During an interview with MIRS news service yesterday, Kerry Bentivolio said he is “seriously considering” a run as a write-in candidate in the November General Election to be reelected as the Congressman for Michigan’s 11th District:

Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R), one of four sitting members of Congress to lose in a primary this year, says he is “seriously considering” waging a write-in campaign in November.

In an interview with the Michigan news outlet MIRS, Bentivolio said he has decided to write his name on the ballot and is weighing whether he will actively encourage others to do the same.

“I know what I’m doing.

The Michigan Republican Party is looking for a few good young men and women to exploit and take one for the team!

Do you enjoy wearing super-secret spy glasses to secretly record Democrats being Democrats? Do you have mad skillz posing as a CNN reporter? Can you pull off pretending to be a Schauer supporter and offering to volunteer for a statewide Democratic gubernatorial campaign? Are you willing to be thrown under the bus by the Michigan Republican Party if you get busted doing any of this stuff, possibly ending any chance at a career in politics?

If so, the Michigan GOP wants YOU!!!

The Michigan Republican Party is currently looking for Interns!

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to witness and learn the inner-workings of the Michigan Republican Party at our office headquarters in Lansing, work out of our other regional office locations, meet elected officials, attend special “behind-the-scene” events, and more.

VIDEO: Want to go see Terri Lynn Land speak without an invite? Good luck with that. Here’s what it looks like.

Not much to add to this except that Terri Lynn Land and her handlers are very clearly petrified that someone might get a video of her speaking in public because we all know how well THAT usually goes. No wonder staffers from a Koch brothers front group are saying, “Michigan is a state that’s basically an uphill climb honestly.”

Uphill climb? That’s putting it mildly.

GOP launches another failed attempt to deceive voters about Democrats, target Pam Byrnes

Republicans know they are in deep trouble across our country. Their popularity is plummeting — their “unfavorable” rating is nearly 50% — largely thanks to efforts to stop people from voting, attacks on women and the LGBT community, and for making sure government doesn’t work and then blaming that on Democrats. In response, they have turned to deceptive strategies intended to deceive voters about their candidates.

Their most recent foray involves the creation of fake news websites attacking Democrats and designed to look like popular newspaper sites:

The National Republican Congressional Committee, which came under fire earlier this year for a deceptive series of fake Democratic candidate websites that it later changed after public outcry, has launched a new set of deceptive websites, this time designed to look like local news sources.

New hashtag to celebrate Rick Snyder’s tone deafness: #JustLikeTheDetroitFlood

Yesterday, Michigan Governor Snyder compared a hole in the roof of his $1.1 million “lake house” mansion (one of two mansions he owns) to the devastating impacts of the recent historical flood in Detroit.

I’ve been through a lot of things like that, Frank. We just recently had holes in our roof from storm damage to our lake house. We have a vacation place and we had a limb come down on the roof and had water running through the whole place; those experiences are not pleasant ones and they had to take some trees down.

To celebrate, I’ve launched a new Twitter hastag: #JustLikeTheDetroitFlood.…

Michigan GOP’s “spy glasses” effort hits paydirt and it’s (predictably) hilarious

Facing withering national ridicule for their botched Party-wide effort to spy on Democrats with super-secret spy glasses and create “gotcha!” moments in the campaign, the Michigan Republican Party released a video showing the Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer advising people not to cross over to vote in GOP primaries after he himself voted in the 2012 GOP primary.

The Detroit News appears to be the only major news outlet to have taken the bait. [CORRECTION: Politico also also took the bait. But then, well, it's Politico...]

It’s obvious why nobody else is paying any attention to this. President Obama ran unopposed in 2012, giving Democrats the opportunity to vote in their opponents’ primary.…

Terri Lynn Land’s “Really” ad gets shredded by GOP pollster Frank Luntz: “THE worst ad of the political process”

There’s little doubt that Michiganders being “treated” to Terri Lynn Land’s comically funny “Really?” ad know it to be the complete and utter and laughable failure that it is. What you may not know is that it has gotten national attention for how terrible it is, too.

On Fox News (yes, FOX NEWS!), Republican pollster and adviser Frank Luntz tore into Land’s ad, calling it “THE worst ad of the political process.” To add insult to injury, he refers to Land as “Terri Land Lynn”.

LOL:

Frank Luntz: [00:00] … that’s the best ad.

Steve Doocy: You got a stink bomb of the season?

UPDATED w/VIDEO: More proof that Terri Lynn Land, The Michigan Embarrassment, is out of her league

If you need any further proof that The Michigan Embarrassment, Terri Lynn Land, is out of her league in running for the U.S. Senate, this is it:

A gaggle of reporters, photographers and cameramen clamored to get in a few questions to the former Secretary of State after the forum on Mackinac Island where she and U.S. Rep. Gary Peters, D-Bloomfield Township, separately offered their thoughts on issues, the race to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Carl Levin and stories about their lives.

She didn’t want to do the traditional media scrum, a normal fixture for politicians where reporters gather round in tight quarters and throw questions at the candidate.

Today is the day of my actual 10-year blogging anniversary – see my humble beginnings

Although we held our 10-year Blogaversary party last Thursday on May Day, today is the actual anniversary of my very first blog post. Yup, that’s me. With hair.

My first blog was on a site called Modblog and you can view my very first, utterly lame post HERE.

If this doesn’t get your attention, I could …

… just…
… disappear…

Right?

*ahem*

OK.

It’s like this: I like to write. I like to express myself. BUT! I have a really hard time doing this when I don’t have an audience, I pretty much just sit there in front of the keyboard with zero inspiration.
