Another installment of "When ideological purity trumps common sense."
Here's what Glenn said this week -- about Tommy Thompson this time.
[The former Governor was missing from last week's Conservative Political Action Conference beauty contest for the Republican presidential candidates.]
Craig Gilbert in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel online writes:
"I think it's a great year for a dark horse," said Wisconsin state Sen. Glenn Grothman, referring to the "question marks" conservatives have about the frontrunners.
Asked whether Thompson could be his conservative "dark horse," the West Bend lawmaker said, "I'm looking for a conservative. . . . Tommy's not a conservative."
Tommy's not a conservative?
I'd love to try, but there's no way I can top this.
