Ron Johnson Plans "Re-education" of America

Oy.

The Washington Monthly

Elsewhere in the Politico piece, VandeHei asked what kind of innovative ideas Johnson might pursue as a U.S. senator. Johnson skipped right past substantive issues, and committed himself to a "re-education of America."

Are you kidding me? Can you even imagine what the response would be if a liberal Democrat vowed to pursue a "re-education of America" if elected to the U.S. Senate?

Maybe Wisconsin voters just don't know what they're getting themselves into; maybe they do and they're angry enough not to care. Regardless, Johnson may not get the exposure some of his extremist allies get in Nevada, Delaware, and Kentucky, but the differences between his right-wing worldview and theirs are practically non-existent.

I know, isn't it amazing how much Republicans can get away with, never thinking how it would sound if things were reversed?

It's something that not only drives me nuts, but a frequent blogging subject.

How about a guy running on a platform to "Change" the wealthiest country on earth into a 3rd world banana republic? Now that sounds crazy! But we had to deem it passed, or pass it to find out what's in it.

Only those guys aren't getting away with it. They will be tried for treason, domestic enemies repugnant to the Constitution.

Rob a 7-11 for $200, go to jail for 20 years.
Rob a nation of a trillion, and you get another trillion bailout and kickbacks for your pals!?

"Stop! Thief!"
They're not going to get away with it.
