Over 1 million signatures were collected in the recall effort of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Now we wait as the Government Accountability Board verifies all of the signatures in a secret, undisclosed location.
There’s a live stream of these folks doing their work. And a Twitter hashtag #recallcam for folks to play along. @recallcam has led the way as the community has assigned names and stories to the workers, etc.
In an “art imitates life imitates art” moment, I caught the Talking Heads “Burning Down the House” while watching #recallcam yesterday.
My house is out of the ordinary
That’s right, don’t want to hurt nobody
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house
No visible means of support and you have not seen nothin’ yet
Everything’s stuck together
I don’t know what you expect starting into the TV set
Fighting fire with fire
I’ve listened to this 30 seconds on loop a few hundred times out of utter amazement how well it fits to our situation in Wisconsin over the past year. Try for yourself.
