Terri Lynn Land, candidate for U.S. Senate in Michigan, has a new ad out this week that is one more piece in a string of evidence proving that she is truly clueless about what it takes to govern, particularly in Washington, D.C. Her new childish ad is called “Stop Fighting, Start Listening”. In it, she tells us that she can […]Read more ›
Fear of retribution from Snyder administration appears to kill Progress Michigan’s anti-Snyder billboard in Lansing
What the heck did Chris Christie SAY when he was in Michigan last month??? Progress Michigan ran an anti-Rick Snyder digital billboard in Lansing, Ann Arbor, and Allen Park today — Tax Day — as part of the effort to raise awareness of Republican tax hikes on seniors, middle class, and poor Michiganders over the past three years. Actually, it’s […]Read more ›
Actually, it’s more like the Koch brothers’ campaign… Terri Lynn Land can best be described as the U.S. Senate candidate in absentia. Unlike her Democratic opponent Gary Peters who has been touring the state talking to voters, Land hasn’t made public appearance in months, not one where she could be asked direct questions since she began her tepid campaign to […]Read more ›
As GOP popularity tanks nationally over #GOPshutdown, Americans United runs ads against vulnerable legislators
We Will Make Them Famous And You Will Know Their Names Things are not looking good for the Republican Party these days. Poll after poll shows that they are bleeding support in literally historic fashion. Here’s the most recent Gallup poll: [Image credit: Anne C. Savage, special to Eclectablog] With the Republican-controlled House of Representatives engaged in a tense, government-shuttering […]Read more ›
We need to educate our friends, relatives and coworkers!
The Detroit Free Press released an astonishing poll recently that showed that in the two Supreme Court races, one for a partial term and one with two seats open for full terms, more than 75% of voters are undecided. Three-quarters of the voters don’t know who to vote for. Of course, Eclectablog readers know:
Now it’s time to share this information with as many Michiganders as you can. An easy way of doing that, of course, is to print out the Eclectablog Voters Guide (pdf) and hand it out widely.
As your reward, I present you with the the bloopers and outtakes from Bridget McCormack’s massively viral West Wing public service announcement (after the jump.)Read more ›
I love this new ad from President Obama. It lays out his accomplishments and his goals for the future succinctly and in a positive way.

West Wing ad for Supreme Court candidate Bridget McCormack a smashing success – here are the numbers
On Thursday morning, I posted a 4-minute long online ad paid for by the campaign to elect Bridget Mary McCormack to the state Supreme Court. In fact, Eclectablog was one of the first to get it and have it available. Since then, the West Wing reunion spot has gone crazy viral.

THIS is how you do it!
When I interviewed Michigan Supreme Court candidate and University of Michigan law professor Bridget Mary McCormack earlier this week, I told you that today was going to be a big day for her. And it is. In addition to receiving the coveted endorsement from Democracy for America, the McCormack campaign released a new online ad. But this isn’t just any ad. This ad was filmed with cast members from The West Wing and looks like an episode of the blockbuster show.
The ad talks about a national emergency that’s in progress: people are voting in the partisan section of the ballot but NOT in the non-partisan section where they judges are elected and the ballot initiatives are voted on. It also highlights the amazing background and work done by McCormack.
It’s a smart, funny, and very entertaining way to get the point across while endorsing a terrific candidate for the state Supreme Court. Watch it after the jump.Read more ›
When protective bargaining wins, we ALL win
The Protect Our Jobs coalition, also known as Protect Working Families, is working to pass a ballot initiative that would put protections for collective bargaining in the state constitution. This group just released a new television ad that shows how collective bargaining helped save that domestic auto industry in America.
