Union Muscle?

Anyone familiar with today's organized labor movement knows it has in large part cast its lot with success of its political patrons as opposed to a ground up organizing campaign. So perhaps it is not surprising to see today's story in the Wall Street Journal about attempts by union supporters to intimidate Busch/Cheney backers in the heart of the Florida battleground. (Among the casualties in a confrontation last week, a Bush/Cheney staffer with a broken wrist.) Given the general tenor of today's political discourse, it is not all that big of a step. It would be nice if we could dial it back on all fronts several notches, but I dream.
