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.

Idiots like my in-laws will lap it right up.

Naturally, they learned long ago to not speak politics within my earshot. Frigging idiots.

What's a man-u-faktsch ring? I don't like jewelry.

I have some relatives who will lap all this stuff right up too. Same thing here, i.e. we just all know better than to open our mouths about politics (and religion).

But since that seems to be about all they are interested in, it doesn't usually leave us much to talk about except the weather... but that is far more pleasant than trying to be stoic while listening to their diatribes. 8-) I never bring those things up, they are the ones who do. And then it's just "bite my lip and think of other more pleasant things" time once they get on a roll...

As for Wisconsin, it seems as if it may be surpassing Florida as the poster child for ED (Electoral Dysfunction).

What a Country
The Koch Brothers are the Voice of the People while millions of Union Members are a special interest group.

Johnson comes across as just what I've come to expect. (Excuse me for a minute; I have to go scrape my shoe off).

Having been away, I missed news about 14,000 Republican votes being "found." This smacks of the kind of chicanery that got George W. Bush appointed and elected. The investigation should be conducted by the FBI or Justice Department, not Wisconsin state officials and employees who serve at Scott Walker's pleasure.

When it comes to destroying manufacturing jobs, I'm sorry to say, no one has made a bigger "contribution" than Bill Clinton. I'm haunted by the notion Clinton is Obama's template as well as mentor.

JR: I hate those awkward moments when in-laws start spewing out the latest Fox News talking points.

Randal: Well, you see, a long long time ago...

Snave: Thank God for weather, that great space-filler during awkward conversations. "Electoral Dysfunction" LOL. America finally has a diagnosis.

Anonymous: LOL. As twisted as that sounds, millions of people actually believe it.

SW: That's the trouble with vacations and taking breaks from the news; you get clobbered with all this shitty news when you get back :)

That's true about Clinton. I liked him because he had a strong personality and stood up to Republicans (unlike his current counterpart); but he was too corporate for me.
