Prof. Rick's horn book writing and research

Prof. Rick is skeptical Republican/Fox News/BP candidate for Senate Ron Johnson ever said he wanted to open up the Great Lakes to oil & gas drilling. "His answer did not mention the Great Lakes but the question to which he was responding is said to have used the Great Lakes as an example — although I have yet to see anyone reproduce it and it now seems to be behind WisPolitics' pay wall," alleges Rick.

No it ain't. June 10, 2010:
WISPOLITICS: Do you want to open up more of the United States to drilling? I mean, would you support drilling like in the Great Lakes, for example, if there was oil found there, or more exploration in Alaska, ANWR, those kinds of things?

RON JOHNSON: Y'know, the bottom line is that we are an oil-based economy. We're really, there's nothing we're going to do to get off of that for many, many years. So I mean we just have to, we have to be realistic and recognize that fact and I think we have to get the oil where it is ...
"Like in the Great Lakes, for example." That was the question.

To be fair, Ron Johnson doesn't know where the Great Lakes are.
