"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Wisconsin Supreme Court Update

The recount demanded by liberal loser Joanne Kloppenburg in the Wisconsin Supreme Court is now over, and conservative justice David Prosser maintained his 7,000+ lead, as expected, winning reelection.   Now, also as expected, Kloppenburg will likely bring a court action to challenge the election results.   Can she win?   Not if she gets a real judge.   But, then again, she will likely bring the action in Dane County (liberal Madison), where you never know what happens.  

So what's the real goal?   Delay.... delay Prosser getting seated (normally his term would start August 1st), so that a divided Supreme Court, 3-3, will not be able to decide on Scott Walker's budget reform bill, leaving whatever a lower Court of Appeals decides to stand.   Second goal:  to delegitimize any decisions Prosser makes going forward that hurt the Left.    Third goal, and maybe the most important:  keep the issue alive so the Wisconsin Dems and their union cronies can keep raising money.   

Kloppenburg's fast becoming the Wicked Witch of the West for Wisconsin conservatives:
