A campaign by Think Progress to demonize and marginalize the Koch brothers has jumped the shark.

No, I’m not referring to the cretin who posted a comment here calling me a “Koch whore.”

No, I’m not referring to the theft of David Koch’s identity by a liberal blogger.

No, I’m not even referring to the...

Ann Althouse has been observing the revolution in Madison (brought to you by PEU™) and correctly observes that the Wisconsin protesters are losing their grip on reality.

It’s not just the protesters.

The supporters of the Wisconsin protesters in the left-blogosphere also are losing their grip on reality.

I wrote this weekend about the Madison, Wisconsin policeman who appeared in front of the protesters in the Capitol rotunda, while wearing police insignia, and announced that he would side with the protesters against the Governor, and how other policemen announced that they would not obey the legislature if the order...

I have refrained from using that word so far, but the conduct of this mob towards one of Wisconsin’s Republican State Senators who was trying to enter the Capitol building is a reflection of a lawless mentality which has been rampant in Madison, and aided and abetted by some members the

Public Policy Polling (PPP) is a long-time Democratic pollster, which last year became the official pollster for DailyKos.

PPP is prolific in its polling, with new polls released almost daily.  I have linked to PPP’s polls in the past.  PPP has a good knack for finding headline-grabbing topics.

But since the November elections,...

Paul Krugman (emphasis mine):

I don’t watch cable news, or actually any kind of TV news. But I gather that there’s a virtual blackout on the huge demonstrations in Wisconsin, except on Fox, which portrays them as thuggish and violent.

What that makes me think of is January-February 2003, when anyone watching cable...

Despite threats by some police union members to stop the evacuation of the Madison Capitol, and some wishful thinking by supporters of the protesters, the Capitol has in fact been closed as of 4 p.m. (CT) today, with “peaceful resistance” by some protesters.

There’s a reason this blog is called Legal Insurrection.  An insurrection by definition is illegal, but that is exactly what some police union members in Wisconsin have threatened in support of fellow public sector unions.

The video below show a policeman (presumably off-duty but wearing what looks like a police-issue sweater with insignia) who addressed...

Protests in support of Wisconsin public sector unions were organized by MoveOn.org and labor unions today.

Promoters, such as David Dayen at Firedoglake, were predicting a million-person turnout nationwide.  But reports as of 7:00 E.S.T. today make clear that other than in Madison, Wisconsin, the crowds were sparse.

The turnout in Madison was sizable, with estimates...
