Ron Johnson Could Soon Say He Never Owned BP Stock

The Journal Sentinel is reporting that GOP Senate candidate Ron Johnson could soon sell his BP stock.

Methinks that polling must be telling Johnson that his association with BP is a liability in a campaign these days.

Perhaps he will say if the sale takes place that he never owned BP shares, just as he said he had never said he was in favor of drilling for oil in the Great Lakes - - which he shortly before had said in a interview.

That's a great line -- that he might say he never owned it.

Let's wait and see. Given his track record, that might not be a joke.

Or maybe he'll say he never heard of BP, since he seems to have a hearing problem.

The story and punch lines are writing themselves, as now he's saying he might not sell the stock.
