"Hey I'm your Brother" said Cain to Abel before dispatching him.
And THAT was "family".
In defense of Republicans who have sold out to Obamacare expansion in Michigan, Lt. Guv Brian Calley issued a letter that attempts to re-unify Republicans who have felt the knife of betrayal from Michigan's executive branch and legislature these past two weeks. The plea to accept Obamacare "as the law of the land" frankly falls on deaf ears, and his words add insult to injury when saying there is a conservative argument for passage.
No really there is no such thing.
And Jen Kuznicki does a fine job of pointing it out. She breaks down into sections his screed, and analyzes the mental disconnect that is being argued. At one point noting his argument of being a conservative:
Me thinks she has a point.I have always been a principled conservative voice inside the administration, but when the Governor makes a decision I will support and help implement that decision.
Its a sad day when the poison from our own flag bearers can so corrupt the conscious decisions of those who would otherwise be considered conservative to a point where they are no better than those who pass all manner of progressive policy. Its hurtful to watch grown men insinuate that they HAVE TO back such heresy for the good of the party.

Jen Kuznicki Hits it on the head.
In a piece that starts with discussion of Rush Limbaugh's out-reach efforts to the low infomation community, Jen properly describes 'moderates' for what they are:
"Conservatives catch flak for being confrontational, judgmental, and overly critical of members of their own party. But what do moderates do? They go out of their way to be non-confrontational, non-judgmental, and only critical of conservative members of their party. They have "friends on the other side of the aisle" instead of opposition. They harp on tone and finesse while the nation is going down, and they deny that is even happening. They are witnessing the demise of their nation, but aren't too damn upset about it, because they don't know it's happening.""Only critical of conservatives .." Indeed.
Worth reading the rest.

Michigander Jen Kuznicki makes some great points during a critique of Dick Lugar's 'concession speech' last night.
The not so gracious Lugar had a few things to say after getting the kick in the jewels reminder that nothing is permanent last night to a Roll Call reporter. In the short blog piece answering his statement, "Well there's your problem, Dick", her analysis nails down the essence of the RINO mentality:
"Rejectionist orthodoxyThis particular blog post drew the attention of none other than conservative radio host Mark Levin this morning, where he posted it on his fan page.
H/T to Levin. Indeed.
