notevil & evil
Today's recall election in Wisconsin will answer the political question of our age, namely, Can the evil suit guys, by pouring unlimited amounts of anonymously-donated money into a democratic election, handily beat the guys who are, if not good, not evil?
Or will the villains be foiled?
Coverage of this momentous event is voluminous. A Daily Beast writer asks "Is Brown Red or Blue?" and answers himself: "One of Wisconsin’s more purple counties is Brown County, where Green Bay is located," and asserts Mayor Barrett needs to "keep it close" in this purple place in order to have a chance of beating Scott Walker.
We should know by tomorrow if we've got a full-on plutocracy or the possibility of democracy in the dear old homeland.
