Total Recall Failure?

Concerning that recall vote in Wisconsin, it looks like the Democrats and their public employee union supporters are in big trouble.

James Taranto nails it:
Public-sector collective bargaining is an inherently corrupt process. Unions spend their members' dues to help elect the politicians who sit on the other side of the bargaining table. Thus, the very officeholders who are supposed to be representing the interests of the taxpayer are often beholden to their putative adversaries, whom they assist in looting the public treasury.

I hope the Walker phenomenon continues, so we can reign in some of these public servants to be more representative of the people they serve, in pay and benefits.

What a GOP-lackey you've become Gil. Have you no shame? Your father was a union man.

Shame is when a person hides beyond anonymity with such a post. I'd bet the ranch that as an editorial employee of the Daily Times Mr. Spencer is indeed a member of the paper's professional union. To bring his father into the discussion is beyond the pale. And to make it anonymous makes it worse.
