An apology to Glenn Grothman

I'd said, only partially tongue-in-cheek, that Glenn Grothman could become the next Michele Bachmann, the Tea Party leader and now ex-Congresswoman from Minnesota.

I'd forgotten that Scott Walker had told CNN he was "the original Tea Party in Wisconsin," so what was I thinking? Consider that:

*  Bachmann has said the minimum wage was an expendable negative:
Bachmann reiterated her long-held belief that a federally mandated minimum wage is a job-killing federal regulation that may need to be abolished.
*  Scott Walker on the minimum wage:
Scott Walker says he doesn't believe minimum wage "serves a purpose"
*  And:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker lashed out Thursday against Democratic proposals to raise the minimum wage, calling them a “political grandstanding stunt” that will kill jobs.
