Finally, definitive proof that at least one Wisconsin Republican voter has a heart. Sixty-Nine year old Terry Kopplin was planning on a trip to the polls Tuesday to do his patriotic duty when he began having chest pains. He was rushed to the hospital where emergency surgery was conducted to insert a metal stint into a coronary artery. The life-long Republican regained consciousness in the recovery room and immediately demanded a ballot to vote for Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker. A friend secured the absentee ballot and brought it to Kopplin who voted in the hospital. Wisconsin law permits hospitalized citizens to vote by absentee ballot up until 5:00 p.m. on Election Day. Walker is projected to win the race handily … er, heartily?
