There are dick moves and then there are DICK MOVES. This is the latter.

It’s not often you see an elected official act like this much of an asshole and to do it such a dickish and public way.
Ten minutes before the filing deadline to run for the Michigan House of Representatives on Tuesday, Rep. Roy Schmidt, a “Democrat” from the 76th District in Grand Rapids, switched parties and decided to run as a Republican. This gave the Democratic party no candidate in a very tough district for Democrats after last year’s redistricting.…
Or what I learned by thinking like a conservative news clown
This post is all about getting you to donate to Barrett for Wisconsin to defeat Scott Walker. You can do that now.
When North Carolina’s discriminatory and hateful Amendment One won by twenty points earlier in May, I thought, “I didn’t do enough. I should have done more.” (I think the President felt the same, BTW.)
This was a strange revelation to me. As a Democrat, my thought after a loss is usually: “XXXXXXX didn’t do enough.”
This time I thought, “Goddamit, I’ve gotta do something.”
I was like Michele Bachmann if she’d found out that her twenty-four year old son watches Glee.…
Let's roll!As I have reported before, Jackson County Democratic Party Chair Ruben Marquez has entered the race to challenge Tim "The Original Tea Partier" Walberg in Michigan's 7th Congressional District. Marquez announced after Republican Joe Schwarz declined to run as a Democrat. This gave him less than two weeks to secure the required 1,000 petitions signatures to get on the ballot for the August primary. He was successful.
More misogyny in the Michigan House of Representatives – Rep Frank Foster calls nurses union staffer a c**t
Boys will be
It's just another episode in a long, long string of episodes where some Michigan Republican men can't get into any sort of back and forth with a woman without whipping out the sexist derogatory slurs. This time, it's state House Representative Frank Foster.
While visiting the neighborhood of a Michigan Nurses Association staffer, he called her a "cunt".
Michigan elections officials had proof Emergency Manager repeal petitions were legal but kept it secret
AstonishingI find myself using the word "astonished" or "astonishing" a LOT lately when it comes to Michigan politics. My level of cynicism seems to be rising exponentially as each week passes when I see the outrageous and egregious things that Republicans are doing in our state. But this might take the cake.
Hint: It’s why arsonists love fire
Like Paul Ryan, Mitt has used this so-called debt emergency to propose a budget that cuts anything that doesn’t specifically benefit the rich. He then offers the richest Americans more tax breaks on top of the already untenable Bush tax breaks that were supposed to expire before the GOP let the economy become a global financial crisis.
Mitt claims that he’ll pay for some of his tax breaks with offsets—and Mitt, of course, refuses to name one offset.…
Getting to knooo-ooow you, getting to know all abooo-uuut you...Super, uber blogger Mark Maynard of the legendary MarkMaynard.com in Ypsilanti (and beyond) is resurrecting an event he used to hold semi-regularly called "Beer With Bloggers". It's a chance for us, the men and women behind the html code, to hang out with the folks that read our words and look at our photos and other artwork, answer your questions, and get drunk. Mark tells me the last time he did this (over two years ago), he had 90 people show up. The next Beer With Bloggers event is Thursday, May 31 from 7:00 until 9:00 p.m. at the Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti and YOU are invited. Details are after the jump.
Buy us a beer?
