Why Madison Matters

20 Feb

Roger’s Rules » Watershed Moment in Wisconsin.

Excellent piece by Roger Kimball on the existential character of what is transpiring in Wisconsin and is likely to start occurring in other states in the near future. Here is one of the better paragraphs from the article:

“One of the most disturbing features of the protests in Madison is the involvement of President Obama. He may have dithered, sicklied o’er with the pale cast of political calculation when Egypt exploded,  but when his own political fortunes are at stake he is Mr. Decisiveness. The president of the United Stakes has involved himself personally, declaring that Scott Walker’s bill is an “attack on unions.” And, more ominously, he has involved himself politically, deploying his reelection campaign group, Organizing for America, to help mobilize the public-sector union activists in Madison.”

Read the whole thing. Madison matters very much. Time to start paying attention if you haven’t been already.
