Wisconsin's uber-conservative junior US senator surprisingly hit one out of the park today on behalf of progressives and activists. In an opinion column in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Ron Johnson wrote:
The United States has a long history of corruption, mismanagement and appeasement of regimes that are determined to develop weapons of mass destruction, limit freedom and commit genocide. These are indisputable facts.
Wow! I didn't know the guy had it in him. But, obviously, past and continuing US abuse of international war conventions, its use during the last Bush administration of torture like water-boarding, its tremendously huge and destabilizing nuclear arsenal and continuing moves to curb the freedom of Americans to vote, to assemble, to speak freely and more. These are indisputable facts, all right!
