And that festering sore, which is the MiGOP credentials committee decision to change the rules for a change the in the outcome of the Michigan primary, is still an issue.
Doctor, I do believe it is gangrene!
And in our own civil war brought about by the corruption within the Michigan Republican party we will have to hold it down to cut off the bad parts. Sorry that it is so painful, but someone misplaced all the anesthesia.
I believe ts somewhere, along with the conscience of party leadership.

You know, for the first time I agree with that Trotskyite, Shopshire, who spends his taxpayer paid office time blogging.
In a post regarding the credentials committee decision to change the rules to favor the meme that Romney carried the day February 28, RM's post invited lefty love. Kevin Shopshire, alias Communications guru, who often lashes out (thats really ALL he does) at republicans and conservatives frequently, made like a broken clock, and may have found a point where he is right for the second time in his life. Shopshire made a valid point unfortunately:
Communications guru said...
The point he makes is that the Republican leadership, framed the election in such a way as to ensure Mitts selection here, and when THAT wasn't as clear a win as they would like, it was obvious the rules were changed to make it more so. And that Michigan Taxpayers, including Democrats (at least those who really work for a living) are footing the bill for this Kabuki theater presentation.
The "basic dishonesty of the party" meme is getting harder to defend so long as we have continued dominance by an establishment that operates not in a conservative fashion, but in one that continues to elevate those who play for power, not the good of the people.

Dear Michigan Republicans:
Stop it. All of it. Just stop.
It is truly amazing how we pay lip service to unity, then immediately turn around and try to tear each other apart. This gives aid and comfort to the enemy, and it stokes the mistrust that so characterizes our current political process.
The negative campaigning, the dirty tricks, the middle-of-the-night meetings that rewrite the rule book - does it matter? In the long run (meaning about six months from now), will any of this matter?

One thing that has not gone unnoticed by the grassroots Republicans and conservatives is that Saul Anuzis is the GOP guy who seems to be solely responding to the questions about the DeleGATE Change in Michigan.
Mike Cox, the CHAIR of the credentials committee isn't doing it. In fact, the former attorney general of Michigan has been pretty clear where he stands on the issue.
"I supported Mitt, but the vote was clearly wrong. It's kind of like Third World voting. We published rules and then we voted to change the rules."And even more quotes are available essentially saying the same thing.
Mr Cox an attorney, also joined by Eric Doster, the Counsel for the Michigan GOP voted NO to changing the rules on Wednesday night, with regard to delegate assignment. Even Holly Hughes is reported as saying she disagrees with the rules change.
Those who voted FOR? Bobby Schostak, Sharon Wise, and Bill Runco all voting for the change appear to have more of a silence following them. The last of the "gang of four", Saul Anuzis is the most heard, and continues to defend it as if it is a matter of life and death. Its as if it is his baby. His creation. HIS work.
I believe it is.
In fact, one Tea Party leader I have spoken to says it is a "test case" for NPV. A way that Saul can see if reassigning delegates can be done through further "weighting" of population heavy counties like Oakland.
