Glenn Grothman: The Agitator. A nice bio.

I was a moderate everywhere else in the universe, until I moved into Glenn's district where Glenn's described me as an atheistic baby killer.

Whoops, I mean a communistic atheistic baby killer. :^)

But the Isthmus does a nice job on our local plutocrat and demagogue.

Including some choice examples of Glenn's commitment to thoughtfulness.

The wit and wisdom of Glenn Grothman
On the good old days: "Homosexuality was not on anybody's radar. And that's a good thing." (As quoted in The Capital Times, Feb. 11, 2010)
On government waste: "I've interviewed over a dozen people who check out people who pay with food stamps and all felt people on food stamps ate better — or at least more costly — than they did." (Grothman opinion column, April 14, 2004)
On holidays: "Hallmark sells Kwanzaa cards. The Post Office sells Kwanzaa stamps. The rest of us should treat Kwanzaa with the contempt it deserves before it becomes a permanent part of our culture." (Opinion column, Dec. 9, 2003)
On the threat to America: "In this country, can we continue to exist if we have a government that is actively discouraging businesses from hiring men? Our country is not going to survive if we continue this war on men." (Tea Party speech, Aug. 7, 2010)
On the UW-Madison: "There are all sorts of people who are conservatives who want to be history professors or journalism professors and they're scared to death they won't get tenure because people on the other end of State Street don't want to hear the truth." (Remarks at "Rally for Marriage" rally, July 28, 2010)
On the UW's diversity mandates: "Does the university hate white men?" (Press release, March 5, 2009)
On stem-cell research: "Some people enjoy creating babies to experiment on, but I don't." (As quoted in Isthmus, Jan. 21, 2011)
