The Journal Sentinel's backtracking is complete. In today's editorial they heap shame on Republican efforts to "save the house by burning it down". The editorial board finally admits these efforts are extreme. And yet, they have the audacity to say Senate Democrats should not have fled the state; that their move set a precedent for similar actions by future Republicans.
Two things: If the Democrats had not left, the JS would not have needed to backtrack, looking foolish while doing so.
And, I somehow doubt there will ever be an issue appoaching the severity and extremism of the calculated moves by the current herd of right-wingers which would cause future conservatives to scatter. What? They're going to get huffy if the wealthy are asked to pay a bit more to help the state? Let's see those hordes of wealthy people come crashing down on the Capital. Both the Repugs and their rich constituency would be laughing stocks.
