As we covered live earlier tonight the Wisconsin recall election was called early and Governor Scott Walker won. This affirmation of fiscal conservatism and rebuke of unions set off a firestorm of reaction on Twitter. Conservatives, naturally, were utterly elated by the win.
HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOD BLESS WISCONSIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If Tom Barrett makes a gracious concession call it will be first gracious thing he's said/done in this entire sorry campaign.

Congrats to Gov Walker. Never doubt that a small group of committed millionaires can stop change. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

Walker won?! Sending out a big fuck you to all the mid/lower class suckers who are driven by ignorance and prejudice to screw us all.

UPDATE: Liberals start deploying the c word in force
I just unfollowed a Devils fan who said Walker's "victory" meant Obama is next. Fascist cunt. I'd rather have a Democratic Ranger fan.
