In the spirit of all the "Bad Apples" discussion happening in the background here on RightMichigan.com, it's time to provide a field report on the Northern Michigan RINO activity of milquetoast Willy & Planned Parenthood Helen, Honorary Co-Chairs of M-LCV, currently promoting renewed Watermelon* propaganda on billboards to aid the Democrat Party in CD-1.
So, what set the cult of dirt worshiping loons off their organized collectivist rocker? Sincerity from, Rep. Benishek.
"I'm not sure how significant global warming is," he said during the debate. "I spent a lot of time in the sciences, and you know, I'm not exactly sure what's happening with the climate."
Yessirree. Droughts, shmouts, besides; Debbie can feel it when she's flying! Tolerant Leftist strike again, and damn any substance in discourse. 'Cause dammit! Al Gore's mockumentary said the earth is dying, and that big yellow thing in the sky can be taxed.
*Green on the outside - commie Red on the inside.
Gary McDowell's latest commercial says "The Democrats don't want to cut the spending."
But I ask you this Gary, when have you ever wanted to cut spending? I remember a certain former state rep. who voted for the Granholm Stimulus, the Michigan Business Tax and supports Obamacare!

Sunlight is the best disinfectant? Then let the sun shine, baby...
GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Calling Grand Rapids Community College "a cornerstone of our community for the past 96 years," Mayor George Heartwell is urging colleagues to pass a resolution of support for a millage that would ensure the school "can continue to serve their growing student population into the next century."
So, what is the pay and benefit packages for GRCC employees compared to the private sector? Ya, it's the buildings being neglected in this 'shared sacrifice' equation alright.
Why 'ol Mayor Heartwell and Chief Walking Eagle would make perfect wealth redistributing bookends, yes?

I have marveled over the last few years at how often during Republican events and affairs, I would run across a certain Derek Bailey.
Who is Derek Bailey, you ask?
He is the current tribal chair of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa & Chippewa Indians. Purveyors of environmental activism in the region, supporters of Democrat causes everywhere, and proprietors of the Traverse Bay Resort and Casinos. His ability to move in an 'nonpartisan' manner through all manner of fundraisers for local politicians will undoubtedly reap untold benefits in his new venture.
Mr Bailey is running for congress in the first congressional district as a Democrat.
Truly he is a Democrat, touting the napehair raising 99 percent hogwash:
"And what I learned -- and what I believe today -- is that now more than ever, we must stand up for equity for America's worker, the 99 percent, not wealth for the top one percent of corporate CEOs."And reminding us that our public education system is riddled with the fomenters of such madness.
Mr Bailey faces a challenger August 7, 2nd timer Gary McDowell who lost to Dan Benishek easily in 2010. McDowell will not have the help he received from the Democrats this time around however, and Bailey, while presenting a mild version of liberalism on his campaign site, carries another agenda entirely.
21 of them in fact. ~ Below the fold. ~

Give them an inch,...
Michiganders, much like the rest of the nation, have found themselves organizing and protesting and committing themselves to change. Bart Stupak was a "marked man" for his capitulation with the Obama administration and his willingness to go against the wishes of his constituents, Michigan's 1st Congressional District.
A seat held for multiple terms by a Democrat, saw a number of candidates make a bid in the Republican primary. Those candidates sensing the public has finally begun to understand a Democrat shift leftward towards socialism, decided the time was at hand to make a run for that office. The primary produced a conservative Republican candidate, and a Democrat candidate who is likely to be fairly similar to Stupak. (Without the baggage of lying to his constituents)
It seemed as though the race would be clear. Whomever delivers a solid message that speaks to the values of CD1 voters would win the seat. And given the sentiment towards the administration which has not yet gotten it right, a Republican victory by Dan Benishek seemed to be the most likely outcome. A 4-5 point victory perhaps, and maybe even tighter if the big labor element and the Michigan Democrat party spends a few dollars propping up its candidate.
Recent polling bears out a pretty solid lead by Benishek, with a 13 point lead over McDowell in a 2 way race, and a 14 point lead over McDowell in a four way race that includes a disqualified fake tea candidate, and a candidate pulling 6% who would seem a likely spoiler.

From the KOS, where every now and again in the spirit of broken clocks they can be correct twice a day:
"MI-01: Primary ends with concession, despite vote margin in the teens
I am pretty sure they misspelled "teapartyguy" on purpose, but I left it unchanged for proper context.

Michigan has its share of "collaborators" with the Obama Pelosi plan of destroying our economy.
One of them targeted by Americans For Prosperity advertising is Mark Schauer..
But next to Schauer's capitulation with the leftist agenda is the liklihood of that by 1st district seat contender Gary McDowell. (below the fold)
