A long time ago, I used to watch prize fights on TV. I was partly drawn in by the candor of color commentators like Gil Clancy and Angelo Dundee. I remember a mismatched fight where the generic, all purpose sportscaster turned to Clancy and asked, "What does (over-classed fighter) need to do?"
Clancy replied earnestly, "He needs to learn another profession."
That is my message for Kelly Ayotte and Ron Johnson and Mark Kirk and the other 21 GOP senators facing re-election in November. If you cannot defeat this corrupt and contemptible Democrat Party, if you cannot defeat Lois Lerner and Jonathan Gruber and Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch and Richard Windsor and Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills and Jonathan Koskinen, you need to find another profession.
So you object, ever so innocently. "But those people are not on the ballot."
Then put them on the ballot! If you want to win, you must stand for something and you must stand against something else. Take a stand against the most corrupt and dishonest and abusive and yes the most criminal administration in history. You have the golden opportunity to run against the only anti-American administration in history. Don't let this chance pass you by!
Your opponents are a bunch of thugs who have both disgusted and frightened the American people. You can listen to the consultant class like the 16 candidates not named Donald Trump did in the presidential primaries. You might win and you might not. Or you can go rogue like Trump and rail against a rigged system and crooked adversaries. The choice is yours.
Ron Johnson, you are particularly fortunate. If you need issues, read Kimberly Strassels' "The Intimidation Game." There is a chapter on the abuse of John Doe warrants by Democratic officials in Wisconsin. The term "Orwellian" understates the brazen thugocracy instituted by Milwaukee County DA, John Chisholm. And you have the luxury of running against uber-fascist, Russ Feingold, the man who helped lay the groundwork for Democrat attacks on political speech.
The little people put you in office in 2010. Remember them? They have thoughts, concerns, grievances, passions and fears. Have you addressed any of these? If no, you still have time to redeem yourself. You can listen to the consulting class telling you how to lose or you can take off the gloves and demolish the glass-jawed monster. It's up to you.
Two thirds of the country thinks we are on the wrong track. Need to find something to disgust and repulse the populace? Democrat Party vintage 2016 will gladly provide it.
If you cannot win in this environment, you need to find another profession.
