Last week, Scott Walker managed to retain his office as governor of Wisconsin, in spite of the fact that he’s one of the most disliked governors in the country. After 18 months of protests, rallies, and outside help, unions and other activists were unsuccessful in their efforts to oust Walker and his Republican cronies. And although Walker’s friends helped him win by pouring tens of millions of dollars into the race, that wasn’t the only deciding factor – Another factor that has gone overlooked is that the activists who started the recall drive and protests allowed their movement to be hijacked by politicos – on both sides – who managed to obscure the message that was so clear at the beginning of the Wisconsin uprising. Mike Papantonio talks about why this happened, and why there’s still hope, with Mother Jones reporter Andy Kroll.
