Union Thugs Come Out in Wisconsin

On the heels of Rep. Governor Walker's attempt to rein in out of control spending, Leftist union thugs come out and threaten violence.

I hope our national media will be covering Wisconsin, just a little. In the wake of the Tucson massacre, we heard from a lot of pundits that extremism and violence come from the right. (I again direct you to this page, which remembers some of that punditry.) I have a feeling that, if conservatives had staged a lunatic and thuggish rally like the one the public employees just staged in Wisconsin, it would be huge news all across the country: cover of Time, cover of Newsweek. (Do those magazines still exist?)

This must be the Left's new civility.
