Which Side Are You On?
One of the Crying Shames of the recent rallies in support of the Wisconsin public employees and their collective bargaining rights has been the absence of Democratic elected officials from the rallies. Certainly that was the case at the California State Capitol. Where Democratic electeds hold all the state wide offices and nearly 2/3rd of both houses of the legislature. Just saying. Not one of them could bother their pretty, powdered and perfumed selves to show up at either of the Capitol Rallies, despite being invited.
Only goes to show, I guess, which side they're on, in case anyone had any doubts.
And in Wisconsin, it's been noted that the Saintly Progressive, former Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold, has essentially opted out of any direct support for the protests. Having other fish to fry as it were... Sure, Russ, whatever.
