Those police union votes were nice while they lasted, right?

Wis. Republicans bypass absent Dems, strip collective bargaining rights from public workers

Congrats, GOP, you've just created a class war. Which you will probably lose. Why? Because I'm not sure if you've ever noticed, but pretty much every time you attempt to disenfranchise a group of Americans that commit the crime of not being you (the poor, women, gays, people of color, etc), you always lose. Sure, it takes time. But we're patient, because in the end, we always win. I'd of thought you would have learned this by now, being that you are pretty much always on the wrong side of history. But don't worry about it, enjoy it while you can, and try not to think too hard about the fact you have handed over all your populist cred, you know, that thing you ran with to get votes over the past decade, to the Democrats.

Just a couple of favors. First, please don't do that whole "No, we were totally on the side of workers!" shtick 50 years from now like you always do with civil rights. You can't keep up this attempt to revise your own history and claim you were the patriots in the past when you are so set on repeating it as the assholes in the present again and again. Second, no whining in 2012 when you realize, yet again, that when we are paying attention, the country really doesn't want anything to do with your asses. I'm afraid that there are going to be more people then just your Tea Party who show up at the voting booth next time in 2012.
