A Warning for Ron Johnson, Ribble, and Duffy

Erik Erickson has a few words of wisdom for Ron Johnson.

...expecting to pick up a number of seats by “newbies,” what do GOP leaders in Washington want to ensure? They want “GOP insiders to staff outsiders,” according to Roll Call.

...Having worked on the Hill, I can tell you that new members would be better off telling leadership to stuff it. ...This is about making sure the “newbies” do not rock the boat and get with the program… the Washington establishment’s program. The staff that the establishment will “suggest” to the new members will be the same freaking idiots who have been bouncing around the Hill forever and will be more likely to go along to get along - to continue the same way Washington has been working forever. Just take a look at top Republican offices - they are a bunch of re-treads from years past, Administrations past - and for those of us who have been in the trenches fighting for conservatism, let me just say that we have more often been fighting against them than with them.

As RoJo undoubtedly knows, the single most important individual in his Senate office will be the secretary/receptionist. That person likely should have Hill experience, because that sergeant will run the Army.

All the rest? Weight it heavily with Conservative people from Wisconsin who understand that the MOST important question to ask is "Cui bono"? The answer must be "the American people."

Any questions, see Jim Sensenbrenner.
