    This is a democrat liberal and corrupt union boss wet dream. Family against family so the teachers can keept getting free Viagara at the taxpayer expense. Such is life in Obamaland. The nonproducers and corrupters and tax frauds are the media darlings.

    Maybe Newt will pick him to run as his VP, as he and Newt seem to have a lot in common. I wonder if this WI republican senator is from the GOP law firm; Slipper, Pants, and Hopper.

    Apparently he doesn't talk to his wife enough. She would have given him enough reasons to not vote for the bill that removed the ability for the union to neogiate a new contract.
