Wisconsin Gov Walker thread

So do you think he will lose the recall election?  From the different news articles I've read it at least seems like voter turn out for the state is at a all time high.  Maybe that will be a good thing and walker will be defeated. For those of you that want to watch live updates, at around 8PM CST http://elections.huffingtonpost.com/2012/wisconsin-recall-results will be doing it.  Go Tom Barrett!

Way I figure, Walker will lose, it'll be relatively close, he'll demand a recount, and then they'll mysteriously find votes that someone somehow missed.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

Oh they were trying to pull dirty tricks to make sure people didn't vote earlier:

Milwaukee just ran out of voter registration forms.

Well, I cast my vote about three and a half hours ago. I personally don’t have the stomach for watching results as they come in, so I will be waiting until tomorrow for any of that.

It's still too fucking early to call, especially since exit polls listed it as a dead heat.

Currently at 54%/46%, Walker in the lead. Milwaukee still hasn't reported yet.

RIP Wisconsin. It was nice knowing you.
Her3tik, you have groupies.

There are a number of ways, though my favourite is simply to take them by surprise. They're just walking down the street, minding their own business when suddenly, WHACK! Penis to the face.

We can actually blame the announcement for influencing votes, too...

Since there were people still in line to vote when that announcement came through.  not all the polls had closed yet.  And you can bet some people left because "Oh, well, they announced it, so there's no point in me voting"

Would it be fair to accuse Walker and his supporters of shenanigans yet?
History is full of maniacs, my friend, men and women of intelect, highly perceptive individuals, who's brilliant minds know neither restraint nor taboo. Such notions are the devils we must slay for the edification of pony-kind. Even if said edification means violating the rules of decency, society, and rightousness itself.

With all the stupid people, I'm pretty sure he honestly won.

MY EXACT THOUGHTS.

Also down another percent. I would hope this makes him more moderate. But it won't.
