  • 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.

    Santorum To Speak At Grosse Pointe High School

    Briefly, complaints by some teachers had caused school officials to rescind an invitation for Rick Santorum to speak at the school.

    Today we learn that a change of heart has occurred.

    "I've learned some things here. I wish we could wind back the clock a bit on this," Principal Matt Outlaw told The Associated Press.

    "I spoke to the senator. I apologized for the situation," Outlaw said. "He's very excited to come here. He mentioned that he's been to the Grosse Pointe community many times. ... We think we'll have a very large crowd."

    Indeed you will.

    Busses Have Consequences

    I remember well a certain story told about Chuck Yob and the 1992 Republican National Convention.  During the 1992 Republican Presidential Primary Campaign, Pat Buchanan had finished better than expected in state primaries (frequently a strong second), even though President Bush, sr., had won every single statewide contest.  Nevertheless, Buchanan's campaign wanted to use their "victories" as a reason to exert some influence over the national platform, obtain some delegate seats, and receive a few favorable speaking slots.

    That year, Yob was the chairman of the credentials committee, and during one of their meetings was invited into a side room into a conference with Rich Bond (then the RNC Chairman) and President Bush.  Bay Buchanan, Pat Buchanan's sister and campaign manager, was expected to be making an appearance at the meeting, and the president had some instructions for what he thought needed to be done.

    What Bush wanted Yob to do was to let Buchanan lay out her entire case, put all her cards on the table.  After that, he was to spend the next 5 hours picking apart all of her arguments, and keep her in that room arguing her case for the rest of the afternoon.  And then, at 4 o'clock, he was to give up and let Buchanan have whatever she was still asking for.  She'd take the story back to her people that they'd fought all day with the establishment, and at least got them to give ground on what really mattered.  The story that would go back to the Bush supporters that they'd negotiated all day with the challenger's team, and finally given them their way on some positions that really didn't matter . . . for the good of the party.

    I think that there is a lesson taught here that really should have been applied to the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary Campaign . . . and the 2012 Republican National Convention (especially when viewed in light of the 1964 campaign).

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    How To Replace Party Leadership

    I have more than once on this site cited a paraphrase of John F. Kennedy's warning:  Those who insist on making a peaceful takeover impossible will ultimately make a takeover by revolt inevitable, and perhaps even necessary.  Since we cannot seem to trust the blueblood elites in the establishment to get the message, let's go below the fold and discuss an idea to "grease the skids" for their removal from power.

    And Then There Were Two

    via Detroitnews.com

    Two advisers to Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich say he will formally end is campaign next Tuesday and will likely endorse Mitt Romney.

    Gingrich had pinned his hopes on a surprise showing in Delaware but fell short.

    He had been hinting in recent days that his campaign was nearing an end. His decision to officially shut down the effort comes as Romney has a lock on the GOP nomination.

    Rest here

    Parting question... Did anyone else wonder why Newt chose to keep Callista's Angry Bird mug by his side every moment of his campaign to remind ALL female voters that he never was able to keep his pecker in his pants as a married man?

    Settled Matter -- Or Not

    If we are to believe the drive-by media meme that's been in the political news cycle for the past week or so, we're already in the general campaign for the 2012 presidential election.  Never mind that His Mittenness is still between 468 and 594 committed delegates short of the number needed in order to secure a pre-convention majority.  Ignore the truths that Newt Gingrich is still in this race, and that Rick Santorum is still entitled to most of his delegate accumulation.  Right now, as far as the mainstream press is concerned, all we republicans should be caring about is how much money Romney can raise in order to credibly challenge Obama and who he ought to select as his running mate.

    Yet again, we need to go back to Yogi Berra . . . and then go below the fold.

    Weekend Divertere - A History of Theft

    Ben Swann, "Reality Check" anchor at WXIX-TV in Cincinnati (FOX-19), has been following some of the shenanigans that have been going on as the Republican Party has been engaging in a coordinated strategy of process manipulation and political larceny, with the apparent goal of leveraging the coronation of Willard Mitt Romney (the Rockefeller blueblood elite heir-apparent) as their nominee to lose to Barack Hussein Obama in November.  A video history pulled from the Reality Check YouTube Channel follows the break.

    Its About Family After All

    I believe we have been very clear about the values represented at RightMichigan.com.

    Consistently over the years, a strong value driven community has developed.  Even throughout, and ESPECIALLY through the last couple of months of challenge with our own favored party, we have remained consistent to our principles. We believe in following the rules, we believe in principle over party. And our dedication to the family unit, and the sanctity of life, and the miracle of God we see through our children carries us through even the losses we must endure.

    The trials Bella Santorum has undergone in her short life are incredible when contrasted with much of our own experiences.  Her hurt could only be second however, to that which her loving parents must endure as she faces a certain fate.  The loss of such a precious child can only be amplified by the value in which the Santorums place God's gift.

    A gift that brought such joy to a family that seemingly had so much already.

    Let us not forget the contrasts between us and those whom we oppose politically.  This lesson in the best of humanity, the resignation of Rick Santorum's campaign in favor of perhaps a very short time left he can spend with his daughter only drives home the difference more clearly.

    Many of those on the left would have never allowed such a miracle to occur.
