Liberal Wisconsin Newspaper Endorses Scott Walker

Particularly given what we've seen in the past three years, it's difficult to ascribe good faith to the "Democrat-Media Complex" (Andrew Breitbart's term). So when a big liberal paper like the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel endorses Gov. Scott Walker in the Wisconsin recall election, it suggests that internal polling convinced the editorial board to get on board the Walker train just for appearance sake.

Although the paper stated that "we see no reason to remove Walker from office," the endorsement was also qualified:
Walker's rematch with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was prompted by one issue: Walker's tough stance with the state's public-employee unions....Walker brought some of this animosity on himself...We think his limits on collective bargaining went too far...And while we think Act 10 - the law that clipped the wings of most public-employee unions in the state - was an overreach of political power, we understand and supported the need to rein in the state's labor costs...Even if you disagree with Walker's policies, does that justify cutting short his term as governor? And if so, where does such logic lead? To more recall elections? More turmoil?
 The Wisconsin recall is the most important election in America other than the presidential vote in November.

This video in support of Walker is kind of corny but also kind of cool:
