Sensenbrenner meets the enemy,

and it's the Assembly GOP

Republicans are eating their young at the state GOP convention, Mike Mathias says, and who's there to get a big helping but Jim Sensenbrenner.

We've got to get our metaphors straight, though. Mathias says Sensenbrenner "threw Assembly Speaker Mike Huebsch under a bus" by ripping on him for the budget repair bill the GOP Assembly recently passed.

But the headline says the GOP are "eating their young."

That would seem to suggest that Sensenbrenner is dining on roadkill.

Says the Recess Supervisor:
If Democrats are attacking Republicans and Republicans are also attacking Republicans, this is going to be one hell of an election season in Wisconsin. In throwing Huebsch under the bus (and for what, cheap applause?), Sensenbrenner once again proves that the only guy he cares about is Jim Sensenbrenner. He's just another wealthy pig with a nose for the populist breeze, constantly rooting out issues that he can use to exploit Joe and Jane Sixpack, all the while supporting tax policies that pad his own wallet.
We'll drink to that.

With so many potential metaphors, how could I settle on just one?

A good and decent man doesn't protect liars and cheats, no matter what party they hail from. Sensenbrenner is one of very few that do what is right.
