So everyone can march on Labor Day in Wausau; will Republicans show up?

Much ado about nothing -- the refusal by Labor Day parade organizers in Wausau to allow Republican elected officials to march -- has resulted in a change, and now everyone can march, the Wausau Herald reports.

If they dare to show up.

Marathon County Labor Council President Randy Radtke said … “we don't want to have community groups and school bands affected. We didn't start this fight in Wisconsin, but were responding to anti-worker positions and policies supported by local Republican politicians, including those who have complained about not being invited. With the track records that Pam Galloway, Sean Duffy, Scott Walker, and Jerry Petrowski have all put together this year, they should be ashamed to even show their faces at a Labor Day parade." 

Rep. Duffy -- the guy whose exclusion started all the hubbub -- wisely said he plans to attend a Labor Day celebration in Merrill on Monday instead of the Wausau event.

UPDATE: Duffy now says he's coming after all.
