#rsrh Tom Barrett’s cops arrest peaceful protester at Clinton’s (sparse?) WI rally.

Gotta love Milwaukee – and Milwaukee’s Democratic mayor Tom Barrett, huh?

No, actually, you’re obliged to love him in public.  Don’t, and they throw you in the hoosegowMore from Buzzfeed:

A lone Scott Walker supporter was arrested at a campaign rally for Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett today, where Bill Clinton also spoke. The man had been arguing with rally attendees since before the rally began, and held a sign that said “Support Scott Walker, Not Union Thugs.”

After the end of Clinton’s speech, the man was taken away by police and taken to the corner of Pere Marquette Park in downtown Milwaukee as the police waited for their car to arrive.

…Anyway, see here for Glenn’s roundup of the incident.  In other news: Barack Obama is not so much avoiding Wisconsin as he is circling it like a tramp hiding from a loose junkyard dog, and for pretty much the same reason (he’s afraid of having his [expletive deleted] chewed off).  It’s a real shame that the President isn’t braver; we might have had a decent public debate this cycle…
