Pistol-packing poll watchers?

Just thinking as I read about Badger State Repubs looking for some tough guys to watch the polls:

The Washington Post reported it first:

The Wisconsin Republican Party has issued a call for volunteer poll watchers for Election Day, and the criteria is a little specific, seeking especially folks made of sterner stuff.

Jonathan Waclawski, the party’s election day operations, wrote in a Sept. 8 e-mail that he needed contact information for people “who would potentially be willing to volunteer … at inner city (more intimidating) polling places. Particularly, I am interested in names of Milwaukee area veterans, policemen, security personnel, firefighters etc. … If you have any connections with such organizations, please pass that information on.”

Doesn’t it make you wish we had concealed carry?

Pistol-packing poll watchers is all we need. And if it hadn’t been for Gov. Jim Doyle’s veto, we’d probably have them.
