It’s safe to say that Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Wisconsin) is not the brightest bulb on the marquee. While a member of the Wisconsin state Senate, Grothman proposed putting an end to weekends, said sex education could turn kids gay, once issued a press release titled “Why Must We Still Hear About Kwanzaa?” and on one occasion wondered if people in the ‘70s even knew what homosexuality was: “I don’t remember any discussion about that at the time,” he stated. “There were a few guys who would make fun of a few effeminate boys, but that’s a different thing than homosexuality. Homosexuality was not on anyone’s radar. And that’s a good thing.”
So it’s no surprise that Republican voters in Wisconsin’s 6th District sent him to Congress. I mean, how could they not? He’s simply awful, and the Republican Party always homes in on the worst possible candidate. Badger State progressives better hope Hitler never comes back from the dead, because if he does, he’s moving to Wisconsin so his least-talented anal wart can primary Glenn Grothman.
