Who’s raising the big stink in Wisconsin? Just some unemployed poser slobs according to State Senator Glenn Grothman:
Well, we’re trying to keep some people out of the building because right now the building is becoming a pig sty. People are staying overnight, the building smells. We used to have nice little groups of fourth grade children walking through the building. There was something called the Senate Scholar programs that would track us around. All of that is being shut down by a bunch of slobs taking up the building. We can no longer continue to have all of these slobs in the building.” h/t Nonnie
Just think if Grothman was a school administrator deciding a nonunion slob teacher’s raise. Awesome.
Before Grothman called hard-working Wisconsinites slobs, he was involved in an incident where demonstrators chanting “Shame, shame, shame!” and I distinctly heard some “fuck you’s” (at 2:10) surrounded and sort of corralled him until a Democratic colleague came and rescued his frightened ass. Protesters were locked out of the capitol building and apparently Grothman was, too.
He says he wasn’t scared and has actually given an even-handed account of the event to Fox News.
I’m pretty sure he had to change his Depends. Who is he trying to save face for? It’s not like this guy has been laid in 30 years.
But in keeping with the “Obama’s Union Thugging” theme, Fox News is using file video of maybe a protest in Los Angeles?
No palm trees in Wisconsin. Just saying.
Grothman ain’t sorry.
