Just wanted to pop in and say:
Interesting that, given the flight of Wisconsin Democrats, we’ve now come to the point where, by comparison, a Community Organizer voting ‘present’ is actually a sign of boldness and leadership. A sliding scale, to be sure. But heck, at least he showed up!

UPDATE (from Dan): wonder if those Washington Democrats so eager to criticize Republicans as obstructionists for trying to block the big-government agenda of the president’s party will use the same label to describe Wisconsin Democrats.
UP-UPDATE (also from Dan): Here’s some background on Wisconsin’s obstructionist Democrats. They’ve left the state, but it appears Tea Party activists are badgering them back to the Badger State to do their jobs.
So, they were standing for the people of Wisconsin by fleeing to Illinois?
UP-UP-UPDATE (also from Dan): I’m liking the Badger State’s chief executive, “Walker to Dems: ‘You Can’t Have Conversations If You’re Not at Work’.”
UP-UP-UP-UPDATE (also from Dan): With this walkout, who, the editors of the Wall Street Journal ask, is “really trying to short-circuit democracy?“
