When I posted the article below comparing what national Democrats and their cats’ paws had said about conservatives using incendiary rhetoric and what public union members are doing in Madison, Wisconsin, I didn’t know about a tactic being used by their Wisconsin legislative supporters.
Those are the Democrats, just in case you are in doubt.
Apparently at least one person from the minority party must be in the Wisconsin State Senate Chamber before business can be conducted, to meet the quorum requirements.
So, Democrats have left the state…or want people to think so.
Those of us who have visited the Wisconsin Dells know that Madison is not very far north of the Illinois-Wisconsin state line. It’s a long way from Madison to the Kalahari water park.
If you were a Democratic Party state legislator and wanted to get somewhere that the Wisconsin State Police couldn’t get you, wouldn’t you drive down I-90 to Illinois?
Can’t you just hear the cash registers ringing in Rockford?
Maybe at the Clock Tower Inn.
There’s a water park there named Coco Key.
Madison is so much closer to McHenry County than Springfield I wish the state lines had been drawn at the southern boundaries of McHenry and Lake Counties.
Say, we wouldn’t have to be in the same state as Chicago then, would we?
Sean Driscoll of the Rockford Register wonders if union workers in Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota will boycott Wisconsin.
If so, that might make the resorts less crowded. They certainly draw a lot of people from Illinois.

Since posting this article, the Rockford Register-Star has reported that the Democrats are at the Clock Tower Inn.
