When Republicans Win, The Voters Have Spoken. When Democrats Win, It's Voter Fraud

Did anyone doubt that this was going to come up?

...John Fund, Wall Street Journal columnist and long time voter fraud fearmongerer, is already crying foul in the election that's become a proxy fight over Gov. Scott Walker's (R) assault on collective bargaining rights -- and increasingly looks like a win for progressives.
On a WSJ webcast this afternoon, Fund speculated that investigators in Dane County -- home to Madison and a big part of the state's left-leaning electorate -- or even the state attorney general will be called in to examine what Fund said were thousands of strange ballots which suggest something amiss in the election.
Of course, Fund makes absolutely no association with the hundreds of thousands of people that have been protesting for weeks in the streets surrounding the Madison Capitol building after Gov. Scott Walker's union busting measures, and the backlash it may have caused in the judicial race especially after it was made known that the Republican incumbent David Prosser supports Walker's agenda.

As for Scott Walker, it appears he's only the Governor of half the people of Wisconsin.
Gov. Scott Walker said this afternoon that the spring election results show there are "two very different worlds in this state."
"You've got a world driven by Madison, and a world driven by everybody else out across the majority of the rest of the state of Wisconsin," Walker said at a press conference in the Capitol.
You hear that, Madison? Eh, you really don't count. Let's see how different those two worlds are once the recalls begin.

Now look, I know this thing is far from over. As of this writing, JoAnne Kloppenberg only has a 204 vote lead out of over 1.5 million votes cast, and a recount is most likely a foregone conclusion. But doesn't it feel good to be on the long side of things for a change?
