Will the Wisconsin Union Protests Stay Peaceful?

Let me start by saying that I certainly hope that they do. I have a very, very bad feeling about today, though. The focus today is on the pro Scott Walker rally, but attention really should be turning to the union protesters that have poured in from out of state. The pro Walker rallies have experience in peaceful rallies via their experiences with the Tea Party and other tax payer rallies. The union outsiders are the wild card, as outsiders in tense situations like this tend to be. If they mind their p's & q's, today will be peaceful. But if they came to stir the pot, today could be a scary, scary day in Madison.

It's a good thing you didn't go 'cause we all know how Jib gets after a couple of Leinies!

It would have been a crap shoot, Steve. They would have either gotten Jib Hogan or nostalgic Jib, who would have been reminiscing on how we were all friends just weeks ago when the Packers won the Super Bowl :). Although it would have been amusing to watch me on the steps of the Capitol doing the Hogan ear thing.
