Tom Barrett is considering whether he needs another ass kicking in a recall election for governor, but he may believe that he's been beat up enough over his career. Barrett has yet to throw his hat into the ring, and for good reason: Governor Walker's war chest will swell to sums Barrett could only have coma-induced dreams about because of the infusion of corporate donations from abroad. With that money, any candidate running against Walker will receive the business end of a big stick, then be dragged through the mud while chained to a large, gas-guzzling SUV. Barrett already took one beating from Walker, and he might be a bit gun shy about taking another high hard one for the team.
