All eyes are on South Carolina, but today’s a big day politically in Wisconsin. It’s the day opponents of Republican governor Scott Walker must turn in their petitions to recall governor Scott Walker. The goal is 540,000 signatures. If it’s reached, an election will be held in six weeks.

United Wisconsin, the pro-recall website, speaks of Walker’s “tyranny” and of “the need to protect our way of life.” The need is urgent. “Donate $25 or anything you can!”
