    is not the sole cause for Johnson's election win over Feingold, but they sure as heck helped.  The two largest newspapers, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and WI State Journal, are nothing but Republican mouth-pieces.  The television ad buys for Johnson (and Walker) were nothing but puff-pieces of a make-believe human who, in real life, is nothing like what he was portrayed as.  It was sickening.  I know our Puddytat here at DK loathes the media and I do as well.  And it also doesn't help that we have a lot of voters who believe whatever they see on the tv or hear on right-wing radio (I question how many of them can or do read a newspaper).

      They repeated his meme of "self made businessman" when the truth is that he MARRIED his business (the owners daughter).   They never pressed him for answers on policies he proposed and HID his connection to the Tea Party (I know plenty of voters who were absolutely dropping their teeth in horror when the first line in Johnsons victory speech was to claim victory for the Tea Party - yah - they didn't believe me when I told them before the election).

      People who voted for him weren't stupid - just misinformed and lied to by a media that pretends to report the facts.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
