Open Thread: WTF Wisconsin

Despite State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald's previous promise that he would not attempt to pass any portions of the "budget-repair bill" without Democrats present, and despite Governor Scott Walker's repeated (and laughable) assertion that the part of the "budget-repair bill" which decimated collective bargaining was strictly about Wisconsin's finances, the Wisconsin GOP just broke the legislation in half and just passed the anti-union portion separately, 4-2.

People outside the Capitol are reportedly chanting, "Shame! Shame!" and people inside the Capitol are crying and shouting "You lied! You lied! You lied to Wisconsin!"
