Our low-wattage US Senator gets a tough series of questions from a Nicolet High School student and comes back with a condescendingly weak comeback.
From Glendale NOW:
"You talked about just because you have money and are successful you should be able to spend it any way you want, but what happens when you live in a country with a million people who all have one dollar in their hand and you have one man who has a million dollars," the student asked. "Would you not say that that man and his million dollars stretches farther than everybody else? Doesn't he control the government? Shouldn't we put a limit on that?"
Johnson maintained his position.
"No, because those million people can all band together and give a dollar and have the same rights of free speech....I don't see money as a huge threat in the political process, particularly in the age of the Internet," he said.And advising the students at highly-rated Nicolet to stay in school and graduate is a little like telling Sierra Club members not to litter at the Grand Canyon.
Some things do not need to be said out loud.
Tip to RoJo: Know you audience.
