February 26th, 2011

…when they chose to start this story about another Union-sponsored protest at the Wisconsin State Capital with this:

It was Angela Aldous, best viagra cialis a 30-year-old nurse from Madison, who drew the loudest cheers. She sought to cast doubt on Walker’s suggestion, made last week, that many people from out of state were joining the large protest crowds in Madison.

“Governor Walker, I’m not faking this Wisconsin accent,” Aldous said. “I was born in Wisconsin. I live in Wisconsin. And I came back early from my ice-fishing trip to tell you, ‘You are not going to crush Wisconsin.’?”

She then led the crowd in a chant: “We are Wisconsin.”

And end it with this:

As he spoke, a long line of teachers from Chicago paraded through the center of the rotunda to wild cheers. Chicago teachers, their signs stated, support Wisconsin workers.
