent entrants into the political fray, are examples of one of the most underreported stories of the movement: the...

A PPP poll for Daily Kos shows Gov. Scott Walker in a good position:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker leads all of his Democratic challengers in the Wisconsin recall election, per a new Public Policy Polling poll out this afternoon.

Walker, the incumbent governor, has a 5-point lead against Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, 50...

Other conservative moms have been subjected sexist attacks, but few have had to endure the volume of vile epithets raw hate directed at Becky. She has had to put up with the...

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has an editorial today calling on Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus to resign prior to the June 5 recall elections because of her late reporting of votes in the Prosser-Kloppenberg contest last year and in the recent Republican primary.  In neither case was her count inaccurate,...

From reader John:

I’ve been reading and enjoying your blog for a couple of years now. I particularly look forward to the wack job liberals and their off the wall bumper stickers. I live in WI and came across this vehicle which shows the right side can get wild with the stickers too. Of course, they have a far more meaningful message that is coherently delivered. 🙂 Anyway, I particularly love the Santa one in light of the Walker recall mania. It makes about as much sense.

Thanks for the great blog.

Remember, the recall election is June 5.  You can donate at Gov. Walkers website.

Sarah Palin also issued a call to help, As Goes Wisconsin, so Goes America:

I look at the far Left’s assault on Wisconsin and I say, “Are you kidding?” As an outsider … I join millions of Americans watching the political shenanigans in Wisconsin. I am torn between just chuckling at these radical liberal yahoos trying to oust an intelligent administration that is fulfilling its promises, or raising a fist in disgust at people sitting on their thumbs while Governor Walker and Lt. Governor Kleefisch get thrown to the wolves.

I have posted before about the daily anti-Walker ritual chanting in the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison.

The other day a group of visiting student basketball teams stood on the balcony as the anti-Walker Solidarity Singers went through their usual ritual, but then turned the tables by breaking into chants of “We’re with Walker”...

As previously posted, it appears that there were sufficient recall petition signatures submitted to hold recall elections as to Gov. Scott Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, and several Republican state Senators.

One of those state Senators, Pam Galloway,

As I reported the other day, petition signature checkers supporting Gov. Scott Walker are on track to identify between 100,000-200,000 invalid signatures on recall petitions.

That number does not even include duplicate signatures, and we know that duplicates are a

Signature checkers are on track to find between 100,000-200,000 invalid signatures on WI Recall petitions, out of approximately 1 million submitted.  It’s too little to stop the recall election being certified, but is a good indication of massive fraud.

Come on Cheeseheads.  So what if your team isn’t going to the Super Bowl, we need someone to get us out of the funk.  Or at least me.

I’ve long predicted that a Scott Walker win in the recall will be the perfect launch to the presidential campaign against The One.
