Then there's this excellent summary of events in Madison at PowerLine which includes videos of doctors writing sick notes for people who called in sick to attend the protest. These doctors are defrauding the taxpayers and violating their professional code of ethics. If there's justice in Wisconsin they'll have their licenses to practice suspended or revoked.

By the way, if you go to these two sites notice the difference in the tenor of the signs of the Democrats and the tea partiers. The mainstream media hasn't had much to say about any of this, but you can bet it would be all over the Sunday shows and evening news if tea partiers, or (conservatives or Republicans) had behaved like the union members, liberals, and Democrats have behaved in Madison this week.
