nedhepburn:

How could anyone recall Scott Walker? The dude sang “30th Century Man”, “The Seventh Seal,” and “The Old Man’s Back Again,” man. You can’t trust Wisconsinites to get that shit. It’s like asking North Dakota to get into jazz. It’s going to take a while.

This is the only Scott Walker you guys should care about.

If I were the president, I wouldn’t want to be attached to a loss. Tom Barrett is polling down and he doesn’t have an economic development plan and he doesn’t have a budget plan. That does not bode well for his candidacy and it also doesn’t bode well for the president if he comes into Wisconsin and then doesn’t have the potency in order to lift Tom Barrett to a win.
Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch • Suggesting that Obama has stayed out of the Scott Walker recall race because he thinks Tom Barrett’s going to lose. It’s not like Kleefisch doesn’t have a biased opinion here or anything — she’s also facing a recall. But that said, it is a tad conspicuous that Obama has stayed out of the campaign while Bill Clinton has jumped in with both feet. But in the end, we don’t know what’s actually going to happen until tomorrow. We’ll be watching closely.

He took the eye off the ball. Instead of doing what he said he was going to do, which was to create 250,000 jobs, he looked for new way to divide us from each other.
Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett • Discussing his opponent in the Wisconsin recall election, Scott Walker. Barrett, who lost the governor’s race against Walker in 2010, won his primary last night handily, giving Democrats in the state hope he might be formidable the second time around.

An investigation by Pfizer found that some blister packs may contain an inexact count of inert or active ingredient tablets and that the tablets may be out of sequence. As a result of this packaging error, the daily regimen for these oral contraceptives may be incorrect and could leave women without adequate contraception, and at risk for unintended pregnancy.
A statement from Pfizer • Discussing their recall of one million packets of birth control medication. Phrases you don’t want to see in a story about a recall of birth-control medication: “At risk for unintended pregnancy.” The problem, described by the company as a “mechanical and operator visual inspection systems failure on the packaging line,” has reportedly been corrected already. But yeah, that’s kind of a big mistake. source (viafollow)

Maybe it shows that voters indicated they deserved more time to let their voice be heard on such an important piece of legislation.
Wisconsin State Sen. Jim Holperin • Discussing the reasons he felt he and fellow State Sen. Robert Wirch got to keep their seats last night after facing a recall over the controversial anti-union legislation that led to an earlier set of recalls that cost two Republicans their seats. The final tally? Republicans now have a 17-16 majority in the state senate — less than what Democrats wanted, but enough to make Republicans take notice. source (viafollow)

Toyota’s got floormat issues: They just recalled a bunch of cars

  • 2.17
    million
    the number of cars Toyota recalled today for gas-pedal/floormat issues
  • 5.3
    million
    the number of cars previously recalled for similar issues source

» What’s the issue? Simply put, the floormats aren’t fully secure, so that when you’re driving, it can move around and get caught inside the gas pedal mechanism. This issue is unrelated the that acceleration problem Toyota’s cars have infamously had recently.
