It's looking bad for Republicans in Wisconsin. Really bad. Because when a solidly Republican district falls to a Democrat after Scott Walker has been "carrying out the will of the people" I think it's safe to say the will of the people doesn't look much like Scott Walker and his cronies in the Wisconsin legislature think it does.

Here's the straight scoop, right from the keyboard of Fox News:

Democrat Steve Doyle defeated Republican John Lautz for the Wisconsin District 94 Assembly, flipping a seat held by Republicans for 16 years in a race that focused attention on Republican Gov. Scott Walker's plan to curtail collective bargaining right for most public employees.

With 92 percent of precincts reporting, Doyle won 54 percent to 46 percent, based on unofficial results in Tuesday's special election. The race flips a GOP Assembly seat for the Democrats, who remain in the minority.

This is what it looks like when the will of the people rises up and participates.
