Paul Nehlen is trying to unseat Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.
Nothing wrong with Nehlen having a huge vehicle with his supporters and signage. But Nehlen apparently flunked Holiday Parade 101. You put politics aside and take the high road.
Nehlen had at least one sign that spewed propaganda. And a fellow at the very back of the entourage was yelling, “Down with corporate welfare.”
Walk or ride the route. Shake hands. Pass out brochures and/or buttons. But ditch the rhetoric.
In my area Nehlen got zero cheers or hand claps. He got no reaction at all.
The same was true for Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm. At least he kept politics back at the office.
