Tom Barrett is smart. The rest of the Dems? Meh.
Short-lived plans by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin to hold a unity rally in Madison Wednesday, the day after the recall election primary, have been replaced with a plan to launch a get out the vote effort.
With the historic recall of Gov. Scott Walker set for June 5, party officials say the best use of time and resources is to ask volunteers and supporters across the state to make phone calls, knock on doors and “do everything within their power to generate the turnout” needed to win the election.
The public employee unions have nowhere to go in this race, and Barrett being seen with them only hurts him among the seven people in Wisconsin who are still too clueless as to be undecided in this race. (And to digress briefly, what likely voter in Wisconsin could possibly be undecided after living through the last 18 months? Seriously, who the hell are you, undecided voter?)
By this time tomorrow night, I suspect the returns will show that Wisconsin Democrats are already plenty united. The public employee unions will once again have bet big and lost big. And Tom Barrett's supposed to show at a rally the next day to make the losers feel better about losing yet again?
Enough with the political narcissism, AFSCME toadies. Get over yourselves. Nobody cares.
