Correct that correction! WashPost evidently gets it wrong about Alberta Darling…

Here’s what the Washington Post reports from Wisconsin, re: Alberta Darling, the 5th Republican now up for recall in that state:

“Wisconsin conservatives added three Democratic state senators and one Republican senator [sic] to the list of lawmakers in line for recall elections over their opposition to or support of Gov. Scott Walker’s law curtailing collective-bargaining rights for public employees.”

(http://www.washingtonpost.com/todays_paper/A%20Section/2011-04-22/A/4/20.0.2601445928_epaper.html)

This news is, to say the least, confusing, as Darling has in fact been one of Walker’s staunchest allies vis-a-vis his union-busting bill, nor, therefore, do “Wisconsin conservatives” have any beef with her:

So I don’t get it.
