  • 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.

    OK, the title is a little misleading, but the reality is that the policies this administration advocates leaves no room for a state that thrives  on manufacturing, hunting, health care, tourism, or agriculture.

    (Promoted by Nick... GREAT user blog! Well done, KG.)

    Have you ever stayed up at night, couldn't fall asleep, even after watching re-runs of House/Senate Proceedings on C-Span arguing the minutiae details regarding their latest unconstitutional omnibus-{fill-in-cool-sounding-name-to-generate-publicity-in-the-next-24-hour-media-cycle}, and eventually after going through the dial for the gazillionth time just stopped on a channel where they had two (or more) people just having at it?

    You really don't know the players involved.

    Shark-Boy and Curry-Man against anybody.

    OBD v. Awesome Kong.

    Sting v. anyone.

    Randy Orton v. the latest person he attacked from  behind to gain the win.

    You really don't care you wins, you just like to watch two people you really don't care about just wailing on each other.

    Well, that's what'll happen in the 12 District in 2010.

    More information when we come back from the break.

    A record only John Cherry could love

    What is it with Michigan Democrats and a sudden abject lack of concern with an individual's record?  Last year, and correct me if I'm wrong, but it sure as heck seemed like every other television commercial was about how rotten the Bush record was and how John McCain, a man who conservatives will argue had very little in common with the former President, shared his record.

    We enter a new year and a new cycle and all of a sudden records of achievement and failure (especially) are a little less important.

    No.  That's not fair.  It isn't always that rotten records aren't important... sometimes they're actively embraced.  But let's start with the former.  Senator Carl Levin told the Kalamazoo Gazette that he plans on voting to approve President Obama's pick for Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner, despite his record as a multiple-year tax evader.  In fact, Levin tells us, he really couldn't care less that the man who'll be helming tax policy couldn't be bothered to pay his own taxes on time.

    Michigan's senior senator said he is more concerned about Geithner's close connections to Wall Street insiders than his failure to pay his income taxes...

    Geithner initially failed to pay more than $35,000 in 2001 to 2004 income taxes.

    See, it was an error, not an intentional tax dodge.  He just screwed up is all.  And that is supposed to be reassuring somehow.  Seriously?  The cat couldn't get his own personal taxes right for three years but he's going to adequately handle the entire nation's taxes during four of the most critical years in the history of the American economy?  

    Why don't I feel any better about this?

    Frankly, it's just a matter of perspective.  The best way for any of us to get over Levin's legendary partisanship may just be to remind ourselves how much worse the state of the Michigan Democratic Party is back here IN Michigan.  In DC they ignore foibles and failures of their own.  At home in Lansing they actively embrace them.
