Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson: “Thank God We Rigged the State Supreme Court Election”
Ron Johnson (R—Befuddled) is Wisconsin’s newest senator. Wisconsin voters actually chose this pathetic excuse for a retard over Russ Feingold last November?!?!?!?!?!
Johnson spoke to a Heritage Foundation audience yesterday (talk about birds of a feather). He told them that when he thought JoAnne Kloppenburg had defeated David Prosser — i.e. before they found those 14,000 “missing” Republican votes:
“I was pretty depressed. That was depressing. The signal that that would have sent, the amount of energy that would have provided to public sector unions, the bosses and just to the electorate in general I think would have been terrible for the nation, truthfully.”
The vote count hasn’t been completed yet, and there’s an investigation underway (supposedly). But that didn’t stop Johnson from spewing out:
“It was a squeaker but we won and the polling results I'd seen didn't indicate that we were going to win. So from my standpoint that was a huge victory and it has far greater implications beyond the state of Wisconsin.”
He also talked about the “new class warfare” of “public sector vs. private sector.”
And he wins this year’s Unclear on the Concept Award for pointing out that government employees outnumber manufacturing employees by almost two to one.
Earth to Stupid: Maybe that’s because YOUR party sabotaged the economy and destroyed millions of jobs. DUUUHHH!!!
He also trotted out the Right’s favorite urban legends about death threats against Wisconsin Republicans, and pro-union demonstrations being full of SEIU thugs who intimidated everybody. And — of course! — these threats and assaults are not being reported by the liberal media.
Riiight. Union thugs are wreaking havoc in Wisconsin and the corporate-owned media isn’t reporting it.
