There was a remarkable exchange yesterday morning between conservative talk-radio host Vicki McKenna of WISN and Republican senator Glenn Grothman.  Sen. Grothman was the senator who was captured on video on March 1 being attacked by progressive thugs.

That was the heart-felt plea Monday by Jay Weber, the morning host of News/Talk 1130 WISN, who remains of the view that President Obama is “an empty suit” who “isn’t all that bright” — “worst president ever, failing on every front . . . .”
