Don’t Fool With Mother Nature

Mother Nature today kicked Governor Walker, Wisconsin, and more importantly the unions from the front pages of newspapers and screens of cable news networks. Drudge is down to 2 links on this story. No one cares much about 14 rogue state senators abdicating their duties and democracy while fleeing to another state. Sure, coverage will continue but that old sports bugaboo, momentum, has been somewhat diverted. And certainly in Wisconsin this will remain a significant story. Tomorrow’s projected big union protests will be covered but many in other states will not be watching. The nationwide interest the unions have been trying to ignite will be taking a big hit from the “Land of the Rising Sun.”
