Remember CNN’s crying man? I’m sure you do. He’s the liberal Wisconsin voter that broke down on live TV and claimed democracy had “died” because Gov. Scott Walker won the recall election. His video was viral gold. Well guess what: he’s baaaack.

The sobbing protester apparently wasn’t content with just his 15-minutes of fame (or is it shame?). A blogger named Badger Pundit — presumably a Wisconsin resident — put together a video highlighting some of protester’s calls into local radio shows. In fact, he tussled with conservative host Vicki McKenna.

After the protester, “Mike,“ called in and identified himself as the ”crying guy,” McKenna challenged him to explain how democracy is dead when there have been four recent elections.

He really couldn’t.

Just as he did in the CNN interview, “Mike” went on to claim that the election was all about money, saying Tom Barrett was outspent by ridiculous amounts (which The Blaze has already debunked in part). And when challenged to explain how millions of people voting isn’t the “will of the people,” he couldn’t. And the ironic part comes when, after throwing out dollar figures, he uses the phrase “we don’t know the actual amount yet” to try and prove his point (he also hinted that the media was on the side of Walker, but McKenna’s in-studio guest tears that theory apart).

He apparently took the viralness of his cry-fest the wrong way. He thinks he's a celebrity that people want to talk to when, in fact, all we want to do it make fun of him.

This is typical. Democracy is only dead when they lose.
