Editorials I quit reading after the first sentence:
Leah Vukmir has gotten herself in another mess of her own making. The career politician who desperately wants to go to Washington …
“Career politician”? That would be Tammy Baldwin, would it not? As for Leah Vukmir, she worked more than 20 years as a certified pediatric nurse practitioner, receiving her nursing degree from Marquette University in 1980 and her master’s degree in nursing from UW Madison in 1983. She was only elected to the legislature in 2002, at age 44.
O.K., I read the rest of “Vukmir should stop lying about Baldwin’s handling of Kavanaugh’s pick” in, where else, The Capital Times. The lengthy jeremiad never gets around to identifying the supposed lie but we extrapolate that Vukmir charges Baldwin with a knee-jerk rejection. The Capital Times tip toes around that inconvenient truth, disclaiming that “Baldwin examined Kavanaugh’s record and quickly determined she could not support his nomination.”
Quickly, indeed! Politifact notes that Baldwin came out against both Kavanaugh and Gorsuch before meeting with them. Three days after Kavanaugh’s nomination was announced, in fact. But she did meet with Obama nominee Merrick Garland.
Nonetheless, The Capital Times prostitutes itself saying “Baldwin’s approach to the Kavanugh nomination has been serious and thoughtful.”
If you say so.
“Career politician” !!!!
