"Oh, my name is Ron Johnson and I come from Wisconsin..."
Today while puttering around the house I overheard a blurb on Milwaukee Public Radio's WUWM-FM from Milwaukee Magazine. Be sure, we were told, to check out the magazine's new story on Sen. Ron Johnson and his -- I swear to god -- "meteoric" rise to prominence in the US Senate.
Well, the lady of the house is always telling me my hearing isn't so good these days, so I traipsed over to the magazine's web site to see if I'd gotten that right. The good news is that the actual article doesn't use the word "meteoric," but it still fawns over Johnson, in the way other publications (maybe we should call them Republications) previously fawned over other GOP ultraconservatives who supposedly got religion and converted themselves into reasonable, compromising people.
