Not much to add. At a brunch this a.m., with
the elder Thompson RNC chair Reince Preibus in attendance, Jason Thompson speechifies that “we have the opportunity to send President Obama back to Chicago — or Kenya.”
No comment from the (oh-so-reasonable and moderate) Thompson. Reince Preibus was in the audience as well.
Update: Thanks for the rec list. Not much of a diary, but I have little to add aside from outrage, frustration and assorted other unproductive emotional responses. One thing I can do is add the link to Tammy Baldwin's ActBlue page.
Update 2: Important correction. Tommy Thompson was not in attendance (but Preibus was). Younger Thompson has apologized through the Thompson campaign. A luke-warmish apology in my opinion: “The Governor has addressed this with his son, just like any father would do. Jason Thompson said something he should not have, and he apologizes.” Tommy Thompson was not in attendance at the event."
