My home state just elected the governor they already elected. You probably heard about that. It turns out that Scott Walker is one of my favorite politicians, and I think he’s doing an amazing job putting his state back in the black.
It’s actually pretty hard for a reasonable voter to argue with results like Walker is getting. When you really turn a state around and put its economy on a good path, keep all its budgets balanced, it’s pretty cool.
Walker’s victory is for sure a victory for the right, but it’s not perhaps a widespread defeat for the left as it is a defeat for Labor. Maybe all of the left thinks the labor unions’ dream is actually possible, but I hope not. Way too good to be true.
