A Wisconsin civility update

If anything untoward were to happen to Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, any of his friends or family or any of the Wisconsin GOP lawmakers and any of their friends or family, we will know exactly who to blame.

TIME Headline:

Wisconsin's Governor Wins, but Is He Now Dead Man Walker?

The lede:

The Wisconsin State Capitol had taken on an eerie quiet by late Friday. Gone were the throngs of protesters who had occupied its marble floors like it were a summer campground. The midnight honking of cars circling the white building had ceased. The chalk outlines around fake dead bodies etched with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's name remained in dismembered parts, not yet completely washed away by hoses.

We wonder if the school children dragged to the state capitol to um, protest saw any of those chalk outlines? A teachable moment indeed!

We're curious if the lack of vigor in the childrens' chanting has anything to do with the fact they have no earthly clue as to why they're there except that their teachers told them Scott Walker was a bad person and quite possibly a dead man walking.

They do get it going, though, if only to get that nag in the red beanie to shut the hell up.

what i am sure these kids will remember more is having to stay an extra twenty minutes at school because of this

Maybe they were taken out of school for this "field trip" which I would've been totally down with.
