Obama Effigy Burned In Wisconsin Bar

Plenty of space has already been devoted to what Tuesdays midterm elections signified in terms of the chances for both parties come November, and whether they were an accurate reflection of the national mood. I suspect that as with everything to do with politics in the last 12 months there is simply no way to tell.

Michael Wolff, meanwhile, thinks the “question more and more is not about the outcome of the November election but about how weird it will be.” It’s going to be weird. In fact at this point I think it’s safe to say the national political sound and fury is merely signifying more sound and fury to come.

Here is a good example. A bartender in Wisconsin is apparently under investigation by the Secret Service for burning a statue of Obama in effigy…in front of a cheering crowd. If you look closely you can sort of see that there may be duck tape around the statues neck. Welcome to Summer 2010? Video below.
