Ron Johnson has regularly chosen to serve his forever Dear Leader - a reflexive obeisance noted often on this blog - though Wisconsin taxpayers pay Johnson nearly $15,000 monthly for public service he's redefined as one-note deference to the nation's only twice-impeached-and-once-one-term defeated President.
Which means Johnson has chosen to substitute an unapologetic commitment to the dangerous, seditionist fringe for what should be his first, sworn obligation - upholding the Constitution through representation for Wisconsin citizens in the Congress.
That basic obligation should be the obvious, uncontested priority for any public official, especially during economic peril and a viral pandemic - yet you cannot spot that basic commitment in Johnson's high-profile public appearances where his partisan preoccupation with irrationalities is getting more frequent and downright scary.
What else can you conclude after seeing Johnson on Fox Sunday suggest - without evidence and common sense - that US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was responsible for the murderous January 6th attempted coup and attack on the Capitol even though she was being hunted by a mob whose shock troops wanted to put a bullet in her head.

So let's face it: Wisconsin at the very time it needs complete representation in Washington is down to only one Senator now - Democrat Tammy Baldwin - because the other Senator seems to have brokered his soul and moral compass for a tax break, nothing more.
And unless Wisconsin voters say otherwise, Johnson could extend this damaging representational deficit and distortion into 2029 because he won't say if he'll keep his public pledge to step away after two terms.
Though The Lincoln Project has already put Johnson notice that its effort to purge the Republican Party of extremist actors includes a pledge to hold Johnson accountable, and to his word.
So stay tuned.
