  • 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.

    To Accomplish Replacement . . . And Why

    And no, I'm not talking about Randy Richardville, though I agree that he needs to go, too.  Nope, I'm referring to a different scoundrel here.

    Last Sunday, on the Dump Saul Anuzis facebook page, I wrote:

    "While all of this various and sundry political talk is very fascinating, let's please keep our primary objective in mind . . . that of dumping Saul Anuzis as Michigan's RNC National Committeeman. We do need to start recruiting a potential challenger, and develop a delegate strategy (using the 2010 pool) to accumulate the votes necessary to dump him."

    The conversation threads, both on the page and in the group, were starting to get a tad afield of the original purpose, which is to focus the efforts to replace Saulius Anuzis as Michigan's Republican National Committeeman.  Best to stay focused here, as we only have about seven weeks left to work with.  Grab a pot of coffee, and let's go below the fold.

    via detroitnews.com

    Santorum's campaign said Wednesday it expected a 15-15 tie with the delegates because both candidates won seven congressional districts. There was confusion over how the two at-large delegates would be distributed.

    The committee voted 4-2 to give both delegates to Romney, who won the popular vote in the primary, 41 percent to 38 percent.

    Yob said the same committee set the rules on the delegates before the election and now they are voting to break them because it threatens Romney.

    "This move questions the legitimacy of the Michigan Republican Party leadership and proves the Romney team is willing to do anything to win the election including breaking party rules," Yob said.

    Two messages left with a Michigan Republican Party spokesman were not immediately returned.

    Amazing how quickly MI-GOP Chair Schostak can mobilize for their chosen son Elder Romney in regards to Michael Moore, but responding to their vote to violate already established delegate rules?  Nah.  Not a peep.

    Continued below the fold

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    MIGOP 2011 State Convention - Vice-Chair Election Results

    Just before the 2011 MIGOP State Convention, Troy Rolling, who was Bobby Schostak's challenger for MIGOP State Chair (and who was running without a Co-Chair candidate) withdrew his name from consideration, and his withdrawal letter was presented at the district caucuses on Friday night.  This left now-Chairman Schostak running unopposed.  After he and his co-chair Sharon Wise were unanimously approved by the General Session on Saturday, and a few speeches (Ron Weiser actually referenced my interview with him during his address), the convention got down to the business of nominating, supporting, and electing the MIGOP vice-chairs for the 2011 - 2012 term.  Those results, and some other observations, are below the fold.
