"Sometimes you need to...get a little bloody."

Rep. Michael Capuano, (D) Mass.
So much for toning down the rhetoric. Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up a group of union members in Boston with a speech urging them to work down in the trenches to fend off limits to workers' rights like those proposed in Wisconsin.

"I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going," Capuano said, according to theDorchester Reporter. "Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary." Read the full story here.

Why do I keep reporting on the battle in Wisconsin? Because this fight in Wisconsin will eventually lead to similar battles across the country, including Michigan as legislatures and governors deal with severe budget shortfalls.
