No Republicans at a Labor Day event?

(By Ed Morrissey, Hot Air) - Via Instapundit, it looks like the unions will be sore losers for some time in Wisconsin. After losing on the public-employee union reforms, the Prosser-Kloppenburg race, and the overall recall effort, Marathon County’s Central Labor Council has decided that it doesn’t want any Republicans at its party on Labor Day. They told Sean Duffy, the Congressional Representative for the area, not to bother showing up for a spot in the parade:

The Marathon County Central Labor Council says it does not want to invite elected officials who have “openly attacked workers’ rights” or did nothing when state workers lost most rights to collectively bargain.
