Hey, Nice Holes
I didn’t have the idea waiting for the results of the recall in Wisconsin. I wouldn’t have drawn it with the Elephant with the holes and cheese hat. That’s because this recall was engineered by the Democrats.
I don’t like recalls. Yeah, it’s part of the Democratic process, but I don’t think it’s fair. I think it’s cheap. No, I don’t like what Wisconsin’s governor, Scott Walker, has done. But I don’t think we try a different form of impeachment because we don’t like his policies. You can fight him while he’s in office and hope to vote him out in the next election. Who’s to say Republicans can’t do it to Democrats? Wait, they did in California.
I don’t think this has many implications on the presidential election, which is still months away. Wisconsin is going to Obama. Romney doesn’t stand a chance there. It may have implications on how to finance and run attack ads, specifically ones that discourage people from voting, like the Republicans ran in Wisconsin. The largest significance of this election is how it will affect unions in other states. Now Republican governors won’t be as afraid to strip away collective bargaining and make attempts that are basically designed to kill Democrats funding, and nothing to do with budgets.
The most disgusting thing about this election was the money poured into the state, from out of state.
Here’s the rough.
