Ron Johnson really is America’s Dumbest Senator™:
MIDDLETON – U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson said Thursday there’s nothing improper about President Donald Trump’s call on Chinese officials to investigate his top political rival in his 2020 re-election bid.
Trump extended the invitation Thursday to the foreign country as he faces impeachment over a similar request of the president of Ukraine and just months after Trump’s 2016 campaign was investigated over its ties to Russia officials.
Via Ron Johnson OK with President Trump asking China to investigate 2020 political rival.
RoJo is now flopping around like a Billy Bass with a fresh set of batteries:
Do you suppose RoJo has a piece of the Ukraine action? He’s acting kind of strangely for a simple Senator from a hay-seed farm state.
He seems awful defensive…
Yes, he does.
It’s so odd. Most people, I truly believe, are pretty darn sharp. The GOP Senate caucus serves as a collective exception to that belief, and even among them, Johnson seems a dolt.
Why put Johnson near anything, unless one thought that the best tool for the job was one with a dull blade (useful as a lever, but too blunt to cut anyone else)?
Perhaps they assumed he’d be quieter, and do what he was told to do, but now it turns out he’s too slow to keep his mouth closed.
The always excellent charles Pierce weighs on RoJo:
Thanks much – Pierce has it right (as he so often does): “And all of this was after it was revealed that Johnson had signed onto a letter with a bipartisan group of senators supporting then-Vice President Joe Biden’s attempts to remove the corrupt Ukrainian prosecutor—which the president* insists was part of a corrupt deal that Biden struck to benefit his son, Hunter. If Johnson keeps helping this way, the president* may be in Leavenworth by Christmas.”
[…] Accord Sure enough…Ron Johnson really is America’s Dumbest Senator™. (Most people are sharp; Johnson is the exception to that plain truth.) […]
