This is just dumb. After Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett made his concession speech following his unsuccessful attempt to recall Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker last night, one of his “supporters” approached him and slapped him across the face. Apparently, the woman asked Barrett if she could slap him. Barrett said he would rather hug and as he leaned over to hug her, he got slapped. Taken aback, Barrett walked away moments later.
Unfortunately, this woman was probably not the only one who wanted to slap Barrett for losing last night. But what could he have done? Refused to concede? Walker won fair and square. But a lot of people aren’t going to accept it and a good many of those who wanted to recall Walker aren’t ready to move forward.
BTW, do you see Tea Partiers behaving this way? I didn’t think so.
