Is the GOP Planning to Run 'Fake Democrats' in Wisconsin?

The GOP plans to run "fake Democrats" in the upcoming Wisconsin recall election. On The Ed ShowThe Nation's John Nichols argues that this tactic will fail. Governor Scott Walker and the GOP are trying to pass a very unpopular budget that the majority of Wisconsinites oppose because it makes cuts to education, local services and escalates an ongoing attack on unions. These "fake Democrats" may help them because this would force the state to hold a primary, which would delay the recall election.
