What’s the opposite of a victory lap? Why would Mitt Romney think he has any chance of winning Michigan? It’s hard to remember this now, but Mitt Romney only won the Michigan GOP primary by a margin of 3%. Rick Santorum basically gave Mitt the Michigan primary and the nomination by saying JFK made him “want to puke.” Mitt, the […]Read more ›
Shake, shake, shake… In his ongoing effort to obliterate his past and recreate a new vision of himself, Mitt Romney has again revised history. This time, it’s HIS story, the one where he used to say “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt”. In an interview published today in the Detroit News, Romney now says the federal government should have helped the domestic […]Read more ›
Ahhh…so THAT’S why he wants to be the president…
It’s no secret that Mitt Romney’s run for the presidency is heavily financed and supported by the 0.1%. They stand to gain a great deal if he is elected. But a recent analysis by two groups, Citizens for Tax Justice (a liberalish group) and Tax Foundation (a conservatish group) suggest that maybe there’s as much in it for Mitt Romney as there is for his wealthy pals.
If Barack Obama is elected, his tax plan will cost Mitt Romney $5 million per year.Read more ›

Mitt can hide, but he can’t run Mitt Romney has finally found something to improve his record-low approval ratings: hiding. By focusing on schmoozing with donors and keeping his “Let me explain why your layoff/foreclosure is good for the economy” tone and smirk off of television, he’s brought his approval rating to 48 percent. That’s still well below the President […]Read more ›
This isn’t any better…
There’s a lot of laughing and giggling and guffawing bout the utter failure of Congressman Thad McCotter. Since it was discovered that almost 90% of the signatures he turned in to get on the August primary ballot were invalid, he has now dropped out of the race and won’t be running a write-in campaign.
Unfortunately, the guy who did make the ballot is as bad or worse than McCotter.Read more ›
Run away! Run away! My piece last week titled “Is Democrat Steve Pestka buying Facebook “Likes” for his MI-03 campaign page?” ended up making a pretty big splash. It got picked up by Mario Aguilar at Gizmodo and then John Aravosis at AMERICAblog. Both pieces took Pestka to task for what seems to clearly be a purchase of Facebook likes […]Read more ›
I’m tellin’ y’all, it’s a sabotage Last Friday, the Labor Department announced that the US economy had created 69,000 jobs in May. That’s 58,000 more jobs than George W. Bush’s monthly average of creating 11,000 jobs a month, according to economist Justin Wolfers who claims he did something called “math.” But the GOP reacted as if President had just taken […]Read more ›

The event was originally started by one of Michigan’s finest bloggers, Mark Maynard from MarkMaynard.com. This is the two of us. I’m the one on the right with…Read more ›
Republicans have been getting their news from clowns for years As @LOLGOP, I try to use GOP tactics to mock the GOP and GOP tactics. Basically I’m an enraged, ranting megalomaniac—at least on Twitter. Over 60,000 fine Twitter users follow LOLGOP. That’s more than follow the corporate sponsors of the tea party movement @FreedomWorks and four-times more than a likely […]Read more ›
In a major step forward in giving same-sex couples the ability to marry and have the same rights and protections as heterosexual couples, a federal appeals court in Boston today ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional.
