  •  Thanks for this diary, DR (13+ / 0-)

    You've given me some ideas for ways I can afflict Ron Johnson, (R-Knucklehead), who is one of my senators.  It's very clear from watching him in public speaking situations that he's clueless about what he's doing in Washington, DC and his understanding of the issues barely rates as "superficial".  So, I've decided that on a regular basis I'm going to write him and bring up various issues (like why we can fund prisons but cannot fund the social safety nets).  When I get replies from him---which appear to have been cobbled together very likely from the Daily Talking Points sheets he gets from the Kochs---they're quite ridiculous.  Apparently, his "shadow money" backers were able to buy him this seat but don't give him enough money to hire a communications specialist to write his constituent responses (or his speeches!).  But I can save these up, share them with others, and when he tries to run again, I will have a treasure trove of stupid comments he's made to use against him.  The IQ differential between him and Russ Feingold, whose seat he won, has got to be chasm-like!

    Objecting to our governor’s policies does not make a citizen of Wisconsin a criminal. Not yet, anyway. ~ nelangst
