Vos nixes Cong. run; Churchill studies community relieved

WI GOP Assembly Speaker and aspiring Churchillian scholar Robin Vos

has decided not to run for the House seat held by evaporating House Speaker Paul Ryan.

This is a definite win-win, as it makes sure Vos doesn't end up in a demanding position above his pay grade - - seriously, Wisconsin has already sent Glenn Grothman to Washington: hasn't Bucky done its bit for elevated mediocrity? - -  and also allows him more time to bone up on his Winston Churchill, as he explained just yesterday when justifying accepting a free trip to London: 
Vos, an admirer of the British leader Winston Churchill, said it was reasonable for him as a state official to travel to England to learn about Churchill and global trade, even if lobbyists were there with him. 

"It's all an opportunity to learn," Vos said. "I think it's got a lot of value to it.”
So always the student, Vos can putter along at a reasonable pace, according to one of Churchill's maxims:
"Personally I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught."
