#rsrh Well, the Democrats lost Joe Klein…

with regard to their petulant, violence-threatening protests over Scott Walker’s collective bargaining reform package:

An election was held in Wisconsin last November. The Republicans won. In a democracy, there are consequences to elections and no one, not even the public employees unions, are exempt from that. There are no guarantees that labor contracts, including contracts governing the most basic rights of unions, can’t be renegotiated, or terminated for that matter. We hold elections to decide those basic parameters. And it seems to me that Governor Scott Walker’s basic requests are modest ones–asking public employees to contribute more to their pension and health care plans, though still far less than most private sector employees do. He is also trying to limit the unions’ abilities to negotiate work rules–and this is crucial when it comes to the more efficient operation of government in a difficult time.

You know, losing Joe Klein? That takes skill. I’m almost impressed.

  1. I think he meant to write that under his “Anonymous” pseudonym, and slipped. A dead fish is probably en route to his door mat as we type…

  2. The thing that irks me in this whole shemozzle is the misuse of the word “rights”. Collective bargaining, for a random example, is not a right – it is a privilege
