Do Feingold supporters really want to go there?
Most of us are familiar enough with US Senate candidate Ron Johnson’s biography to know that he’s a successful businessman who helped make Pacur into a thriving plastics company in Wisconsin. Unfortunately the scorn of the political left knows no bounds, and they’re even accusing Johnson of marrying into his fortune (never mind the growth of the company under Johnson’s leadership).
The reality is that Ron Johnson lucked-out by marrying Howard Curler’s daughter, but that doesn’t make him an entrepreneur and a business-dynamo, that makes him lucky.
This really is par for the course for Democrats who see anyone that has actually built a business as somehow undeserving of the success they achieve. Maybe Democrats get the idea from Senator John Kerry who lives rather well off the Heinz fortune.
However, do Wisconsin Democrats really want to go into whether or not Johnson was “lucky” in whom he married (for over 30 years)? Which of Senator Russ Feingold’s three wives was the lucky charm for him? Or will it be number four? After all, the plural of spouse is “spice” and right now Feingold is on a pace to pass Larry King. I would assume that Feingold supporters would be doing everything they can to keep a candidate’s personal life off limits. Yet Feingold and his supporters keep going back to mentioning Johnson’s personal life.
They must really be desperate.
