Scott Walker Down the Rat Hole with the Palace Guard
by Mary Bottari
The Wisconsin State Capitol has erupted in a torrent of lawlessness this week that school children will be reading about for years. No, I don’t mean rowdy protests resulting in mass arrests. Even though some 300,000 people have visited the capitol in the last two weeks, the crowds have been peaceful and fun; no arrests have been reported. I mean the convulsion of lawlessness that has seized Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and the Republican leadership — a track record that would make Richard Nixon proud.
