Ron Johnson: Nuke, baby, nuke

Republican Senate candidate Ron Johnson outlines his energy policy for Wisconsin:

Drill, baby, drill, and nuke, baby, nuke.

That's remarkably consistent.  He's for drilling under the Great Lakes and building more nuclear reactors while high-level radioactive waste continues to pile up on the shores of Lake Michigan. 

The Journal Sentinel, on a forum with Johnson and primary opponent David Westlake:

Johnson, an Oshkosh business owner, supported a "full steam" ahead approach to developing nuclear power plants.

Obviously, the disaster in the Gulf gives Johnson no pause about the likelihood of an even bigger catastrophe that is almost certain, sooner or later, to occur at a nuclear reactor if we keep building them.
