State Rep. Robin Vos Wins Clunky Quote Of The Year Award

Or maybe it's The Grandiosity Prize: you be the judge.

Robin Vos is a Wisconsin Republican State Assemblyman from Burlington, the co-chairman of the budget committee, an opponent of commuter rail, former roommates with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, and the owner several businesses, including RoJo's, a popcorn-making firm - - but a talented wordsmith (or perhaps sagacious manager/editor of staff research?) he is not.

This is Vos' contribution to a long Sunday Journal Sentinel Sunday piece on the politics of rail transit:

"It is the job of every generation to be the Van Helsing who slays the vampire that sucks the taxpayers' blood - that is, the train," said state Rep. Robin Vos (R-Rochester), a leading rail transit opponent. 
The Grandiosity Prize is suggested by his Van Helsing reference.

He's the Assembly leadership's choice to serve as Finance Committee co-chair.

You slay those evil vampires Mr. Popcorn. Who's going to slay the road builders that suck my taxpaying blood dry?
FYI -tried Rojo's popcorn at the tire dealership and frankly found it way too salty and what is that yellow stuff on it?
