In the Onion, Ron Johnson's appeal makes sense:'
Ladies and gentlemen, isn't it time you elected someone who only learned five minutes ago that there are three branches of government, not 14?
...While Russ Feingold likes to talk about how he's worked across the aisle and fostered relationships with both John McCain and members of the House of Representatives to pass campaign finance reform, I am proud to say that, as a political outsider, I could not begin to tell you what an aisle is or how the House of Representatives is remotely involved. Furthermore, who the heck is John McCain?
So far no major Wisconsin newspaper has been able to argue that the Fortunate Son-In-Law would be better for Wisconsin in the US Senate than Russ Feingold, not even his hometown Oshkosh Northwestern. It would be a shame if the Wisconsin State Journal even tried; they would probably be taken as seriously as the Onion.
