Ron Johnson is one of the most Inactive members of the U.S senate

Ron Johnson. It’s a name you know you’re supposed to recognize: it means something to you, somewhere, floating in the back of your head. It has some importance in your life, or it should, and you struggle to piece together who that guy was anyways. Read the rest
