The Win in Wisconsin—What It Really Means

One of the best analysis on the Walker Wisconsin recall win was penned by Walter Russell Mead at the American Interest today.

Unfortunately for them, the nasty name-calling campaign is only giving their leadership credibility once again a very big black eye. Yet we must have some sympathy for the Democrat devil, for after all, this poor fallen fellow is totally dumbfounded by the titanic turn of political events. The progressive Word might have been made flesh back in that wonder year of 2008 but I don’t think that 2012 will be serving up a Second Coming. Continue reading
