Tommy Thompson's Phony Fiscal Humility Was On Display in DC, Too

Most of the reporting about Tommy Thompson's buffonish remarks to a Jewish organization in Washington, DC focused on his stereotypical thought 'process' about Jewish people.

But Michael Horne digs a little deeper into Tommy's finances and finds that our ex-Gov. has been doing better financially than he let on at the meeting.

Horne's work is relevant because the whole set up for praising Jews for being religiously-inclined to make money was some poor-mouthing Tommy did about his inability to make money before hitting private sector paydirt.

Horne reminds us about Tommy's lucrative real estate dealing while he was in Bush's cabinet, and other decent buckage our boy been taking down for some time.
