Wisconsin: Is This What Democracy Looks Like?:

You gotta love that picture. It's got Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Barret on line in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, waiting with what appear to be average people (or clever working class-looking plants) to vote in the recall election of Governor Scott "Inbred Eyes" Walker.

The question in the title of this post is simple and infuriating: If Scott Walker wins, what it will show is that democracy can be bought. And while we idealize our political system as being the image above, a Walker victory will demonstrate, quite clearly, that it is something perversely different.
