There are dick moves and then there are DICK MOVES. This is the latter. NOTE: this post has been updated HERE. 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 […]Read more ›
Michigan elections officials had proof Emergency Manager repeal petitions were legal but kept it secret
I 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.Read more ›
The utter lametude of the Romney campaign’s (attempted) slam on President Obama’s first campaign rally
Seriously? That’s all you have?
On Saturday, Romney campaign spokesman Ryan Williams tweeted this:
The photo was clearly taken before President Obama’s first campaign rally got underway. The empty section you see on either side of the tunnel coming out onto the main floor was directly behind the media stand so nobody was seated there intentionally. You can see this in the panoramic image my wife, Anne C. Savage, took while she was there. Go fullscreen with the pano and zoom in on the section in question and
When that’s all you have, you are in BIG trouble.

Remember this? Most people don’t, at least not correctly.
Most people probably remember George W. Bush swooping down out of the sky in a fighter jet and alighting onto the deck of the USS Lincoln aircraft carrier to give a rousing war speech under a gigantic “Mission Accomplished” banner.
You probably remember that the USS Lincoln was in the Persian Gulf at the time and our “Wartime President” was there to celebrate the liberation of Iraq. Right?
Wrong.Read more ›
We’re not taking this BS lying down
The Koch Brothers group Americans for Prosperity has launched a $6.1 million ad attacking President Obama. You can tell they are prosperous when they spend over $6 million on one ad. In fact, this is now the second time Americans for Prosperity has nearly $6 million on an attack ad against the president.
I won’t link the odious ad but you can watch it HERE if you must.
Obama for America (OFA), the Obama reelection campaign, has responded quickly and, to my mind, very effectively. This response video is pretty unusual. It…Read more ›
Projection Alert! Romney says “The Obama campaign is like one of those gyrating, intermittent lawn sprinklers”
Mirror, mirror on the wall…
In one of the snidest, most nasty press releases I have ever read, the Romney campaign engaged in a round of psychological projection that is truly transcendent. It’s clearly an effort to take Mitt Romney’s Achilles Heel and then attempt to smear President Obama with the same tar brush.
The result is so comically laughable that even those on the right have to be giggling about it…Read more ›
What’s more pathetic? That he says these things or that people believe them?
Last night, Mitt Romney assumed the mantle of Republican nominee for the 2012 presidential election. Newt Gingrich thinks that’s insulting (to voters, he says) and Ron Paul thinks… well, who knows what Ron Paul thinks?
What came out of Mitt Romney’s mouth was a string of lies as long as the plane trip between here and the last job he outsourced.
Let’s take a look…Read more ›
