What Really Happened in WI and Why You Must Care

Listen to this episode: {play}Wisconsin, recall, Walker, Koch, Lisa Graves, Florida, Rick Scott, purge, Sargent Shriver {/play} Play in new window Live video for mobile from Ustream The annual Netroots Nation gathering came at the perfect time this year.  It followed, by two days, the stinging defeat of the recall of Scott Walker as Wisconsin's governor, and gave us the chance to figure out what went wrong and regroup as we head toward November.   The really odd thing is that the exit polls showed solid support for President Obama's re-election, yet many of the same people who support Obama [...]

Recall Revolt

  Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120606_Nicole_Sandler_Show.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   So, what the fuck happened in Wisconsin yesterday? Did big money win the day? Yes, but it's more complicated than that.  People revolted against yet another recall, or so it seems.  Recall exhaustion? That's what the exit polls are saying.  As Jamie Bouie writes (posted by Greg Sargent in WaPo), "On Wisconsin, Conventional Wisdom is Mostly Wrong".  According to exit polls, Walker won 17 percent of Obama supporters in the state, and overall, last night’s electorate favored the president over Mitt Romney by a significant margin, 52 [...]

Democracy in Action

The majority of people in this country think election day is on a Tuesday in November.  But the uneducated, uninformed masses don't understand primaries, recalls and special elections.  On those fronts, today is a biggie! So - we the informed - must work overtime to get out the vote. Today is the day that Wisconsin can send the thieving, scheming, union-busting Scott Walker packing and put Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett into the governor's office to being undoing Walker's damage.  Also at stake are a few State [...]

Wearing a Uniform Makes You a Soldier, Not a Hero

What About Wisconsin?

Early voting is underway. And the Democratic Party is nowhere in sight.  The DNC issued a tepid response to the recent outcry of their lack of monetary support by stating that Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz would head to Wisconsin "by the end of the month" to hold a fundraiser.  From what I hear, they need money, not a visit from Debbie! After attempting to call the DNC offices earlier this week (I got no answer), I sent an email [...]
