UPDATED: Former MIGOP spokesman who suggested it’s time for “armed insurrection” hired as MLive op-ed contributor

Are you freaking KIDDING me???

So, did you hear about the former Michigan Republican Party spokesperson who asked if the SCOTUS decision on the Affordable Care Act justified armed insurrection?

His name is Matthew Davis and he just got hired as an op-ed contributor by MLive, one of Michigan’s largest media outlets. I am, sadly, not kidding.

Citizens for Fiscal Responsibility waste tax payer money by taking Emergency Manager font issue to Supreme Court

Citizens for Fiscal Responsibility waste tax payer money by taking Emergency Manager font issue to Supreme Court

“Fiscal Responsibility” – I don’t think that means what you think it means

The absurdly named group Citizens for Fiscal Responsibility is taking their disenfranchising and deceitful case regarding the Public Act 4 repeal petition font size to the state supreme court.

Keep in mind that they already lost at the Court of Appeals level, including a rejection by the entire 28-judge appeals court panel. The Court of Appeals made it very clear the long-established precedent regarding “substantial compliance” of petitions is governs this case. {more…}

Former Michigan Republican Party spokesman suggests it’s time for armed insurrection after Obamacare is upheld (updated)

Former Michigan Republican Party spokesman suggests it’s time for armed insurrection after Obamacare is upheld (updated)

Shoot ’em up, shoot ’em up, rah, rah, rah!

For some on the right, this whole “every American having access to healthcare coverage” thing is just too goddam much. I wrote yesterday about some of the instant freakout responses. Today we have another and it’s a doozy.

Former Republican Party spokesman and Lansing “civil rights” attorney Matthew Davis sent out a press release titled “Is Armed Rebellion Now Justified?”.

His press release and more after the jump.

Supreme Court rules to uphold Obamacare, the right goes completely freaking nuts

Supreme Court rules to uphold Obamacare, the right goes completely freaking nuts

Going off of the rails on the crazy train…

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over two years since the Affordable Care Act, our beloved Obamacare, was signed into law. After all, the sky is still up, right?

Today’s Supreme Court ruling upholding the constitutionality of Obamacare is exactly what happens when the right challenges the constitutionality of a law that was supported, endorsed, and championed by a president who is a constitutional scholar: they get their asses handed to them. The result has been predictable, even if the SCOTUS ruling was not.

Romney’s past says everything you need to know about how he’d govern & who he’d represent as president

Romney’s past says everything you need to know about how he’d govern & who he’d represent as president

Not just the past — the past WEEK

It hasn’t been a good week or two for Mitt Romney. His past, which he seems to think nobody will look at, think about, or care about, is beginning to catch up with him.

Between his record as a failed job-creator as a governor and a successful jobs-destroyer as a businessman as well as a rare glimpse at just who he will be beholden to if he is elected, Mitt Romney has a severe and awesome image problem to overcome.

One I doubt that he will.

Much, much more after the jump.

Please Allow Me to Introduce Mitt Romney

Please Allow Me to Introduce Mitt Romney

What Democrats learned from 2004 Here’s the bad news: While the American economy is still doing better than the most of the industrialized world, it’s still a bummer. You know the private sector is doing quite well compared to the public sector. If the GOP hadn’t forced layoffs of more than 600,000 workers in the public sector, the unemployment rate […]

3 Things to Tell Anyone Considering Voting for Mitt Romney

3 Things to Tell Anyone Considering Voting for Mitt Romney

I know it’s hard to believe but Romney voters are out there. The key thing is to not argue with them. Arguing often makes people defend a position they don’t actually have. So I suggest you just say this: Well, things are much better off now than they were when Bush left them. 27 months of creating jobs. We’re out […]
