Here's an interesting thought:
Republicans talk about core values : La Crosse TribuneIt would be good news for this cata(b)logue of the Senator's ideological Adventures in Wonderland... but it would also be good for a subtler reason.
Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker was the overwhelming favorite for governor in 2010, according to a straw poll of delegates to the State Republican Convention.
Superior Mayor Dave Ross got 147 votes for lieutenant governor, compared with Sen. Glenn Grothman of West Bend, who got 109 votes. Grothman has been touted as a possible candidate, although he hasn’t said whether he would run. [my italics]
I've always believed that if people actually knew about the things Senator Grothman said, embarrassment or the ballot box would eventually force him to stop saying them. I could be completely wrong, of course -- it's just a hypothesis.
As usual, my favorite local blog, Illusory Tenant has made some worthwhile observations.
