    Isn't there a similar law in Ohio that is before the courts as well?

    Wasn't a good day for Gov. Walker, was it?

    Actually, most of the law was kept in place.

    The story seems to read that way.

    And it sounds like the judge is saying that if the law applied to all unions in the state it wouldn't be unconstitutional.

    Which it won't be. The only reason law enforcement was exempted was so Walker would have a Praetorian guard to slap down the unions. Cynical political ploy that didn't even really work as many cops and firemen opposed him anyway.

    Which is the ultimate goal of the Uberclass conspiracy.

    They want to get rid of all unions in the United States so that each individual corporation-citizen and each individual peon-citizen deal with each other on a perfectly equitable one-to-one basis.

    All this is true, but changing the law will be more difficult. Since it passed, the state Senate is now evenly divided. There's going to be a recall election of Walker and several Senators, and by all accounts they will be close elections. So it would be politically more prudent to accept what's struck down as gone and try to eke out a win and regroup in 2013.

    Question for Sconny SportsJournalists.com: Could the Republicans field a primary candidate to challenge Walker in the recall, however unlikely?

    Why would they?
