    Not that I expect this thread to live long, but holy crap it is getting crazy in Cheesehead country.


    #wiunion is blowing up Twitter with talk of general strikes, pictures of riot gear being brought out in Madison, and rumors that state troopers are blocking the press from the Capitol building. I feel like all that is missing are some Pinkertons and an RKO newsreel. Insane.

    Only question: is Walker doing this to get the '12 presidential nomination, or so he can be a TV and righty circuit darling and make millions like Hunter-Gatherer Barbie?
    'Cause he sure doesn't give a damn about the welfare of his state.

    Can't the protesters just run and hide in Illinois?

    Reports are that state legislators are also being denied entry. Conflicting reports on whether this is both sides or just Democrats.

    Wow, it must be important if high school and middle school students are walking out of class. Leaving class is the LAST thing they'd want to do.
