Even more from the political geniuses, because you really wanted to hear it. Here’s everything you didn’t know about reality after the Wisconsin recall. A little something where lying, masked, prances absurdly as knowledge.

What Wisconsin Means
Reality was on the side of the governor.
By Charles Krauthammer | National Review
But first we interrupt, to dispense with trivia or Chuckle-pretensions. President Obama can’t win anything ever again. Why? Because? The recall was a loser. So his public life is over, kaput. Goodbye, the good man I voted for. It’s a simple but powerful fact, like nenny nenny hee or BOOYAH. The corollary: If Barrett had somehow won, Republicans would have tarred and feathered the Romney campaign. No one wants to participate in the embarrassment of Obambi winning all 50 states. What a lucky thing Romney will be dispensing the acrid humiliation forever, from now on.
Also: Labor unions are dead.
Tuesday, June 5, 2012, will be remembered as the beginning of the long decline of the public-sector union. It will follow, and parallel, the shrinking of private-sector unions, now down to less than 7 percent of American workers.
Au revoir, bullies. Though they’re a tiny fraction of the voters, they dictate their politics to millions. The Nazi Bluecollars tried to determine the outcome of the 2010 election, but they failed. Ha ha. Then they failed to secure the recall, and a thunderclap rang out and the unions died. Right? Would I be lying?
The abject failure of the unions to recall Wisconsin governor Scott Walker — the first such failure in U.S. history — marks the Icarus moment of government-union power. Wax wings melted, there’s nowhere to go but down.
Then they all flew to the sun, and they got there because frankly they know how things work. It’s Hebris I tell you. Much respect thanks humble narrator, Charles Emerson Krauthammer the Eleventy.
