Wanna meet another one of our Wisconsin dingbats?

It is incredible that these guys can even put one foot in front of the other, much less run the country.....Meet:

U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman has been living off of government assistance since 1993—first as a Wisconsin State Assembly member, then as a Wisconsin state senator, and now as Wisconsin’s representative from the 6th Congressional District. He does not think anyone should receive government assistance. He also thinks as a never-married, childless man, he can dole out advice on both subjects.

Let’s recap some of Grothman’s greatest hits over the years: he called the protesters occupying the Wisconsin State Capitol “slobs.” He is against 4-year-olds entering kindergarten because, "Recent studies have confirmed that any academic benefits of government-funded preschool disappear by the fourth grade”—a claim rated as false by Politifact. When asked about equal pay, he stated:

"You could argue that money is more important for men. I think a guy in their first job, maybe because they expect to be a breadwinner someday, may be a little more money-conscious. To attribute everything to a so-called bias in the workplace is just not true,”

Not only is this statement misogynistic, it has also been debunked by multiple studies on the subject (and it’s no wonder he has never been married).

His statements on homosexuality are—oh, where to begin?

You can read about them here, here, here, and here. When not coming up with off-the-wall made up crap about gay people, he says that single parents are responsible for child abuse (as a single parent, that one really irritated me). He thinks that unplanned pregnancies are solely the choice of women, a clear signal that he needs to take a remedial biology class.

Representative Grothman also does not believe that Martin Luther King Day should be a holiday, and says giving state workers that day off is an "is an insult to all the other taxpayers around the state." His feelings on Kwanzaa? He calls it "the supposed African-American holiday celebration” and says it should be "slapped down."
His deep thoughts on affirmat

2. Yep - we have some real doozies

And this is from the state that offered up Aldo Leopold, John Muir, Gaylord Nelson, Bob LaFollette, just to name a few. Please let us forget forever - McCarthy, Walker, Ryan, Grothman and too many more who crawled out from under rocks with the ascendance of the Repubs.
