Walker wins; Twitter explodes

As we covered live earlier tonight the Wisconsin recall election was called early and Governor Scott Walker won. This affirmation of fiscal conservatism and rebuke of unions set off a firestorm of reaction on Twitter. Conservatives, naturally, were utterly elated by the win.

HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOD BLESS WISCONSIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If Tom Barrett makes a gracious concession call it will be first gracious thing he's said/done in this entire sorry campaign.

cost of a recall win: $30 million. cost of ed schultz's disappointment and whining: priceless.

Congrats to Gov Walker. Never doubt that a small group of committed millionaires can stop change. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

Walker won?! Sending out a big fuck you to all the mid/lower class suckers who are driven by ignorance and prejudice to screw us all.

— Fred Dintenfass (@freddint) June 6, 2012

UPDATE: Liberals start deploying the c word in force

I just unfollowed a Devils fan who said Walker's "victory" meant Obama is next. Fascist cunt. I'd rather have a Democratic Ranger fan.
