And my new Senator-elect, a "Teabagger" named Ron Johnson who is completely unqualified for the office, but who spent a LOT of his own money (it's SO easy to be rich when one marries into big Bemis family money) in order to defeat a man whom I consider to be one of the finest Senators I've ever seen...Russ Feingold.

Mr. Johnson, like so many of the Teabaggers, refused to answer specific questions about his plans (as I'm sure he doesn't really have any, other than to derail the current administration and get a tax cut for himself and his millionaire friends/family) and I am confident that he will infuriate me on a regular basis, so I'm sure his office staff will get very used to hearing from me.
The GOP also managed to take over control of both the state Senate and the Assembly here in Wisconsin, so when our crazy new Governor tries to get his pals in control of the State House to pass some insane anti-choice act, or change the State Constitution in order to ban Gay Marriage, or to allow people to be packing a concealed gun at WalMart...I'm sure they'll be right there for him...which terrifies me.
I read an excellent article today by Bill Moyers about the influence of big money on our elective process... Money Fights Hard and it Fights Dirty...the article is subtitled "Welcome to the Plutocracy!" Big money just bought itself a country and now will get their way, at the expense of the people who were stupid enough to vote the way they were told by billionaires, instead of in their own best interests. :(
I wonder what they’re going to set up to impeach Obama for…
