Obviously RightMichigan.com is seen as one of the truest conservative voices in Michigan.
Yeah, I used the word 'obviously'. If it weren't so, we wouldn't be used as the initiation tool for the wet-behind-the-ears punk Republican fraternity, and its sponsoring institution, Sergeant Upton's Lonely Brain Club Band.
Because we have a(dare I say it) 'liberal' posting policy, nearly ANYONE could post here. In fact, if it isn't spam, and it isn't lefty talking points, (some people call them lies) we let the conversation stay. It allows for a free discussion, and sometimes it even gets fiery. Debate is good for the soul, and frankly sharpens the tools we use in fighting off the progressive horde.
Its the American way.
But posting here has apparently become the holy grail for some folks. The very same folks who were maybe once upon a time excited to go to the big city 'Mayberry', and hopefully find the icon with the single bullet in his shirt pocket, now find excitement in our editorial environment. So much so, that we are being used as the tool to try and (do the impossible) convince the conservative base that Fred Upton, who has the lowest conservative ranking for a congressman in Michigan, is the better candidate in the CD6 race. Not through a series of accolades for the man who banned what might be the greatest invention of the industrial age, but denigrating the character of the opponent Jack Hoogendyk through non substantiated claims and falsehoods.
And even as it was obviously a hit piece, it was allowed to remain.
Our commenting community quickly eviscerated the post adolescent author as was expected, and we did not expect to hear much from him again other than the weak rambling that is so often associated with such affairs. What he doesn't know, is the whimpering his mom hears at night from the basement is really bothering her.
Maybe its time for him to move out.
But we'll move along .. below the fold.
