Woman pushed to ground, head stomped on, by Rand Paul supporters
There are few words that are appropriate for this, other than “TOTALLY UNACCETABLE,” which must be written in huge capital letters. Rand Paul has yet to condemn this—which is exactly what he must do. Update 1: Mr. Paul has condemned the attack. How about you, Mr. Halbert? And the men who did this—you just committedContinue reading “Woman pushed to ground, head stomped on, by Rand Paul supporters”
The Onion skewers Ron Johnson
In a sense, you know you’ve arrived when The Onion is making fun of you. “My Opponent Knows Where Washington Is On A Map; I Don’t, And I Never Will” Do enjoy! OBTW: Hopefully this won’t get him too many votes.
Ron Johnson’s lack of plans for the economy, veterans — anything — focus of new Feingold TV ad
I have to say, it’s true. Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ron Johnson has glossed over huge swaths of major issues, from the economy to veterans benefits. As he said at the UW-Milwaukee candidate forum on October 21, “I don’t believe this election really is about details, it just isn’t.” Too bad they don’t matter toContinue reading “Ron Johnson’s lack of plans for the economy, veterans — anything — focus of new Feingold TV ad”
For first time, Green Bay Press-Gazette endorses Feingold
The Green Bay Press-Gazette (a Gannett newspaper) has given its endorsement to Russ Feingold, the first time it has ever done so. Their reasoning: while there was agreement with Johnson on some principles, “Johnson seemed unable to further articulate his plan for job creation — especially for the middle class — during a recent meetingContinue reading “For first time, Green Bay Press-Gazette endorses Feingold”
A brief summary of the free rides Ron Johnson has gotten from government
For a guy who claims to loath everything that Gubmint is and stands for, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ron Johnson has gotten more than his share of very substantial government assistance—some of it running to this very day. I will use the text of a poll over on DailyKos to summarize it for you: HisContinue reading “A brief summary of the free rides Ron Johnson has gotten from government”
Feingold, Johnson in dead heat in last 2 weeks
Isn’t this always how it goes for Feingold? At least what we are told is that the good Senator somehow pulls ahead at the end of the race, squeaking by his latest millionaire opponent. That is how it looks to be once again. Despite spending millions of his wealthy family’s money, and having millions moreContinue reading “Feingold, Johnson in dead heat in last 2 weeks”
My question on Ron Johnson’s company using prison labor: Hiring after release?
A sad fact of America’s sprawling prison-industrial complex is that upon release, many former prisoners do not have work skills, to say nothing of the stigma that comes with a criminal record. And by now–the news has been out for at least fifteen minutes now–it’s old news that, quoting the AP story, “Pacur Inc. and Dynamic Drinkware LLC,Continue reading “My question on Ron Johnson’s company using prison labor: Hiring after release?”
Ron Johnson’s money bomb, so successful that it disappeared?
“Donate to Ron Johnson’s money bomb TODAY and watch the scales tip back to the people!” declares Real Debate Wisconsin. I find that statement rather ironic, not just that it comes from that site, but that there’s the impression that electing Johnson in lieu of Senator Feingold will in any way return the seat to “theContinue reading “Ron Johnson’s money bomb, so successful that it disappeared?”
