Sen. Ron John the clown Ripped As 'Virus That Infects' GOP By Wisconsin Newspaper

Wisconsin newspaper The Capital Times ripped Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) as “a virus that infects” the state’s GOP in a blistering editorial calling for him to face a serious Republican challenger in his reelection bid.

Johnson is “little more than a placeholder” for former President Donald Trump who “could care less about what Wisconsin Republicans think,” the newspaper’s editorial board wrote in the stinging essay published Wednesday.

The Times ripped Johnson as “a delusional huckster” and a political grifter in the article that charted the paper’s own 105-year history alongside the evolution of Republican politics, for the worse, in the state.

“We’re not naïve. We don’t imagine that dislodging Johnson in his own party’s primary is a likely prospect. But we do believe that he should be challenged, sincerely and aggressively,” the editorial board said, suggesting a serious GOP primary challenger could expose “how out of sync” he is with traditional GOP values.

1. Maybe they really mean that he's only a lazy leader attached to donors

so much worse in advocating the dismantling of the American experience of democracy who should be elected? Are there any good GOP traditional values left among the party faithful congress critters or candidates? Without exception, I don't see any. That viral infection of evil even has corrupted, at the very least, a couple of folks in the other tribe!
