And a report from a blogger. @bluecheddar1 Givin’ Mitt Shitt in Fitchburg, Wisconsin - a Presidential Primary Stop http://j.mp/H4M14z #MittShitt #Mitt #WI #p2 #fem2 #clowncar By bluecheddar Approximately 250 people assembled outside of Walker’s laughably named “Victory Center” in Fitchburg to give Mitt Romney some heck Saturday March 31st. Romney was visiting to do a few of his robocalls live and to stump for his presidential primary in Wisconsin. The protesters were a mix of people who held signs like “Keep your Mitt(s) off Birth Control” and people with “Recall Walker” signs, or pro-union signs, or signs that referenced dogs [if you don't know what the dog thing is about, try Dogs Against Romney ]. I did see Mitt Romney for the 1.25 seconds that he spent outside as he dashed from the door to an SUV. I also saw Paul Ryan. They both waved at the crowd. In return the crowd booed, hissed, yelled “Mitt is Shitt” and “Ryan Sucks” and chanted “Recall Walker!”. After the convoy of SUVs and cop cars became full of its political cargo, they started to move out slowly and we yelled “shame”. I usually don’t like the “shame” yell. On this occasion I reveled in it. I think I was inspired by the presence of Wisconsin’s own Paul Ryan who I am more familiar with than Romney. Real dogs and one stuffed dog were in attendance with either special attire or their car carriers or signs such as “I ride inside” or “Mutts against mitt!”....
