I've long maintained Tommy Thompson is a rusty campaigner and carries plenty baggage, and just days after winning the GOP nomination, he's already given us proof of both. From a press conference held at a campaign event on Wednesday:
"When I was governor and I was employed [by] the people of the State of Wisconsin, I released my tax returns, but I've been in the business world, and the question is, 'Am I going to release my tax returns?’ The answer is 'no'. No. The answer is 'N-O.' What part don’t you understand?"He sounds both crotchety and like he has something to hide—just the way I like Republican Senate candidates.
