Republicans Maintain Majority in Senate Despite Recall
related link: 4 of 6 Republicans hold their seats--2 more Dems face recall next week.

The outcome was seen as a victory for Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican whose move to curtail collective bargaining rights for public workers this year set off a firestorm of protests, then counterprotests and finally a summer of unprecedented recall efforts.
Although two of the Republicans Senators Dan Kapanke of La Crosse and Randy Hopper of Fond du Lac were removed by Democratic challengers on Tuesday before the ends of their terms in office, Republicans still hold a majority now 17 to 16 over Democrats in the Senate. Until Tuesday, Republicans had dominated with a 19 to 14 majority, but with six recall elections in a single day, the damage for Republicans could have been far worse, and Democrats and some national labor groups had hoped it would be.

President Barry Failure, "Special Ed" Schultz and the rest of the reprobates at PMSNBC, and the knuckle-dragging tard-lib union-goon thugs in Wisconsin are eating a big thick shit sandwich after last nights massive defeat.

Stupid fucks.

The lunatic left wing-nut idiot-libs failed in their desperate quest to overcome the Repubs in Wisconsin. Only the brain-dead and criminally-insane voted Democrat. This is because...

Democrat = failure + mentally-ill
