They're still fighting in Wisconsin

The recall elections in Wisconsin are done but the fight's not over.

The first Monday of September is Labor Day, and every year in Wausau the unions sponsor a parade.

Guess who's not invited this year.

Community parades often feature local politicians waving to the crowds, but this year's annual Labor Day parade in Wausau may be short a few elected officials.

That's because the head of the group that sponsors the Wausau Labor Day Parade, the Marathon County Central Labor Council, is telling Republican lawmakers from the area that they're not welcome Sept. 5.

"Usually they've been in the parade, but it seems like they only want to stand with us one day a year, and the other 364 days they don't really care," said Randy Radtke, president of the council.

At least one Republican got his widdle feewings hurt:

"Having walked in this parade in past years," the statement read, "Congressman Duffy was hoping that for a moment, we could set our differences aside and simply have some fun in a family-friendly event."

Guess what, Duffy: show that you support labor and maybe you get to march in their parade. How does that sound?
