On the issue of the Wisconsin Senate Republicans reassigning staffers to Republicans:
The Republican Majority Leader says they’re not really reassigning them so much as giving each staffer a point of contact in the building if any problems come up.
When we asked Sen. Chris Larson, one of the runaway Dems about that, he told us: “I would be very interested in letting Sen. Fitzgerald know about a new technology called the cellular telephone. I thought he was aware of it. What it does, is it gives a senator the ability to keep in touch with his staff when he is not in that building. I would think he would know, this because most senators are not in the building on Mondays and Fridays, or days when we’re not in session.”
*snicker* *snort* I’m thinking Theatre of the Absurd here.
