GOP blogger continues fake outrage
LANSING -- Can the Republican Party get any more petty, desperate and pathetic? You bet.
The guy who runs the official, unofficial GOP blog, “Right” Michigan, stood out in the rain Thursday to video tape people arriving at a lunch time fundraiser for Sen. Hansen Clark, D-Detroit, at the Michigan Beer & Wine Wholesalers Association. He then put the images to the theme song for the TV series “Cheers” coupled with images of the Bush recession to try and make the impression that the world would come to an end because a lunch fundraiser was being held.
See, the huge crime was that you could also get a beer at the Michigan Beer & Wine Wholesalers Association. The lunch was just one of about seven events held in Lansing on Thursday to get the attention of lawmakers, two were held at the Michigan Beer & Wine Wholesalers Association alone. In fact, there were four held at that very building this week, and more will be more held there next week.
He made a big deal of the event being held at 11:30 a.m. Apparently, in his world lunch is evil Next Tuesday Rep. Tory Rocca, R-Sterling Heights, is holding a fundraiser at the very same time and same place on Tuesday. Will he be there with his camera? I doubt it.
If this is all the Republicans have; no wonder they are the minority party.
