RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:
– The narrowness of the Wisconsin Supreme Court election caught many conservatives off guard who'd expected a blowout for the liberal, union backed candidate. Justice Prosser was underfunded and understaffed and his campaign suggests unions will not be as successful with recall efforts as originally thought.
– A shutdown looms. The Debt Commission members and others are pointing out that, like it or not, Paul Ryan's budget proposal is far more substantive than the Democrats'.
– Democrats are already out viciously attacking Paul Ryan's budget, accusing him of starving old people and the poor. The talking points never change.
