Scott Walker is outspending his opponent, Tom Barrett 10-1. The big boys have made their position clear in the recall election, but will Koch whoring trump the will of the people?

It was definitely the flaming heterosexual’s day in the sun, though in the future there will be many more of those hotter than normal sunny days in all sections of the U.S. with our escalating warming of the planet. Santorum is, of course, a vehement climate denier. Speaking in tongues that only the evangelical crowd could understand, he told a Colorado audience the day before the vote that global warming was part of a scientific plot to….”even more greatly control your life.” An estimated 10-15% of the scientific community agrees with him. Besides, how else yuh gonna git them thar Tea Party votes?
