Like this post because (i) I like the implied call to optimism and (ii) your use of Hobbit. After the McCain thing I decided I would call myself a Hobbit proudly. (Obviously McCain never read the books or he would know it is an honor to be a Hobbit).
It comes down to winnebego county. can Hopper hold on?
I’ve never been a fan of Wisconsin but tonight I stand shoulder to shoulder with its citizens!
This will set the tone for 2012!
HOLD THE LINE!
(Reason: Far too many military field exercises with skunks, snakes and mosquitoes)
I did not read that story, but it might be worth reading now...
The Newspaper's webpage is:
This is the best answer to Rush Limbaugh the left has...pretty lame isn’t it?
‘2012 results.....If its a Reagan landslide style killing, itll all be over quickly.’
oh, I pray this will be the case. The thought of another 4 yrs of Mr. Obama is frightening.
Are you listening right now..they cut the arts program ..that is why the GOP needs to go...........per this 1 teacher.
From your lips!
Still no call in the 14th:
State Senate - District 14 - General
August 09, 2011 - 09:56PM CT
Wisconsin - 121 of 126 Precincts Reporting - 96%
Name Party Votes Vote %
Olsen , Luther (i) GOP 24,321 54%
Clark , Fred Dem 20,690 46%
Not my area of knowledge to be honest I’m further south.
GOP seems confident he’ll hold.
wisconsinreport Wisconsin Reporter by SykesCharlie SD 18 finds incumbent Hopper up 51% to 49% with 79 percent of the vote in. Dems really need that race. A GOP win is a recall push back.
Seems quite possible and would be a clear victory for us.
Finally called for Olsen.
Doesn’t look good for Hopper. If the current Winnebago percentages hold out, it spells an 1,800 vote gain for King.
If we get 5 of 6 the 3 Dem recall races next week suddenly get even more interesting...
We take 2 and we have a quorum :)
Hopper ahead with 18 precincts left by 534 votes. Nailbiter there.
Olson was called about 8 minutes ago/Defeat obama FB page ...
Anybody seen anything new from Scott Walker facebook page?
Agreed. If the percentages hold, then Hopper will lose by 274 votes.
