With the new week, let us celebrate yet another out-of-state GOPer who wants to tell New Yorkers what to do (even as New Yorkers, according to at least one poll, have a quite different view of Cordoba House than national Republicans).
This one goes even further, though...not only does he want to tell NYC politicians and zoning officials what to do, this guy wants to tell the construction workers of New York what to do.
Best of all, his name is quite a familiar one, as of late. Ladies and gentlemen, Wisconsin Republican Senate frontrunner Ron Johnson:
"Those folks are trying to poke a stick in our eye," Johnson said. "I just hope the zoning officials and the city, the state revisit that, rezone that piece of property."
The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate continued: "If they don't do it I hope the construction workers in New York show their outrage and say we are not going to do that."
Pretty cheeky of a multi-millionaire to demand that an industry where unemployment is as high as 20 percent should voluntarily refuse work in order to buttress a right-wing talking point.
Here is the big question: Will there be the same synergy between Johnson and the national GOP on this point, as there already was on his (and their) absurd anti-science crusade?
