Wisconsin Supreme Court says elections still matter.

Well, apparently elections still matter in Wisconsin.  Apparently a party can’t lose an election, and then stop a vote on a bill brought by the majority which was just voted into the majority by simply leaving town.  Apparently that group can’t then complain about what happens in the State Senate when they were on vacation.  Apparently those that are able to yell the loudest, despite being in the significant minority, can’t take over an entire state.  And finally, apparently one judge can’t overrule an election.

Yesterday, the Wisconsin Supreme Court allowed the legislation regarding public unions to be published, thereby making it the law of the land.  Democracy seems to actually work sometimes.  I’m sure those that yell the loudest aren’t done with their protests, but their likelihood of success is certainly less now than it was two days ago.
