Some of them stay inside the state to do their crying.
The Associated Press reports:
Republicans in the Wisconsin Assembly took the first significant action on their plan to strip collective bargaining rights from most public workers, abruptly passing the measure early Friday morning before sleep-deprived Democrats realized what was happening.
The vote ended three straight days of punishing debate in the Assembly…
Debate had gone on for 60 hours and 15 Democrats were still waiting to speak when the vote started around 1 a.m. Friday. Speaker Pro Tem Bill Kramer, R-Waukesha, opened the roll and closed it within seconds.
Democrats looked around, bewildered. Only 13 of the 38 Democratic members managed to vote in time.
Republicans immediately marched out of the chamber in single file. The Democrats rushed at them, pumping their fists and shouting “Shame!” and “Cowards!”
See for yourself:
A lot of people on the left think these petulant bursts of rage are a sign of strength. Let them keep on thinking that.
And if you want to complain about holding votes in the middle of the night, I’ve got one word for you: Obamacare. Just be glad the victors here didn’t march around with a giant gavel.

P.S. Speaking of ol’ Nancy: Pelosi edits honorary resolution…on Pelosi.
