Today’s news, cable and otherwise, will be dominated by two overarching stories: the Queen’s 60th anniversary celebration and the Wisconsin recall election. And we can’t say we expected those stories to intersect at any point in time, but Al Roker found a way. Roker, who was covering the Queen’s procession for Today this morning, went into the crowd to find some of the interesting characters that migrated to London to watch the historic event. He found a Wisconsonite with the tattoo to prove it, happy to support Tom Barrett (but also the Queen of England, apparently).
Roker found a friendly British man to lend him a flag and express excitement for the occasion, but in the process somehow found a small group of men from Wisconsin in t-shirts ready to yell out “Go Packers!” and show off their Wisconsin tattoos. They were also happy to express support for Democratic challenger Barrett in what, without Today around, might have been the least effective setting for showing support for the Wisconsin recall.
