Posted: July 17, 2014 at 4:00 pm

MILWAUKEE--The people who came out to see Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., at his town hall meeting in the Milwaukee suburb of Menomonee Falls this past weekend were angry and resentful. The immigration crisis, they worried, is threatening their way of life. “Who were these people trying to sneak into the country, and why wasn’t the government doing more to keep them out or send them back?” they would ask.

Gwen’s Take: Take a tablespoon of policy, add a dash of politics and mix well.

I believe it has been well established in this space that I like politics and generally respect politicians.

Sometimes, however, it is a challenge.

Take Brian Schweitzer. Please.

Had a bad week? One that made you cry? One where you got smacked sideways by a setback you never saw coming?

John Boehner has some advice for you: change the subject.
