Some liberal, E.D. Kain, over at Forbes has posed the question of whether the public union fight in Wisconsin will be the GOP Waterloo.
And not just Wisconsin, but also Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Arizona, Florida, and the rest of the over-reaching state Republicans. Governors like Scott Walker, Rick Scott, and Jan Brewer are riding on the coattails of the Tea Party, but they've become blind to the dangers of their radical policies.
First of all, there isn't a Waterloo without a Napoleon to lead us there. I know there are a lot of mental midgets on the left, but we need a physical one, so liberals would need to loan us Robert Reich, George Stephanopolus.
Second we need to rewrite the rules of math to ensure that even though self-described conservatives outnumber liberals by 2 to 1, they're the ones who live outside the mainstream.
Third, all this talk about Republican Waterloos is wishful thinking, fearmongering, or both....and it's making me disturbingly thirsty for British toilet water
Basically, what we have here is Kain employing what I call the third leg of a liberal argument tripod. There's name calling, and then there's moral equivocation. Finally, what we're seeing here is the appearance of isolation.
Liberals try to make anyone who doesn't believe leftist opinions infallibly shape reality as we all know it feel like they are the only ones who see it that way.
The names Kain dropped are radicals only because he has an argument to win and a public conscious to contaminate.
Jan Brewer signed SB 1070, which pursued the blindingly "radical" policy to eject illegal immigrants from the country. Illegal immigrant supporters swore she would pay at the polls because crossing them was a "dangerous" policy.
Brewer sailed to election 55% to the Democrats 42%....sailed....in the desert.
To be sure, Wisconsin is a much different state. If the GOP is willing to make their case then public unions will find that those of us in the private sector, who have had to take a financial haircut in our own lives over the last few years, will have little sympathy for the simultaneous sense of entitlement and avoidance of sacrifice by these public leeches.
Sure, polls show support for recall of at least 2 GOP senators, but thats because one side is really heated up and the GOP, unlike the Democrats, has been largely absent from the PR fight because they've been to busy NOT being absent from the state capitol...unlike the Democrats.
The Recallistas have forgotten that the GOP wont walk away from the fight once Walker signs the bill. That's when the Koch brothers waltz in on wearing George Soros masks (they're so tired/high they'll think they're seeing double) and riding a big white Trojan horse, amid the throngs of thousands of liberal union hippies who think their special election sugar daddy has arrived.
They'll toss flowers in adulation...pulled from the capitol building gardens. They'll offer up the children they're protesting for in sacrifice. Then, the really randy ones will even toss their dirty, browned, protest-fatigued panties, because liberal billionaire rockstars like "George Soros" deserve nothing less than their absolute best.
That's when the trap door in the horse's ass opens up and money just flows from it like Michael Moore after dining on cheap street fish tacos (extra mayo) shipped in an iceless cooler from Milwaukee.
Anyone who doesn't believe in the power of Koch will be washed away by the flow of their money. It will be glorious, because money in politics wins again...and the protesters finally get bathed in something.
The rub is if the recall elections are funded the same way as last years election only .5% of that money will actually belong to the Koch's, just enough to pay for the construction of the horse. I couldn't tell you where the other 99.5% of it comes from because liberals don't hate those guys enough.
