Ron Johnson: A Dangerous Man.

An 'intensely private guy with a good business and a nice house on Lake Winnebago' wants to unseat Senator Russ Feingold in my state. God knows what he actually wants to do in office, except shovel subsidies to his beloved plastics industry. He doesn't like this year's health care bill, saying Obama has been 'demonizing doctors.' Can he show me any evidence of this tendency, or is this just another claim valid only in the ethereal plane, as so many Tea Party rallying cries are?

I remember distinctly that Republicans demonized Obama from day one of his campaign for (among other things) 'lacking experience.' So it only stands to reason they would nominate someone with zero political experience to a position of great power. Mr Johnson's current Rasputin, Curt Anderson, "presented [him with] two options: legislator or messenger."

"I will be a messenger," he says, pointing to Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) as a kind of guiding star in the Senate.

Here we have a morsel of what kind of Senator Ron Johnson would be: theocratic, ever-ready to demonize gays, Muslims, and blacks, virulently anti-science.

I implore Wisconsin voters to think twice about voting for this 'good businessman.'
