Hey, it’s Recall Day

I’ve been so busy the last few weeks worrying about the Starks, that the recall bid on Governor Joffrey Walker in Wisconsin snuck up on me — does that make this the Battle of Whitewater?  (Bad nerd jokes, I know — but look at the time!)

The Wisconsin recall elections are being called an “epic battle,” a “civil war” and even an “un-civil war.”

Oh no!

As usual the White House has pretty much stayed out of this battle to much consternation and it is expected to be close.

So here’s your chance Wisconsinites to vote for or against Scott Walker before the Grand Jury does.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
