Dems Freaked Out Over Peters

If Democrats Were Happy With Gary Peters To Replace Carl Levin, Then ...

Sometimes you have to read between the lines.

Probably little known to team Gary Peters, is that Lon Johnson was looking for a trade.  The Michigan Democrat Party seems to need a new power forward:

“.. “That was an amazing point in my career,” Battier said. “I was really nervous I was gonna be the reason we weren’t going to win a championship. I took it upon myself to say, ‘If we lose, it’s not going to be because I didn’t fight my ass off.’ I had to guard West, and he beat the hell out of me like he always does. But we somehow reinvented ourselves, and that was the birth of small ball.”

Battier is nearing retirement now, and he can no longer shoot, dribble, or defend like he once did. The Michigan Democratic Party recently called him to see if he might consider running to replace U.S. Senator Carl Levin, Battier said. He declined, but he’s closer to retirement than he is to the player who helped Miami unlock its identity. ..”

    Gee whiz, I cannot imagine why that would be?

    "Within his own Democratic base, more than one-third of voters from union households “don’t know who Mark Schauer is,” Czuba said, while 41 percent of Detroit voters have not heard of him and one-quarter of Democratic voters said they would vote for Snyder if the election were held today.

    “That’s a big problem for a candidate five months out and your base doesn’t know who you are yet,” said Czuba, president of the Glengariff Group."

    Still, I'm not too thrilled with the "alternative"...

    Much ado about nothing. C'mon, freaked out? Really? As if it would matter when Team R has a frumpy self-funding vagina canard that says, "I am open to, um looking at minimum wage. Well, that's why we need to look at it, but it has been a while since we've had an increase so, I want to be open to an increase. I'm sorry, what?" and a State Legislature that actually makes it a law for the Nerd's signature.

    Final vote, House, and Senate.

    Yes, some Dems may not appreciate Peters. But I bet, most do. I say political parties are relics and need and will fade away.
