Well, I guess sometimes you do get a break

While it appears that Rahm Emanuel is leaving the White House soon so he can spend more time cursing at his family, things haven’t looked too good for Russ Feingold, who’d like to stay employed. The Wisconsin Senator who is generally a reliable progressive, if occasionally a tad sanctimonious, is having a tough reelection campaign. In a year that has been good for Republicans (for once it really is good news for them) Feingold had recently fallen double-digits behind his Republican opponent, Ron Johnson, in some polls (that aren’t Rasmussen).

But as they say the Lord works in mysterious ways…especially when you are running against an idiot.

Here’s Mr. Johnson on videotape (via Jud Loundsbury at the Great Orange Satan) protecting the right of Catholic Diocese to reassign pedophile priests and make it harder for victims to sue. A real popular position all around.

Your move Russ.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
