#rsrh Louisiana unions’ gubernatorial recall petition has a target number of 56.

Background: unions in Louisiana – apparently untroubled by the fact that the Democratic party of that state decided to drink hemlock in the 2011 governor’s race – have launched a recall petition against Bobby Jindal!  Ooh, scary!  On the other hand, as the title notes the unions have a pretty achiveable target number to hit: 56.  That number would be one more than the (reported*) signatures on the last Jindal recall petition.

Via @DLoesch.  I understand that a lot of people are tired of this nonsense because of the way that the Democrats keep wasting taxpayer money in Wisconsin with these recalls, and rightfully so; but this is merely the unions wasting time that could have been spent in digging the Democrats out of their current bayou hole.  …Swamp?  Pond?  The metaphor doesn’t really work; sorry.
