Feelin’ fly like a cheesehead?

Posted by Matthew Koehler on February 19, 2011

Wow! Who hasn’t been inspired by the images, words and actions coming out of Wisconsin?  Upwards of 40,000 citizens have taken to the streets of Madison all week and surrounded the state capitol with the type of Progressive energy and passion that Wisconsin is famous for.

Make sure to check out this video montage from the Wisconsin progressive blog Blue Cheddar for an inside view of what’s been transpiring in Madison over the past few days.  Also worth watching is Ed Schultz’s interview with progressive reporter John Nichols. For insight, context and perhaps the best coverage of the protests in Madison, also check out the excellent reporting in the Cap Times, Wisconsin’s very own Progressive newspaper.

As a very proud cheesehead and Wisconsin native, it’s been totally inspiring – and at times very emotional – to see these images, hear the speeches and read Facebook updates from my Wisconsin friends, neighbors and former classmates.

Lucky for those of us in Montana, if you woke up this morning and thought, “Hey, who can teach me how to Bucky?”  Or, if you are saying to yourself, “Man, I’m feelin’ so fly like a cheesehead” there is a local solution!  Come to Helena on Monday, February 21st!
