It takes a career pol to know one

Meanwhile, back at the  farm now that we all know it's Paul Ryan:

We are amused by all of those Josh Mandel TV ads accusing Sen. Sherrod Brown of being a "career politician".

Career politician?  Look who's talking.   At the whiz kid age of 34, Mandel has already managed a succession  of political jobs as (1) Lyndhurst City Councilman (2) Ohio state representative and (3) currently, Ohio Treasurer.  Given his urge for higher and higher offices,  he may run out of available new rungs on his political ladder by the age of 40.  Either that, or his financiers will run out of campaign money.

It wouldn't at all be an exaggeration to note that Josh has  already made a career of his career.

A wise journalist once told me that once a person runs for dog-catcher he becomes a self-styled candidate for president. Political ambition, in other words, is unquenchable. In Josh's case, though he's not likely to admit it publicly, he's lusting to shoot for the moon. As long as he has the financial backing of the billionaire barons, who's to say he can't make it? There's a new age now in American politics. Thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court's benighted Citizens United decision, an ambitious, lavishly backed fellow like Josh can hope to buy the office.
