Obama the Radioactive


When President Barack Obama visits Milwaukee on Labor Day to talk to working families and members of dozens of labor unions, one prominent politician won't be there.

A Labor Day schedule put out by the staff of U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) indicates that, while Feingold will be in Milwaukee earlier in the day for a Milwaukee Laborfest Pre-Parade on Monday morning, he will not be in town when Obama is expected to arrive.

Yesterday, the NYTimes prints an interview with Feinie in which he claims that Obama is being persecuted (poor thing) by Mysterious Forces, and that's really what is driving the defeats of (among others) Bob Bennett (R) and Lisa Murkowski (R).


But his conspiracy-bleating is as close as he'll get to standing beside his Poor Persecuted President.
