Donna Brazile and David Corn, ignoring the massive Big Labor subsidies that fueled the failed recall, blamed “outside money:”
Bill Maher was riding shotgun in the liberal waaaahmbulance:
David Axelrod clung bitterly to exit poll results:
The AFL-CIO swam in denial:
And Barack Obama? Gigglesnort:

Hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites from all walks of life took a stand against the politics of division and against the flood of secret and corporate money spent on behalf of Scott Walker, which amounted to a massive spending gap of more than $31 million to $4 million,” Tripp Wellde, campaign state director, said in a statement.
