Well, there you go, Democrats. You spent tens of millions of dollars of union dues (and goodness knows how much money from liberal sugardaddies), more than you spent during the general election…
…and at the end of the day, for all that, you came up a seat short.
The six-month saga that was Wisconsin’s state Senate recall movement ended Tuesday with Democrats retaining two seats – and Republicans still in possession of a week-old, razor-thin 17-16 majority.
On the fourth election day of the summer, two Democratic incumbents were victorious. Sen. Jim Holperin (D-Conover) beat challenger and tea party activist Kim Simac of Eagle River, and Sen. Bob Wirch (D-Pleasant Prairie) easily topped Republican lawyer Jonathan Steitz.
Congrats, Wisconsin Dems.
Successful Dem incumbent Jim Holperin points out the narcissism behind the Democrats’ motivations (emphasis added):
Holperin said he believes his win and that of Wirch showed that voters in both districts supported the move by the 14 Senate Democrats to leave the state earlier this year to delay a vote on the budget-repair bill that limited collective bargaining for public employees. “Maybe it shows that voters indicated they deserved more time to let their voice be heard on such an important piece of legislation,” he said.
So there you go; when a minority “wants to be heard”, all they need to do is flee; screw the majority, which was “heard” on election day!
Why do liberals hate Democracy?
To paraphrase Joe Biden, “respecting the results of elections is patriotic”.
