“My Opponent Knows Where Washington is on a Map; I Don’t and I Never Will”

The Onion goofs on the Johnson/Feingold matchup.  It’s really too silly to be really scathing as an attack, but it is funny.

And no, Johnson didn’t actually write it.

I would be a very happy man if Feingold, of the infamous McCain-Feingold free-expression-strangling legislation lost his job.

  1. Feingold has a flaky streak that makes him more interesting than most Democratic senators. Some overemphasize that, or mistake it for “moderation.”

    He’s not a moderate, though. He’s a whole lot more loyal to, and compliant with, his party leadership than is, say, Scott Brown or Olimpia Snow are to theirs.

    I would be very glad to see him retired by the voters, too, but notwithstanding current polls, I will not be surprised if he survives.

  2. Garbled that, meant to say:

    Feingold is a whole lot more loyal to, and compliant with, his party leadership (i.e., Obama/Reid/Pelosi) than, say, Scott Brown or Olimpia Snow are to theirs.

  4. I’m from the Midwest and I swear Feingold has been in office forever.

    Since I’ve been to the opera recently, I will thus call this Feingold defeat “Fas Feingold, or twilight of a god.” :)

  7. OT, sorry. I’m in California and easily found enough information to decide on the 9 ballot propositions, but where do I go for info on the 3 Supreme Court justices and the 5 appellate justices that get a yea or nay vote? Google is not helping me very much.

  8. Old Coot, it’s hard to find anything specific. Judgevoterguide.com has a limited analysis.

  9. On the nine ballot propositions, for me it’s 19 Y, 25 Y, everything else N.
