Tag: Straw Polls
By Corinthian Scales, Section News
I've always held a fondness for Republican Michigander. Decent young man. Believes in what he does. I respect that. Do we always see eye-to-eye? Hell no. That's OK. It'd be boring otherwise. What's all the lead in about, CS? Glad you ask. I just took a yonder over to Dan's blog, and dammit, principle prevails from Dan, again.
Full disclosure. I'm not a tea party guy. I'm not an anti tea party guy. Sometimes I agree with various tea party individuals and sometimes I am in opposition. I want to make that clear.
That's a fair shake on the BS Rube Goldberg straw poll. Good assessment, Dan. The chattering class handling the incumbents are scrambling. Circle them wagons, boys - the taxpayers are awakening! Look, it's no secret to anyone that Brian Calley is the biggest joke in town if trying to paint him as a Conservative voice on the "Nerdy Ticket" to bigger government and higher taxes. C'mon folks, a contrived straw poll from this jagoff? AYFKM? Besides, even the late Ray Charles could see Strat Nat pulling strings from behind the curtain. Tacky.
Yessirree. It is said that bullsh!t sells but, who's buying it anymore? Not I. Good luck with that, Nerdy ticket...
