UP: Laura Kaeppeler. The 23-year-old from Kenosha is crowned Miss America, the first to hail from Wisconsin since 1973. Kaeppeler is asked whether Miss America should declare a political affiliation, to which she answers no: "Miss America represents everyone." Gasp, even Scott Walker?
DOWN: Scott Walker. On Rush Limbaugh's radio show, Walker predicted organizers would collect about 720,000 signatures for a recall. But on Tuesday, they submitted over 1 million signatures, not far off from the 1.12 million votes that elected Walker in 2010. See Judith Davidoff's article here.
