RoJo: Not All Elections Are Created Equal
March 15, 2016

On Monday afternoon, Our Dumb Senator, Ron Johnson, did an interview on WTMJ-AM, a Milwaukee-based squawk radio station. He started off bragging about his chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee, even though he's missed more meetings than he's attended. He ended with bashing Hillary Clinton because BENGHAZI!!! and EMAILS!!!!

In between, he made a very peculiar comment. Just after bragging about his nearly nonexistent track record, he made an offhand remark that Russ Feingold wanted to "really ignore" the will of the 2010 voters by running for his old job back. Listen for yourself (about the 1:30 mark)

What makes this comment so peculiar is that it reaches a new level of hypocrisy, even for him. RoJo was the same fool that just a few weeks ago said that the elections of 2012 shouldn't matter in whether President Obama should nominate anyone for the Supreme Court:

"I strongly agree that the American people should decide the future direction of the Supreme Court by their votes for president and the majority party in the U.S. Senate," Johnson said in a statement released Sunday. "America needs Supreme Court justices who share Justice Scalia's commitment to applying the Constitution as written and to the freedom it secures."

My first thought was to wonder what RoJo would have to say a year from now when President Clinton or President Sanders makes their nomination, but realized that was an inane question. After all, it will be Senator Russ Feingold's decision in a year from now.
