And the cracks are widening.
More will start falling in to the opening.
The Michigan Republican party elite continue to demonstrate a lack of conscience and common sense.
Michigan GOP Chair Bobby Schostak was given a great deal of rescue line by grass roots guy Jack Hoogendyk yesterday, and instead of pulling himself out of the quicksand, he wrapped the line around his .. well, it just goes along with the "give a man enough rope" saying.
What a foolish thing to do.
Prior to Schostak pretending like the Republican grassroots give a damn about him or his supposed integrity, there WAS a solution to all of this that was not only available, but considered. The fate of the Michigan Republican party is one of interest to me. A suggestion made to one of the 4 who voted for the CHANGE in the rules after the fact was not rejected outright.

Bart Stupak was one of the first congress critters to self destruct and became quite toxic when voting for the Obamacare plan that does indeed provide a mechanism where babies can be slaughtered in the womb with payment by taxpayers. He betrayed the trust of his constituents, a decidedly right to life community of Upper Peninsula and Northern Lower Michiganders.
Stupaks betrayal came at a cost. He realized quickly enough that his upcoming campaign was probably a lost cause, and announced his decision to not run for reelection April 9, 2010.
In fact, many of those critters still pursuing the dream of perpetual political payoff through a lifetime of "service" are realizing they "stepped in it," and are currently running back home shaking off their jackboots so maybe it doesn't stink so much come November 2nd. The spell apparently has been broken, and the realization that overstepping constitutional authority might come at a cost.
They are pretending THEY didn't support the health care plan... though they might have voted for it.. another case of what "is.. is.." perhaps. They have gained new smarts as judgment day approaches in a month from now.
