"Raging Wisconsin"

So says the National Review. I spent a half hour yesterday listening to Gov. Walker's press conference as reported on CNN, and this went, in my mind, from being merely an interesting story, to the critical story out there.

This budget showdown is becoming the flash point for our whole nation's fiscal predicament. Will the new GOP majority in WI succeed in busting the public sector's collective bargaining rights, and making public sector employees share health and prnsion costs on par with private sector workers?

I'm pretty sure that if they fail--if the local protestors and professional rabble-rousers succeed in cowing the new Governor--this country is basically sunk. It will be the first concrete proof that we're more France than we are olde-time America. Strikes will rule the day, and fiscal reality will continue to be swept under the rug until the lenders stop funneling us currency.

And just like Gov. Walker, trust me, the lenders will be the bad guys.
