  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    Nothing Like This Could Happen Here

    Certainly the credentials committees are ALWAYS straight up and honorable.

    A predetermined candidate would have no problem with an integrity breakdown in Michigan politics.  By golly OUR credentials committee would NEVER stoop to this miserable level of candidate manipulation, right?  Right???

    "This year, the Wisconsin GOP is on track for something like 2,000 delegates, which would be double the largest state convention. The majority of those are opposed to Tommy Thompson.

    Asa result, the GOP "Credentials Committee" met and tried to disqualify new delegates who signed up after county caucuses (signing up after the county caucuses is permissible under Article XIII, Section 4 of the Wisconsin GOP's constitution). The motion was defeated 7 to 5 with 4 absences. Now the state GOP wants to re-fight this fight tonight and get the 4 absentee committeemen to show up."


    Our guys have integrity.

    Character matters.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    As If Nothing Ever Happened - Day 26

    If one was to forget about February 29, life goes on for those who simply had to stonewall.

    Some of those who pretend they deserve the leadership positions within the Michigan GOP probably wish the issue could be silently allowed to pass on. The campaign which had been affected most directly has already made a point that it takes such underhanded manipulation of the rules a little more seriously.  Only a few days ago, the story began appearing in the regular media again.  This time with a promise by Reince Priebus that it would be looked into:

    "Now, Santorum campaign officials say Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus has offered personal assurances to a lawyer for Santorum that the RNC would look into the matter.

    Priebus, according to sources on Santorum's team, recently told Santorum campaign counsel Cleta Mitchell, a prominent Washington lawyer, that he would take action on a letter she sent to the RNC earlier this month requesting an "investigation" into what led a six-member committee of Michigan GOP officials to award 16 delegates to Romney and 14 to Rick Santorum after the race appeared to end in a delegate tie."

    It DID end in a delegate tie.

    We have demonstrated it already, with the rules, with statements by those voting FOR the change, (Schostak Feb 8) and with statements and memos by the honorable folks like Mike Cox, and Eric Doster.  We have pointed out the glaring hypocrisy, underhanded subterfuge of the process, and the subsequent damage control efforts convincing decent folk to support such treachery within the grand old party in Michigan.

    We should take this opportunity to remind at least one of them, that the memory of inappropriate management will be a heck of a lot slower to die.  Below the fold ~

    The Debate Ahead

    Cross-posted in The Wizard of Laws

    Tonight, eight Republican presidential candidates square off again for two hours of highly structured questions and answers.  This time, the debate takes place on the campus of Oakland University and will be televised by CNBC.  

    What to expect?

    At a correspondents breakfast this morning, debate moderators Maria Bartiromo and John Harwood forecast that the debate would center primarily around jobs and the economy.  The Michigan setting lends itself to that discussion, since the Enchanted Mitten is home to a reawakening automobile industry and a burgeoning renaissance of its own, courtesy of a Republican governor and Republican-controlled legislature.

    Still, we won't escape more questions on the Herman Cain sexual harassment allegations.  Should this be a topic during this precious time?  Good question, but here's why I think these questions will get asked:

    1.  This is television, it's about viewers and ratings.  The prurient element is a big ratings-getter.

    2.  It's the topic of the day, especially with Cain's press conference yesterday.

    3.  The moderators will want to see whether the other seven will rise to the occasion (sorry about that) and try to take advantage of Cain's misfortune.

    4.  Voters are certainly interested in whether a candidate can handle a crisis, especially since Obama has demonstrated he cannot.  These unconfirmed allegations may not be worthy of much, it's hard to say, but this is a situation where a nonsubstantive issue bumps up against the need to discern character, composure, and integrity.

    We'll see how it goes.

    The Last Samurai

    Japan's long history was one of tradition and honor.  The legendary samurai were the symbols of the honor and majesty of this once mighty empire.  The code of the samurai was symbolic of how the people aspired to live their lives.  They were the warrior class, the knights of their land, and the epitome of what was good in their land.  They lived lives of discipline, honor and service.
