When you hear the name “Charlie Wilson,” you probably think of Tom Hanks drinking, carousing, and trying to fund the Afghans between hangovers.
But there’s another Charlie Wilson in Congress, a two-term Democratic incumbent who we wish had the charm and tough-on-communism instincts of the legendary Texas lawmaker. No, this Charlie Wilson, representing a district that runs along Ohio’s southeastern border, has a lifetime ACU rating of 12.67 and voted for the stimulus, card check, and Obamacare. And he’s done this in an R+2 district, no less.
This can be fixed. Bill Johnson is a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel and successful entrepreneur who has founded two companies.
He’s been endorsed by all the right folks — National Right to Life PAC, SarahPAC, and the now-infamous U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Help him out. And together, we can keep the name Charlie Wilson associated with proud, hard-drinking communist-haters.
UPDATE: Well, it turned out to be quite the bad day for Wilson. Read this.
