In Madison, a Pitiful Victory Rally (Video)

August 11, 2011 - Madison WI - The Democrats were soundly defeated in Tuesday's six special recall elections. That didn't stop their "victory" celebration in the rotunda of Wisconsin's Capitol Building. Chicago News Bench was there. Here's our little video, below.  The group was well behaved, but weirdness was certainly present. Just before the sing-a-long began at noon, one participant approached a Capitol security guard and berated him for - get this - holding and drinking from a bottle of water. "You should be protecting people, not drinking water," she yelled at him. The guard and I exchanged bemused looks as the woman stomped off.
