1. Yep. Let's hope Wisconsin voters knows what a gem
they have in Russ Feingold and that they show up in droves to support him over Ron Johnson this fall.

Recommended.

2. Now it turns out Johnson paid racist "Bell Curve" author thousands.
Another republican showing his true colors. Lily-white.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ron Johnson personally paid for a controversial author to speak to leaders in Oshkosh this spring after more than a year of pointed, sometimes tense discussions with other members of a committee designed to foster collaboration between education and business leaders.

An Oshkosh Northwestern analysis of hundreds of e-mails and meeting minutes found Johnson, while serving as chairman of the Oshkosh Partners in Education Council, pushed to have Charles Murray speak despite objections from other members. The PIE council is a group of educators and business leaders who meet regularly through the auspices of the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce to discuss best practices for preparing students for life after high school.

Johnson, one of two Republicans in the Sept. 14 primary vying to take on Sen. Russ Feingold in November, said he paid Murrays $5,750 fee to encourage discussion about improving local schools and helping students achieve their full potential. Murray, a member of the conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute, is best known for his controversial and bestselling book, The Bell Curve, which discusses genetic-based intelligence and differences in abilities among ethnic groups.

5. This is a very informative article that clarifies the facts:
I had written that Ron Johnson's only qualification was that he started a small plastics company in Oshkosh.

That claim was completely wrong and I apologize.

The reason why I came to that conclusion is that on Ron Johnson's campaign website it says,"In 1979, Ron and Jane moved to Wisconsin, where Ron started a business called PACUR with his brother-in-law".

The truth, though, is that this statement is completely wrong. I should have known better to fact-check something I read on the internet. Again, I apologize.

PACUR was actually a spin-off company of another plastics company called Curwood, which was co-founded by Howard Curler (Ron Johnson's father-in-law) in 1958.
