Joe Scarborough asked Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker if he was worried about some of the hateful rhetoric aimed at him and his family since he decided to bust the unions in Wisconsin and whether he felt threatened and apparently Walker is not worried about the local residents of Wisconsin. He's only worried about those being bused in. So I guess that means he's afraid of the Koch brothers and their "tea party" and the likes of Andrew Breitbat since those are the only groups I'm aware of being bused into his state.

He also apparently thinks that 60,000 plus non-astroturf protesters equals about 2000 Koch brother sponsored protesters since he made the ridiculous claim that the numbers coming out were equal on both sides. Apparently the state's new governor isn't very good at math, and he was allowed to get away with that by the Morning Joe crew that interviewed him. It's a good thing we've got that "liberal" network looking out for us dirty f**king hippies and our interests, isn't it?

It's not possible to recall Walker until he's served a year in office, but it is possible to recall members of the Wisconsin legislature right now. I hope to hell we see a move towards that happening and a move to get this man recalled next year. I would love to see this over reach result in a Governor Russ Feingold now that the voters in Wisconsin have had a chance to see how Walker has decided to govern and to use his position of power to enrich his friends at the expense of the working class.

Can you help us out?
