Hometown Paper Rallies Around Editor

The Argus wraps itself around former editor Rich Perlberg in an attempt to brush off legitimate criticism of his 'Republican' bona-fides.

perlbergIt must hurt to be kicked there.


And man parts the size of watermelons.

Golly, its as if we’ve never offered an opinion before.  I can picture the call:

“Oh my gosh, they hurt my feelings..  please help..”

Of course, what good newspaper editorial department dogs its own former leader when he wants to turn hero and run for office in the ‘other party.’

That’s pretty much all I have to say.  Now Jennifer Hensley on the other hand? She has a bit more

In my ideal world, every primary race would have at least two candidates.  There would be a spirited campaign with in-depth media scrutiny, several debates or forums, and the voters could then compare their options and vote for the candidate who best represents their positions.  Human nature being what it is, this almost never happens.  Let’s use the Michigan 42nd House race as an exemplar.”

    This is my district. What hasn't been mentioned is that Jennifer is Vice-Chair of the County Party. I wouldn't classify her as an obscure blogger. She wasn't speaking as Vice Chair when she wrote that, but if Republican bonifides is an issue, she has them. I've gotten several mailings already.

    I got one from Rich which basically mentions what's on his website. Rich self described himself as a moderate Republican. He has a couple of signs out.

    I got a mailing from AFP which praised Lana on tax issues. I got two or three mailings directly from Lana's campaign. Lana is well known for the 2/3rd ballot initiative regarding taxes. It didn't pass, although I voted for it. I haven't seen her signs yet, but that campaign is too organized not to have them out soon.

    I haven't gotten mailings from Nick Fiani (who is president of Brighton School Board and has done a great job turning things around there), but I've certainly seen his big 4X8 signs.

    I saw two Dale Rogers signs in right of ways. He's a Novi teacher in Hamburg or Putnam Township who ran against Bill Rogers in the 2012 primary.
