Back up criticism with facts, not name-calling

I don't know Carol Hodgson, who recently penned a letter to the editor. I suspect her political leanings are liberal/progressive. I believe that because, like many liberals/progressive, rather than stating a position using facts and logic, she attacks personally, in this case calling Sen. Ron Johnson a "simpleton." The Free Dictionary defines a simpleton as "a person who is felt to be deficient in judgment, good sense, or intelligence." Hodgson, here is how much of a "simpleton" Johnson is: He is a graduate of the University of Minnesota. After graduation he worked as an accountant for Jostens while he studied at night for his M.B.A. He moved to Wisconsin and began working for Pacur. For nearly a year he worked as the firm's accountant, and also worked on the shop floor as one of their machine operators. Twelve-hour days were the rule, not the exception. Later he managed the sales and financial aspects of the business, before ultimately purchasing the business. As a senator, he sits on four committees and eight sub-committees.

If you don't like Johnson's position stance on the Benghazi fiasco, or his performance as an elected official, you're entitled. It would be nice if you could back your position up with something other than inaccurate name-calling.
