Nichols is both self-serving, tedious and tiresome, although I would never accuse him of being a fraud (the way Christopher Hayes of MSNBC is - - he did the misinformation number on the Transnational Highway as a conspiracy theory, and was rewarded with his own TV show), but what was accomplished other than displaying what utter idiots, ignoramuses and fools union workers are today in America (exceptions: the nurses' unions, National Nurses United, et cetera, and Longshore Union). The same percentage of union households voted for Gov. Walker the second time around, for gosh sakes! And the way those nincompoops welcomed Bill Clinton to Wisconsin as if he were some kind of national hero, instead of doing the very exact same thing Gov. Walker was doing (ending collective bargaining and turning Wisconsin into a right-to-work state, i.e., destroying workers' rights) when Clinton was governor of Arkansas. Wisconsin and its union workers exemplified what is truly wrong with America: a completely useless, dumbed down populace! (What is truly telling, and oh so sad and unfortunate, is that Egypt is even worse off today than it was under Mubarak, as probably is Wisconsin!)
