Journal-Sentinel endorses Ron Johnson

Ron Johnson has benefit of being "not crazy," sez editorializer
U.S. Senate candidate Ron Johnson isn’t crazy because he thinks sunspots may be causing climate change.
Don't these guys read their own paper?
"It's far more likely that it's just sunspot activity or just something in the geologic eons of time," [Ron Johnson] said.
"Just" being the operative word. It means: "Only."

And what of Sun Spots Henrik Svensmark?

RoJo was just talking generally, didn't hear the "climate" part of the question, and thought someone was asking him for spare change, which made him break out in sunspots.

Or else he never said that.

Or didn't mean it.

Or never talked to the Journal Sentinel.

Or never heard of that newspaper.

Your choice.

As they say, RoJo is an amateur getting up to speed.

I saw that. P. McIlheran was particularly impressed by Johnson's ability to follow wise counsel during his tour of the welding shop: "Don't look at the arc." "Instead," enthuses P-Mac, Johnson "peer[ed] inside a giant boom, which is what you and I would do, since we're curious and not looking for votes."

He's curious alright.

He looked inside the giant boom because he knew there weren't any reporters in there.
