Seriously? Tommy Thompson won the primary? Who dumped Aricept in Wisconsin's water supply? I guess the voting populace is aged, and remembers Tommy's tenure as governor. He wasn't terrible, he just wasn't remarkable.
This is very good for Tammy Baldwin. Wisconsinites will have their choice between a liberal gay person who has done excellent work, or a relic of a sellout to the political flavor of the day in Tommy Thompson.
The choice is clear. Besides, shouldn't Thompson be collecting social security by now? First he thinks he can be president. Now he thinks he can be senator. What's next? Oh, I got it. Milwaukee County Parks Director.
