Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Republican Wisconsin State Senator Glenn Grothman is regarded as one of the most conservative state legislators in the entire country.

He's also a nutcase.

After soundly defeating Democratic challenger Tanya Lohr last week in his re-election bid, Grothman told Madison-based radio talk show host John Slyvester that Barack Obama won re-election to the Presidency and Tammy Baldwin won Wisconsin's open U.S. Senate seat thanks to "fraud". However, Grothman gave one last parting shot at Lohr, claiming that the New World Order was behind her campaign!

Grothman's bizarre claim is a blatantly false conspiracy theory. Apparently, Grothman was set off by the fact that a woman from Maryland named "Anne" donated $600 to Lohr's campaign. I thought that Scott Fitzgerald's claim that Lori Compas's husband was behind her campaign was downright sexist, but Glenn Grothman claiming that the New World Order is after him because some woman from Maryland donated $600 to Tanya Lohr's campaign tells me that Grothman is a paranoid nutcase who will say anything to draw attention to himself.

I feel sorry for any progressive-minded person who is "represented" or has ever been "represented" by Glenn Grothman.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Fri Nov 16, 2012 at  8:47 AM PT: Tanya Lohr, Glenn Grothman's Democratic opponent in last week's WI-SD-20 election, responded to Grothman's bizarre claim that the New World Order was after him: "This interview with my former opponant (sic) is both baffling and concerning. At this point in his political career, Mr. Grothman should know that people have to list their place of employment when they donate $100 or more to a campaign. That's

why my sister-in-law, Anne, listed her place of employment, the Council on Foreign Relations, when she made donations to my campaign. And the Council on Foreign Relations is not a secret member of The New World Order. It is a nonpartisan think tank in D.C. that works on foreign issues. They have a website at www.cfr.org. You should check it out - they do fantastic work! I'm very proud that my sister-in-law works there."
