Glenn Grothman: scores an "F" On Police Association Scorecard

From our friends over at The Political Environment

Glenn's economic paradigm is already at work eroding public education. Maybe he's finally getting around to removing police, fire, and water from the state budget too?

The WPPA has been taken over by your liberal buddies.

That's why you get the scorecard you cite.

Good try though.

I interviewed Grothman and his words can be found near the end of this article I wrote for The Scene newspaper:


Not sure what you do or don't agree with.

Anon: I love the idea of liberal cops. It shows they've understood the law.

Mr Schmitt: I enthusiastically agree with your sentiment that power must always and forever be questioned.

And he's completely right that *had* Obama actually said he wanted a national police force, it would have been a bad thing. Personally, I'd be storming the Bastille and putting up barricades too.... but that isn't what Obama said -- and I suspect Glenn knows it. And that's the end of that.

Years ago, when he was still talking to me, Glenn and I had a conversation that began with Glenn saying "well Mark, seriously, isn't it the case that the government always spends too much?" And I asked "on what, specifically?" He couldn't tell me primarily, I suspect, because he thinks any government spending is too much.

That is not the case. QED.

Anyway, that's where I stand on it. On any political tests I usually end up in the left wing libertarian quadrant.
