Patrick McIlheran, a columnist for the Journal Sentinel's op-ed page since 2004, is leaving the newspaper this week to take a job with Republican Sen. Ron Johnson's staff.It also proves the old adage of rats leaving a sinking ship.
McIlheran, who will work out of Johnson's Washington, D.C., office, will research issues and write about them for the senator. McIlheran also will work for the Subcommittee on Oversight of Government Management, the Federal Workforce, and the District of Columbia, of which Johnson is the ranking member.
I reckon that the first bit of research that old Paddy will need to do is show that sunspots are really the cause of all the world's ills.
But this leads to an interesting question: Who will the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel hire to become their new propagandist?
The most logical answer would be Rick Esenberg, who already is a frequent columnist for the paper, and their go to guy for legal spin.
But like I said, that would be logical, so it's not going to happen.
So who do you think it will be? One of the Badger Blogger Boyzzz? Daddio? Maybe Peter DiGaudio?
