By any means necessary
Okay, given this bit from the prank call to Dictator-For-Life Muammar Walker:
Walker: [bragging about how he doesn’t budge]…I would be willing to sit down and talk to him, the assembly Democrat [sic] leader, plus the other two Republican leaders—talk, not negotiate and listen to what they have to say if they will in turn—but I’ll only do it if all 14 of them will come back and sit down in the state assembly…legally, we believe, once they’ve gone into session, they don’t physically have to be there. If they’re actually in session for that day, and they take a recess, the 19 Senate Republicans could then go into action and they’d have quorum…so we’re double checking that. If you heard I was going to talk to them that’s the only reason why. We’d only do it if they came back to the capital with all 14 of them…
And this “accidental” admission by his stooge, Scott Fitzgerald (what is it with all of these Reich-wingers named Scott?):
Should we be at all surprised by this naked abuse of power?
Last night, Wisconsin GOP lawmakers called a surprise conference committee meeting and then rammed an anti-union bill through the state senate. Yet, by forcing the bill through without legally required public notice, the senators may have ensured that the bill will be declared void.
If only we we could recall him now…
INCEDENTALLY: Have I become so cynical about the actions and motivations of Republicans that I put “accidental” in scare quotes in describing Scott Fitzgerald’s admission?
