I ignored Xmas this year, but Xmas did not ignore me. I got this gift reminding me of WHO WE ARE.

I had the worst Xmas in 65 years, but sent this to my progressive group today.

Good Afternoon all, I ignored Xmas this year and refused to watch any of the themed movies on tv. So I was going thru old tapes and oh my god, put one in and started crying. It was the night our 14 ran to IL. Ed Schultz had them on and did the whole show about WI. Shell shocked, each one spoke. Julie sitting there in her maroon sweater with the belly, 7 months pregnant with darling Lily, etc... the shock and disgust was thundering. Just thundering. Disbelief. Kind of how where we are now. Just brings home how it all went down and how we still held out hope, fought HARD and what did it get us. But the bravery of our state and lawmakers made me just bawl. It was hideous and raw but beautiful at the same time. DEMS are so good, how do we show that tape to our whole state.....EVERY DAMN DAY.

To think that the Rs used this in their mailers to beat Julie is unbelievable. How she RAN from the state.

And the fact that MS RNC still had ethics and did stories like this. Ed covered the WI story for months each day and broadcast from Madison. Then they dumped him. Truth is gone now. If we even have any media left, it will be all fluff.

I ignored Xmas this year, but Xmas did not ignore me. I got this gift reminding me of WHO WE ARE.

1. I too live in Wisconsin and am incredibly proud of the democratic legislators whom went to

Illinois to try and save our state. It infuriated the repunks like nothing before. It was a legislative rebellion that Thomas Jefferson would have been proud of. We need to see much much more of this visceral and well thought out, planned, reaction to the right wing demagogues. They absolutely melt down when these kind of actions draw attention to their behavior.
