What the GOP in Wisconsin are tryng to do is very discouraging, indeed - and I guess the only encouraging bit comes from CNN coverage:
The fight over the bill appears far from over. It still must clear the Wisconsin Senate, a step which is likely to prove far more contentious.
Fourteen Democratic Senators have fled to neighboring Illinois to prevent a quorum from voting on the issue and they remained absent early Friday.
ETA: If worse comes to worse, maybe a recall campaign for Walker will happen.
