Kos Wants Fun Denying Representative Democracy To Michigan Voters

Via My Vast Rightwing Conspiracy

I was going to quip that Kos acts just like a union thug fixing an election, but then I thought he'd probably take that as a compliment.

Let's have some fun in Michigan

Michigan Democrats should vote for Mitt Romney, because if Mitt wins, Democrats win. How so?

For Michigan Democrats, the Democratic primary is meaningless since the DNC stripped the state of all its delegates (at least temporarily) for violating party rules. Hillary Clinton is alone on the ballot.

But on the GOP side, this primary will be fiercely contested. John McCain is currently enjoying the afterglow of media love since his New Hamsphire victory, while Iowa winner Mike Huckabee is poised to do well in South Carolina.

Meanwhile, poor Mitt Romney, who’s suffered back-to-back losses in the last week, desperately needs to win Michigan in order to keep his campaign afloat. Bottom line, if Romney loses Michigan, he’s out. If he wins, he stays in.

And we want Romney in, because the more Republican candidates we have fighting it out, trashing each other with negative ads and spending tons of money, the better it is for us. We want Mitt to stay in the race, and to do that, we need him to win in Michigan.
Two polls the last couple of days show a tight race: Strategic Vision (R) shows Romney within striking distance with 20 percent to McCain’s 29 (Huckabee is third with 18), while Rossman Group shows Huckabee with the lead — 23 percent to Romney’s 22 and McCain’s 18.
Now here’s the thing — without a real Democratic contest on the ballot, and a lack of party registration in Michigan, this is an open primary. Anyone can pick up a Republican ballot. So Michigan Democrats and independents who want to see the Republican battle royale continue should just take a few minutes on Tuesday, January 15th to cast a ballot for Mitt Romney in the Republican primary.

If you know someone in Michigan, send them the email I’ve included below the fold. If you don’t know someone in Michigan, send the email to your liberal friends and see if THEY have friends in Michigan. Get the word out, whether by blog, mailing list, MySpace or Facebook page, or whatever.

If we can help push Mitt over the line, not only do we help keep their field fragmented, but we also pollute Romney’s victory. How “legitimate” will the Mittster’s victory look if liberals provide the margin of victory? Think of the hilarity that will ensue. We’ll simply be adding fuel to their civil war, never a bad thing from our vantage point.

Liberals like Kos would whine and cry like wittle babies if mean old Republicans upset their process to make America what they want it to be.

No Swearing Damn It

St. Louis-area town considers proposal that would ban swearing in bars

What the ...? A St. Louis-area town is considering a bill that would ban swearing in bars, along with table-dancing, drinking contests and profane music.

City officials contend the bill is needed to keep rowdy crowds under control because the historic downtown area gets a little too lively on some nights.

So, this law would give law enforcement another tool to control the uncontrollables, if they choose. Does that mean selective enforcement, say like hearing the other way when an off duty buddy swears after one drink too many Boiler Makers or arresting a person the cop just doesn't like the looks of over a damn or hell?

I am a big fan of the police. I am not a big fan of the police as judge over which laws to enforce or not enforce. I am no fan of cheap suit feel good laws that aren't meant to be uniformly enforced.

Under this law, if I was a cop, I would make mass arrests for any bartender, owner or customer that played Nine Inch Nails. I hate crappy music.

Good Gawd Almighty I Must Missed The Memo

GOP Rivals Back Tax, Spending Cuts in SC

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Republican presidential rivals backed a blend of tax and spending cuts Thursday night to head off an election-year recession they generally agreed is avoidable.

Breathlessly the nation waits to see if these maverick Republicans will go out on the limb of tax cuts for the other 49 states.

"Make fun buddy," muttered a clearly irritated Paul.
