Milwauke Journal gets it right

Regarding the Democrats in the Wisconsin State Senate leaving the state to avoid a vote on a controversial bill, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said it best:

The Democrats’ childish prank mocks the democratic process.

I applaud their comment, because this is not how government works in this country.  Play games with parlimentary procedure, try to rally support of the public; but at least show up to conduct business.

By the way, MJO does not entirely agree with Governor Walker’s bill.  Yet they expect the same from their government as any reasonable people should.
