Its not about Mittens
Really, if you think about it, ONE delegate will not change history. It doesn’t change the running count in any significant manner, and frankly it’s effect is limited and about moot at this point. But the the ability of the Michigan Republicans to trust leadership is at risk right now. In fact, if one was to place an ear to the ground, they would hear | Read More »
Fox News and Now …?
Politics can sometimes be amusing. In an attempt to lighten it up for a bit, I wanted to highlight an oops found over at a major news outlet. Over the years I have marveled at how the super fast moving news network Fox News could have so many misspellings, wrong story and title mismatches, so imagine my major yawn when I found this picture. (H/T | Read More »
Detroit Michigan RIP
Wanted to pass along this obituary from RightMichigan.com just in case no one was paying attention. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news folks, she was a fine Gal. Detroit Is Dead. Detroit, Michigan, The “motor city”, jewel of the mid-west, manufacturing magnet, and dominator of automotive excellence for multiple decades passed of cancer during the night. She was 310 years old. Born in | Read More »

Media Whipped Republicans
And now conservatives? The first three supposed ‘victims’ of Cain’s as yet unexplained dalliances were enough to titillate media whores into a tizzy. For obvious reasons, supporters of other Republican primary candidates rubbed their hands and secretly wish for it to play out (and quickly) with Cain ending his campaign and fading into the Georgia sunset. How convenient that would be. But Herman had the | Read More »
The Traverse City Neck Tie
OK the certificate has been presented, and the issue presumably over. It still doesn’t stop those who are supposed to be discovering these things from taking a parting shot at those who would DARE ask the questions to make it over. You may have heard of the “Columbian neck tie?” Our local newspaper, the Traverse City Record Eagle, wears its own tolerance of free speech | Read More »
The day after the Vinson ruling, it became very clear to me that this entire process has been planned. Thomas Crown’s piece fronted by Moe Lane today, reinforces my belief that a severability clause that should be found in legislation of such magnitude was purposefully absent. After that ruling, I wrote: Folks watching the slow motion train wreck known as the health care bill have | Read More »
Happy Birthday Mr President.
No politician that I am aware, has elicited the fondness from both sides of the political spectrum as Ronald Reagan. Often, the praise exhibited by those on the left is that which describes him as a President who got along and compromised with Democrats. And often, the praise from the right is that which recognizes his stalwart conservatism. To be sure he was solidly conservative. | Read More »

In a somewhat interesting twist.. Independent spoiler candidate Glenn Wilson thanks the Democrats for spending PAC money on his behalf. The Wilson Campaign released this: “The Glenn Wilson campaign would like to thank the Michigan Democratic | Read More »
CD1 – Don’t Be Fooled
To my Tea Partying friends. If ever there was a time to break out the thinking cap, it is now. Obviously we want limited government, we want the restoration of power to the people and not politicians. We are concerned that Washington is not listening to us, and that government has grown too large and cumbersome. There is no doubt where most of us stand… | Read More »
Michigan Fake Tea Party Over
The Michigan drama involving the Fake Tea Party has been brought to a close. The Michigan Appeals Court has denied the donkeys their pet distraction. From the Detroit News: “In light of the plaintiff’s failure to strictly comply with the requirements (of state election law), plaintiff fails to establish a clear legal duty on the part of the defendant to certify the petition,” the court | Read More »
Fake Tea Flushed In Michigan
The fake tea party in Michigan has been dealt a pretty serious blow, and will have to pursue its ambition to deceive voters by taking its case to court, represented by one Michael Hodge. Michigan Capitol Confidential reports: Mark Steffek, the man who formed The Tea Party and was described by the Detroit Free Press as a former union steward, was not present. However, dozens | Read More »
So incredibly BUSTED.
Fake is one thing, but possible criminal fraud is another thing entirely. One of the five candidates for the Michigan Secretary of State positions has announced today that she has discovered one of the fake tea candidates did not even know he was on the ballot. Ohhhh.. Snaap. In a late afternoon press release, Ruth Johnson, a clerk for Oakland county discusses an issue with | Read More »
The Michigan GOP Gets It.
There has been no question the Tea Party activity has had REAL effect in several elections already. There has been no question that a singular point, in the manner of a third party would be counter productive to conservatives and tea party attendee goals. So there was SOME question as to why the MSM might commission a study that would indicate 23% of the folks | Read More »
Hot Stock Buy or GM IPO Head Scratcher
Potential GM Stock buyers? Don’t get your hopes up yet. Not that anybody should expect an industry that still has a shock collar of union interest around its neck to do very well anyway. General Motors is selling some of its prime action to lucky buyers. As seen in the filing of the IPO today, GM lowers your expectations: “The ability of our new executive | Read More »
Jason Allen Honorably Concedes The 1st Congressional District Race
Jason Allen has decided to NOT pursue a recount process in the race for the 1st congressional district, which he had a 15 vote deficit. I was fortunate to talk with Jason about this difficult decision. In his decision, Allen notes the expense for both campaigns through a recount process lessens the opportunity that a conservative would gain the seat, and that further divisiveness within | Read More »
The party of lies does it again.
We have seen them do it with gun rights, where THEY formed a fake organization that claimed to be representative of gun owners, but was merely an attempt to weaken the NRA. We have seen it with the election of 2008, when “Republicans for Obama” showed up in a manner that suggested even RINO republicans could vote for a hard core socialist. It was THEM | Read More »
Michigan Governor Diva Attacks AG Cox
Granholm Calls On AG To GRRR…Do Something – Reposted at RightMichigan.Com The executive Diva is mad. Governor Granholm says Attorney General Mike Cox does not have the constitutional authority on his own to unilaterally decide the state’s position on the issue of healthcare reform.

Pimp My Donkey..
Sorry in advance if inappropriate.. Since everything I know seems to be wrong lately, it wouldn’t at all surprise me that I might possibly post something offensive, or of off subject matter in any one of my recent articles. I had to do this.. if at least for the laugh that is sorely needed. I have never seen a situation more dire in my lifetime | Read More »
If all goes well…
Republican Scott Brown is going to win a US Senate seat in Massachusetts today. Despite the state of Massachusetts being heavily Democrat, the seat formerly held by Ted Kennedy, with all the power and money of the unions, well wishes by MSM etc.. and pushing the Democrat Martha Coakley forward, a Republican for the first time in multiple decades may occupy a senate seat in | Read More »
Barney is Frankly out of his mind..
And so are 223 other Democrats who voted to pass HR4173, the “Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” which has been read front to back by Bloomberg’s David Reilly. Reilly has discovered “nuggets” for the Wall street bankers (somehow the word “nugget” and Barney Frank do seem to coalesce quite nicely) are quite rewarding in this Frank sponsored, 1200+ page sugar cookie. Reilly notes: | Read More »
